Homeschool Review Crew: Our Review of Drive Thru History® – “The Gospels”

     Our family has enjoyed watching Drive Thru History® for years.  We love their Ancient History and American History shows and were very excited to be picked to receive and review Drive Thru History® – “The Gospels”.  

     When they arrived in our mailbox, the kids were smiling from ear to ear.  I have to say that I had a little smile on my face too.  I knew that these videos were going to teach us about Christ in a fun yet informative way.  

     The set includes:

  • 3 DVDs that holds 18 wonderful episodes that last about 30 minutes each

           Episode 1: The Historical Landscape
           Episode 2: The Announcements
           Episode 3: Jesus is Born
           Episode 4: Jesus Grows Up
           Episode 5: Jesus Starts His Ministry
           Episode 6: Jesus Returns to Galilee
           Episode 7: Jesus Begins His Miracles
           Episode 8: Jesus Teaches with Authority
           Episode 9: The Sermon on the Mount
           Episode 10: Jesus Travels the Sea of Galilee
           Episode 11: Jesus Travels North
           Episode 12: A Final Trip to Jerusalem
           Episode 13: Jesus Arrives in Jerusalem
           Episode 14: The Last Supper
           Episode 15: The Trial of Jesus
           Episode 16: The Crucifixion of Jesus
           Episode 17: The Resurrection of Jesus
           Episode 18: Who is Jesus?

  • An 118-page study guide that is beautifully illustrated and in a hardback cover
  •  A dust cover for the set
     In each episode, you will learn about the life of Christ.  From His birth to His death and resurrection, the journey that Dave Stotts takes you on is such a blessing.  You will get to visit where Christ walked here on earth.  Over 50 different sites are visited in these amazing videos.  

     My children couldn't wait to watch each episode.  We used these as our Bible class and I had a hard time getting them to watch only one a day. I love the fact that these shows are educational yet fun to watch. They incorporate truth with some humor and that is always a great combination to teach children of all ages.  The study guide gave us some great discussion questions to go over after each episode.  It started some really wonderful conversations between our kids and us.  The study guide also shared what chapters of the Bible should be read with each lesson and that made incorporating the Bible into our study much easier.  

      As I watched my children grow spiritually and learn as they watched these shows, my heart was filled with joy.  When we went over the discussion questions, I could see how much they were gleaning from this experience.  When you can bring the Bible to life like this, they learn so much and it helps the accounts found in scriptures become more real to them.  I believe these types of series can be life changing for young people.  God can work in their lives and hearts as they watch.  

      I encourage you to check out all the Drive Thru History® products, but especially the Drive Thru History® – “The Gospels”.  It's important for parents to help their children learn and understand the scriptures and these DVDs are a wonderful way to help you in that endeavor.  

     If you would like to read more reviews of this amazing series, please come on over to Homeschool Review Crew website.  I always like to read honest and informative reviews of products I am considering for our home.  

     Have a blessed day and God bless you!
