Litfuse Publicity: Israel’s Mission Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World DVD with Ray Vander Laan

on September 19, 2015

About the DVD:

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.

My Opinion:

I love when I can pair a DVD study with a book and this one is awesome – since it takes the reader into the Middle East to see and try to experience what those patriarchs may have been experiencing and then relates it back to modern Christians in our mission to spread the Gospel. The DVD comes with a leader’s guide that will guide you in how long it should all take broken down into the separate segments such as watching the DVD, DVD discussion, small group study, faith lesson and closing so the leader will know how to plan their time. The total length of the DVD is 175 minutes split between the five episodes, and range from between 30 to 33 minutes a piece. The Discovery Guide is a definitely a great tool to go along with the study as it includes further study into the Scripture used in the DVD, maps, photos, and also questions to further aid in the study and group discussion as well as personal reflection.

As one watches the DVD they can tell that Mr. Laan is passionate about what he is teaching and it seems from watching and reading what I have he strives to remain solely based on Scripture, not just his opinion, or feel good preaching. There are times his passion almost came across as yelling, which to me was a bit of a turn off but I still enjoyed watching the DVD. As I watched I could almost feel the heat of the dessert, what the Israelites might have felt like as the wandered or what Abraham and Sarah felt in their tent in the heat. This is #13 in the That the World May Know series of studies, there are many more and I hope to get to use them all at some point. The studies don’t have to be done in a group setting, they are also great for your own personal Bible study.
