Summary:
Jonas, a street urchin, is desperate for bread. When he finds some, knife-wielding thugs try to steal it but he temporarily escapes them. An old beggar then asks Jonas to share his bread with a “hungry soul.” Jonas responds by saying “There’s not enough.” The street thugs show up again and take some of Jonas’ bread from him. Jonas’ is despondent and frustrated with his hunger.

Meanwhile, the local town bakers stay up all night to make fresh bread for the next day’s market. In the morning, Jonas asks for a loaf of bread from one of the bread merchants but is turned away. He feigns illness and the merchant willingly gives him some bread. Then an old woman announces that Jesus, the miracle worker, is nearby. While skeptical, Jonas decides to see this man himself.

Jesus, Peter, and the rest of the disciples are on a boat and see the masses on the shore. Peter asks whether they should set back out to sea but Jesus instructs him to go to them. On shore, Jesus begins healing the sick who have come to see Him.

As the day will soon be ending, Peter and the disciples ask Jesus if He would like to send the people away to get food and shelter. Jesus instructs them to feed the people. They are overwhelmed given that there are over 5,000 people. Jesus tells them to go and see how much food there is among the people. Then, Jonas offers up his five barley loaves and two fish. Jesus blesses the food. The disciples are amazed and fill their baskets to begin feeding the people and discover they have much left over. Jesus retreats in solitude to pray.

As night descends, the disciples get on their boat and are soon caught up in a terrible storm. Frightened, they are amazed to see Jesus walking on water toward them and He implores them to “be not afraid.” When they arrive back on land, the people ask for more bread at which time Jesus explains that He is the bread of life.”

Jonas is convinced that the bread Jesus offers will satisfy one’s hunger forever. This delightful story of the feeding of the 5,000 challenges us to consider afresh the one who is the Bread of Life.

Story Synopsis:
Bread from Heaven is an account of how Jesus has compassion for the multitudes that have come to hear Him minister.

The story begins with a young street urchin named Jonas who is begging for each bit of food he can get. After an incident of trickery, he takes bread from the local bakers, Zeke and Jethro. He refuses to share his bread with an old man who is weak and clearly in need of nourishment. Later Jonas finds himself listening to the words of Jesus on the mountain. He is inspired by His message.

When Jesus asks for food to feed the people, Jonas unselfishly offers the five loaves and two fishes. After Jesus prays over the food, the disciples feed the people. Zeke and Jethro are amazed at the miracle of feeding the masses and come up with a plan to make Jesus king. They want Jesus to perform miracles so they will no longer have to work. When Jesus tells them He is the Bread of Life, the bakers think He is joking and return to their ovens.

Summary:
The story of John the Baptist begins as Elizabeth, a virtuous older woman who longs for a child, delights in watching a young boy playing outside her window. Her husband Zacharias, chosen to offer incense to God at the temple, is visited there by the Angel Gabriel who tells him that his wife is to bear a son.  Because of his disbelief, Zacharias suddenly falls deaf and mute, unable to tell his family and neighbors what happened to him.

When Elizabeth’s son is born, family members ask his name and she answers John.  They refuse to accept this since none among them share it. The family then asks Zacharias his son’s name.  He writes John on a tablet and his hearing and speech are restored.  He shares with them prophecy of the role his son is to play.

John grows up to be strong in both body and spirit, living a humble life on the banks of the River Jordan. He preaches of the imminent coming of a savior, and baptizes people in the river in the name of the messiah, preparing the way for Jesus.

All of this proves disturbing to the Pharisees and their leader, Caiaphas, who tries to convince King  Herod to capture John. The King is reluctant but not his wife, Herodias.

Even when Pharisee spies question John as he preaches of the repentance, he does not temper his word, calling Herod a sinner for taking his brother’s wife. This accusation drives Herodias to demand John’s capture and death.  Before this happens, Jesus  approaches the place where John is preaching.  John cries out, recognizing the savior about whom he has been preaching. Jesus asks John to Baptize him and as he does, the heavens open and the Holy Spirit appears in the form of a dove. Even though his life is in danger from Herodias and Herod, John refuses to flee, declaring that his work is done.

Background:
John the Baptist  baptized people to change their lives- that they be born anew – in preparation for the coming of a savior to earth. His baptism of the savior , Jesus  culminated his mission.

