Lesson 4: Armor of God
In this episode, children are asked to name all the pieces of the armor of God. Can they do it? If not, then this lesson will help them be able to remember all the different elements. Theo teaches a lesson about what each of the pieces represents and how they can be implemented in daily life to fight against the enemy of our souls. In addition to that, Luther and Belfry encounter a sly and devious cat named Scratch. Their fight against this enemy requires them to use the most important kind of armor; the Armor of God! Throughout this episode, Theo details the importance of equipping yourself with Biblical knowledge and all the pieces of the armor of God. The enemy is out there, and we must be prepared!
Lesson 5: Redemption
In the second installment of Theo Vol 2: God's Grace, Theo focuses on the topic of redemption. The word redemption is actually an ancient word from the marketplace that literally means "to purchase something". Theo explains the concept of our Heavenly Father purchasing lost sinners through the death of his one and only son Jesus Christ. Redemption is illustrated when Luther and Belfry have another run in with Scratch, their cat enemy. Theo has to redeem his two little friends just in the nick of time with an unusual piece of money. Children will be taught the beautiful story of redemption through the lives of Theo, Luther, and Belfry.
Lesson 6: New Birth
In this final episode, Luther and Belfry overhear Theo using the phrase "born again". They become curious and decide to ask him what it means. They ask him what it means to be born again spiritually, and he is glad to explain to them the meaning of spiritual rebirth. The Bible says that, because of our sins, we are dead. However, through our faith in Jesus Christ we are made spiritually alive, or, as Theo said, "born again". In this episode, Theo uses the story of Jesus and Nicodemus to explain to kids what it means to be born again in spiritual terms.
Theo Vol 2: God's Grace not only has three ten minute lessons, but also includes many special features and fun bonus things. It includes a bonus lesson called "The Good News", which focuses on the message of Christ and the joyous news of the Gospel.
This special home edition DVD includes a special three week Bible study for parents to go through with their kids.

It also includes a sixteen page parent guide to help parents know how to reinforce the values taught in the DVDs. This series comes with nightly devotions and a calendar to help keep track of them.
