volume 4 contains 10,11,12 and Theo volume 5 contains 14,15,16.
Lesson 14- Fruit of the Spirit
Luther demonstrates an “act of the flesh” as he bashes his thumb in the
episode opener. More bad behavior follows as he covets Belfry's cheese,
giving Theo an opportunity to teach a lesson on the Fruit of the
Spirit. He begins by illustrating some “humorous” acts of the flesh
that humans often engage in, then he describes each of the spiritual
fruits in the Shoebox Bible Theatre––love, joy, peace, and so on.
Luther and Belfry think they've learned the lesson, until they try to
outdo each other with acts of “kindness.”
Lesson 15- Salvation
Scratch the cat is at it again, chasing Luther and Belfry. The
mice escape onto a log in the river and think they've escaped danger
until, plunging into the water, they are pursued by an even greater
danger––a monstrous fish! A nail-biting chase ensues, where it's
certain the mice are goners. In desperation they cry out for Theo to
save them, which he does, and uses the occasion to teach about
Salvation. In the Shoebox Bible Theatre section Theo takes us on a
journey along the “Romans Road,” where we learn how to be saved.
Lesson 16- Love Thy Neighbor
Luther and Belfry are happily enjoying their lunch when they are
surprised by a food thief––a mangy river rat named R.W. Wigglesworth,
Esq. The mice don't like river rats, because they carry...fleas!
Theo tells them that they should love their neighbor, even though we
may not get along with them. Yes, even rats! Using Jesus' parable of
the Good Samaritan, he shows us who our neighbor is, and how we ought to
love them as Jesus loves us. Belfry takes the lesson to heart and
gives Wigglesworth some of his cheese, an act of kindness that brings
two enemies together in true friendship.
