STORYKEEPERS – the outstanding modern video exposition of the gospels, drawn primarily from Mark & Luke (episodes 1 – 9) and from Mark’s Passion narrative (episodes 10 –13) – is now available in teaching resource format.

"The Storykeepers" is an animated video series created for children that tells the story of Ben the baker, and his wife Helena, who are Christians in Rome at the time of the Neronian persecutions (64 A.D.). Ben and Helena have adopted four children whose parents were lost during the fires set by Emperor Nero. The hope-giving stories and parables of Jesus are told in the course of their exciting adventures, including the passion narrative from the Gospel of Mark.

Non Churchgoing young people find the series exceptionally attractive. 46% of children (55 out of 120) attended a bible study party following a Marcus outreach
The series consists of 13 x half hours of animated television and covers 47 parables and stories of Jesus. (For a full list of texts click here.)

Broadcast in the UK on the national ITV Network Storykeepers took a 27% share of viewing audiences at 10.15am on Sundays (40% share of those aged 5 – 9).

In the US Storykeepers is regularly broadcast on EWTN and Hallmark channels.

Situated in Rome in AD64, the ‘Storykeepers’ are the band of assorted, ordinary Christians who realise the need for each generation to keep the stories of Jesus alive and to pass them on from one generation to another.

A practice as highly relevant today as it was then.
