Shiloh 45-1205 Stars Out Of 5Biblical Adventure for the Young at HeartNovember 22, 2016Shiloh 45-120Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One star? ONE STAR?!!! How can anyone rate this as a 1 Star? What is the basis for such a low rating? I reluctantly purchased the Jacob's Ladder - Episodes 1 & 2 Gideon, based on the 1 Star ratings and I am so glad I ignored their them! This was straight up good! I would give it 5 Stars. The previous critiques rated it low because it didnt follow the Bible accurately but relatively speaking I say, OH YES IT DID! As a valedictorian graduate of a Christian school, a member on our church board, and Sunday school teacher, I defy anyone to show me just one movie that accurately follows the Bible right down to the letter; there is no movie that achieves that unobtainable goal.
This Jacobs Ladder series is based on a small group of modern day young teens who travel back in time through a light house and interact with the Biblical characters beginning with Gideon, Naomi, Ruth, Boaz, Samuel, Saul, and ending with King David. This episode of Gideon captivated the adventurous imagination, hearts, and attention of my preteen Sunday school class quite effectively.
So when dealing with the science fiction of time travel, it is already not Biblically accurate; HOWEVER, it conveys the accuracy of the Biblical account of Gideon quite well. While the Book is always better that the movie, very few preteens want to read the Book. So Jacobs Ladder accurately tells the stories of these Biblical characters to a generation that has little interest in the Bible. I HIGHLY recommend this series!
church librarianPAAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5way off base BiblicallyJanuary 20, 2016church librarianPAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I am a pastor's wife, the church librarian and teach 2 different aged Sunday School classes (elementary, and middle school). I was initially excited when I ordered the DVD hoping for a great jumping off point for teaching on Gideon. However, when I viewed the DVD I was very dissatisfied. The presentation was off base and Biblically inaccurate to the point of watering down the main faith points of God's involvement in Gideon's life, and the life of the straying Israelites. Please don't buy this if you care about honoring the Lord's Word. You will only be extremely frustrated.
