The DVD “Jesus Is The Good News!” covers the Gospels – which means you can learn all about Jesus: who He is, what He did on the cross, and what it means for us today.
Below, Phil Vischer answers a few questions about the DVD and how it helps teach the Gospel to kids.
In DVD 10, Phil Vischer tells the story of Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection. But, what is the next step? Should cartoon characters or puppets bring children to the point of salvation? Phil believes that step should be person-to-person, and not left to a DVD. In DVD 10, he walks children through the Good News and then encourages them to talk to a grown-up to take the next step to decide to follow Jesus. Find out more!

A mom from Monrovia told us, “I have been excited for the release of the What’s In The Bible? explanation of who Jesus is. I was not disappointed! I love the truth, the emotion, the information, and the heart of the story. The characters themselves struggle with the truth of what Jesus did for them, and this moment gives such an opportunity for young hearts to really wonder at the truth.” Buy “Jesus Is The Good News!” from our store.
