B-TV presents various skits, stories, and clips to portray the importance of grace and how it applies to our everyday lives.
A modernized version of the prodigal son joins free hot dogs and lemonade to teach the B-TV viewers an eye-opening lesson about getting the good stuff we don’t deserve.
- What does the Bible mean when it talks about God’s grace? Can you, in your own words, define grace or describe what it is?
- Why were Bernard and Connie giving away free hot dogs and lemonade on the street in downtown Odyssey? What did this have to do with the theme of the program?
- Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” What does this mean?
- This episode was dropped from the album "Album 34: In Your Wildest Dreams" and all subsequent airings because the the team felt the Amish skit was too offensive to some listeners:
- The Amish characters speak with a goofy accent.
- The main character is portrayed as dim-witted.
- Jokes are made about Amish clothes and horse-and-buggies.
