Why didn't you show the angel moving the stone in front of the tomb? The Bible tells us, Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it (Matthew 28:2 NLT).
We used creative license to focus on the main points of the soldier's memory, that is, that a mighty angel appeared and that afterward the body of Jesus was gone.
What was the punishment for Roman soldiers who fell asleep while on guard?
The soldiers would have faced severe punishment, perhaps even death.
I thought Chris was a soccer all-star, so why weren't the kids in Belize impressed with his skills?
As Chris shared later in the episode, he was nervous when he first spoke to the kids about Jesus. As a result, he wasn't juggling the ball as well as he could have.
Why did Superbook take Joy to a different place than Chris and Gizmo?
Superbook had different things for Joy and Chris to experience and learn.
How do you know that Thomas had a twin brother?
This is revealed in the Bible in a number of modern translations. For example, the New Living Translation tells us, Thomas, nicknamed the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let's go, too—and die with Jesus" (John 11:16 NLT).
Why did the two men not recognize Jesus, but later on they suddenly recognized Him?
The Bible tells us that at first God kept the men from recognizing Him: But God kept them from recognizing him (Luke 24:16 NLT). Later, God allowed them to recognize who He was: Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! (Luke 24:31 NLT)
Since God kept them from recognizing Jesus, why did you show Jesus with a hood and the sun shining in the men's eyes?
We used creative license to help kids understand that the two men (and Joy) did not recognize Jesus at first. Without a visual cue of some sort, children watching could be confused about why these followers of Jesus did not recognize Him.
Also, we wanted kids watching the show to not know it was Jesus until the two men realized it was Him. This way, the kids would feel the same kind of surprise that the two men felt.
How did Jesus disappear when the two men recognized Him, and how did He suddenly appear to the larger group of disciples in the house?
After the Resurrection, Jesus apparently had a new kind of body that enabled Him to appear and disappear at will.
