TORONTO, March 1 /Christian Newswire
/ -- In advance of releasing At Jesus' Side, an all-new animated family DVD that makes the teachings of Jesus and messages of Easter more accessible to children, Phase 4 Films has created an exclusive At Jesus' Side Sunday School Kit for teachers and parents to share with children.
The Sunday School Kit, featuring coloring sheets of scenes from the movie, as well as other Christian-themed activities, is available at www.AtJesusSideMovie.com
"Too often the presentations of Jesus' life and love are overwhelmed with theological 'weight,' especially for a young audience, and they fail to deliver an accessible experience with Christ," said Patrick Wells, producer of At Jesus' Side. "At Jesus' Side uses the compelling tale of five animal friends to present a biblically accurate story of Jesus' sacrifice and our redemption through his resurrection."
At Jesus' Side follows the lives of five misfit animals who have a chance encounter with Jesus. This meeting with Christ alters their lives forever. The film's hero, Jericho, a vagabond street dog, befriends Jesus and follows him during the last week of his life, remaining at his side through The Resurrection.
Jericho is troubled by his past, but Jesus helps him understand how to love our enemies and to forgive those who have done us harm in the past. Jericho's grief at the Crucifixion becomes joyous celebration at witnessing the Resurrection, the greatest miracle of the Christian faith.
At Jesus' Side brings the teachings of Jesus to life for today's families through the story of these five friends on their journey of redemption. At Jesus' Side premieres on DVD March 16, 2010 in stores nationwide for $14.99 (SRP), just in time for Easter.
At Jesus' Side is Dove Family Approved for All Ages.
