ISRAEL'S MISSION ~ That the World May Know® Experience the Bible in Historical Context with Ray Vander Laan (Giveaway)

Thank you Litfuse for this review copy.
What is Israel's Mission? God gave the assignment to His people thousands of years ago: to bring "lost sheep" back into the love and safety of His kingdom. He said to become a "Kingdom of Priests," and put God on display to show the world what He is like. It's still our task today. In this thirteenth volume of the That the World May Know ® film series, you'll glimpse the urgency and rewards of welcoming the strangers and prodigals the Lord longs to embrace. Discover the mission that can give your life --- and the lives of those around you --- greater meaning than you ever imagined.
Join renowned teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan as he guides you through the lands of the Bible. In each lesson, Vander Laan illuminates the historical, geographical, and cultural context of the sacred Scriptures. Filmed on location in the Middle East and elsewhere, the That the World May Know® film series will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus.

My Thoughts
  • The insight that Mr. Vander Laan shares about customs and history make the context of the Bible make sense of the Bible.
  • I learned so much from this video. I've seen several videos in the series. 
  • Mr. Vander Laan has incredible insight into the eastern way of thinking as well as the historical context of the Bible. 
  • He did an excellent job of explaining how and why the Israelites were God's chosen people to share and spread faith in the one true creator God to all those "ites" around them.
  • The quality of the production is unexcelled.
  • There is a study book that gives additional information that can be used by oneself for study or as part of a Bible study group.
Enjoy this taste of Israel's Mission.

Focus on the Family brings you Volume 13, Israel's Mission: Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World, the latest release in Ray Vander Laan's popular That the World May Know® video series. It features Vander Laan's unique method of Bible teaching and takes viewers on location to give context to the original writings.

Vander Laan has always believed that to more greatly understand and appreciate the Bible, one had to have a sense of the land and the culture from which it sprang. Biblical analogies and examples, while meaningful and helpful even to this day, were first meant to convey God's truth to particular people in a particular time and place. So the more fully we can appreciate those times and places, the more fully we can respond to the power of the Word.
