Giveaway: “Lion of Judah”

posted by Nell Minow

A lamb with the courage of a lion named Judah and his friends from a Bethlehem stable go on a journey in the week before the Crucifixion in this animated film with the voices of Ernest Borgnine and Bruce Marchiano.  It is the Easter story as seen through the eyes of a lovable pig (Horace), a faint-hearted horse (Monty), a pedantic rat (Slink), a rambling rooster (Drake), a motherly cow (Esmay) and a downtrodden donkey (Jack).

Judah and his friends go on an adventure that takes them past the great temple, onto the hillside of Calvary, and to the empty tomb, as their journey takes them through the biblical accounts of Palm Sunday, Jesus turning the tables in the temple, Peter’s denial and the resurrection.

I have three copies to give away!  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Judah” in the subject line and tell me your favorite sign of spring.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I’ll pick three winners at random on March 28.  Good luck!
