Israel’s Mission: Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World by Ray Vander Laan Film Review and Book Review

In Israel’s Mission, Ray Vander Laan explored the history of Israel and our mission to lead the lost sheep and prodigals back to the Lord. The film and book contains five lessons including: Abraham and Sarah and the Three Stanger’s, Israel at Sinai: The First Great Commission, Jesus Renews the Mission: Seeking the Lost, The Lost Son: In a Far Country, and The Seeking Father: The Lost Son Returns. The Bible study also encompasses five days of personal devotional studies to help readers to dig deeper into the message.

I would recommend this awesome Bible study to anyone who enjoys learning about Israel and the message Jesus has for His people. This series would make a great Bible study for your next small group study. Ray Vander Laan did an excellent job at filming and conveying the teachings found only in Israel’s land. I loved how he filmed and showed Israel and it helped me to imagine what it looked like since I haven’t ever personally seen the Holy Land. I loved the topics of reaching out to the lost sheep and the power that is found when Jesus touches their hearts and lives and they are transformed. I also loved that the book shared tons of scriptures and had a great number of questions where readers could ponder and discuss with a small group. If you’re looking for an exciting new Bible study, then read and watch this one!
