Our Weekly Freebie Friday: #236
This summer our church is going through the parables of Jesus and, since I teach the junior/senior high sunday school class, it seemed appropriate for our class to follow suit. I know there’s several different parable video series’ out there, but the one I landed on is 36 Parables.
Basically, it’s a series of short-film videos that retell the parables in a contemporary setting. The videos are very professional, engaging, and tell the stories well in a 5-12 minute time-frame. They’re also accompanied with a discussion guide that I appreciate because the outlines are very flexible, provide a lot of helpful cultural background to each parable, and offer some good, insightful questions. I also appreciate that it seems to be the perfect balance for making our combined junior/senior high sunday school class engaging for both age groups together.
You can watch all of their videos for free on their website at 36parables.com, but you can also download a free copy of their video, “Found,” which is based on the parable of the Lost Coin in Luke 15: 8-10, and you can also grab the free discussion guide to go along with it. Look for the download links in the upper-right corner of the site.
