New DVD Set Brings Old Testament to Life

The Old Testament just became a lot more accessible.

In October, the Church released the Old Testament Visual Resource DVDs—a set of three DVDs containing more than 300 visual resources to assist members as they study the Old Testament.

The first two discs contain videos, interactive charts, quotations from latter-day apostles and prophets, and paintings that supplement the doctrines and events found in the Old Testament.

A scripture-study activity accompanies each visual resource and can be used for personal, family, or classroom study to help unlock understanding of the Old Testament.

The third DVD contains stories for children, based on the book, Old Testament Stories. People such as Joseph, Ruth, Elijah, Jonah, and Esther will come to life for children as they listen to the simple narrations and view the illustrations for each story.

Now available in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, the DVDs will become available in 25 other languages over the next year.

The set of Old Testament Visual Resource DVDs is $6.25 USD and is available through Church distribution centers and
