Homeschool Review Crew - Drive Thru History The Gospels

Review, #hsreviews #drivethruhistory #thegospels, Drive Thru History – “The Gospels”, Drive Thru History, Dave Stotts, The Gospels curriculum, The Gospels small group study, The Gospels homeschool curriculum, The Gospels church study, The Gospels Sunday school study

The Bible is the basis of our homeschool, but combining historical details with Scripture, even this Bible College going (for one semester) mama falls short, so I was happy to get a chance to review Drive Thru History® – “The Gospels” from Drive Thru History®, presented by Dave Stotts.

Get an idea of the quality and content of the DVDs in this trailer for The Gospels:


What is Drive Thru History The Gospels?


The DVDs include 18 episodes that are each 30 minutes or a total of 9 hours of viewing. There is also a study guide that comes in a full-color booklet format as part of the DVD case. The entire program is intended to be used with students who are at least 5th grade through adult level. The hope of the producers is to teach history from a biblical worldview and to get families excited to read the Bible once again.

Your tour guide for the series is Dave Stotts who takes you to the historic sites where these biblical accounts took place as recorded in the Gospels of Matthes, Mark, Luke, and John.
 
The information is based on the historical background of Scriptures found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These four books are known as the Gospels (Good News).

I received a 3 DVD set inside a study guide full-color booklet case.

The case is a work of art including slots for the 3 DVDs with map images underneath and a beautiful full-color 18-part, 100+-page study discussion guide booklet in the center of the case. For each of the 18 episodes on the DVD, the study guide provides a famous quote, about 5 discussion questions, a summary of the episode, amazing photographs and full-color pictures, and "Side Road" notes along with scriptures to read that correspond with each of the 18 episodes on the DVD. 

The 18 Episodes include:
The Historical Landscape
The Announcements
Jesus is Born
Jesus Grows Up
Jesus Starts His Ministry
Jesus Returns to Galilee
Jesus Begins His Miracles
Jesus Teaches with Authority
The Sermon on the Mount
Jesus Travels the Sea of Galilee
Jesus Travels NorthA Final Trip to Jerusalem
Jesus Arrives in Jerusalem
The Last Supper
The Trial of Jesus
The Crucifixion of Jesus
The Resurrection of Jesus
Who is Jesus?

Throughout the DVDs, you see Dave Stotts on location, which was very helpful in understanding the historical elements of the Gospels. We have never been to the Holy Land, so this is probably the closest we will ever get.

How Did We Use It?










I thought it would be fun to pop some popcorn and treat the videos as we would movie night. Of course, we were not going to watch 9 hours all in one sitting. But, no one ever complained about multiple movie moments when there is popcorn involved at our house. We began watching, and I let my older two high school students determine how many we watched in one setting. Turned out that we settled on watching, at the most, two in one timeframe since each 30-minute episode is power packed with information.

What Did We Think?

I love this presentation of the Gospels because it not only comes at it from a Christian, church or Bible College perspective but rather from a historical point of view with a definite biblical worldview throughout. I thought I understood most of what there was to know about the Gospels, but after even the first DVD, I realized how much history I just don't know. My kids felt the same way.

My son is very much into the quality of videos. He has a YouTube channel and makes it his interest to edit all of his uploaded videos to as much perfection as he can. So, he right away noticed that the quality of these DVDs was outstanding. Coming from him, that is a HUGE compliment. He tends to notice any minute sloppy detail of editing.

My teenage daughter commented on how she enjoyed the narrator, tour guide, Dave Stotts. She appreciated how he maintained the perfect level of enthusiasm and lack of corniness with any humor thrown in. She said, "He's not too overboard enthusiastic, but not bored either." Coming from her, this is a HUGE deal.
