Video: Two offerings

The story of Cain and Abel is a familiar one, but do we realise its significance in the big picture of God’s redemption? Just why was Cain’s offering rejected? What made Abel’s offering so special? In this clip from By This Name, we learn about the significant difference between the brothers’ two offerings.

“God was pleased that Abel had faith in him. Because Abel trusted YAHWEH, the LORD accepted Abel as one would accept a friend.”

By This Name has a video component consisting of 66 clips in which author John R. Cross teaches key concepts during the chronological journey through the Bible. These short video clips include visual aids (like the Tabernacle, Passover, altar, etc.) to help bring clarity to the story. They also take the viewers to key sites in Israel, Egypt and Jordan to provide historical and geographical context. We present a selection of these video clips. All of them are included with By This Name, either on DVD or accessible online.
