Faith Lessons Vol. 13 – Israel’s Mission: Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World




Discover the fascinating history, geography, and culture behind the events and characters of the Bible. Host Ray Vander Laan goes on-site to reveal the Bible’s intriguing historical context and its significance to modern believers, illuminating life-changing “faith lessons.” Approximately 5-7, 20-minute segments per set.

As they stood at the foot of Mount Sinai, the Israelites not only agreed to partner with God by worshipping Him as king, they also took on a mission: become a kingdom of priests in a prodigal world. This had been God’s plan for His people from the time He called Abraham out of Ur, a mission that would forever characterize Abraham’s descendants and one which Jesus would renew with His own ministry. Follow the rabbi through Israel and Jordan, scaling mountains in the Sinai and exploring the ancient cities of the Decapolis as you unpack what it means to be a kingdom of priests today.
