125. Rocky and the Bible story of Jesus the calming of the storm - Gospel Magic

Introduction:
We are always looking for new ways to tell Bible stories. One of these ways is through the use of Rocky the spring puppet. 

Rocky is very easy to bring him to life. Spring animals are puppets that consist of a large spring covered with fur. You hold the spring raccoon in one hand, moving the head with your thumb and first finger. It gives the animal a very realistic effect, and it's not uncommon for people to mistake it for a live animal!

Rocky is ideal to use to tell the following Bible stories: 

the four friends bringing their paralysed friend to Jesus
Jesus calms the storm on the lake
Noah and the animals in the ark

In the video below we will show you how you use Rocky and the ZigZag trick to tell the Bible story of Jesus calming the storm. 

Themes: 
Jesus calming the storm, trusting in God, God's love, the humanity of Jesus, Jesus is Creator God, Jesus demonstrates his power
