Blockbuster New Bible Study Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life Transports Viewers to the Holy Land

[Exton, PA, February 4, 2020—]

New Bible study journeys with Jesus from Nazareth to Jerusalem and beyond, with outstanding Bible commentary from top Scripture scholars D’Ambrosio, Cavins, and Sri.

Ascension, the faith formation leader, has created a rich experience for both the senses and the soul in Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life. Sweeping panoramas of holy landscapes from Bethlehem to Jerusalem combine with fascinating insights to usher participants into an encounter with the life and Person of Jesus Christ.

Author and presenter Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio explains the vision behind this project: “I’ve spent the past thirty years teaching about the Catholic Faith. During that time, I’ve been surprised at how Catholics fascinated with so many of the unique features of our rich tradition seem to take for granted the very basis of it all, the Person of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Some other Catholic Bible teachers I know have noticed the very same problem. So Jeff Cavins, Dr. Edward Sri, and I decided to collaborate on a ground-breaking study that would focus simply on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ, filmed on location in the land where it all happened.”  

The peerless list of holy sites in the program includes Nazareth (Basilica of the Annunciation), Bethlehem (Church of the Nativity, Shepherds’ Field), the Jordan River, Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, Magdala, the Mount of Beatitudes, Jericho, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Transfiguration, Jerusalem (Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Garden of Gethsemane, Via Dolorosa, Dominus Flevit), Tabgha (Church of the Primacy of St. Peter, Church of the Loaves and Fishes), and more.

“Those who take this journey with us will learn amazing new things about the gospel stories they thought they knew so well . . . about Jesus’ family, his friends, his enemies, and his miracles,” comments Dr. D’Ambrosio. “But even more importantly, they will come to know Jesus himself in a new and astonishing way that will make a surprising difference in their everyday lives.

The study Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life can be completed by individuals, groups, or religion classes. The study set for each participant ($29.95) includes a gorgeous full-color workbook, the “Jesus Timeline Chart,” online access to the ten 30-minute videos, as well as the accompanying book for personal reading. Additional resources exist for group leaders, for those wishing to access the course workbook and videos digitally only, and for those who might wish to purchase the book or chart separately.
