Lego's Brick Testament

Lego has come out with their depiction of the stories in the Bible through their building blocks known as the Brick Testament. Interestingly there are comedic, sexual and violent content:

(God created Adam)


(God breathes the breath of life into Adam)


(Adam and Eve learned from the dogs in Eden, hence we have the classic doggie-style)


(The building of the Tower of Babel)


(The massacre at Ai by Joshua and the Israelites)


(The massacre of 12,000 at Ai)


(King David staring at Bathseba)


(Massacre of humans by angels in Revelation)


(Angels dumping human corpses into the great wine press)


(The angels pressing wine outside the city)


(The wine came out)


(The Trinity: Son, Father and Holy Ghost)

Errr ... no, no, no, no, no.
My son was excited about finding this some time ago, I said, no way.

Hi Pearlie,

The bricks are cute and graphic. Somethings are better left to be imagined in our private brain than visually shown. :)

ya... imagination's wildness is far more creative than what the lego pieces can illustrate *grin*

The last picture is definitely the FUNNIEST! Goodness, I'm sure Holy Spirit must have been incensed to find himself looking like that. But I used to play Lego though. Can't find space big enough to spread out all those bricks. Haha ... maybe I should recommend the Sunday School superintendent to buy these sets for the Lower Kindy Group ...

And Lego God looks like a funky space astronaut in a red suit!! Hilarious! I think it was a mixture of space Lego series (for Lego God) and the castle Lego series (for Lego Jesus and Ghost) ...

Hi Pearlie,

Can u answer my question first before I answer yours since my question came earlier?

pearlie said...

Well, my question is less of a question than a statement :)

Seriously, I would be happy to expose my kids to nudity and so on even when they are young (e.g. 4 to 10 years old). When I was in the nude relaxing in a public open air jacuzzi in a nudist resort, a naked mother brought along her naked daughter (estimated her to be about 6 or 7 years old) and ask if they could share the jacuzzi with me.

I also prefer early sex education for kids, and exposing them to what the late Anthony Yeo called different types of families, such as single-parent families, homosexual families, polygamous families and so on.

But of course different families have different preferences in the way they want to educate their children. To each her/his own. No one single formula suits all.

Well, I suppose we have our own ideals and principles, as long as we can answer for what we do and what we hold on to. Bearing in mind also that the world is becoming more and more different from the time when we were kids. With wikipedia, who needs parents to explain the birds and the bees? Worse than that, with youtube, the kids can even get visual "education". What we parents now need is to stress even more on values and what is right and what is wrong.
