Publisher's Description

Gone are the days of the flannelgraph. Well, we hope so anyway! Students today are looking to connect with the teachings of Jesus, but often the stories they hear or read about Jesus sound like just that---stories. Using thought-provoking short films from 36 Parables, and the free downloadable discussion guides, you can help your students truly experience the parables of Jesus. Use these short films as an introduction to a message, an illustration, or a discussion starter. However you choose to use 36 Parables, your students will discover the truth inside each story and God's truth will be revealed to them in a new light. This DVD offers three compelling videos that put Jesus' parables into a modern day scenario, giving students something to think about and opening up opportunities for dialogue. The parables on 36 Parables: Purple include: * 'Out of Reach' portrays a young girl trying to persuade her father to let her play with his antique fire truck. Based on the Parable of the Friend at Midnight (Luke 11:5-8); approx. 4 min. * 'The Car Lot' introduces a car salesman who is forced to think creatively in order to obtain a new job.
