DVD - "Jacob's Gift"
Posted by member Cindy LB
We used the movie, "Jacob's Gift", yesterday at church and the kids loved it. They were rivoted to their seats. It's live action, not animation and is based on a Max Lucado's book by the same name.
Jacob's Gift, Published by Thomas Nelson. 30 minutes.

GodTube Summary: "The one who builds the best project will be asked to help build the new synagogue," Rabbi Simeon announces to the students in his woodworking shop. Young Jacob struggles to choose just the right project, but harassed by his fellow students for his creativity, and with his father's inn overflowing with guests, Jacob is pulled away from his woodworking by duties and distractions. In the end, by meeting a family with a newborn baby, he learns an important lesson about giving. Trailer http://www.godtube.com/watch/?v=YGWWPNNX.
