An interactive re-telling
of one of Jesus' most important stories
is an interactive CD for children and youth designed to teach
into memory one of Jesus' most important stories. Through the
Prodigal Son CD your students will learn Jesus' wonderful message
about the character and forgiveness of God, ...and our own need
to be forgiven ..and to forgive.
The Prodigal Son CD retells the Luke 15 story word for word. Not only do your students hear and read the story, they see it unfold on the screen through a unique video retelling of the story set on a modern day farm featuring a father and son. This story is told by your onscreen teacher Bildad the Bible Explorer.
Prodigal Son CD also features clickable multimedia study notes that are embedded in the onscreen text that grab kids' attention. Click a study note icon and Bildad comes alive explaining the concept and showing the concept on his projector screen.
Study Notes include:
Each study note includes a question the teacher can run with.

The music video features recording artist Barry Weaver, and cameo appearances by Sloppy, Waller and Root --the Prodigal Pigs. Pictured below: Sloppy and the Prodigal Son -who's finally coming to his senses.
Other "Channels" on Bildad's SonTV include... a few other of Jesus' teachings about God's forgiveness and a music clip from Christian rock artist Steve Lindsley's song "Native Son." These other channels are perfect for deeper learning with older students, or for extending the use of the CD over several lessons.
After digging into the story and enjoying the multimedia ... students finish the lesson with an onscreen life-applying letter writing activity. Here students take the role of the various characters in the story to express their feelings from their point of view. These can be printed and then discussed.
At the end of the CD, your students are rewarded with The Prodigal Fun Game

content and Bildad to reflect on content.
