Watch & Talk: Volume 1
This series premiere includes five short parables to help your family grow in faith and live in the light of God's grace. First, in "The Clock," explore how Jesus leads with grace, but follows it with truth. Then, discuss a new twist on an all-time favorite parable in "Young Prodigal." Next, take a lighthearted look at Easter egg hunts and acting like Jesus in "The Egg" and watch a modern version of the parable where the last are first and the first are last in "The Fair Employer." Finally, in "The Two Debtors" from Luke 7, the one who has the larger debt forgiven loves the forgiver more.
Hosted by GRAMMY Award-winning Christian musician Rebecca St. James, Watch & Talk is an easy and exciting series that engages families in devotions that are fun, open-ended, and Bible-based. The DVD comes with a study guide, and each short film has a specific theme intended to drive insight and powerful change in viewers' lives.
Runtime: 45 min.
Rebecca St. James hosts this fantastic DVD with five modern parables each, illustrating biblical truths. This can be utilized as a powerful teaching tool in a Sunday school or Christian education setting. The family will enjoy these modern presentations of Bible stories as well.
The five lessons featured on the disc are presented as follows: 1. The Clock 2. Young Prodigal 3. The Jesus Egg 4. The Fair Employer 5. The Two Debtors
A few examples of the stories include the lesson of grace which is taught in "The Clock" when a young boy drops a clock which was in his care, and it breaks. A passage from John 1:14-17 is used and host Rebecca St. James encourages a discussion of the parable and scripture passage. in "Young Prodigal" young Troy takes his mother's money and goes to a carnival and spends money on his friends. Soon it rains and Troy finds his bike has been messed up. He has to walk home only to find the door locked and Mom not home. He realizes how he needs his parent. The point is made that the Prodigal Son headed home and was met with grace when his father ran to greet him.
All the rest of the parables are nicely done as the ones mentioned and have the capacity to reach a modern audience, especially a younger audience. We highly recommend this DVD and we joyfully award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. Watch and talk over the stories in this DVD with your family.
