What's In The Bible: DVD Series Review

About What's In The Bible:


In the Beginning” (DVD 1) contains two 25-minute episodes.
Part 1: “What is the Bible?” How is it put together? Kids learn alongside Buck Denver, Sunday School Lady, Brother Louie, and the crew that the Bible tells the story of God and what He’s done for us.
Part 2“Who wrote the Bible?” Next, Buck and friends learn how God inspired people to write the Bible. They also learn how the first part of Genesis sets the stage for the rest of the Bible – and all of history!


Let My People Go” (DVD 2) contains two 25-minute episodes.
Part 1: “Who chose the books in the Bible?” Buck Denver and friends learn how the Old Testament and New Testament books were chosen to be in the Bible. They also dive into the second part of Genesis to learn how God used a family to launch His big rescue plan!
Part 2: “What is salvation?” Learn words like “salvation” and “redemption” as we dive into God’s big rescue plan – how He saved the Israelites from Egypt and how He wants to save us from sin – a tiny word that causes huge trouble.


"Wanderin' in the Desert"(DVD 3) contains two 25-minute episodes.
Part 1: "Don't lie, don't cheat ... don't TRIM YOUR BEARD?" The Old Testament is full of rules, and some of them are kind of, well, weird. Learn why God gave all these rules to Israel and which ones still apply to us today. 
Part 2: "What is a 'Pentateuch'?" Learn about Israel's 40-year "time-out" as we finish the first five books of the Bible! Plus, discover why we can believe what the Bible says - even though we weren't there to see it happen! 


About Phil Vischer:

In 1990, 24-year-old computer-animator Phil Vischer sat down to create a group of characters that could teach Christian values to kids in a delightfully different way. A tomato named Bob and a cucumber named Larry were born. 


VeggieTales would go on to revolutionize Christian filmmaking, selling more than 50 million videos and placing Phil’s faith-filled stories in one in every three American households with young children. Phil continues to pursue innovative new ways to integrate faith and storytelling through his new company, Jellyfish Labs. His projects include Jelly Telly, which provides faith-based daily programming via the internet at JellyTelly.com





My Review:

As I have previously mentioned, my husband and I have loved Veggie Tales for many years, and I am so excited that my girls are now at the age to really enjoy them. Even my two year old walks around the house, singing, "Broccoli, Celery, Veggie Tales". I am so glad that my girls can learn Bible Stories and Character Lessons in a fun and exciting manner using vegetables.

Now the What's In The Bible series takes learning about the Bible to a whole new level. Still using animation, and puppetry, children of all ages will learn history and fun facts about the Bible. Though a lot of the DVD's are a little above my children's age and comprehension levels (they are only 2 and 3.5 yrs), they loved the music and the puppets!

There is so much information on these DVD's that even adults who have read the Bible for years may learn something new. Along with the puppets and music, there is a lot of learning that goes with the What's In The Bible DVD's. Learning that takes you beyond Sunday School and Bible reading.

If you have children in your home that are between seven and nine years that this is the DVD series for you. This is the age recommendation for these DVD's, due to the amount of information presented. The attention span of younger children may not last long enough to actually take away from the "deep" information presented like, "who wrote the Bible" but they will love the puppets and music, as my children did.

There are plans to cover the entire Bible through the What's In The Bible series and I can't wait to see what comes next!

I highly recommend this DVD series and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase all of the What's In The Bible DVD series online here, or from your local Christian bookseller.
