The Power of Lego.

In recent years the Bible has been portrayed through many different mediums. The Bible is now available on CD, CD-Rom, DVD and video, but no other medium is as interesting, or as fun, as the Bible represented through Legos.
According to the website, The Brick Testament contains 268 stories with 3,048 illustrations. These stories and illustrations cover aspects of both the Old and New Testaments.
Here are some examples;

The Parting of the Red Sea:

Samson defeats 1,000 Philistines with the donkey of a jawbone*:

The Plank in Your Eye:

The Good News of the Empty Tomb!

The theology may not be the best, but you have to admit that this is a fun way to represent the stories of the Bible.

For the entire Brick Testament go here.

*I have to admit that I put this particular story up with an ulterior motive. When I was in high-school and attended weekly Youth Group, one of the things we liked to do was read the "Extreme Faith Bible" which had a picture of a guy skateboarding with his Bible on the cover. This story was probably the funniest one in there as Samson's song read something like this; 'With the jawbone of a donkey I killed one thousand men, I beat them with this jawbone over and over again.'
