When I was originally introduced to What’s In The Bible videos I was immediately impressed. Created by Phil Vischer (the creator of Veggie Tales) each video is full of biblical history and truth. We’ve watched nearly every episode and I’m perfectly comfortable telling you that I’ve been learning along with the kids. What’s In The Bible episodes teach so much more than basic Bible stories. Visher has found a creative and unique way to teach more complex ideas from the Bible to children. The videos are hilarious, I’m often caught laughing along with the kids.
I was thrilled to be asked to review Volume 10 – The Gospels!
While we have enjoyed all of the Old Testament Volumes we have been waiting patiently for the New Testament episodes to be released.
Did you know that Matthew, Mark and Luke are called the Synoptic Gospels?? No?? Neither did I!
This has got to be my favorite video by far. At the end of the video Phil Vischer presents the gospel in a way that children will understand that is what really makes Volume 10 so important!
Reasons why we love What’s In The Bible Videos
1. Entertaining – Full of creative characters like “Sunday School Lady” Clive, Ian and our favorite, Michael. We have come to love the characters in What’s In The Bible. Every time the videos start we know that Michael is going to be up first, buckled in his car seat STILL on his way to grandmas house.
2. Teaches History – I’ve always wanted a deeper understanding of biblical history and these videos offer a great start for children. I’ve been impressed by the concepts that are taught and how well they are explained.
3. Great Variety – I’ve enjoyed the mix of teaching, music and stories on each of the What’s In The Bible Videos. This variety keeps the attention of the children and makes learning even more fun.
4. Educational – We have used What’s In the Bible as supplemental bible curriculum with our homeschooling. The episodes have lead to great discussions and helped our daughter to really understand some foundational bible history.
6. FREE Digital Copy – This is a weird thing to love but I do love it. We are planning our move overseas at the end of the summer and also in the process of downsizing and trying to simplify our belongings. I can easily download the videos to an external hard drive and leave the DVD’s behind when we move. Perfect for families that travel.
