of St. Paul - DVD
This DVD is playable in US and Canada Only
One day you'll meet him face-to-face. Until then, Dr. Paul Maier's remarkable DVD series introduces you to the zealous young Saul. You'll witness his transformation on the road to Damascus; follow his missionary journeys throughout Asia Minor, Greece, and Italy; and relive his arrest and imprisonment.
Aside from Jesus himself, no one has had a greater influence on the founding of Christianity than Paul of Tarsus. Among his many achievements, three are of prime importance: 1) as a powerful, tireless missionary, he spread the faith to Asia Minor, Greece, and Italy; 2) his letters, which form much of the New Testament, present a basic theology for Christianity; and 3) more than anyone else, he brought Gentiles into the early church, not only Jews, thus universalizing the faith.
The accompanying 12-page guide includes a map, summary and discussions questions for each segment, and a bibliography, all of which may be duplicated for participants.
Includes eight 25-30 minute parts presented by Dr. Paul L. Maier:
1) Young Saul: A survey of his roots and education in Jerum, as well as his conversion on the Damascus Road.
2) The New Saul: His desert experience and early ministry in Cilicia.
3) The First Mission Journey: Paul and Barnabas bring the Gospel to Cyprus, Pamphylia, and Galatia.
4) Quarrels and the Second Mission Journey: A great dispute is solved by the Apostolic Council in Jerum, Paul defends the Gospel in Antioch, and then takes Silas on a second mission journey.
5) The Second Mission Journey and Greece: Paul arrives in Philippi, travels to Thessalonica and Athens, and anchors his ministry in Corinth.
6) The Third Mission Journey: Ephesus in Asia Minor is the target of Paul's campaign for Christ.
7) Arrest and Imprisonment: Paul is attacked at the temple in Jerum and is tried before the Roman governors Felix and Festus.
8) The Voyage to Rome: Having appealed to the emperor, Paul sails to Rome but is shipwrecked in Malta. The following spring he arrives in Italy and welcomes his fate in Rome.
