UNIT 2: In this unit, Rev. Dr. John Tweedie takes you through the Holy Land in the footsteps of Jesus and His first followers. Join him as he explores how God's promise to Abraham was fulfilled, in one sense, through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, events which had a profound impact on one of Christianity's most determined opponents, Saul of Tarsus. Discover how Jesus and Saul (the Apostle Paul) became instrumental in rekindling the flame of individual hope amid the pagan darkness of Roman rule over Israel. Learn how the concept of a "Messiah" or "Christ" figure developed in the ancient world and how Salvation, as Christians understand it today, is yet another gift that came to the world through the Jewish people.
