This five-session small group Bible study DVD, Promised Land, by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume one of the 12-part Faith series. In it, Vander Laan explores how God guided his people to the Promised Land to impact the world both in ancient times and today. Just like the time and place of our birth shapes our journey, so the land and culture of the Hebrew people shaped their story.
This volume, Promised Land, was filmed on location in Tel Gezer, the Jordan River, Tel Jericho, Tel Beth Shemesh and Tel Azekah.
Faith Lessons is an in-depth video tour of the buried, distant, or otherwise forgotten places where the stories of the Bible actually happened. From this cultural perspective, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan challenges long-held Western assumptions about even the most well known Scripture passages.
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.
These illuminating "faith lessons" afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life. The Faith Lessons video series is ideal for use in small groups, personal and family Bible studies, and adult Sunday school. Individual believers and families will gain vital insights from long-ago times and cultures through this innovative approach to Bible study.
This DVD is designed for use with the Faith Lessons Promised Land Discovery Guide (158 pages; sold separately).

Bill5 Stars Out Of 5The entire seriesNovember 4, 2014BillQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a wonderful series, especially for a Sunday School Class, giving the geography, history and biblical faith lesson. They would be terrific for late teens to oldsters. If the class has not been to the mid east, it is especially good. Mr. Van der Laan is an instructor with a Biblical and historical background. Exceptional series.

Even though it is a much earlier production, it is as equally good as the others in the series.
DianaOklahoma City, OKAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentMay 1, 2013DianaOklahoma City, OKAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We were introduced to this series of DVDs in the mid 1990's at church and began buying them for our family. At first we used them for homeschooling Bible studies but we continued watching them over and over. Back then they were VHS and lately we've had problems with them wearing out and getting stuck in the VCR so we just ordered the first five again, this time on DVD. That's how good they are. We have all 12 and the study guides that go along with them and just continue to watch them in order from start to finish and never tire of them. Ray Vander Laan is an incredible, humble, insightful teacher and teaches from his heart as well as his mind. The scripture becomes much more real as he explains different cultures, customs and meanings of the Bible. Even though we have watched them many times it seems we still learn something new each time that we didn't pick up on before. Can't recommend these highly enough. Every time we get a catalog from CBD I open it first to these DVDs to check and see if #13 has arrived yet. We will continue to purchase them. It's the best Bible teaching my husband and I have ever received and we've been in church all our lives.

The class really likes seeing areas of the Holy Land and the discussion afterwards. The booklets are full of additional weekly indepth studies.
