“Drive Thru History: The Gospels” is an exciting series which presents the gospels via the narration of Dave Stotts and through video of his travels in the Holy Land. He drives a lot in his jeep (which he calls Steve McQueen) and Stotts points out various locations and shares background and stories. He is very knowledgeable. This is a mammoth series, featuring 18 chapters on three discs.
Some of the highlights feature beautiful scenery, insightful information, and incredible drawings, paintings, and artwork which portrays the various stories including the crucifixion of Jesus. The land of Israel and its history is featured, which moves on to the birth of Jesus, the ministry of Jesus, His miracles and teachings, including the Sermon on the Mount, His journey on the Sea of Galilee, His travels north, and the final trip to Jerusalem. It climaxes with the Last Supper, the trial of Jesus, the crucifixion, resurrection and an epilogue focusing on Jesus in a biographical manner.
There is a word of caution at the beginning, explaining the violence of the crucifixion. While these scenes do feature some blood, none are gratuitous.

Anyone who views this outstanding series will intimately know Christ better than before.
