These stories have been brought to life in two beautifully animated films that you and your family can enjoy together.
Samson and Delilah
Samson is one of the greatest heroes of the Old Testament. His legendary feats of strength have inspired children and adults alike. But Samson and Delilah is not just an adventure story. It is a reminder that all men and women – no matter how great they may be – must abide by the will of God. It is clear from the very beginning of the story that Samson is destined for greatness. And as he grows, he proves to be the strongest man in all the land. But when he falls in love with a deceptive woman named Delilah, his fortunes change. With Delilah’s help, Samson’s enemies capture him – and it appears that he will spend the rest of his days as their prisoner. But in one final act of courage and faith, Samson redeems himself – and becomes a hero to his people once again.
Sodom and Gomorah
Throughout the Old Testament, God demonstrates His willingness to punish sinners. Indeed, on several occasions, He destroys entire populations because they have turned their backs on Him. But always, He manages to find one good man who will carry on and set an example for the rest of humanity. Abraham was such a man. And he is the central character in the powerful story of Sodom and Gomorrah. As the story opens, Ahaham (or Abram, as he is initially called) is mere teenager. But as he grows into manhood, it becomes clear that God has important plans for him. "You are a righteous man," God says. "Therefore I will make your descendants into a great nation. Go, therefore, to the land I will show you." Abraham obeys and brings his wife Sarah along with him. In the course of their journeys, Abraham and Sarah experience many difficulties. They witness the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and in the process learn an important lesson about God’s wrath. Many years later, Abraham faces the greatest test of all. He must make a choice between his love for God and his love for his only son. The story ends happily, of course. But in the process, it conveys an important message about the power of faith.
