Ever wondered how to articulate the concept of God being everlasting, without a beginning or an end? This is a hard-to-grasp concept for our finite minds, and yet an important foundational truth if we are to understand the Bible’s message. Watch how in By This Name, John Cross uses the cosmos to illustrate eternity.
“Yes, the thought of eternity is difficult to grasp, but so is the vastness of our universe. Both are mind-boggling, yet both are real. And when it comes to the eternality of the LORD God, the Bible speaks emphatically on this point. It says he is eternal, and his ‘forever existence’ is such an inherent part of his nature that it is used as one of his names. ‘The name of the LORD, the everlasting God’ (Genesis 21:33 KJV).”

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.
