Look at the second hand your watch. Hold on a sec. What’s a watch? Let’s start over. Open the Timer App on your smartphone. Set the timer for 11 minutes and 31 seconds.
Now, walk through the entire gospel – creation, sin, deliverance, Jesus, disciples, betrayal, communion, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, the birth of the early church, and the coming judgment, restoration, and glory – before your timer reaches 0:00.
Now do it again in a way that is visual, auditory, humorous, and totally engaging for kids of all ages.
Or…if you’d rather, you could sit down with your kids or students and watch this video:

Over the last several months I have become increasingly aware of a fantastic ministry: What’s in the Bible? I will be doing a full write-up, review (and giveaway!) next month.
Until then, here’s the super-short overview:
- The creator of WITB? is Phil Vischer. (He also created this little ministry you probably never heard of called VeggieTales! ®)
- They have terrific curriculum writers. I’ve gotten to know Amy Dolan of Lemon Lime Kids. You really should check out her site.
- They have resources for families to use at home.
- They have curriculum for churches and small groups.
- They’ve already released 10 DVDs (and more are coming)
- 1-9 walk through the entire Old Testament.
- DVD 10 just came out and covers the four gospels. (The video you just watched is adapted from DVD 10.)
You can find out more about What’s in the Bible? by clicking their logo at the top of this post (or you can click here if you’re not in the mood to scroll).
And stay tuned for my full review – and giveaway! – next month!
What is a creative way you have seen the gospel shared?
