The Lion of Judah


When Judah is taken by the townspeople as a sacrifical lamb, his new zany barnyard friends from Bethlehem embark on an adventuresome journey to save him the week preceding the crucifixion of, “The King”. Will a lamb’s heroic deed on an altar be enough to save the peope-folk of their sins, once and for all? This daring quest will take you from the Bethlehem stable, into the Roman’s Courts, passed the Great Temple, the hillside of Calvary, and onto the empty tomb, as The Stable-Mates come to the rescue!

This epic heart-warming story interwines humor and troublesome situations, while delievering foundational messages with gentleness and breath-taking beauty. For Judah, a lamb with the heart of a lion, it is a story of courage and faith that will lead you to the pivotal voyage of hope, which started 30 years ago in Bethlehem, once upon a stable.

Dove Review

Animated Family Films presents this wonderful adventure of animal friends that go to Jerusalem to save the little lamb name Judah, who thinks he is a lion. As these animals make the journey and begin the search, you will laugh at the situations they find themselves in. But as they realize that there is only one person that can help them save Judah, there is nothing that prepares them for what they discover in their search for the the King.

This DVD features the Easter story though the eyes of the animals that were there at the stable in the beginning. It is a cute comical animated film that the entire family will enjoy for years to come. We award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to ‘The Lion of Judah”.