It begins with the blessing of John's birth to his aging parents, Zacharias and Elisabeth. Dedicating his life to preparing the way for Jesus Christ, John the Baptist faces both political and spiritual adversity. Despite difficulties, he grows in strength and integrity as he stands against hardships in order to preach the coming of the Lord. At the end of this 30-minute Bible video, the ancient prophesy is fulfilled, and John baptizes Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God!

    Summary:
    The story begins in 13 A.D. with Joseph, Mary, and Jesus journeying to Jerusalem for Passover. While there, they go to the market to gather supplies. Then, they wait outside the Temple to bring a sacrificial lamb to one of the Temple elders.

    Joseph and Jesus take the lamb to the Temple altar where they find a Rabbi discussing the fate of a poor man who stole. Since the poor man cannot repay for what he has stolen, the Rabbi says the law states that he must be sold into slavery. The young boy, Jesus, questions how it is right to sentence a man to slavery when they are celebrating the Passover, which is about the Jewish people being freed from slavery.

    As the Passover celebration ends, Mary and Joseph leave Jerusalem only to discover that Jesus is missing. They return to the city to find him counseling the elders at the Temple – amazing both the elders and His parents. Jesus returns home with his family where he grows strong with spirit and is filled with wisdom; the grace of God is upon Him.

    Jesus, the man, becomes a carpenter like his earthly father, Joseph. The story then shows us the son of God fulfilling God’s will through baptism and then fasting 40 days in the wilderness. While there, Satan tempts him three times. Jesus remains strong in spirit and rebukes the devil each time. God finds favor with His son and sends angels to minister to Jesus.

    Jesus then returns in the power of the spirit into Galilee and there went out a fame of him through the entire region round about.

    The Righteous Judge

    The Righteous Judge


    The Righteous Judge . . .


    In the story of the adulterous woman, Jesus teaches that human judgment is inaccurate. He also teaches about God’s mercy. The question, “Does suffering come from God?” is answered in the animated story of Aaron, a poor blind beggar. Caiaphas angrily sends men to arrest Jesus. Jesus turns aside Caiaphas’ men, saying that they do not judge righteously.

    The Righteous Judge recreates the events that surround Jesus in teaching the principles of  love, forgiveness and righteous judgment. In the story of the adulteress Jesus confronts the Pharisees with the simple phrase, let him without sin cast the first stone, and thereby teaches us of God’s immense mercy and grace. Caiaphus, who unrighteously judges a blind man sinful, is contrasted against the gratitude of the blind man when Jesus freely heals him.

     If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.
                                                                         – John 8:7b (NIV)

    Who is qualified to judge, and by what standards? In The Righteous Judge Christian video, Jesus demonstrates the Father’s wondrous mercy, invites each of us to experience  His forgiveness, and then says, Go and sin no more.

    Main Characters:
    Jesus and the Disciples, Caiaphas and his men, Aaron and his parents, and the condemned woman.

    Scriptural References:
    John 7:1-36, John 8:3-11 and John 9:3-38

    Overall Theme:
    Jesus had to struggle with authorities who saw His message as a threat.  Caiaphas, the high Judge, tries to trick Jesus into making a judgment against the legal and moral authorities.  Jesus responds with the great command: Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.

    Summary:
    The inevitable question, “Does suffering come from God? “is answered in the animated story of Aaron, a poor blind beggar. AfterJesus anoints Aaron’s eyes with clay, the news travels to Caiaphas,the high judge of Israel, that Jesus has healed a man on the Sabbath—even though no work is to be done on that day [according to Jewish law]. Caiaphas angrily sends men to arrest Jesus, and they find Him teaching in the temple. Jesus turns aside Caiaphas’ men, saying  that  they do not judge righteously.

    On the street we see Aaron, a poor blind beggar. As two men pass him, one expresses the belief that Aaron’s blindness is a punishment from God for his sins or the sins of his parents.  Aaron is convinced in his heart and souls that Jesus can heal him. His good parents set off to try to find Jesus.

    Caiaphas, the high judge of Israel, considers himself to be enormously wise – wiser than Solomon.  He sentences a woman, who has been disloyal to her husband, to be stoned to death.

