This is Episode 5 called “Brothers At War,” and it is about the decedents of Abraham. It starts off with the birth of Isaac. It is a joyous occasion for the family, until God’s great challenge to Abraham. God tells him he must kill the boy, for it is His word. Really it is a test of Abraham’s faith, and when he passes this test, God makes a promise to him – that Isaac will go on to lead a great nation, and his descendants will be God’s people.
The story of Abraham’s son Isaac is an important one for kids to understand. Isaac’s descendants became the Israelites, the chosen people of God, and they went all over the world spreading His word.
In this episode, we see the meeting of Isaac and Rebecah, and the birth of their two boys, Jacob and Esau. The story of Jacob and Esau is about sibling rivalry, an issue most of our kids know about well enough. Jacob and Rebecah trick Isaac, and it leads to more than just a quarrel between brothers. This story gives the disc its title, “Brothers At War.”
The important lesson in all of this is that brothers are brothers, and when it comes down to it we must forgive each other. Here, the story is told with action and suspense, and realistic characters that your kids will get to know and enjoy.
In addition to the story, some of the memorable scenes in this episode include Hagar and Ishmaels flight through the desert where God makes water spring from the ground, and Jacob’s all night wrestling match with God Himself!
