Publisher's Description

This eight-session small group Bible study, Life & Ministry of the Messiah, from noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume three of the 12-part Faith Lessons series. In it, Vander Laan illustrates how Jesus’ call to follow him turned the world upside down.

Journey back to the time of Jesus. Marvel at the magnificence of Herod’s palace. Scramble among the ruins of Qumran. And wonder at the simplicity and wisdom of Jesus’ parables. In the Life & Ministry of the Messiah, you and your group will discover how the events of Jesus’ day impacted his life, ministry and communication…and then you’ll learn how it affects yours.

Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God's Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures' significance for modern believers.

The Life & Ministry of the Messiah Discovery Guide (296 pages) includes eight sessions. Each lesson…

- Focuses on passages of Scripture explored in the DVD
- Includes sidebars, maps, photos and other study tools
- Features questions that facilitate discussion and inspire personal reflection
- Includes 30 personal Bible studies to help you deepen your learning experience between sessions, and turn lessons from the past into applications that impact how you live out your faith today.

The Faith Lessons video series is ideal for use in small groups, personal and family Bible studies, and adult Sunday school.

    This book and the whole series is Excellent. If you want to learn more about the culture and how it sheds new light on scripture this series does that. Example I learned in this book the bride went to live in the groom's father's house when she got married. He would build unto the father's house and then come and get her. It really makes since when God calls us his bride and he is going to his Father's house to prepare a place for us.

    Having lived and worked in Israel for three years, this study allows me to bring more to the table. Ray VanderLaan's presentation, in itself, is truly fascinating, interesting, and to the point. Whether you agree with all his points or not, you will rethink all you've learned in the past. I've facilitated this study as well as quite a few others from this series. People attend! They dig into Scripture. They investigate. They become involved. I highly recommend this study and the entire series to anyone wanting to understand more fully the Holy Land, the time of Jesus (and his ministry), our Christian roots, and how God's plans will be fulfilled . . . no matter what we, as human beings, do. Additionally, it gives you scope of the land, erasing what I refer to as the "Cecil B. DeMille mentality" -- all that we've been exposed to in cinema throughout the years. Give it a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    The Bible study includes many scriptures on each topic, allowing the student to delve deeper into God's word. In addition, the cultural information provides a wonderful insight to Biblical lands, peoples, and archeological findings. All this helps one gain a deeper understand of the scriptures. Our church group has enjoyed and appreciated this study.

Q: How many individual lessons are in each one? Just wondering if each one is one lesson or does each one have a series of lessons. Are there materials to pass out and study with also?

A:

Each Faith Lesson Discovery Guide (e.g. The Life and Ministry of the Messiah) features 5 - 8 Sessions which accompany the DVD. No, there are no materials other than the guide and the DVD.
