Jesus told simple stories so everyone who heard them would understand the message. Host Jim Bergwall takes the seeds of these stories, digs into them and illustrates with hands-on teaching how "good fruit doesn't just happen."
In "Seeds," Jim explains that a seed can be dormant for days, weeks, even years before the conditions are right for it to sprout. Then it becomes the plant it was designed to be. In this episode, Jim conveys that, whether it is literal seeds or the Word of God, seeds contain LIFE!
As he digs further in "Dirt," Jim examines the various kinds of soil, bringing to life Jesus' Parable of the Sower. He visits a scientist, who reveals the ingredients necessary to produce good soil, which will nurture the seeds into healthy, life-giving plants.
What does it really mean to "bear fruit?" Jim Bergwall explains this Biblical principle using the fruit we eat as an example. Join him as he visits an orchard and shows how good fruit appeals to all five senses, it is nourishing and carries life. Using Scripture and hands-on teaching from a fruit-grower, Jim shows how good fruit is carefully tended, needs light and water and is pruned to make better fruit.
This series is a useful tool for family devotions, Sunday school, children's church, VBS, or for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of what it really means to Abide in the True Vine.

This is an EXCELLENT video. Jim has clearly considered the teachings of Christ and uses strong visuals to illustrate key Christian concepts. Simple, yet profound. Like our Master Himself.
