This eight-session small group Bible study DVD, 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.
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 and reveals unique insights into the Scriptures' significance for modern believers.
The Life & Ministry of the Messiah DVD sessions were filmed on location in Herodion, Masada, Qumran, Krazin/Mount of the Beatitudes, Gamla, Sepphoris, Belvoir, and En Gedi.
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.

DianaOklahoma City, OKAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentMay 10, 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.

His approach is from the perspective of Christianity's Hebraic roots, something that has been lost for far too long! This will open your eyes to accurate and very informative biblical teaching!

It gives a lot of background for the events of Biblical times and allows you to see the places where it all took place. It is a wonderful complement to a study of scripture. Our church is using the series for Sunday School and I bought this individual video for my dad for Father's Day. I highly recommend it.

Barry Mershon5 Stars Out Of 5May 27, 2010Barry MershonI have used this CD along with another one for our small group on Wedesday nights. Every one was thrilled with what they saw and what they had learned. No matter how long you have studied the Word of God, Ray Vander Lann always has something to stir your soul and to make you want to study more. His insights are always so enlightening..
