    40: A Video for Lent



    A video version of UK artist Simon Smith's depiction of Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness. Very cool and very accessible for young people (and the depiction of Satan is a nice surprise!) You can download the individual images here.

    Okay, when the video hit the end with "And now I'm back", I lost it. I admit it, I lost it. Thank You for coming back!

    Never put much thought into what it must of been like for those long 40 days...

    That was powerful... especially with no words!

    Ashleigh, there are a variety of options on the web for downloading these videos. Just go to Google and search for "download you tube video." One option is www.videodownloadr.com. Once you download the video, you will need to also download a free flv player to play it on (though it will already by playable for Ipod type devices.) The flv player I use is here: www.videolan.org/vlc/. Another option is to paste the url of the video into this site: http://vixy.net/.

    hi - i drew the images here - thanks for all your kind words about them!
    a good place to get ahold of them is at www.proost.co.uk where you can buy them as a downloadable movie for £1.99 [not sure what that is in dollars but either way it's a bargain!]
    if you visit the site there have a good browse around as there is some fantastic stuff available - i'd highly recommend jon birch's twelve stations movie for starters...
    thanks again!

    Si, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Your images are very popular! And thanks for the tip about the video version at Proost. I've bought numerous creative resources at that site, including your similar group of images and resources for Advent (which I would highly recommend everyone go grab at the Proost site!). Peace,
