B-TV: Grace

“B-TV: Grace” is episode #439 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Jim Ware, and originally aired on March 18, 2000.


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.

Discussion Questions

  • 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.



Connie Kendall: Hot dog, Eugene?
Eugene Meltsner: Surely you jest! Uh, hold the mustard.

Eugene Meltsner: But Mr. Walton, are you or are you not familiar with the popular proverb, there's no such thing as a free lunch?
Bernard Walton: Yes, I think I've heard that somewhere before.
Eugene Meltsner: As a student of economics and a B-TV program consultant, I feel compelled to raise an unavoidable question. Who exactly is underwriting this frivolous media bash?
Connie Kendall: Translated, "Who's paying for all this?".