    News comes that Jesus has healed a man on the Sabbath even though, according to Jewish law, no work is to be done on the Sabbath.  Caiaphas angrily sends men to arrest Jesus and they find Him teaching in the temple.  He turns aside Caiaphas’ men, saying they do not judge righteously.

    Caiaphas and his men then plot to trick Jesus.  They bring the condemned woman to Jesus and ask Him to judge her.  If He frees her, He is breaking the law of Moses; to sentence her to be stoned is to break Roman law.

    Jesus says, Let him who has no sin cast the first stone.  The members of the mob who gathered to punish her drop their stones to the pavement and disperse.  Jesus tells the woman, Go, and sin no more.

    When Aaron finds Jesus, Jesus anoints his eyes with clay and tells him to wash in the pool of Siloam.  Aaron does so and his blindness is cured.  Caiaphas questions Aaron, who replies that he was healed by Jesus.  Caiaphas now knows that Jesus is a greater judge than he.

    Background:
    What is the meaning of suffering?  Is it a punishment by God?  Who is qualified to judge and by what standards?  Jesus tells us that as all men are sinners, God alone can judge us.  He does so righteously, with His eternal wisdom and love.

    In The Righteous Judge, Jesus demonstrates God’s  wondrous mercy.  None of us could throw the first stone because we are all guilty of sin.  But Jesus invites each of us to experience His forgiveness and then says, Go and sin no more.

    Zacchaeus is the Chief Publican of Jericho, who gains great wealth by cheating others. His young son has heard of Jesus and wants to go see Him. But Zacchaeus will not give up the opportunity to make money just to listen to a mere “rabbi.”

    In the countryside, a wealthy young man finds Jesus preaching. When he asks Jesus what he must do to  inherit eternal life, Jesus tells him to obey the commandments, to sell all he has and give to the poor. The rich man, unable to part with his gold, turns away.

    When a man named Bartimaeus is arrested, he asks Zacchaeus to let him hear Jesus before being thrown in prison. Zacchaeus is troubled by the intensity of  Bartimaeus’ faith and sets him free. Zacchaeus then witnesses the miraculous healing of Bartimaeus by Jesus.  Zacchaeus struggles to come to terms with his     awakening faith. The things of the world have been     replaced with a longing in his heart, and he prays that Jesus will heal him because he feels he is n’t worthy.

    Jesus, however, tells him that He came to this world not only for those who are righteous, but also to seek and save the lost.  Zacchaeus decides he will give half of his wealth to the poor, and repay those he has cheated. Jesus tells him that because of that decision, salvation will come to him.

Unfortunately, not everyone heeds Jesus’ summons. Many, like this wealthy young man, are tempted and sidetracked by the world. However, those who take after the Publican and follow Jesus will find themselves richly blessed in Heaven.

    Summary:
    The Miracles of Jesus begins with a test  of the disciples’ faith as their as their boat is tossed about on the Sea of  Galilee by a fierce storm. Jesus awakens to calm the storm and asks Peter and the others why they were afraid and why they did n’t have faith in Him to calm the storm.

    We learn of miracles performed by Jesus, including his healing of the palsied child, David, and raising Jairus’ daughter, Sarah from the dead. Because of her faith, just the touch of Jesus’ robe heals a woman who had been sick for 12 years.

    Peter and the others disciples find it hard to believe that faith alone can accomplish so much. While out fishing, Peter sees Jesus walking on the water, seeks to join him and strides across the water’s surface until his

    faith weakens. Jesus explains to the disciples that if their faith is at least as great as that of the tiny mustard seed, then they can do all that he does.  The people living in Galilee believe the miracle they see, but not Caiaphas, the high priest, who angrily calls Jesus a false Messiah.

    The video ends in a loving expression of faith Jesus asks of his disciples and followers as we see little David and Sarah, now healthy and happy, running and playing, their laughter filling our hearts.

    Background:
    In The Miracles of Jesus we see Jesus’ love in action. We learn the importance of faith and its  power to make a difference in our lives. The story vividly demonstrates Jesus’ power and love which still lives as we respond to him with the faith modeled in these beautiful stories.

    Summary:
    With a group of followers gathered about him, Jesus tells the parable of the Prodigal Son, Jacob, the younger son of a successful farmer, begs his father for his inheritance so he can go to the city and become a rich money lender.  Jacob’s brother insists that Jacob stay and do his part of the hard work on the farm.  But Jacob’s father relents and bids a sad good-bye to his younger son.

    In the city, Jacob sees temptations on every corner, and he wastes his money at every opportunity.  When Jacob is chased through the streets by a group of beggars, he is rescued by the lovely Anna and her brother Fashid.  Anna wants to help Jacob invest his money wisely, but Fashid merely wants to take advantage of Jacob.

    Within a short time, Fashid and Jacob have spent all of Jacob’s money.  Jacob declares to Anna that he will return to her when he is rich, but Anna can see that he is foolish and wasteful.  And now that Jacob is poor, Fashid turns his back on him.

    Jacob is reduced to begging in the streets.  He leaves the city, wandering the countryside, where he encounters a farmer who allows him to take care of his animals.  Reaching a new low, Jacob eats with the hogs in order to survive.  In total despair, he decides to return home and beg his father to hire him as a servant.

    In front of his father’s house, Jacob falls to the ground,   begging forgiveness.  His father, delighted to see him, throws a celebration in his honor.  Jacob’s brother, who has done all the work since Jacob left, is angry and feels that he has been slighted.  But his father explains that he would have done the same for him.

    We begin in a room with Jesus and His Disciples. He tells them that many people have desired salvation. In a corner of the room, two men are in deep discussion. One of them, a lawyer, challenges Jesus to tell him what is to be done to inherit eternal life.

    Jesus tells the story of a Jewish man who needed to travel a dangerous road to Jericho to buy spices. His wife worries about his trip to Jericho. But he must make the journey, so he bids his family farewell and goes on his way. At a wayside inn, the innkeeper’s young son overhears two robbers plotting to steal from people on the road.

    On a isolated, mountainous stretch of the road, the two robbers hide among the rocks. Soon the spice merchant comes into view. The robbers then steal his gold and leave him for dead on the deserted road.

    A short while later, a priest finds the abused man. He says that if he were not “on the Lord’s business” he would stop and help him. He continues on his way, leaving the spice merchant to suffer on the road. Next, a Levite finds the dying Jewish man, but he is only concerned with his own safety and runs to avoid the robbers.

    A Samaritan, the natural enemy of the Jews is the last to discover the man on the side of the road. He leaves money for the injured man’s care and continues his voyage. The innkeeper’s son witnesses the actions of the priest, the Levite and the Samaritan. Watching all this, the young boy knows that the Samaritan is truly the good neighbor to his fellow man.

    Background:
    During Biblical times, a Samaritan was despised by most Jews. By using a Samaritan as the good neighbor, Jesus brought even more impact to the story. Because of this powerful parable, a good and generous person now is called a Samaritan.

    Summary:
    Want to know what meek service looks like?
    It looks like Christ humbly kneeling to wash the disciples’ feet. It looks like Jesus embracing the little children. It looks like James helping a fellow prisoner.

    King Agrippa’s chamberlain, Blastus, visits the Kings of Tyre and Sidon in Tyre. He bears bad news from King Agrippa – that he is upset with the two kings. King Agrippa does not feel they show him enough respect. The chamberlain explains that if they do not show proper respect to King Agrippa, there will be consequences. The Kings of Tyre and Sidon tell the chamberlain they will do anything to avoid trouble with King Agrippa.

    James, one of Jesus’ disciples, is working in a field gathering stones to help Jeremiah build a well. Jeremiah tells James that, as an apostle, surely he must have more important things to do. James responds that there is nothing more important than helping each other. They marvel at their community of growing believers and how God has worked miracles.

    In the meantime, King Agrippa’s chamberlain returns to his home. He summons his servant, Gaius, to wash his feet. He shares how the Kings of Tyre and Sidon have signed a proclamation that declares King Agrippa is the greatest of all kings. The chamberlain surmises that if King Agrippa is the greatest of all kings then he must be the greatest of all chamberlains.

