The DVD is good, and tells the miracles of Jesus very well. The only thing that could be a negative is that for those children watching it who don't go to Sunday School with any regularity, they may not understand the miracle stories and how they go together, especially if they aren't familiar with the Bible Stories. The DVD is well done, however, and for those who understand about the miracle stories, it is a good purchase. It is good for all children, whether familiar with the Bible Stories or not, if there is an adult watching it with them, and can explain some of the areas of transitioning from one miracle to another.
This is a fabulous movie. I've seen many versions of the Gospel story, but this is one of my very favorites. The storytelling, the vocal acting, and the clay animation is all amazing. Most of all, I love the portrayal of Jesus. He is both warm and loving, yet still incredibly commanding, wise, and just. The story follows the Gospel story quite closely, and while there are a few small inaccuracies, and a few small liberties taken for dramatic effect, the overall picture is one that is in perfect accord with the New Testament. I would recommend it to anyone.
I truly enjoyed this film. I have always liked "Claymation" and this is done very well. The voice actors are also well known, and give excellent performances. My children (who are now adults) watched it when it was on TV. I am so thrilled it is on DVD now, and I can share with my future-grandchildren
