Veggie Tales: Josh and the Big Wall!


Oh, boy! After 40 years of wandering in the desert, the children of Israel finally get to go to the Promised Land! Only one little thing they’ve overlooked, though…Jericho! Surrounded by huge walls and bristling with really annoying peas, no one gets to the Promised Land without going through Jericho first! But how? Joshua has God’s directions, but they sound kind of…well, weird. To make matters worse, some of the Veggies are cooking up a plan of their own! In the end, they have to decide whether they should do things their way or God’s way. Kids of all ages will learn a lesson about obedience in this hilarious retelling of the classic Bible story – “Josh and the Big Wall!”

Dove Review

Join Bob the Tomato and Junior Asparagus, as they use their imagination to tell the story of the Israelites and Joshua from the Bible. The Israelites proceed to walk around the wall of Jericho to knock it down. They fight to listen to God’s direction instead of their own, and kids witness their strong temptation. The clear lesson in this film is that sometimes God’s direction doesn’t make sense to us, but it is always the right direction. These brightly colored vegetables, the cool animations and still images will make kids smile as the story unfolds.

They will enjoy “Silly Songs with Larry,” as he encourages them to sing along and tap their feet. Enjoy this high energy story with the whole family. It earns the Dove Faith Friendly Seal.
