For those wanting to make the Bible and its stories more real, there's nothing more enjoyable and compelling than to put together some period costumes in order to create a realistic portrayal of what happened in days of old.
Whether it's for adults or children, many times visual effects are the best way for someone to learn, and it definitely is all the time for certain people.
