Greatest Heroes of the Bible (1978 – Boxed Set)


Anthology of famous events of the Old Testament.

Dove Review

The Bible’s Old Testament tells of many events, sacrifices and people who obeyed God’s Word. This boxed-set DVD series brings to life many of those amazing stories using a variety of recognizable movie stars. This collection is fascinating as the tales of Joshua, Moses, Daniel, Noah and Jacob come to life, along with many more. There are also stories of the Ten Commandments, Tower of Babel, Sodom and Gomorrah, plus Esther, Samson and Delilah.

The stories reveal the many times the Hebrew people were persecuted by those who did not believe in the One True God. But the Lord proved that He was there for His people. Whether it was David fighting a giant, the great walls of Jericho, or obeying the rules that God had set before His people, the stories are all portrayed in a unforgettable collection of films each an hour or less in length.

This set of Biblical stories is a wonderful collection based on a TV series created in 1978. They are simple movies with performances that reflect that era. We award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages, however, younger children would probably prefer an animated version of these stories.
