Here is a fine series of short dramas on the following parables of the Lord: the good Samaritan, the unmerciful servant, the treasure and the pearl, the lost son, the midnight visitor, the dinner, and the manager. The acting in these dramas is superb, and the DVD could be a wonderful resource for Bible studies, small groups, and Sunday Schools. The lessons of the various parables are unmistakable, and the settings give an accurate picture of Bible times. Most would concur that this type of treatment is preferred over animated cartoon material.
