Bible Land Passages Vol. 1


The Bible story and its message of salvation is connected to a real place and a real time in history. George Ernest Wright said, “Geography, history, and religion are so inextricably bound together in it (the Bible) that the religious message cannot be truly understood without attention to the setting and conditions of the revelation” (Westminster Bible Atlas). In documentary style, “Bible Land Passages” brings that message to life by giving context to the stories and lessons of the Bible. With each video, viewers are presented with spiritual truths and the historical, archaeological, and geographical data that will guide them down a passage to stronger faith and deeper devotion for God.

Dove Review

“Bible Land Passages, Vol. 1” is very informative and educational. Today’s Jerusalem, the Red Sea, and other biblically historical sites are featured in this inspiring film. The hosts cite biblical accounts as they show the locations of events in the Bible, such as Jesus’ miracles, the battles of the Israelites; the places where Jesus preached, such as the Sermon on the Mount; and other locations, such as Cana of Galilee and the Garden of Gethsemane. They explore various caves and modern trade routes, too.

The film consists of a prologue and five various parts. It does feature some violent moments depicted in paintings and a brief scene of a portrait that features naturalistic, upper female nudity. Due to the depiction of the violence and brief nudity in paintings, we are awarding the documentary our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus. Go to distant Bible lands and learn their history without leaving the comfort of your home.
