Teaching Children God’s Word
Theo Presents is centered around the adventures and teachings of the main character, Theo, a student of God’s Word. Theo lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and entertains two mice, Belfry and Luther. The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, God’s character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.
Godʼs Heart is the third volume in the Theo DVD series. It contains:
- Episode 7: Justification (approx. 10 mins.)
- Episode 8: Adoption (approx. 11 mins.)
- Episode 9: A Day in Prayer (approx. 11 mins.)
- Bonus episode entitled: The Good News (approx. 5 mins.)
If only God could somehow make sinners righteous without violating His holy character and justice. But that’s just what He did through a process known as justification, a legal term that means, “to declare righteous.” Big word, huh? Theo makes it simple for children––and his two mischievous church mice––to understand, by telling the beautiful story of the thief on the cross, who was justified by his faith in Jesus.
All of us want to belong to a caring family, full of unconditional love, don’t we? When Theo welcomes a dog named Bumper into his home, a suspicious Luther and Belfry want him out! That is, until Bumper saves them from a life-threatening encounter with Scratch the cat! Using the beautiful and touching story seen in the Shoebox Bible Theatre, Theo illustrates the biblical teaching of adoption in the Bible, to show how God lovingly welcomes homeless sinners into His family.
A Day in Prayer
In this episode we catch an insightful glimpse into Theo’s daily prayer life, which is basically an illustration of the Lord’s Prayer model to His disciples. It is important that we learn how to pray, but it is also important to learn how not to pray. We are taught both examples through the Shoebox Bible Theatre and through our humorous UPA sequences. Meanwhile, our two mice friends are faced with a problem of going without their daily cheese, and Belfry learns that we “have not because we ask not.”
