This DVD continues the popular "That the World May Know"å? series by Ray Van Der Laan which has been a huge success as it has helped walk people through the bible and helped them to understand the locations and settings where the bible took place.
Lesson One - Capernum: Jesus Binds The Evil One
The first lesson in The Mission of Jesus: Triumph of God's Kingdom in a World in Chaos, titled "Capernum: Jesus Binds The Evil One"å? focuses on Jesus' teaching ministry. Jesus, the hinge point of God's story, left heaven and was born in a dirty stable. Both man and God, he worked many miracles, and his heart for mankind touched many lives. It was in Capernum, however, that large amounts of his teaching took place. In The Mission of Jesus: Triumph of God's Kingdom in a World in Chaos, viewers will travel with Ray Vander Lann to Capernum and the Sea of Galilee. Using stunning imagery of these two locations as they appear today, as well as "flashbacks"å? so to speak, to Jesus' time, viewers will be introduced to Jesus' teaching. They will come to understand the effects of this teaching, as they come to understand the first century context in which it took place. (Lesson one uses the following Scripture references as basis: Acts 10:28-28,Job 9:2-8,Jonah 1:1-6,Mark 1:21-28,Mark 4:35-41,Matthew 4:12-16,Matthew 12:22-29,Matthew 14:25-33,Psalms 107:28-29)
Lesson Two - Decapolis: The Other Side
"Decapolis: The Other Side- Jesus and the Man from the Tombs"å? is the second lesson in The Mission of Jesus: Triumph of God's Kingdom in a World in Chaos. Discover the difference in Jesus' ministry when he leaves the religious loving towns like Capernum, and enters the very different world across the Sea of Galilee-- a world which embraced Caesar. Filmed at the Sea of Galilee and Hippos, the second lesson will once more bring the Bible to life through historical, political, and cultural contexts. (Lesson two uses Acts 10:15-15,Isaiah 65:1-99,Mark 4:35-41,Mark 5:1-20,Matthew 4:12-16,Matthew 8:28-34,Matthew 12:22-29 as references).
Lesson Two - Crucifixion: The Coronation of a King

In the Roman world, if a people group was conquered it meant the gods of Rome were greater than those of the conquered people. Imagine the first century Christians trying to explain how their Savior and God had been tried, sentenced, and killed by an agent of Rome to this audience. Travel throughout Rome and Italy with Ray and some rabbis, as they unpack the Crucifixion through the eyes of a Roman audience. Come to see the Easter story from a new perspective and gain excitement once more.
