Video Recommendation: "Bread of Heaven" (Nest)

See my Video Workshop lesson plan that uses this DVD posted HERE in my four lesson set in this forum.

Forum renovation note:  

Many other previous posts in this forum also suggested "Bread of Heaven" DVD.

Here are some photos from our video lesson of Loaves & Fishes:  Jesus Feeds the 5000.  After watching the movie (Bread from Heaven from Nest), the lesson called for making "treat" bags to give to someone or an organization.  Our children made 25 treat bags for the homeless men that our church serves through the Room in the Inn program.  The children were most excited about decorating the cards for the men that went inside the bags!  This activity helped reinforce the memory verse for this lesson:  "I am the bread of life."  John 6:35

This video contains a very short object lesson and an animated version of the Feeding of the 5000 from the Gospel of John. Enjoy!

In John 6, Jesus is teaching 5000 hungry people.


Jesus broke bread and blessed it.


After the loaves and fishes were shared with 5000 people, there were still 12 baskets left over.
