What’s in the Bible? {Easter Giveaway}

We’ve been watching The Bible on Sunday evenings.  (Yes, doing a little cable experiment at our home for the first time in 9 years).  It’s not looking good for cable… I’ll keep you posted.)  We try to let the kids watch (they want to!) but the problem is that The Bible is gory.  And violent.  And rather scary for children (and adults!) at times.  Ick.

It’s hard to tell the kids, “No, you can’t watch The Bible.”  Feels all sorts of wrong, because they are hungry for the stories and the knowledge.

Our solution? What’s in the Bible DVDs!  Now we’re talking!  VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer and a bunch of hilarious friends explain the entire Bible to kids in this groundbreaking, fast-paced, and fun-filled DVD series! 

Now that sounds like family movie night!  Our kids are getting this DVD set in their Easter baskets this year, and I believe it’s safe to say we’ll be forgiven for not letting them watch The Bible with us on Sunday nights.  The same stories presented in kid-friendly fashion?  Yes, please!  And since they’re created by Phil Vischer, I know we can’t go wrong.  We love us some Veggie Tales around here!

Interested in What’s in the Bible? for your own family?  The good people at What’s in the Bible have provided a giveaway for one of my readers!  Enter to win four What’s in the Bible DVDs.  One winner will receive Volumes 1-3, and Volume 10:  Jesus is the Good News, just in time for Easter.

  1. I try to separate Bunny Easter and Jesus Easter as much as possible. We will do Easter baskets/hunts, but usually the week before actual Easter. I want Easter Sunday to be entirely about the Resurrection as much as possible.

    I already have volumes 1-9, but I’m dying to get my hands on volume 10 of What’s In the Bible! If I win, we will donate the other volumes to a friend or our church!

    We’ve been watching this, too. I agree about the gory part. We have the movie “The Passion of Christ”, and I can’t watch all of it. I got to the part where the soldiers are beating him, and had to turn it off after about 30-seconds. I was crying so hard that I couldn’t see. We really need to watch it before the end of the month. This year Easter is going to be doubly hard for me. Easter falls on the last day of March. (The 31-st). That was also the day that my daddy got hit by a car and died. (Before I was born in October.)

    • Before you were born? Oh, my heart. How hard is that. :(

      • Deborah Jennings says:

        It is hard, but “Thank God” I had my Grandpa. He was my whole world for a long time. I slept with him and my Grandma until I ran her out of the bed, and then I slept with him until I was 12 or 13. I had to decide that I was too old. He put me in bed with them when I was 10 months old and he found me in my bed cold and wet.

        I miss not having known my Daddy, even at 61 years old. It will be 62 years since Daddy died on Easter Sunday. It is hard, but I feel that is when God gave me the grandpa He gave me.

  3. We are trying to find more options for our childrens’ Easter baskets this year rather than chocolate and jelly beans!! I hope to win these SOOOO bad :) If not, I will purchase a couple VeggieTales DVDs. Along with a few Holy Cards (St. Francis for sure!). Thanks for hosting!!

  4. We don’t do Easter Baskets. Our kids are 2-1/2 and I guess it’s something we really haven’t had to address…yet. The hubby grew up w/o them, I grew up w/them. I am perfectly okay w/o doing them…less “stuff” I need to worry about. We are slowly beginning to get the What’s in the Bible DVD’s…we have two so far, so that when the kids do get a bit older, we can take part in those.

  5. Amy when you mentioned you’d been watching The Bible on T.V. I was thinking “Amy finally broke down and got cable!” LOL! Hubby has been watching too and when I catch a glimpse of it I wonder “How can you watch that?” But he seems to be really enjoying the episodes.

    • We finally did. Ha! I don’t know if we’ll keep it, though. I don’t like how much tv the kids are watching, and we’re not getting the bang for our buck we were promised. We’ll see…

  6. Yes we love Easter Baskets. We have never done the big easter bunny thing but the kids play along and make it fun.

  7. This would be wonderful, I care for my granddaughter 5 days a week and I’m trying to teach her about the Bible. I agree the other is not child freindly. Kind of sad really.
