Israel's Mission, DVD and study guide {a review}

About the DVD

Israel’s Mission, That the World May Know DVD Volume 13 (Focus on the Family, July 2015)

What’s your 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.

Designed for use with That the World May Know: Israel’s Mission Discovery Guide.

Filmed on location at these biblically significant sites in Israel and Jordan:

—Back to the Father’s House – Negev Desert
—Show Them the Way – Timnah
—Prodigal Sons and Daughters – Qatzrin
—Return from the Far Off Country – Jerash
—Welcome Home – Qatzrin

What I thought about the DVD

I've long thought it would be intriguing to visit The Holy Land, but I don't see that happening in my lifetime. This video can be the next best thing. It's very well done (except that I found the background sound often drowned out the speaker). I found the information Mr. Vander Laan shared to be fascinating, and brings in deeper understanding of the biblical culture.

This series of videos, along with the study guides, would be excellent for small group study, family study, or even individually. I plan to have my homeschooled teenage sons to go through this video and the study guide with me.
