In this in-depth series, author Jill Shannon shares about the biblical history, covenants, and prophetic destiny of Israel. She presents the current political and military realities, issues concerning the West Bank, and the future events that will unfold before our eyes.
This is an excerpt from lesson 1 entitled "God's Appointed Times and Seasons," which is part of a 12 lesson - 4 DVD set, "Israel's Prophetic Destiny: If I Forget Jerusalem" with Jill Shannon.
I filmed teacher Jill Shannon in High Definition 1080/24P with a Canon 5D mkII and prime Canon and Nikon lenses on a shoestring budget.
The controversy over Israel's territorial rights to secure borders seems to be on the front pages of world media constantly right now. Why is the world so preoccupied with the affairs of this small and prosperous state? Many people have little knowledge of the historical significance of what the Jewish people have contributed to the world over the past several thousand years. Many major health and moral precepts, scientific advancements, and technological breakthroughs that we take for granted, are the result of the pioneering spirit of the Jewish people. Is Israel important and relevant to Christians today? Why is Israel so maligned in the news media and within the United Nations? Does the Bible give readers any prophetic insight into events that may transpire soon in the Middle East? These are some questions that this series attempts to address.
I am a very small scale production company, not really a company, actually I'm one person, producer/director/editor/camera person of this educational video set about the state of Israel and her people's history.
