The Kids' Ten
Commandments (K*10*C) 5-DVD Set includes these
So Golden Calf-
The first episode in the series, The
Not-So-Golden Calf, is based on
commandments 1 and 2 - "Do not worship any other
gods besides me" and "Do not make idols of any
kind." While Moses is up on Mount Sinai, the
people of Israel lose faith and are convinced by Hazzaka, the leader of the evil-doers, to build
and worship a "golden calf." Hazzaka selects
Seth's calf, Jacob, as the "model" for the idol.
In the midst of their new popularity, Seth and
Jacob get big heads and turn their backs on God.
Thankfully, before things get out of hand, Moses
returns with the Ten Commandments to reinforce
that there is only one living God, and
worshiping someone or something above God is a
Rest is Yet to Come-
The second episode in
the series, The Rest is Yet to Come, is
based on commandments 3 and 4 -- "Do not misuse
the name of the Lord your God" and "Remember to
observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."
When Seth's mom, Leila, is called away, snarly
old Jeshanah is asked to take care of Seth. Not
the wisest choice, since Jeshanah swears
(conveniently an animal noise or sound covers
the actual words) and proudly sings of his
warped sense of values. Plus, Jeshanah makes
Seth and all the animals work themselves to the
bone on the Sabbath. Thankfully, Moses and
Seth's mom arrive in time to set Jeshanah
A Life and Seth Situation-
The third episode in the K-10-C series,
A Life and Seth Situation, is based on
commandments 5 and 6 - "Honor your father and
mother" and "Do not murder." When Seth and his
friend, Ephraim, go for a "sleep over" on the
outskirts of camp against their parents' better
advice, they encounter a ragtag bandit (special
guest star Lou Diamond Phillips) and his gang on
a pursuit across the desert. A sandstorm forces
them into a cave that just happens to be the bad
guys' hideout. The boys learn the value of
obeying their parents and the sanctity of human
life in this exciting, adventure-filled episode.
Stolen Jewels, Stolen Hearts- Stolen Jewels, Stolen Hearts helps kids understand the meaning and importance of commandments 7 and 8 -- "Do not commit adultery" and "Do not steal." Trouble comes to the Israelites' camp when Simeon (special guest star John Schneider), a handsome singer, literally turns the tents upside down with his lively songs and pocket-picking monkey, Martel. "Anything goes" is Simeon's rule as he unsuccessfully tries to steal the heart of another man's wife. Meanwhile, Amos the rat becomes the "fall guy" for Martel as he steals valuables from people in the camp. Kids will want to watch this action-filled, entertaining story over and over again as they learn about God and his instructions for their lives.
Toying With The Truth- In Toying With the Truth, kids understand the meaning and importance of two of God's commandments -- "Do not testify falsely against your neighbor" and "Do not covet." The finest clothes, the best toys, the coolest pet ... Seth becomes jealous of his best friend, Ephraim, and longs to be "the boy who has everything." When he accidentally breaks Ephraim's amazing one-of-a-kind toy, Seth keeps quiet and lets his friend take the blame until wise Ben-Ami, the toy maker, helps guide him to do what's right. Join the adventure as God's presence fills the tabernacle and the people of Israel continue their journey to the Promised Land in the Kid's Ten Commandments series finale.
*Each Feature DVD has a run time of approximately 30 minutes and teaches two of the Ten Commandments.
