I was disappointed, because I expected (or hoped for) more. I really wanted "Treasures in Heaven" but could not find it on the site, so I presumed the contents of this CD included it. I bought this to show prisoners who are in the Horizons program at Tomoka Correctional Instutiton, where the Diocese has a particular inmate who has been commissioned as Lay Ecclesial Minister. The non-dvd items are nice but not really much use to him, the CLEM, or me (a volunteer). I learned of the NEST items by seeing the series on EWTN.

All of the classic bible stories that you know, and that every child should know, are put into cartoon from. The animation is fabulous and it is like you are right there listening to Jesus Himself telling His parables. The interpretation seems to be straight from the Bible, and there are no flaws in the storyline, the animation, or any other aspect of the movie. I really enjoyed it and I recommend it to anyone.

"The disciples came to him and asked, 'Why do you speak to the people in parables?' 'This is why I speak to them in parables: Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.'"– Matthew 13:10, 13 (NIV)

Main Characters:
Jesus, the two sons, Lazarus, the rich man and the three servants

Scriptural References:
Matthew 13: 11-17; Matthew 21: 28-32; Matthew 25: 14-30; Luke 16: 19-31

Overall Theme:
The video reinforces the principles of forgiveness, compassion and stewardship.  The parables teach us to be good stewards of our time and the things we have been given.

Summary:
The Parables of Jesus includes three of the most loved parables: The Two Sons, The Rich Man and Lazarus and The Talents. The video begins with Jesus telling the story of the two sons.

It is harvest time and the two sons cannot be found.  Their father searches out to find his sons so the harvest would not be lost.  The oldest son, who is suppose to inherit the vineyard, is found relaxing by the shore and promises to come help but does not. The younger son is frustrated about doing all the work since his brother will inherit the land.  He refusing to come help, but changes his mind and returns to the vineyard to ask his father for forgiveness and to help with the harvest. In the end, the father rewards the youngest son with the vineyard because he was always there for him and used his time wisely.

Next, the parable of The Rich Man and Lazarus is told by Jesus. Lazarus is very poor and is searching for food in front of a rich man’s house.  He begs for the scraps from the rich man’s plate.  The rich man refuses to help Lazarus.  Both Lazarus and the rich man die and find themselves in two very different places. Father Abraham welcomes and comforts Lazarus while the rich man is in torment because of his actions on earth.

The last parable, The Talents, is a teaching about the Kingdom of Heaven. A master is preparing to go on a long journey and leaves his three servants entrusted with his property and money.  He instructs them to multiply their coins and that there will be an accounting upon his return.  All will receive the same reward if they do their best. Two of the three use their time wisely, multiply their coins and help others while investing their money.  The third servant does not use his time wisely nor invest his money. Upon the master’s return, he rewards the two servants whom used their time wisely and for the good of others, while the third is not rewarded because he did not use the talents that he was given. 

Did You Know? The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus has been called the most vivid account of the afterlife to be found in the New Testament!
Background:
