This topic is for posting Video/A-V Workshop lessons, ideas and resources for teaching the story of Esther.
There have been two "go to" videos on Esther:
- Esther, from Nest Entertainment (30 min)
- Esther the girl who would be Queen, from Veggie Tales (30 min)
- #7 in the What's in the Bible? series of kids DVDs, "Exile and Return" has 30 minutes on Esther. This 60 min video has two 30 minute parts, the second part of which is all about Esther. It's a great Sunday School overview and understanding of how Esther fits into the Bible's timeline and Jewish history. It also has a fine section on "who were the Jews" and how is Esther's story about "God's Rescue Plan".
- For older children, teens, and longer class times, there's also the:
Esther video from the TNT Bible Collection Series (same series as the Abraham, Joseph, and Jeremiah videos Rotation folks like so much). This video is 90 minutes.
The Book of Esther by PureFlix Entertainment, 2012, 92 mins.
These videos have 'live' actors, more realistic, and more for an older audience.
