Editorial Reviews

Dark times befall Ben the Baker, leader and storykeeper of a valiant group of Christians, along with his wife Helena and their band of adopted children, as the roman Emperor Nero tightens his brutal grip on the city. A daring escape from the roman soldiers leaves Ben's and his family homeless, and they shelter in the catacombs. There Ben's stories of the last days of Jesus and his resurrection give new hope and strength. When Ben is betrayed, it is young Justin who must carry on the storykeeper tradition by keeping alive this most wonderful of stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have video!!! April 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is taken from the gospel of John which I grew up knowing. Most children's Easter videos I have seen have been from Luke. It is nice to see a different version of the story. The way they use the story keepers is great!! My six year old twins loved it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Christian Family DVD Library February 25, 2006
By Jules
I purchased the entire Story Keepers DVD collection when our son was born. I'd seen a preview of the collection on a TV infomercial and was impressed with the engaging cartoons. Our son is now four years old and he absolutely loves the stories and characters in these wonderful animated Christian DVDs.

The adventures take place in Rome 64 AD. The main characters are a group of children left orphaned during Nero's cruel persecution of Jerusalem. The kids are taken in by the kind baker Ben and his loving wife, Helena. Meeting with other Christians in secret, they tell the stories of fellow believers. They strive to keep alive the stories of Jesus and they become known as The Story Keepers.

These stories are fast paced, nicely narrated, and very engaging. The animation is adequately done, though not on a caliber with Disney or the large animation studios. The backgrounds are more elaborate and much better than the character illustration which is rather plain.

However, the quality of the stories and the endearing characterizations more than make up for the average animation. As a Christian parent you'll feel confident in sharing these DVDs with your children.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best easter video available today February 9, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the best videos our family has ever seen. We watch it over and over, and neither the children (or the adults) ever grow tired of seeing it again. Action, adventure, truth, great music..... this is a must have for any family video collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Older Kids ONLY!!!! April 8, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Bought this for my four year old, thought it'd be a mild introduction to the whole Easter concept. Well, it's been weeks and he still has nightmares about the bad people killing Jesus (and himself, of course) on the cross. They show way too much for the little ones.
The whole idea behind this series is good, and this video would be fine for a much older child (they would probably follow the dual storylines much better anyway), but please don't subject your little ones to this one - unless you want to explain to the Sunday School teacher why he/she keeps crying and telling everyone that Jesus died. :(

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the Christian video library September 26, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is probably the best of all the Story Keepers videos. While there are many fine easter videos, few show the last days of Jesus as honestly and yet "child friendly". My five year old loves the video and watches it year 'round.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's three and he loves it! May 31, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
My son is three years old and has been asking almost every day since Easter for "the Jesus on the cross" movie. He loves it. It has replaced Peter Pan (which he received for Christmas) as his favorite movie. My daughter who is 5 enjoys it as well.

I like this Easter story. I have always liked the way the story keepers tell the stories to keep them alive in everyone's heart and spread the Gospel. Keep up the good work and Good News. I need to get more of the series now. :P)
