This DVD was an awe-inspiring, uninterrupted, presentation of Jesus’ ministry along the shores of LakeGalilee and the villages near Nazareth. I watched this with my two sons (25 months and 16 months). My dad also joined us and this video earned his rave reviews as well (quite an accomplishment since he is a very tough critic and also quite a Biblical scholar.) Together we had the opportunity to see Jesus call the disciples, teach the masses, perform miracles, and at the conclusion, confirm that Judas would betray Him.
I have to admit that aside from the fact that the characters have some funny looking noses, the video was incredibly rich in visual effects. The water actually appeared to move and the nighttime skies and backgrounds were rich and visually exciting.
Both my dad and I agreed that while some liberties were taken in advancing the story, there were none that would contradict the Bible. I also appreciated some of the humor that was included and how real Jesus was. He was truly presented as a friend and brother.
I recommend this video wholeheartedly! You and your children will not be disappointed.