    The chamberlain goes to King Agrippa to tell him of the proclamation. However, King Agrippa is upset because he has a list of his subjects who have become Christians. The chamberlain is surprised as Jesus has been dead for 13 years. King Agrippa is angry because he believes no one’s power should be growing but his own. The chamberlain assures the king that he will take care of the problem. Before being ordered to leave, the chamberlain tries in earnest to share the news about the proclamation but to no avail. The king’s counselor interjects that the Christians are of no threat to the king. However, the king admonishes him.

    In the meantime, James and Jeremiah reflect on Jesus’ words about the Samaritan woman at the well that those who drink living water will never thirst again. Just then, the king’s chamberlain arrives at the well and arrests James. Jeremiah tries to intervene, but James assures him that if they love one another, all will be well. The chamberlain goes to the king to tell him of the news of James’ arrest and that he is to work at the salt mines. However, King Agrippa wants him executed which the chamberlain agrees to arrange. The chamberlain seizes the opportunity to interject the news of the Kings of Tyre and Sidon’s proclamation and that they’ve come to throw the king a banquet. King Agrippa decides it will be an ideal opportunity to declare war on the two kings. His counselor advises that a great man helps those around him, not destroys them. The king admonishes the two men declaring that he will be the greatest of all kings.

    Meanwhile at the salt mines, James is told to record the salt bags carried out of the mine. One of the guards, Lysander, informs the other guard, Vespi, that Marcus has been made a captain over 500 hundred soldiers. The two begin to argue over who should be his second in command. At that point, James begins to reflect on when the disciples were arguing over who should be first and second in command to Jesus. They ask Jesus which of the disciples should lead. Jesus explains that they must become humble as a child. James reflects on another time with Jesus when His disciples were turned away from a city where they had wanted Jesus to share the word of God. They asked Jesus if they should send fire from heaven and burn down the wicked city. 

    Jesus explains how he had not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. After reflecting on Jesus’ words, James explains to the guard, Lysander, that to be a leader he must first serve soldiers in his command to earn their full heart. The guard laughs at James. James then reflects on yet another time with Jesus when he spoke to the disciples of his impending crucifixion and resurrection. The disciples were perplexed as they thought Jesus was going to Jerusalem to be crowned King. James and John again ask of Jesus if they will be first and second in command to His new Kingdom. Jesus explains that God’s Kingdom is not like worldly kingdoms. Jesus goes on to say, Whoever desires to be the greatest in the Kingdom of God, let him be the least. Whoever wants to be known as a master, let him be a servant first.

    The story returns to King Agrippa admiring new riches bestowed upon him by the Kings of Tyre and Sidon. His chamberlain, Blastus, implores him not to wage war on the two kings and their countries as they are willing to lavish him with even more gifts. King Agrippa notes that he is a rising star – the greatest of all kings.

    Back at the salt mines, Marcus appears and says he won’t be able to oversee the executions the next day as he will be taking his command. He also must decide upon a lieutenant immediately. The guards, Vespi and Lysander, vie for Marcus’s lieutenant position. Lysander gets the upper hand, demonstrating his strength by being forceful with the salt mine slaves.

    James reminisces about the Last Supper with Jesus. Again, the disciples argue over who should sit next to Jesus. With no servants at hand and without a word, Jesus goes and picks up a bowl of water and cloth. He then kneels at Peter’s feet to wash them much to the amazement of the other disciples. He implores them to serve one another as He has served them. Jesus gives them a new commandment that you love another, even as I have loved you.

    James’ attention is snapped back to the present where the guard, Vespi, angry over the idea of Lysander being Marcus’s second in command, determines he will show Marcus how he can make men work. He then proceeds to whip an elderly slave. James intercedes and offers to carry the sacks of salt and allow the elderly slave to take on the role of counting. Vespi does not understand why James would do it but allows him.

    King Agrippa’s chamberlain updates him on the upcoming banquet in the king’s honor. He also informs him of James’ scheduled morning execution. King Agrippa is pleased with the news and enters the banquet hall for the great feast. He proclaims a future where the kingdoms of Israel, Tyre, and Sidon stand as friends and are led by King Agrippa. The crowd cheers and proclaims him to speak with the power of a god. Just then, King Agrippa grips at his chest and drops dead.

