We tend to teach many of the Biblical events to our children (particularly the Old Testament) as just a bunch of disconnected stories that have no real relevance to their own lives. They seem to survive just fine when they are very young, but as they grow and are increasingly challenged by the world regarding the validity of their faith, they all too often fall away, having only shallow beliefs (based on cute stories) and lacking true conviction and a solid understanding of Gods Word as actual history. This is a very fun topic because it has been a huge help to people when trying to get a handle on the Old Testament. It allows people to see the Old Testament as one continuous story and helps them know where the dinosaurs fit in, when the flood was, how and when the ice age occurred, when Abraham came on the scene, addresses the issue of all the violence in the Old Testament, as well as all of the other major characters from Abraham up to Christ. It gives the audience one timeline with all the major events.

This presentation was immensely helpful and added depth and perspective to the old testament stories. Jay does a wonderful job at tying things together in a way that's easy to understand. I would recommend this presentation whether you're a new Christian or have been in the faith quite some time.

We enjoyed this video as it put historic events into a proper perspective and we learned some interesting things we didn't know.
