Campus Crusade for Christ has expanded its worldwide ministry begun with the "JESUS" film with a child-oriented version called "The Story of Jesus for Children".  This video presents the story of Jesus as seen through the eyes of children who might have lived during the time Jesus was here on earth.  Dramatic visual interpretation supports the dialog, which is true to the Biblical revelation.  The entire movie is 62 minutes in length, and is available for purchase as a VHS video cassette and DVD at the "Jesus for Children" web site for less than $15.

I have begun using short clips from this movie to introduce our current series of lessons from the life of Christ.  The children respond to it well, and several have asked if they might borrow the video to view at home.  For your convenience, I provide the following key of the major events of the film.  The index is in minutes and seconds from the title of the movie, and should allow you to cue the tape to the scene of interest with little difficulty.
