David and Goliath is one of the twelve programs in the Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible series. This program features: All-new animation, an introduction by Charlton Heston, and "Simon & Gimmel -Your Faithful Guides," two animated characters who lead viewers through the story and make it accessible for all ages.
Daniel and the Lion's Den
There are many heroes in the Old Testament. Some are great warriors. But others are men of quiet faith--men who display their courage not on the battle field, but simply by refusing to disobey God. Daniel is such a man. His story has been brought to life in a beautifully animated film that will appeal to your entire family.
Jonah and the Whale
Jonah And The Whale is a great adventure story-but is much more than that. On its deepest level, it is a commentary on God;s willingness to punish sinners-and on His capacity for forgiveness. Now you can share this wonderful story with your entire family. The story begins when Jonah is a mere boy.
The forces of the Assyrian Empire have been terrorizing Jonah and his people-and Jonah quickly grows to hate them. He vows that he will one day take his revenge. But years later, God asks Jonah to go and preach to the Assyrians. If Jonah convinces them to renounce their sinful ways, God will forgive them. Jonah, of course, wants them to suffer; he wants them to feel the Lord's wrath. And so he foolishly tries to run away.
Needless to say, God catches up with him. And when He does, Jonah learns a series of important lessons about the power of God's wrath, and the power of His love for all mankind.
Joseph And The Coat Of Many Colors
Joseph is among the greatest of the Old Testament heroes. But unlike other Biblical heroes--men like Samson and David--Joseph is not a warrior. His heroism is demonstrated through simple expressions of courage and faith in God. Now, with this new animated film, you can reintroduce your family to Joseph's inspiring story. The tale ends on a note of hope and offers an uplifting moral message to viewers.
Joshua and the Battle of Jericho
Joshua and the Battle of Jericho is one of the most inspiring stories in the Old Testament. Now, with this beautifully animated film, you and your family can experience the power of this classic tale. As the story begins, we learn that the Israelites have been wandering the wilderness for forty years. Now, they are about to enter the Promised Land. A young man, Joshua has been appointed to take Moses' place. As the action unfolds, we witness a series of divine miracles reminiscent of those which allowed the Israelites to escape from Egypt.
Samson & Delilah
Samson is one of the greatest heroes of the Old Testament. His legendary feats of strength have inspired children and adults alike. But Samson and Delilah is not just an adventure story. It is a reminder that all men and women - no matter how great they may be - must abide by the will of God. Now, with this animated film, you can reintroduce your family to this timeless Biblical tale.
Sodom and Gomorrah
Throughout the Old Testament, God demonstrates His willingness to punish sinners. Indeed, on several occasions, He destroys entire populations because they have turned their backs on Him. But always, He manages to find one good man who will carry on and set an example for the rest of humanity. Abraham was such a man. And he is the central character in the powerful story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
After the death and resurrection of Jesus, His followers dedicated themselves to spreading His message throughout the land. Now you can share this uplifting story with your entire family.
The Apostles begins with a miracle. Peter, having been filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, heals a man who has been crippled since birth. The crowd that witnesses the miracle is amazed. But Peter reminds them that he performed this wondrous act for one reason only-to glorify Jesus' name.
As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Peter and the other Apostles are in great danger. The religious authorities see them as a serious threat. And many of them are, indeed, persecuted. At the same time, however, some of the persecutors are themselves converted. Among them is a man who will eventually become the most important Apostle of all.
Last Supper, Crucifixion and Resurrection
The story of Jesus' death and resurrection is one of the most dramatic tales in world literature, and for Christians, it is much more, a ringing affirmation of God's love for mankind. Now the story of His final days has been brought to life through this beautifully animated film.
The story begins in darkness as the religious leaders in Jerusalem gather in a shadowy room, trying to decide what to do about a trouble-maker known as Jesus. Knowing that His days on earth are numbered, Jesus gathers His disciples together for The Last Supper, reassuring them that He will be with them in spirit.
Jesus retires to a garden to pray, but is captured by soldiers before dawn, having been betrayed by Judas, one of His disciples. Within a short time He is crucified. On the third day after His crucifixion, He is resurrected, eventually fulfilling His destiny by ascending to Heaven.
The Miracles of Jesus
The Bible is filled with stories of God's miracles. But the miracles performed by Jesus have a special significance; they reveal His divinity and suggest that those who come to God through Christ will themselves be miraculously transformed.
It's been called the greatest story ever told, and with good reason. For all Christians, the story of Christmas, the story of Jesus' birth represents a new birth of hope for humanity, but it has also attracted millions of non-Christians because of its great beauty.
The Story Of Moses
The Old Testament is filled with inspiring stories. But the story of Moses is, perhaps, the greatest of them all. Now, the story of Moses has been brought to life in a beautifully animated film that will appeal to your entire family. Throughout the story, Moses obeys the Lord's command and leads the Israelites out of Egypt, across the Red Sea. And when he receives from God two stone tablets bearing the Ten Commandments, the people realize that Moses has indeed been acting in accordance with God's will.
