joycenew yorkAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5a great teaching toolMay 3, 2013joycenew yorkAge: 55-65Gender: femaleFirst let me say that no teaching tool stands alone. There is a fictional aspect to this series as the children go back in time. It does require some explanation to children, as well as the fact that the actors play different roles in different stories. Even our youngest children have been able to understand those aspects. That being said, the bible stories are biblically accurate. In fact, I have become aware of details that I never noticed in the biblical text. The acting is engaging,and our Kids club group has enjoyed this series for many years. I wish there were sequels.
church librarianPAAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5extremely disappointedMarch 5, 2012church librarianPAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I wanted to use this series to supplement our Summer time Sunday School program. I was very disappointed because the adult who enables the kids to go back in to Biblical times inserts himself into the story as an angel giving a message. He was flippant and not a Godly emissary in his presentation. Not to mention the fact that he is not an angel! nor THE angel that is supposed to be giving the message. I believe it was the story of Gideon. Additionally, the "scene" and clothing appeared to be set in Medieval times rather than Biblical. It was all just a little too strange, and not true to the Word. I was able to return the series with some argument to CBD. Understandably I had opened the series. So if you care about showing this for a Sunday School class, or in any teaching arena, be forewarned that it will be inaccurate.

We are using it for our kids in a home Bible study group. They hold the kids attention and are great for a wide age range. They help the kids think about how God works in their own lives and makes the Bible come to life.
csenseOhioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Ten year old boy wants sequelsJanuary 30, 2011csenseOhioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I agree with all of the other reviews: well-acted and narrated, engaging story format, quite biblically accurate outside of the fictional aspect of the modern youth traveling through time to witness and interact with historical characters and events. From an adult perspective, the Welsh setting and somewhat low-budget costumes can be a bit distracting at first. Also, the same actors appear in different episodes as different characters. This takes a bit of adjusting to, but my ten year old doesn't seem to mind. He gets really into the story, and empathizes with the characters to such a degree that it is not uncommon for him to keep asking questions about the story throughout the day, such as "is that really what the Bible says," or,"Why would Saul do that to David when he said he was sorry the last time." The Jacob's Ladder series has, more than anything he has watched before (we watch all kinds of children's and adult Bible videos) made the people in the Bible very real to him, which, along with the positive aspects already stated, makes it easy to give this five stars.
