Here is something that I am so excited to share with you. We received the Drive Thru History® - "The Gospels" (special edition, $89.95), for review purposes recently. We LOVE Drive Thru History®, and have a small collection of them that my family truly enjoys watching.
We were introduced to Drive Thru History® several years ago, and all 6 of my children like Dave Stott's teaching style. He is informative, without going so far above your head. He also makes learning fun. Yes, he is a little goofy at times, but by using this he holds your child's attention as they learn. Before you ask, yes, he teaches history thru a biblical perspective. These DVDs are perfect for homeschooling families, although I recommend them to everyone. Recommended for 5th grade to adult, they are probably many slightly younger children who would still enjoy these DVDs.
You could easily use The Gospels from Drive Thru History® as homeschool curriculum, as Sunday School material, even for family devotions. There is study guide built right inside the DVD case to use with the DVD lessons. In the guide there is a short summary of the lesson, followed by about 5 questions for discussion. These questions do not have an answer page, as they are to encourage discussion and to think and study more about what you have learned. There is also a passage or two of scripture to be read on your own or together as a family or group, to encourage learning about the life of Christ. There are 18 segments, each 30 minutes long. Below is a list of the different lessons.

Episode 4: Jesus Grows Up
Episode 5: Jesus Starts His Ministry

Dave Stotts enjoys teaching history and does a great job of teaching in a manner that holds the listener's attention. This set is approx. nine hours long and contains some truly beautiful scenery as you learn more about the archaeology, geography, ancient art and see some of the actually sites where Jesus traveled and taught.
Somehow my children never tire of watching these programs. They have watched several of our previous purchases over and over again, and I am pretty sure they will do the same with these.
Here is where you can locate them on their social media:
