For many year Ed Dodson served as a pastor, offering his congregation hope in times of discouragement, pain, and loss. However, when he was diagnosed with ALS and told that he had only two to five years to live, he was not prepared to hear it. Suddenly, the reality of death left him in need of the support and care that he had for so long given to others. Initially he withdrew himself from people and then moved on to begin an uncommon journey toward a new quality of life and purpose.

It's been years since that diagnoses and the beginning of his journey and in this 5-part series Ed reveals his unfolding story. Dobson says "It's not about how long I have left. It's about how I spend the time I do have left.

Featuring clips from the film series Ed's Story, these honest conversations help to remind us of the challenges of lie in the face of death and the perspectives needed that bring peace and hope.

What are God's plans and future purposes for the nations of Israel? Many Christians believe He has none; they believe that the church has replaced Israel in God's agenda for the world. Yet others believe that Israel plays a distinct and vital role which will find its ultimate fulfillment when Christ returns to establish his millennial reign, ruling over the nations from His throne in Jerusalem.

In chapters nine through eleven of the book of Romans, Paul the apostle makes it clear that God's dealings with the Jewish people are by no means finished. How then are we do understand God's intentions for both national Israel and the church? What promises belong exclusively to Israel? What promises has He given to all who call Jesus their Lord and Savior- to people of every nation, tribe, and tongue who in Christ have become "one new man"? And how are we, as believers, to understand and reflect God's love for Jews and Gentiles alike?

Join Mart DeHaan in a thought-provoking interview with Dr. Michael Rydelnik, professor of Jewish studies. From atop a high wall in Jerusalem, this Day of Discovery presentation gives you a sweeping view of the Holy City- and insights into God's heart and plans regarding Israel, His church, and the whole world.

Was Jesus really the miracle worker that the Bible claims? Today many people believe in the historical figure of Jesus as a great teacher, a wise man, and a good moral leader. But was Jesus what He said He was—God in human form? Did He actually preform the miracles recorded in the Bible?

Since most of us have not seen the physical laws of the universe obviously altered, it's hard to believe that anyone could turn water into wine, heal the sick, or raise the dead back to life. But could those miracles recorded in the Bible really have happened? Join Mart DeHaan and Jimmy DeYoung as they investigate historical evidence for the miracles of Jesus.

Along with host Mart De Haan, they'll take you on an amazing journey to see the birthplace of the Christian church in Jerusalem and the very pools where the first 3,000 followers of Christ were baptized.

Jesus has always been controversial. Ever since He walked the shores of Galilee and the streets of Jerusalem, the questions have remained the same: Was He merely Jesus the man, the rabbi-teacher? Could He have been Jesus the Messiah of Israel? Or, most controversial of all, was He Jesus the Son of God?

One group of scholars is trying to clear up the confusion. For more than 10 years, they've studied key events in the life of Jesus. The goal of their historical research has been to resolve the great debate surrounding Jesus. By using accepted methods for verifying historical data, they will present evidence that clarifies the question of who Jesus really was. While some have concluded that the evidence of history cannot support the supernatural Jesus described in the Bible, these scholars provide another conclusion. Watch as they present their evidence, and decide for yourself if the Bible gives an authentic account of who Jesus really was.
