Dove Review

Stephen Pettit (Stevie) takes viewers on a journey through the Holy Land. Through beautiful images, photos of the land, and re-enacted scenes from the Bible, you will enjoy learning about Bible times. Stevie calls himself a modern-day nomad because he’s traveled the world since he was one week old. He digs deep into the Bible, and his love of Christ shines through as he tells us stories and asks the tough questions. This is a very pleasant series and he keeps you engaged along the way. Your family will enjoy the stories he tells as you walk through the Bible together.

In “The Miracle of Moses,” you witness the birth of Moses and his life as a descendant of Abraham. Stories include the basket in the Nile River, the ten plagues, staining the doorways with lamb’s blood, all from Pharaoh’s reign to the Ten Commandments. You will also enjoy the parting of the Red Sea as the Israelites escaped to the land of Canaan. You will experience Moses’ life first hand.

In “Abraham’s Promise” you get a clear look into the life of Abraham when he was in the land of Jordan. While the landscape has changed, Stevie gets as close as possible to what life was like in Bible times. The many promises God made to Abraham are talked about and shown approximately where they happened. God’s promise and Abraham’s faith came true when his son Isaac was born. But Abraham’s faith was tested more than once as you will see.

In “The Throne of David,” Stevie explores where the tabernacle tent was set up. You will witness the beauty of the land of Israel and the constant battle to save Israel that went on for 400 years. When David replaced Saul as king, the life of that young shepherd boy became part of God’s plan. Everything would change for him and Israel. You learn about the Valley of Elah and its surroundings, and the every-day life of the Israelites. This section ends with the all the tribes living in peace. The scenery is breathtaking for sure.

“The Carpenter’s Son” starts when the Israelites arrive in Babylon and they realize they have lost everything. They had to live new lives there, but longed to go home. After 70 long years, they were able to leave and were led by Nehemiah back to Jerusalem. But the city was in shambles and had to be rebuilt! The scenery is fascinating as Stevie takes you through a number of places until King Herod comes on the scene. Stevie scuba dives in Herod Harbor to see all the columns that sank. You see the Judean Desert, meet Mary and Joseph and witness the miraculous birth of Jesus, and end with seeing Neot Kedumim—the only biblical landscape in the world.

In “Messiah’s Promise,” you continue to see how God blessed his people in the land of promise. Learn how God will use Jesus to be a blessing to the world. The gathering of the 12 disciples is played out. Everywhere they went, crowds gathered and miracles happened. Stevie walks the same walk Jesus did and it is stunning. You’ll see the Sea of Galilee, an absolutely beautiful body of water. You’ll see Jesus as he passes through Jerusalem on a donkey and tells of the fulfilling of prophecy. You will experience the Passover, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, and the Ascension into Heaven.

This is a fascinating video that is awarded the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
