Ellen5 Stars Out Of 5Vital Series Full of Excellent Questions and AnswersNovember 28, 2014EllenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This video give an overview of the last three historical books. It also asks and answers some valuable questions, like these:
If the name "Nebuchadnezzar" is spelled differently in different books of the Bible, then how can we say the Bible is true and trustworthy?
The book of Isaiah has a prophecy that a future king named Cyrus would free the exiled Hebrews. That happened. But how do we know that the prophecy came first?
Adults might be interested that the Jewish historian Josephus gives insight into the second question. Children barely able to walk can enjoy the colors and happy faces and delightful songs. This is a series for anyone, and all ages, interested in learning more about the world's best book, the Bible.
Like others in this 13-volume DVD series, there are two episodes, 25 minutes each.
Episode 1 is about the books of Ezra, and the return of the exiled Hebrews to Jerusalem and rebuilding the Temple, and Nehemiah.
The Bentley Brothers (dressed in colored tuxedos) sing their song about Nehemiahs building the "wall yall," while Popsicle puppets illustrate it. Brilliant and good fun.
It also tells about the reading of the Law in Nehemiah.
Episode 2 is about Brave Queen Esther of Persia. We hear about three of King Xerxess (her husband's) bad habits known from history, as well as the origin of the Jewish holiday Purim and its name. Popsicle puppets are inventively used to tell her story. Everyone should see this, it's terrific.
Pete, the Pirate puppet, sings from his rocket, telling the wicked Haman that "In the end youre gonna die the way you planned for Mordecai."
"So what have we learned?" British puppet Ian asks. Sunday School Lady and other puppets summarize the lessons from all the historical books.
Another question: God knew the Israelites were going to fail, so why did God let them try? The puppets with Phil Vischer have good discussion about this. Illuminating.
At the end, a team of puppets take to their animated canoes to sum up the twelve historical books in song.
"Show outtakes," "Michaels Deleted Scene" and "Contest Winner Videos" of kids telling why they like this series, are Bonus Features.
This series doesn't just tell stories using puppets and singing and animation to make the Bible understandable, interesting, and fun, but it also trains children and others to approach the Bible with faith that questions may be asked and the answers can be more valuable and interesting than you might think.
Its questions help make this series so vital, its not just about learning stories, but also about thinking and applying what we learn to our own lives and not avoiding hard lessons and ideas along the way.
TresOfRealityMinnesota4 Stars Out Of 5Funny and informativeFebruary 18, 2013TresOfRealityMinnesotaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This disc covered some pretty tricky information with simplicity and entertainment. We enjoyed the music and humor.
Our only complaint about this episode is that now both of the 'girl' stories have been done by our least favorite skit venue: Chester Wigget's popsicle stick theater. We did like how the king was not romantisized or dumbed down and sweetened up.
Babette Stevens5 Stars Out Of 5Collect them all!October 5, 2012Babette StevensThis DVD series is tremendous, I purchased this extra one to give as a prize to one of my Sunday school students. I am currently teaching the Church version curriculum. The big picture of connecting the Bible as one whole story is the best way to give children the tools and overview to remain firm in their faith.
