Israel's Mission: That the World May Know + Giveaway

"That the World May Know: a Discovery Lesson" is a series of video/film sessions on experiencing the Bible in historical context led by Ray Vander Laan. This review will be focused on Volume 13: Israel's Mission: Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World.  Just based on this volume alone, I can say the series is one of enrichment, focus and experience.




A powerful experience through the marriage of biblical historic facts with current location of biblical locations, "Israel's Mission" is beyond any typical Bible study.  The film was beautiful and brings many settings in the studies to life.  Along with the film, a very substantial study guide will provide insight, enriched your minds and bring focus to any participant.  This volume includes 5 lessons, with an episode each, along with Scripture passages to explore, additional information and study tools and featured questions that facilitate discussion and inspire personal reflection.

The 5 lessons filmed on location in the Middle East are:
  1. Abraham and Sarah and Three Strangers (Negev, Israel)
  2. Israel at Sinai: The First Great Commision (Timnah, Israel)
  3. Jesus Renews the Mission: Seeking the Lost (Qatzrin, Israel)
  4. The Lost Son: In a Far Country (Jerash, Jordan)
  5. The Seeking Father: The Lost on Returns (Qatzrin, Israel) 
I find these lessons extremely informative and powerful. I did not do these studies in a group setting, but I strongly recommend it for such. It will inspire discussion, and because the amount of personal assignment and preparation is more than a typical daily study, a group study meant for weekly meetings will allow for that time.  However, if you are up for it, feel free to pace it yourself whichever way you feel comfortable.  Another point I really enjoyed is the amount of Scripture relative to the film and historical information provided. You will learn not only the ways and works of God, you will be immersed in the culture and how the stories in the Bible relates to us in modern times.  Knowledge and  contemplation is the outcome of "Israel's Mission".  If that is what you want, go and get Ray Vander Laan's That the World May Know series, and especially this one. You won't be disappointed. I wasn't.

And now through September 18th, That the World May Know through Litfuse Publicity Group is giving away the whole series (all 13 DVDs).  Check it out:
