The True Easter Story


The Promise Kept.

Piercing through layers of tradition that have built up around Christ's resurrection, this powerful, brand new 45-minute Faith Lessons video takes us into ancient Jewish times and culture to view afresh the birthday of the Christian faith. Drawing on Ray Vander Laan's rich understanding of Israel's history and religion and unfolded in his passionate and practical manner, here is the carefully researched, factual account. The immediacy is gripping, the truth, inspiring.

From the ignominy of the cross to the glory of the risen Lord, The True Easter Story sheds new light on the resurrection of the King of Kings — deepening our appreciation of God's love for us and his provision for a Messiah.

Travel with Ray VanderLaan to the land of Israel and discover fascinating truths about the events surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus. See 2,000-year-old tombs, much like the one that so temporarily held Jesus. Experience a dramatic plunge into the vibrant history and culture of Israel.

The True Easter Story is not a superficial Holy Land travelogue. It's a total cultural immersion directed by teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan. Using his knowledge of ancient Jewish holidays and little-known customs, Vander Laan probes the true depth of the Easter story as it begins 2,000 years earlier with a simple promise between a man called Abraham and Almighty God.

God's keeping of that promise reveals a beautifully intricate masterpiece of love for humankind, love fully realized centuries later in Jesus' resurrection and his gift of eternal life. After viewing this DVD, the celebration of Easter will forever be a time of deeper, richer joy for you and your family.

We really enjoyed this through Focus on the Family. It put you right there where everything happened and gave a lot of information that is not often covered in such detail. Very excellent, in my opinion.
