Have you heard of What’s in the Bible?
In case you haven’t, What’s in the Bible, created by Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer, is a DVD series that walks kids and families through the entire Bible. And through the entire Bible it goes!
With DVDs for use at home, an entire curriculum to use in church, music CDs, coloring pages, and more, What’s in the Bible is thorough, in-depth, informative, and fun!
Up until now, only the Old Testament volumes had been released, but Volume 10: Jesus is the Good News is finally here!
The wonderful people over at What’s in the Bible recently sent me a brand-new copy of volume 10 to watch with my family and review, so here goes!
Like all of the other volumes in the What’s in the Bible series, volume 10 is entertaining and funny while covering a ton of information. Phil Vischer and his team have a gift for simplifying some really complicated concepts so that even a child can understand. The tunes are catchy, and the characters are memorable.
I appreciated how Volume 10: Jesus is the Good News started out with a great review and overview of the Old Testament, and we are reminded of how God has woven the Old and New Testaments together, “like two partial pictures. We lay one on top of the other to see the full picture” (paraphrased).
Whether or not you’ve seen volumes 1-9, the review is interesting and helpful. A thorough explanation of the time between the Testaments is also included, giving excellent background and clarifying information (like who are the Pharisees and Saducees anyway?) as we set out to read the New Testament.
Great visuals are used when concepts are explained, and the characters keep the mood light. Even though the DVD is content heavy, with much for even me as an adult to learn, Phil Vischer does a great job of bringing the concepts home and helping us apply the truths to our hearts.
Of course, the techie in me loves that a free digital copy is included with every DVD. We scratch far too many DVDs in this family!
Bottom line? I loved it.
But honestly? My kids didn’t.
I’ve heard from different families that their kids, who are the same age as mine, really like these DVDs, but for whatever reason, my kids just don’t have the attention span just yet. I’m holding out hope, though, and hanging on to these DVDs. They will be perfect when my kids are just a wee bit older.
