In this fun and moving retelling of a treasured scripture story, a modern-day girl named Amelia learns a valuable lesson on integrity through the courage of Alma. When Amelia is teased because her family is taking the missionary discussions, she learns from Alma – as he defends Abinadi against King Noah – to have the faith to stand up for what is right. In this story, Alma (Dallyn Vail Bayles) is faced with the decision of approaching King Noah (Frank Gerrish) and his wicked priests, or risking his live by standing up for the prophet Abinadi (Ken Eklof).

While this episode is not my favorite it definitely has an important place in my home. The transformation of Alma from a priest of the wicked King Noah to a righteous prophet of the Lord is amazing. I also especially like the scene where we fade from the converts at the waters of Mormon to Amelia in her own baptism. I think the Lightstone crew should be commended for bringing such a positive light to such a dark part of the Book of Mormon (following only the complete destruction of the Nephite people and the slaughter of converts in Ammonihah). I think it's also an important lesson that sometimes evil has an attractive face.

I was very disappointed with thie episode. We are big Liken fans and own all of the DVDs. We were so excited for Episode 4 but when we watched it today I was so sad. The music was not half as good as it normally is and I just couldn't get into the story.
Good Movie, great Spirit

My children loved this, just as much as the other 3. I thought that Abinadi was so good, such power! The death of Abinadi was very tastefuly and kid friendly. If I was to complain it would be the song my kids are singing (an me too) are the ones that are the 'bad guy songs'. In the others, the catchy songs were good songs (Like 'I am DAVID').

Although not the best of the series, it still is a classic. I have found that with most of the DVDs once you watch them a few times and get to know the songs that you enjoy them even more. I love you guys for making these, it makes being a member all the more enjoyable.
Ken Eklof steals the show!!!!

I had difficult time enjoying this movie because it seems the most appealing music for children is the parts for the bad guys. After watching several times though the message of the Abinadi character comes to mean more and more, until finally I didn't feel the effects of the more worldly/Hollywood music and behavior. I also enjoyed Alma and the 'modern' story. I know children and even parents must overcome many difficulties when they are 'good' Saints. That message comes out if you watch closely. Thanks LIKEN for making these movies to remind us who we are and what we might become if we keep the commandments and endure to the end.
WOW! Don't miss this one!

WOW! All I can say is wow. This film was our first movie of Liken the Scriptures, and I have to say I can't wait to see shows

Considering how our hearts were touched by Liken's 'Alma and King Noah's Court' DVD, we were surprised and saddened by some of the negative response that has been expressed. A few have said that the film was not entertaining enough--not funny enough. Many scripture stories may be adapted with humor. But the testimony and martyrdom of Abinadi and the conversion and ministry of Alma have messages that exceed the value of light entertainment. For my family, this version of one of our favorite Book of Mormon stories brought deep, heart-felt smiles of the Spirit with sweet tears of testimony. How sad it would be if the producers of the Liken series skipped over the deeper messages in the scriptures to focus solely on entertainment value. And wouldn't it be sadder still if parents consistently put too much value on light humor? , We have immensely enjoyed all of the 'Liken the Scriptures' videos, but we truly felt that 'Alma and King Noah's Court' was exceptional. The Liken producers are growing and progressing in their ability to inspire children of all ages to have a love and appreciation for the scriptures. We thank them for their talent and hard work and wish them continuing success.
Complete your set and learn something, but don't expect too much

I am giving all the Liken movies at least 3 stars because I think they are a great way for my children, my wife and I too learn about the scriptures but this particular episode was not as good as the others. My children seldom put it in to watch compared to the others. They play David and Goliath the most along with I will go and do. Alma has a song by King Noah that just really wasn't enjoyable. Also, as incredibly funny as Michael B can be, he shouldn't be singing any more than King Noah or I should be. We have all the liken videos and can't wait for the next one. If I had seen this one at a friends before buying it I would have bought it anyway because it is such a great tool for children on Sunday and to complete the set.

When they go from King Noah's court to a disco dance, you have to think of the word "cheesy" but if the choice is between this and a tv cartoon, then stick to cheesy. They will at least learn something.
WE WANT MORE!

MORE LIKEN! This is what we need. My family loves all the liken movies. Why aren't there more films being made? Where is Jonah?
