Exploring Biblical Jordan


Journey with us in this compelling video to lands in which Bible events come to life. Follow the adventures of Lot, as he fled from Sodom and was sheltered in a cave; Jacob, as he wrestled with God by the river Jabbock; and Moses, as he led the great Exodus northwards from Aqaba. There’s Mount Hor, where Aaron died and was buried; the plains of Moab, where Moses gave his final instructions and blessing; Beth Peor, where he pleaded to be allowed to enter the Promised Land. These places, and much more, make this a unique and gripping program.

Dove Review

It is easy for common Bible stories to become like fairy tales in the mind. Our time and culture is quite different from when Abraham, Jacob, and Moses lived. Imagining the lives they led and the adventures God led them on is difficult, and not everyone is able to travel to the places where Abraham sojourned and Jesus ministered. Thankfully, “Journey of a Lifetime: Exploring Biblical Jordan” brings the land of Jordan to your television and these common Bible stories to life!

Your personal tour guide, David Nunn, leads you from the luscious landscape of Lot’s homestead near Sodom to Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John baptized Jesus. You will also see the desert where the Israelites traveled while waiting for God to lead them to the Promised Land. Nunn tells the story of Moses on Mount Nebo where he overlooked the Promised Land before his death. Nunn’s narration of biblical history as he walks the paths of our holy patriarchs is intriguing and enlightening!

“Journey of a Lifetime: Exploring Biblical Jordan” is more than an informative documentary on biblical history; it is a useful tool for students to use while studying Scripture. Nunn concludes by reiterating the good news of Jesus Christ, who, as he explains, all of Scripture points to as the Redeemer of mankind. The Dove Foundation recommends “Journey of a Lifetime: Exploring Biblical Jordan” for its educational content and captivating presentation, awarding it the “Faith-Friendly” Seal of approval for all ages. This film is definitely more riveting than the flannel board Bible stories you grew up with in Sunday school!
