Veggie Tales: Josh and the Big Wall DVD
Veggie Tales: Josh and the Big Wall is a delightful animated classic that kids of all ages will enjoy. Focusing on the Bible story of Joshua and the Wall of Jericho, this movie presents Biblical themes in a positive and entertaining manner for kids. The Israelites, once held as slaves in Egypt, have been freed by Moses and led to the Promised Land. However, they are banished from this land for forty years because they doubted God's method and tried to do things on their own. When their exile is over, Moses has died and Joshua (Larry the cucumber) is made their new leader. He intends to lead them back to the Promised Land, but the Wall of Jericho stands in their way.
Here, the Israelites face the defenders of the Wall (the French Peas). The peas taunt them incessantly from the top of the city walls. Joshua tries to explain to them that God has set the Promised Land apart for them and that they will have to let them through. This causes the peas to become even more insulting and hurl taunts at them. When things escalate and a slushy lands on one of their heads, Joshua decides that they need to regroup and come up with a plan of action.
That night, Joshua is met by the Army of the Lord's commander who informs him how the Israelites are going to conquer Jericho. Their orders are to march around the city once a day for six days and on the seventh day, march around it seven times, blow their horns, and shout in unison. The messenger reveals to Joshua that when they do this, the walls of Jericho will fall down, granting them passage into the Promised Land.
The next morning, Joshua reports this to his people, but is met with protest. They all have ideas of their own that they think will work best. Once again, they are questioning God's methods. Pa Grape wishes to return to Egypt and Jimmy and Jerry have made plans to attack the wall with a giant rocket of their own invention. After Joshua gives them guidance, they eventually decide that it is wise to do as God has instructed them. They proceed to Jericho and begin their first march around the city.
While they are marching, they are met with opposition from the defenders of the Wall. Insults are hurled at them, and the peas make their taunts into a choreographed musical number. Things begin to escalate when the peas begin to throw slushies at the Israelites, forcing them to retreat. At the end of this first day, the Israelites are greatly discouraged and wish to give up on their mission. Joshua, however, refuses to let them quit, insisting that they complete the mission God has given them. The people begin to complain and get angry with Joshua for making them do this. At this point, Junior, one of the Israelites, intervenes and convinces them to continue with the plan. He knows that God's way is always the best way and points this out to the people. They agree to try again and to not give up on the mission before them.
They are faced with more devastating taunts and horrifying slushy attacks, but they persevere with their mission, just as God would want them to. On the seventh day, they march around the city seven times, though they are desperately tired. They also blow their horns and begin to shout as they have been commanded. At first, nothing appears to be happening, and the French peas hurl insults and taunts at them again. The Israelite people are discouraged, but Josh refuses to believe that nothing is going to happen. Suddenly, the walls begin to shake and then they all fall down, just as God promised. The Israelites cheer and are amazed by God's faithfulness. They continue on into the promise land, learning the valuable lesson that we shouldn't doubt God. In the end, his methods are always best and we should not doubt that he will do what he says he can do. God is who he says he is, and the deliverance of the Israelites is a great example of his faithful nature.
