Review of “What’s In the Bible”

Background

I trust that many of you know who Phil Vischer is.  He founded Veggietales in 1990 and built the company into a wildly successful venture.  Phil left the company in 2003 (though he continues to voice characters in the movies).  Phil wrote about the whole adventure in a series called What Happened to Big Idea? After a couple of other ventures, Phil started Jelly Fish labs and Jellytelly in 2008 as a revolutionary way to reach children with the gospel of Christ.

The Jellytelly website started as a subscription site, then went to a free format (which is when I found them) and now appears to be subscription based again with some free content.  With puppet based characters like Buck Denver, Sunday School Lady, and many more combined with interviews with kids and The Fabulous Bentley Brothers (check out Old Testament…New Ideas (Jelly Telly’s Books of the Bible Series)), Jelly Telly offers internet based programming to teach kids about Christianity.

In 2009, Phil Vischer and Jelly Telly announced that they were joining forces with Focus on the Family and Tyndale House Publishing to produce a new 13 part series for kids called “What’s in the Bible” to walk kids through the Bible.  An ambitious project to walk kids through the entire Bible, I was excited to get my hands on it when it was first announced.  I was lucky enough to receive a preview copy of the first episodes – “In the Beginning” to review on this site.

Old Testament…New Ideas (Jelly Telly’s Books of the Bible Series)

The folks over at Jelly Telly are working their way through a kids sized explanation of the books of the Old Testament.  For those who don’t know, Jelly Telly is Phil Vischer’s (creator of Veggietales) new home.  These videos use both The Fabulous Bentley Brothers and Sunday School Lady to teach us about the books of the Old Testament.  The videos are great for kids, children’s ministry and adults.  Thanks to Tony Kummer over at Ministry-To-Children.com for turning me on to these.  Here’s Genesis through Nehemiah:
