Next week I will open up the new September study, The Suffering Servant. I will also make it available through My EP. Parents, feel free to add a student block for yourself if you want to track your way through. These are month-long Bible studies on a topic. The previous years’ studies can be found on the September Studies page. Since these are geared for an older audience, I reached out to Mr. Phil (aka Bob the Tomato) and asked about a free month’s access to his Mr. Phil TV streaming channel for our younger kids, from older preschool up through elementary age.
They’ve generously offered us six-week free access to Mr. Phil TV. Your coupon code is ALLINONE and is good through the month of September. There are two series on there to choose from – What’s In The Bible? and The Mr. Phil Show.
What’s in the Bible? is 26 half-hour shows telling the stories of the Bible and connecting the overarching story. This is great for people new to the Bible, but for everyone as well for learning about the Bible. My family owns this series on DVD and we all enjoy it, though it’s aimed at elementary age kids.
The Mr. Phil Show is 20 (currently) twenty-minute episodes. The shows are repetitive in the beginning. My 9-year-old thinks it is funny, but my 11-year-old gets called in for the second half of the show. In that second half is a lesson from a historical character about things like what to do about a bully, how to know what God wants you to do, or how to pray when you are distracted. I tear up at every one. That’s followed by a Bible lesson, reading right from the Bible. (A little note: I flipped out at the second episode and turned it off because the question was if the Bible were true or a fairy tale, and the answer was both. I went back to check it out, and it was fine. It says the Bible is true, but that it’s like a fairy tale because it describes a world where there is more than meets the eye, wonder and miracles. I have seen almost all of them to check them out.)
There are 40 additional 9-minute Bible studies available like the ones found at the end of each episode. You can also search things like faith or sanctification and it will bring up videos that define it and talk about it.
Sign up for the free trial and enter your info and coupon code (ALLINONE) for a free month (so you get six weeks). If you haven’t finished the series, please consider signing up for another month or getting a year. I’d like to bless Mr. Phil for his generous offer of a free month for our EP users, so if it’s not a burden to you, please consider supporting his efforts to get Bible teaching out to kids. I love that he reads whole books of the Bible in the studies, instead of just little tidbit lessons.
Bible Study with Lee
I’m offering to meet on Fridays, 11 AM EST, to talk about the Suffering Servant study. Parents, families, and children 12 and up are welcome. You need to be doing the study and be up to date so we’re all talking about the same thing. The first one will be on September 9th. We’ll meet four times on Zoom. The link is in the Suffering Servant course and will be on the September Studies page.
