The Kingdom of Heaven

Synopsis: Jesus uses a series of short stories, parables, to help us learn about the Kingdom of Heaven and about how to live each day. Eternal life, faith, judgment, obedience and preparedness are the principles explored in this video. The Kingdom of Heaven begins with Jesus in the clouds and angels in the background. There are people from different times and different races looking into the clouds and seeing Jesus. Jesus begins to speak to the people about the Kingdom of Heaven and how the treatment of others is the same as actions toward Him. Slowly, Jesus' shining garment is traded for an earthly robe and He is preaching to a gathering of people. Two Pharisees watch and listen. Boaz, one of the Pharisees, is angered by what he hears Jesus saying and the other Jeremiah is intrigued. David and Sarah, brother and sister, listen also. Boaz says that all Jesus does is tell silly stories. Jeremiah tries to explain that perhaps Jesus wants everyone to discover the meaning from the stories. Sarah agr

When the Son of Man

shall come in His glory,

and all the holy angels with Him,

then shall He sit

upon the throne of His glory.

And before Him

shall be gathered all nations.

Then shall the King

say unto them on His right hand,

''Come, ye blessed of my Father,

inherit the Kingdom

prepared for you

from the foundation of the world.''

For I was an hungered,

and ye gave me meat.

I was thirsty,

and ye gave me drink.

I was a stranger,

and ye took me in.

Naked, and ye clothed me.

I was sick, and ye visited me.

I was in prison,

and ye came unto me.

Lord, when did I see

thee sick or in prison?

I've never fed thee

or gave thee drink, Master.

Neither have I, Lord.

I have never beheld

thy face until now.

Verily I say unto you,

inasmuch as ye have done it

unto one of the least of these,

ye have done it unto me.

Did you hear?

Did you hear?

Oh, quiet!

Surely, this man is wise.

I knew you'd think so.

Didn't I tell you, David?

How can you call him wise?!

He's done nothing but

tell silly stories...

sowers, seeds, mustard trees!

It's nonsense!


maybe he wants us to discover

the meaning for ourselves.

Or... or maybe not.

No, it's true.

His stories have a hidden meaning...

the secrets of

the Kingdom of Heaven.

If the secrets of the Kingdom

of Heaven are to be taught,

they will be taught by a Rabbi.

Shhh, quiet now.

Jesus is ready to preach.

He who hath ears to hear,

let him hear.

The Kingdom of Heaven is likened

unto a man who planted

a field of wheat.

But while he and

his servants slept

his enemy came and scattered

bad seeds among the wheat,

then went on his way.

And it came to pass that

when the wheat came forth,

there appeared tares also.

I don't know how this

could have happened, sir.

We planted good seeds.

I know we did.

It's not your fault, my friend.

An enemy has done this.

I'll pull up the tares, sir.


When you pull up the tares, you

may damage the wheat as well.

Let them grow together

until the harvest.

And at that time,

I will say to the reapers,

''Gather the tares together and

tie them in bundles to burn them.

Then gather the wheat, bind them together,

and store them into my barn.

I see! I see! The wheat are the

good people and the tares are...

Now you understand this nonsense as well?

I think I do.... I...

Well, I thought I did.

Don't you?

This man teaches blasphemy and wickedness!

Beware, all of you!

Come, Jeremiah!

I said, we're leaving, Jeremiah!

Come now, or you will be shut

out of the synagogue forever!

I'm coming. I'm coming.

You didn't actually want to stay, did you?

Of course not! It was just

so nice to be outside, that's all....

The fresh air and all.

He who hath ears to hear,

let him hear.

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven

is like unto a merchant man,

seeking goodly pearls.

( song)

All that I have, I'll sell all that I have

to hold in my hand the pearl.

Nothing I have can compare with the prize

when I hold in my hand the pearl.

Brighter than sun, clearer than glass,

dearer than gold... the pearl.

Kingdom of God, it's the Kingdom of God,

it's life with my Lord... the pearl.

All that I have is ashes, is earth,

now that I've seen the pearl.

And I will not rest; I cannot be content

'til at last it is mine, forever to shine,

the Kingdom of God... the pearl.

Let me gather everything I own,

all that in this dreary world I've known.

Pleasures and possessions now I bring...

trade them for one single shining thing.

All that I have is ashes, is earth,

now that I've seen the pearl.

And I will not rest, I cannot be content

'til at last it is mine, forever to shine,

the Kingdom of God... the pearl. ( end song)

I... I must be going.

But, David, He's not finished.

I don't want to hear anymore.

David, what's wrong?

Give up all I have?!

That's what He's saying.

That I must give up

everything and follow Him!

David, you know He

teaches the truth.

I have worked too hard, Sarah.

It's taken ten long years.

My work... my work is my life!

Is it worth more

than the Kingdom of Heaven?

... for many are called,

but few are chosen.

I... I can't.

He who hath ears to hear,

let him hear.

Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven

be likened unto ten maidens,

five of them were wise,

and five were foolish.

So what, Leah.

So we forgot oil for our lamps.

It doesn't matter!

I don't know why you

made us bring them anyhow.

We don't need them

in the broad daylight!

I told you,

sometimes the bridegroom

doesn't arrive until very late.


You worry too much, Leah.

It'll be all right.

We'll leave for the

wedding at sundown.


That's a bit late, isn't it?

I want to make sure that everyone

has a chance to get there.

Well, you needn't worry

about that, Judah.

The entire city is waiting to

accompany you to the wedding.

Do you think we

could have missed him?

How could we have?

We've been here all day.

I don't know about you,

but I'm getting some rest!

Wake us up when he arrives, Leah.

Master Judah arrives!

Master Judah arrives!

Fall in line

for the wedding party!

Master Judah arrives!

Fall in line for the wedding

party! Master Judah arrives...


He's here!

Fall in line

for the wedding party!

Fall in line!

Master Judah arrives!

Master Judah arrives...

Fall in line

for the wedding party...

Master Judah arrives!

Master Judah arrives!

Fall in line for the wedding party!

Fall in line for the wedding party!

Master Judah arrives!

Master Judah arrives!

Fall in line for the wedding party!

Master Judah arrives!

Master... Judah arrives...

Master... Judah... arrives

Fall in line for the wedding party.

Master Judah arrives.

Fall in line for the wedding party.

Oh, we've been around this part of

the city several times, Judah, sir.

Are you sure everyone's

had a chance to hear?

I should think so!

I... I don't want

to leave anyone behind.

Master Judah arrives!

Oh, no, no, no, no, no!

We've given ample warning.

Alright, then.

Now on to the wedding.

Master Judah arrives! Fall in

line for the wedding party!

Master Judah arrives!

He's arrived!

Quick, the wedding

party is passing!

Wait! Wait for us!

Come here!

Give us some of your oil! We can't see!

But, then we'll all run out.

Leah, hurry up! Come here!

I'm sorry, Simone.

I want to help you, but...

but if we don't leave now,

we'll all miss the wedding.

We'll knock on these doors!

Try to buy some! Hurry!

Let us begin.

Oh God, we come before thee...

Judah... Judah!

Who calls?

Your friends! Your friends?!

Do I know you? Hold up your lamps

so I can see your faces.

Well, we have no oil.

Our light has gone out.

If you are my friends, why didn't

you come when I called?

Come Judah, it's time to begin.

I'm... I'm sorry, I know you not.

Watch therefore, for ye know

neither the day nor the hour

wherein the Son of Man cometh.

Come again tomorrow.

You can hear Jesus teach then.

Master, why do you speak

to the people in parables?
