What really happened back in the first century, in Jerusalem and around the Sea of Galilee, that changed the shape of world history? Who is this figure that emerges from history to have a profound impact on culture, ethics, politics, and philosophy? Join historian John Dickson on this journey through the life of Jesus. This book, which features a self-contained discussion guide for use with the 6-session Life of Jesus DVD (product # 304653), will help you and your friends dig deeper into what is known about Jesus' life and why it matters.

"John Dickson has done a marvelous job of presenting the story of Jesus, and the full meaning of that story, in a way that is both deeply faithful to the biblical sources and refreshingly relevant to tomorrow's world and church. I strongly recommend this study to anyone who wants to re-examine the deep historical roots of Christian faith and to find them as life-giving as they ever were."

Life of Jesus DVD
5 stars By JT, Jan 05 2015
It is with the Life of Jesus documentary that I am reminded of how the Gospels in the New Testament are entirely set apart from all other religious texts.

In this wonderful six-session journey done on location in Israel, John Dickson explores the world of the historical Jesus of Nazareth. Dickson's presentation is a reminder that there are no rivals to biblical scholarship. The case for Jesus has never been stronger than it is today.

Life of Jesus explores what is known about the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in the context of first-century Palestine. "Without a doubt, the best case for Christianity is the life of Jesus."

Great to watch
5 stars By S J, Dec 27 2013
I liked these short films, and I'm glad I bought them. They are visually well-crafted, and especially interesting if you haven't done the Grand Tour around the area where Jesus lived here on earth. Each film left me with new impressions on who this Jesus guy really was. I suppose I thought I knew enough about him already... but now I'm not so sure.
