This movie is for both children and adults. Its main target audience is children. It’s a story about Jesus Christ being the true sacrificial lamb for people’s sins. Some world religions today still sacrifice animals as a sin offering. Many world religions for several thousands of years since the time of Creation would sacrifice animals as a sin offering. Christianity has been preached around the world for nearly 2,000 years. People that converted to Christianity over the many centuries stopped sacrificing animals as a sin offering since Jesus Christ became the once and only true sacrificial lamb for all time.
“When Judah is taken by the townspeople as a sacrificial lamb, his new zany barnyard friends from Bethlehem embark on an adventuresome journey to save him the week preceding the crucifixion of, The King. Will a lamb's heroic deed on an altar be enough to save the people-folk of their sins, once and for all? This daring quest will take you from the Bethlehem stable, into the Romans Courts passed the great temple, the hillside of Calvary, and onto the empty tomb, as The Stable-Mates come to the rescue! This epic heart-warming story intertwines humor and troublesome situations, while delivering foundational messages with gentleness and breathtaking beauty. For Judah, a lamb with the heart of a lion, it is a story of courage and faith that will lead you to the pivotal voyage of hope which started 30 years ago in Bethlehem, once upon a stable.”
