What’s The Word? Series

In our fast-paced culture, we often rush through our Bible. Too often we emphasize quantity – how much of the Bible we’ve read – instead of focusing on the quality of our time in God’s Word. But the Bible is not a mass-produced art print to be casually hung on a wall; it’s an original masterpiece to be savored and studied close-up. It contains the very words of God!   In each lesson, filmed on location, DeJong illuminates the historical, geographical, and cultural context of the sacred Scriptures. Pause for a moment to examine some of God’s words in detail and you will no doubt develop a deeper appreciation of the masterpiece of the Text and also for its Author.

The High King of Heaven did not arrive to pomp and circumstance.
