In this third production of Drive Thru History®, “The Holy Land,” your host Dave Stotts takes you on a journey through the lands of the Bible unlike any other he has trekked—with his classic humor trailing close behind him, of course. And a new set of wheels.
You and Dave will begin your adventure by taking a step between the pages of the Old Testament—back in time, before the existence of Israel—to walk alongside the Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You’ll then slip into the shadows of the pyramids of Egypt, to behold the extraordinary miracles of Exodus. You’ll cross the Jordan River into the Promised Land, walk the shores of the Dead Sea, witness the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, hike the barren desert to the peak of Masada, witness the epic battle between David and Goliath in the Valley of Elah, wander the ruins of Jericho, and find yourself face-to-face with the Dead Sea Scrolls.
You and Dave will then take a turn into the New Testament, on a mission to follow the footsteps of Christ. You’ll begin by watching the Prophesies of the Messiah unfold, and witness the Star of Bethlehem root itself in the night sky as a magnificent announcement of the birth of Jesus. As you journey from destination to destination—from Nazareth, to the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Mount Moriah, the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, the City of David, the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, to name just a few—you’ll witness the life of Christ, his crucifixion, and finally his resurrection.
