Jesus used parables to teach truth, to get people thinking about faith and life, to challenge them to live differently. Now you can do the same for your students with thought-provoking short films from 36 Parables.
Your students will identify with these modern-day retellings of Jesus' words. Whether you use 36 Parables films as introductions to messages, illustrations, or discussion starters, your students will discover the truth inside the stories and see God's truth in a new light.
On this DVD, you'll find powerful retellings of three parables, and you can use the bonus videos to take the learning even deeper. The parables on Blue include:
* The Music Box, based on the Parable of the Hidden Treasure (Matthew 13:44), tells the story of a collector trying to persuade a reluctant antique shop owner to sell him a familiar old music box.
* Like Father Like Son, based on the Parable of the Two Debtors (Luke 7:36-48), tells the story of a teenager who graffitis his father's church because of unresolved issues between them. Only the teen's grandfather can persuade his son and grandson to forgive each other.
* Gnobody's Gnome, based on the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18:15-35), uses a humorous slant to tell the story of a middle-aged man who must find the missing member of his gnome collection in the hopes of solving his financial problems.
Illuminate God's Word in a whole new way, and your students will begin to see their faith in a whole new way.
