More Precious than Gold and The Evil Wizard
(2 animated stories on one tape)
More Precious Than Gold takes place on a merchant ship in ancient Israel.
Wealthy merchants on board boast of their fabulous goods while one poor elderly
passenger sits quietly and pours over his books; the scholar is ridiculed by the
others. One day pirates attack and plunder the ship. When the ship reaches its
port, only the old man receives a joyous welcome from the awaiting crowd. His
merchandiseó the learning he acquired- could never be stolen by robbers. It is
more precious than gold!
Long ago, in the Holy Land, a wise man was invited to teach
the local children. As the children march off happily to school, their joyous
song descends into the world of darkness and wakes up the demons. Satan, in the
guise of an evil wizard, attempts to frighten the children. The wise man,
however, believing in the ultimate power of goodness, unselfishness, and love,
uses this understanding to defeat the Evil Wizard.
Recommended for ages 4-10.