    James is led away to his execution by Lysander who mocks and ridicules him. However, James is comforted that he will now be entering the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Background:
    Israelites ate the Passover meal and celebrated it the next day. It was Thursday evening Jesus ate the last Passover meal. We call it also the Last Supper. According to the Jewish custom, when the master comes home, the servant must bring the water and wash the feet of the master. Since there was no servant provided, the disciples did not bother to wash their own feet.

    Jesus humbled himself and served them like their servant. Though He was the Son of God, He did not claim His right. Rather He gave up His right and humbled Himself to serve the disciples. He could have claimed His right at least for this last meal, but He not only gave up His right, but He also determined to serve them humbly. He took the form of a servant and began to wash their feet one by one.

    As the Master and Teacher, Jesus showed, by washing the disciples’ feet, that humble serving is true loving, and all positions are meant to serve. Jesus’ act of humble serving is the foundation of all God’s work.

    With The Greatest is the Least interactive Bible video, children will learn that the way to greatness in His Kingdom is not found in how many serve you. . .but in how many you serve.

    Summary:
    The Messiah Comes opens with Cleopas getting ready to go into Jerusalem for the Passover.  He is persecuted twice by Roman soldiers on his way to Jerusalem and is hopeful that the Messiah will bring them a new ruler.  Once in Jerusalem, Cleopas meets up with Nicodemus, a Pharisee, and his friend.

    Jesus enters the temple and hears the noise of the busy commerce.  Two Pharisees are sent to watch over Jesus while He is in the city.  They have been told His followers claim He is the Messiah, and they do not believe it. Jesus makes His way to the money changers, begins to knock over tables, and disrupts the trading.  Jesus is upset that His Father’s house has been turned into a house of thieves. The Pharisees question His reasoning to destroy the temple.  Jesus does n’t answer at first but then answers saying, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Pharisees, Nicodemus and Cleopas are all confused by Jesus’ words.

    The Sanhedrin is full of the governing council, the Pharisees, and they are debating Jesus’ actions, His heritage and His claim to be the Messiah. Nicodemus leaves to find Jesus. Jesus appears on the edge of a cliff and tells him that a man must be born again to be saved and have eternal life. He continues by saying that just as Moses raised the serpent, even so shall He be lifted up. The following scenes show Jesus calming the seas of Galilee at night, bringing a child back to life, raising a widow’s son from the dead, healing a crippled boy, forgiving a harlot and teaching the people to love their enemies.

    Jesus returns to Jerusalem again for the Passover riding on a donkey and is surrounded by His disciples. The Pharisees question Jesus’ authority so Jesus responds with the parable of the Lord of the Vineyard which predicts His own death. Worried that the King will fear they have lost control, Jesus is arrested and judged.  Jesus crucifixion is not shown, but the three crosses are seen on the mountain top. Next, Nicodemus is seen buying spices to prepare a body for burial.

    The last scene in the video is of Cleopas and a friend by the well discussing Jesus’ crucifixion.  Jesus appears asking, “Why are you sad?” Not knowing the man is Jesus resurrected, Cleopas begins to tell him about Jesus and how they thought the Messiah would come and deliver them from Rome.  Jesus tells them that the scriptures teach that the Messiah would suffer and die for our transgressions and iniquities. Cleopas, his friend and Jesus break bread together. The nail marks in His hands are noticed, and the men realize that the man is Jesus.  Jesus leaves the men, and Cleopas recognizes that three days have passed since His crucifixion.  Cleopas now knows that Jesus rose from the dead and lives!

    Background:
    In His final days on earth, Jesus’ disciples struggle to understand His mission.  They are blinded by their expectations of the Messiah, thinking He would deliver them from Roman rule.

    The Messiah Comes! Bible video makes the message plain while teaching children that Jesus offers deliverance from the bondage of sin and death and gives hope of eternal life through His atonement.

    Summary:
    The Lost is Found is the story of three sinners, Miriam the harlot, Jonah, a sick man, and Matthew the publican.  The parables of the lost coin and the lost sheep are weaved into these three stories to show forgiveness for all sinners who repent.

    The video opens with Miriam working in a pub as a waitress and harlot.  She is trapped in this life due to debt and guilt.  A letter comes from her brother, Jonah, to the house of a scribe.  The scribe reads the letter which tells of her brother’s expected death.  The scribe does not invite Miriam inside his house because he believes a sinner should not enter the house of the righteous.  He goes to Miriam in the streets to offer her ten coins so that she might start a new life. The parable of the lost coin is weaved into the story of Miriam as she loses one coin, and all rejoice when the coin is found.  Miriam tries to escape her life only to be betrayed.

