A site for kids that is worth the money

I had played around with the idea of joining Jelly Telly most of the seven years they have been up.

“What’s in the Bible” folks (creators of Veggie Tales) have this grea dvd about Christmas in which they cover everything from why it’s celebrated on Dec 25 to what the deal is with Santa and trees.  When my sick kids wanted to watch it and our dvd was awol, I decided to check out the site.

First, the first month is free.  Then it’s a $5 monthly fee.

So what could you get for that?  There are all 20+  What’s in the Bible shows –a church history/Bible survey class for kids.  And series like Mandie, Last Chance Detectives, and Sugar Creek Gang,  as well as some other full length individual movies.  There are also games, and some of them have some really good educational/spiritual value to them!

There is also the opportunity as you watch the “What’s in the Bible” series with your kids to learn discernment, and how to look to the Word.  For instance, Phil does a great job of explaining both theistic evolution and strict creation.  He emphasizes that the main point is that God created, and that things that are not central to the gospel shouldn’t cause enmity between us, which is something I agree with.  We are all in the process of growing, and I hope next year means that your own convictions will have changed someone by Him who is bringing to you maturity.

Philippians 1:6

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”
Even if you disagree wtih me on this point, you will never find an in-depth series that you agree with one hundred percent, so it’s good to teach your children how to discern, and be gracious to other believers.
With all that said, I still think the series is an amazing introduction to Church History and Bible Survey!  Even with a college education, I’ve been taught a few things!
