Storyline

The video begins with a moving song which tells us that our "hands are the Lord's hands", and asks for His help for living in peace with our neighbors. Suddenly, we are in a room with Jesus and His Disciples. He tells them that many people have desired salvation. In a corner of the room, two men are in deep discussion. One of them, a lawyer, challenges Jesus to tell him what is to be done to inherit eternal life. Jesus tells the story of a man who needed to travel a dangerous road to Jericho to buy spices. We are transported by Jesus' words to a wayside inn. The innkeeper's young son overhears two robbers plotting to steal from people on the road. The scene shifts to the home of Jewish spice merchant. His wife worries about his trip to Jericho. But he must make the journey, so he bids his family farewell. On a isolated, mountainous road, the two robbers hide among the rocks. Soon the spice merchant comes into view. The robbers steal his gold and leave him for dead on the deserted road... Written by Nest Family Entertainment

Wow, I totally forgot about this!
9 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, well, well! Goodness gracious! I think I watched this 12 or 13 years ago! Wow, it's funny that I should run across it now while searching Orson Scott Card's writing credits (he has one on this film).

What can I say about this movie? I watched it forever ago. I don't remember what the movie was like. All I remember, though, was that I really liked it when I watched it because I liked feeling sad for the man who got hurt on the way to Jerusalem. Even back then as a six-year-old I liked the really sad films! Can I recommend this film to you? I have no idea. I seemed to like it as a kid, though I never watched it more than once and I didn't dwell on it. But I have no idea about its cinematic merits. Maybe your kids will like it, maybe they won't. To be honest, I'm writing this review merely because I love myself a trip down memory lane.
