Here's an Overview of Each Last Days of Jesus Video Session:

Session 1: From Warrior to Servant: Jesus the Messiah

  • Explore Caesarea Philippi, the location of the Gates of Hades, where Jesus and his disciples stood. Dive into greater depths of who Jesus really is: the Son of God, the Christ, and the Messiah. Dr. Matt Williams teaches about the shocking revelation of Jesus' identity to his disciples: not a military conqueror overthrowing Rome, but a suffering servant triumphing over evil and death. What is it to deny yourself? What did Jesus mean when he told Peter, "Get behind me, Satan?" Unpack the incredible mysteries & prophecies in Matthew 16 using the Old Testament Scriptures and Jewish cultural context.

Session 2: A Glimpse of Glory: The Transfiguration

  • Get a glimpse of Nazareth, Jesus' hometown as you dive into the story of the Transfiguration. From the Colorado Rockies, Dr. Susan Hecht guides you through this historic and pivotal teaching of the Transfiguration in Matthew 17, where the Old and New Testament collide. Get an in-depth overview of Jesus' meeting with Elijah and Moses, what his transfiguration means for our transformation, the disciples' reactions, and how to apply this lesson to our lives.

Session 3: The Rejected King: The Triumphal Entry

  • Travel along the Mount of Olives where Jesus frequently traveled and where he entered Jerusalem on a donkey to publicly proclaim his identity as the Messiah. Dr. Mark Strauss walks you through the three events that make up the Triumphal Entry: Jesus' entrance on Palm Sunday, the cleansing of the temple, and the cursing of the fig tree. Dr. Strauss covers the historical and cultural background of Passover, Old Testament prophecies, Jewish customs of temple sacrifice, and much more! Plus, get practical applications to bring the Lord of Lords into your day-to-day living and transform the world around you!

Learn to apply the 3 practical principles Jesus displays in this lesson: selfless love, serving one another, and forgiveness!

Session 5: The Ultimate Victory: The Trial and Death of Jesus

  • Discover the Garden of Gethsemane, filled with olive trees thousands of years old, where Jesus came to hide and was arrested by the Romans after being betrayed by Judas. Join Dr. Darrell Bock in Dallas, Texas, as he walks through the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. What was the claim Jesus made that pressed Pilate to convict him? Dr. Bock puts Jesus' confession, his death, and the reaction of the public in Jewish, Roman, and modern day contexts to paint a powerful picture of God's plan for salvation.

Session 6: The Death of Death: The Resurrection of Jesus

  • Take a walk by the Garden Tomb, one of the few likely places where Jesus rose from the dead to proclaim his triumph over evil. Discover the earth-shattering power of the resurrection of Jesus Dr. Gary Burge at Forest Home Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois, as he vividly reconstructs the scene using the Scriptures, apologetics, and first century Jewish culture.

on 1/25/2017 Helpful as a Bridge
Somehow or other, I feel that this series would be ideal for those who know something about the Bible but who perhaps might need a little encouragement to get into it in greater depth. I do like the format: there is a walk through some area of the Holy Land related to the topic of the video given by Ms. Feinberg, after which there is a dynamic reading of pertinent Scripture. After that, one of the very well-theologians draws an analogy to the theme from some modern-day site, usually in North America, which sheds light on the specific message which follows. It is a good balance, and this might be suitable for an introductory home study; for a more casual meeting of the church that might lend itself to further discussion; for family groups; for high school and college groups or even for outreach gatherings. This series could easily prove useful in outreach to the traditionally religious during the pre-Easter season when mention of the Passion is considered a "legitimate" topic.
on 1/24/2017 Informative and interesting
This 6-session DVD Bible study starts with 2-3 minutes of video on location in Israel (Ceasarea Philippi, Mount of Olives, Garden Tomb, etc.) with Margaret Feinberg followed by audio of the study text from Matthew using the NIV Audio Bible. Then a New Testament scholar provides 17 minutes of commentary on the passage and 6-10 minutes of application. They walk you through the text while explaining first century context and cultural background information. For example, Session 1 covers "Who do people say that I am?" and explained why people thought Jesus might be those people and what they expected of the Messiah. Dr. Williams also explained some phrases like "keys of the kingdom of heaven" and underlying word plays. Each session features a different speaker. The three sessions I viewed were well-done and informative. I'd recommend this series for small group Bible study. (My review is based off of a free viewing of 3 video sessions as provided by the publisher.)
on 1/13/2017 Solid Biblical Teaching in an Inviting Format
I'm happy to recommend this resource. It sets quality biblical teaching in an inviting setting. The talks are well-organized and rooted in the biblical text. This would work well in a group Bible study setting; but will also be appreciated by individuals.
on 1/9/2017 For believers at any stage of life
This is an articulate and in-depth Bible study that brings Scripture to life. The imagery displayed in the videos and the audible reading of Scripture enables the listener to place themselves in the scenario. Also, the presentation of differing interpretations encourages interaction with the application of Truth to the life of the Church. I greatly appreciate the explanation of the cultural and historical context to denote the tension between the Messiah of Jewish expectation and the suffering Messiah; it debunks false understandings of who Jesus is. Whether you've grown up in Church or are new believer, I definitely recommend this study. For those with an intellectual appetite, the use of Greek words creates a greater desire to be immersed in study of the text. For those who love the simplicity of the Gospel, you cannot help but be in awe of the love communicated in the last days of Jesus. For all Christians, a genuine intrigue in the Word of God in both the Old and New Testament.
on 1/9/2017 great for conversations
this study is great for small groups. lots of applicable information. i love the visual backgrounds to the studies.
