It’s an age-old question: why did God create a world with so much pain and suffering? But what many people do not understand is that God’s original creation was perfect and beautiful. In this clip from By This Name, John Cross explains what it was like for Adam and Eve in the beginning.
“At this time in history, there was a bridge of friendship between God and man. The world was a perfect place in which to live. It was the way God created things to be.”
–By This Name, Page 56
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.
