THEO: GOD'S LOVE
Theo Presents is centered around the adventures and teachings of the main character, Theo, a student of God's Word. Theo lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and entertains two mice, Belfry and Luther. The animation series guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, God's character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.
“The most important thing I want children to know after Theo is number one, God loves them and number two, that He wants a personal relationship with them through His Son Jesus Christ, and thirdly and very importantly, I want children to know what they believe and why they believe it” – Michael Joens, Theo’s creator.

Episode 1 - Saving Faith:
Theo, a kind English theologian, teaches what it means to have genuine, or “saving” faith. Theo shares the story of Abraham to illustrate the life of a man who trusted the promises of God and walked by faith. Just as the Lord promised Abraham a son and fulfilled His promise, He promised a Savior to us. And sent Jesus into the world at just the right time.
Episode 2 - Loving Obedience:
If we love God, we will obey Him. Luther and Belfry, two field mice that have befriended Theo, lack obedience and get into trouble wherever they go. Children will learn a valuable lesson and be entertained at the same time as Theo uses the story of Jonah to illustrate the consequences of disobedience, and the blessings that come when we love God through doing what He asks of us.
Episode 3 - Forgiveness:
Nothing is more basic to the Gospel than forgiveness. However, learning to forgive is not easy for Theo’s furry friends Luther and Belfry. In this episode, Theo teaches the important lesson of forgiving others through the parable of the “Unforgiving Servant”.
The Good News: Theo explains sin, the need for salvation, and the way God has provided through His Son Jesus Christ.
