replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, 'I am the voice of one calling in
the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.''" – John
What better way to teach children ages 3 to 12 about
baptism than with the language of animation! The John the Baptist video on DVD is
a story of courage, kindness, and conviction seen through the life of one of
God’s greatest prophets, John the Baptist.
Characters: John the Baptist and his parents, Elizabeth and
Zacharias; Jesus; King Herod and his wife, Herodias
References: Luke 1:5-80, John 1:15-51, Matthew 3:1-6 & 14:3-10
Theme: John the Baptist, born to an elderly couple in answer to
their prayers and a promise from God, grows up to be a prophet. Dedicating his
life to preparing the way for Jesus Christ, John faces both political and
spiritual adversity. Despite difficulties, he gains strength and integrity as
he stands against hardships in order to preach the coming of the Lord.
Eventually he fulfills the ancient prophecy by baptizing Jesus
Christ and recognizing him as the promised Savior.
You Know? John was born about six months before Jesus.
Jesus Christ and John the Baptist were related; their
mothers, Mary and Elizabeth, were cousins.
