The Old Testament Video Challenge

Last week, we posted our Old Testament Video on the Slugs & Bugs facebook page, and it was a hit! This week, I thought it would be fun to post here (with the original ending) and see how quickly the Slugs & Bugs neighborhood could identify all the Old Testament references. Most of them are pretty obvious, but a few might make you flip open your Bibles!

Matt Cosby animated the song, and we had fun brainstorming and coming up with different scenes for the train cars. Leave a comment below identifying a reference, and on Wednesday (if all have been identified) we’ll pick one comment and send that person a free download of the video!

  1. Gaines and I both noticed the Lamentations illustration at the concert last week! You don’t normally hear about that…

    Lamentations 2:3-4
    [The Lord] has cut down in fierce anger
    all the might of Israel;
    he has withdrawn from them his right hand
    in the face of the enemy;
    he has burned like a flaming fire in Jacob,
    consuming all around.

    He has bent his bow like an enemy,
    with his right hand set like a foe;
    and he has killed all who were delightful in our eyes
    in the tent of the daughter of Zion;
    he has poured out his fury like fire.

    and Lamentations 4:11:
    The Lord gave full vent to his wrath;
    he poured out his hot anger,
    and he kindled a fire in Zion
    that consumed its foundations.

  2. I love the one from Habakkuk: “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19

  3. The winged sun made me smile! “But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall” (Malachi 4:2, ESV).

    1. just wanted to say that The creativity behind this video is soo awesome. Everything from David swinging the sling, to the cute lion on the train….and Lamentations in bones…. Love the entire thing….so fun to watch….almost goes too quickly though to enjoy the creativity in it. Just have to hit repeat! 🙂

  4. Psalm 98:5-6New International Version (NIV)

    5 make music to the Lord with the harp,
    with the harp and the sound of singing,
    6 with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
    shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

    Ecclesiastes 2:8
    I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts.(in particular the harp)

    Okay, it’s fun looking up some of these references…. 🙂

  5. I think I’m too late for the giveaway, but my kids (3 and 6) have almost completely learned the books of the Old Testament thanks to this catchy song – we love it!

  6. Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. 8 Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord.

    Haggai 1:7-8

  7. Zechariah 9:9 at the end. ..
    Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

  8. My family loves this album. We were just watching this Books of the Old Testament video, which is really amazing. However, Ezekiel is spelled with -iel not -ial; I’m not sure if that’s an easy fix, but it would be great.
