We are already fans of Drive Thru History®. In the past years, we have watched The Ancients as we studied the Greeks and the Romans in our homeschool. And we are currently watching American History as we study the 1700s and the battle for Independence.
I even met Dave Stotts this year at the Great Homeschool Convention in Texas.
And like a dorky fangirl, I didn’t think of anything clever to say or ask, such as “Which historic site in the world is your favorite?” or “How difficult is it to get permission to film in some of those ancient sites?” No. I was all like, “We love your videos. They’re really awesome.” I’m sure he’s never heard that before.
So far we have enjoyed seeing the town of Bethlehem. We saw the probable birthplace of the baby Jesus. Our whole family found the palace of Herod and his burial site fascinating.
This video series has provided a visual tour of the places Jesus walked and lived and carried out his ministry. It’s packed with, not only the Jewish culture and locations, but the background of many historic sites, facts on Roman history and rule, and what those towns and cities are like today. From my 6-year-old up to the adults, the tours in and around the different biblical sites have made our knowledge of the New Testament so much more rich!
If you’ve already seen any Drive Thru History® videos, you know that Dave Stotts infuses his sense of humor into each episode. My kids love that. Actually, our whole family loves it. His humor, along with the incredible subject matter, keep everyone glued to the scene for each 30-minute episode.
