The Jesus Story For Children

Friday night, we watched the Jesus Story For Children.  This is a great little video that our youngers have enjoyed for many years.  It is available through Amazon's third party sellers. But that is not the point of this post.  
What I wanted to share was how funny it can be to listen to little ones share their knowledge of the word.  In the beginning of the story there is a scene with Jesus and His disciples having dinner.  Samuel pipes up and asks, "Is that the Last Supper?"  Someone says, "No, not yet."  Then Samuel says to Aedan, "It must be the middle supper."   

That's not all, though.  Earlier this week, Kaitlin was telling the little ones about Jezebel and how wicked she was and how she had Naboth killed to get his vineyard and how eventually she died when she fell off a wall and was eaten by dogs.  (Yes, I do often wonder how exactly she chooses the bedtime stories she tell the boys.)  Well, next in the movie, Mary Magadelene shows up and annoints Jesus feet with oil.  Samuel could barely contain his excitement as he shouted and said, "I know who that is!  That's the girl who fell off the wall."   Never mind that one was in the Old Testament and one in the New. 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, and I am sure this won't be the last time, either...  A little Bible knowledge in the hands of a four year old can provide hours of laughter.



  1. A little Bible knowledge in the hand of a 4 year old also provides many profound thoughts when we take the time to listen....

    Hope you are doing well. I got to meet Laura from Goose Hill Farm this past Saturday and thought about how fun it would be to meet many others who don't live that far away (like you)!

    Hugs, blessings, and prayers,

  2. Kat,

    Love the honestly of a little child. At least they are trying right? They are remembering some things!

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.

    Please stop by my blog today to meet a blogger in need of help!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