    The video moves to the story of Jonah.  He is lying sick in a bed and cannot be moved, so his friends carry him on his bed to see Jesus.  They have heard of Jesus’ many miracles.  Once they are at the home where Jesus is teaching, the crowd will not allow them to enter.  The friends climb up on the roof and lower the bed with Jonah down into the house through an opening in the roof. Jesus knows of the faith of Jonah and his friends  and forgives Jonah of his sins. 

    The teachers in the home think Jesus is committing blasphemy by forgiving sins. Jesus asks the teachers which is more difficult, to forgive sins or to tell the sick man to rise, take your bed and walk?  In order to show that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins. Jesus tells Jonah to rise, take his bed and walk.  Jonah does as commanded by Jesus and thanks Him for his forgiveness.  Jonah and his friends rejoice.  Jonah leaves to find his sister, Miriam, and tell her of the miracle and the forgiveness of Jesus.

    The last story is of Matthew and the tax collectors. Jesus invites Matthew to follow him.  Matthew follows Jesus and invites the tax collectors to his house to meet Jesus at a great feast.  Some teachers cannot believe that Jesus, a holy man, eats with sinners. One teacher goes up to the home and asks to see Jesus. When the teacher is inside, Jesus knows of his question and tells him that the doctor goes to the sick, and He goes to the sinners.

    The video ends with the parable of the lost sheep.  This parable is weaved into the story of Jonah trying to find his sister, Miriam.  After many hardships, the boy shepherd finds his lost sheep, and Jonah finds his lost sister.  Jonah tries to persuade his sister to go and see Jesus.  At first she refuses because she thinks of her many sins.  While Jesus was having dinner at the home of a scribe whom questions Jesus actions, Miriam appears and washes Jesus’ feet with oils and her hair.  As she is crying and worshiping Jesus, the scribe wonders why Jesus does not rebuke her. Jesus tells the story of the debtors who were forgiven by the lender, and how they loved their lender for forgiving them. Miriam’s faith saved her, and her sins were forgiven. In the end, Miriam is seen traveling to Jonah’s home, free of the pub owner, and they rejoice together.

    Background:
    Since the beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry, people have struggled to understand Him.  Those that recognize their own sins often wonder why Jesus would want to help anyone so lost.  Through stories and parables the lesson of how all sinners may repent and receive forgiveness is taught.  Every lost person is important to Jesus and the angels rejoice when just one sinner repents.

    Summary: 
    The Parables of Jesus includes three of the most loved parables: The Two Sons, The Rich Man and Lazarus and The Talents. 

    The video begins with Jesus telling the story of the two sons. It is harvest time and the two sons cannot be found.  Their father searches out to find his sons so the harvest would not be lost.  The oldest son, who is suppose to inherit the vineyard, is found relaxing by the shore and promises to come help but does not. The younger son is frustrated about doing all the work since his brother will inherit the land.  He refusing to come help, but changes his mind and returns to the vineyard to ask his father for forgiveness and to help with the harvest. In the end, the father rewards the youngest son with the vineyard because he was always there for him and used his time wisely. 

    Next, the parable of The Rich Man and Lazarus is told by Jesus. Lazarus is very poor and is searching for food in front of a rich man’s house.  He begs for the scraps from the rich man’s plate.  The rich man refuses to help Lazarus.  Both Lazarus and the rich man die and find themselves in two very different places. Father Abraham welcomes and comforts Lazarus while the rich man is in torment because of his actions on earth. 

    The last parable, The Talents, is a teaching about the Kingdom of Heaven. A master is preparing to go on a long  journey and leaves his three servants entrusted with his property and money.  He instructs them to multiply their coins and that there will be an accounting upon his return.  All will receive the same reward if they do their best. Two of the three use their time wisely, multiply their coins and help others while investing their money.  The third servant does not use his time wisely nor invest his money. Upon the master’s return, he rewards the two servants whom used their time wisely and for the good of others, while the third is not rewarded because he did not use the talents that he was given.
