Understanding Gods Word by experiencing--in full DVD technology--the world in which Jesus lived. This DVD version of The True Easter Story is not a superficial Holy Land travelogue, but a total cultural immersion directed by teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan. Using his knowledge of ancient Jewish holidays and little known customs, Vander Laan probes the true depth of the Easter story as it begins 2,000 years earlier with a simple promise between a man called Abraham and Almighty God. Gods keeping of that promise reveals a beautifully intricate masterpiece of love for human kind--love fully realized centuries later in Jesus resurrection and his gift of eternal life.
