Unlike any other Bible series to date, the Center for Holy Lands Studies (CHLS) created Foundations: Discipleship Lessons of the New Testament Church, a full digital download Bible study using the ancient sites of Turkey. By focusing on the history of the New Testament, its geographic landscape, the use of language in the biblical text, and cultural truths, CHLS has produced an incredible devotional resource for everyone.
“The Center d’études des Terres Saintes (CHLS) has been a ministry within the Assemblies of God for more than 10 years”, declares Pastor Choco De Jesus, general treasurer of the GA. “Their team has done an exceptional job in sharing and teaching the truths of God to over 5,000 people in Bible countries – and they continue to do so. Now they are bringing the Bible Lands home to you!
Amy Flattery, Director of CHLS, says, “Our vision is that all believers will understand the Bible and grow in their faith and love for God. Our mission is to equip believers to understand and apply the Bible through its culture, history, land and spirit. Our strategy is to teach believers through Bible-focused study tours, educational and devotional resources, and through partnerships with universities and academic institutions. CHLS wants you to experience God through the lands of the Bible, whether you are with us in the country or sitting at home on your couch.
“This new devotional and educational resource, Foundations, goes back 2,000 years in the world of the New Testament Church, ”says Jeremy Stein, content development and teaching strategist for CHLS. Their words, actions, and ancient sites serve as a road map to better understand the foundations of our faith and how we can grow through devotion and discipleship.
In this special 12-part series, due out in August, participants will explore the New Testament world, encounter unwavering faith, and grow through devotion and discipleship. Visually, they will visit sites like Colossi, Didyma, Ephesus, Laodicea, Miletus, Pergamum, Philadelphia, Sardis, Smyrna, and Thyatira – learning from the founders of the New Testament Church.
There are three purchasing options: one for pastors and leaders, another for individuals and small groups, and a third for purchasing content on individual sites. Those who choose to purchase the series will also receive 13 additional devotional videos filmed in Turkey.
