The third in the Jesus & You series, a four session, DVD-based course about God's kingdom.
Part of the Jesus and You series.
Jesus is famous for being humble and gentle. He was poor. He never went more than 200 miles from his birthplace. And he died like a criminal.
But amazingly he taught his followers that he is the king sent by God. Jesus told many stories to teach about God’s kingdom. They tell us what kind of king Jesus is and why we need to join God’s kingdom.
In just four sessions, you can hear seven of these stories of Jesus. Find out why our world is full of trouble, how the message of Jesus can completely change your life, and what’s the greatest treasure in the universe!
Using a modern, easy-to-understand translation of the Bible, this straightforward guide and the accompanying DVD will help you understand who Jesus is, why he came, and the difference he can make for people today.

Bought this on spec to use in our summer bible study group. It worked really well with our men's group and also with one of our cross cultural ladies' groups.
The material is uncomplicated but very powerful. The study sheets are workable and lead the group into the detail of the story and the videos work really well to highlight the issues. Surprisingly found that the studies stayed with me and influenced my thinking. These studies are a great way of getting groups who have just started on their way with leaning about Jesus to get into important details. People who have been walking with Jesus for a long time will also be challenged to re-examine what Jesus says about a lot of our every day lifestyle choices.
We are using "The King and I" with International students studying art at UCA Farnham , and they are really loving the material. We have had some of the best discussions on Christian truth as we have used the material. The explanations from Pete and Lizzie are first-class, clear and punchy. And the testimonies root the truth in personal experience.
Just started running my second course using the Jesus and you material and have found both the "Tales of the unexpected" and "The King and I" to be really good for the groups they are aimed at, folk with little or no previous Bible knowledge. The video's are engaging however don't expect the same high production values as the CE video but they work well with the material.
I'm so pleased that material like this is being produced and I hope that more are in the pipeline.
