It's a 23 year old VHS cassette tape. If you can still order it from your kingdom hall, that would be the best place. Some people are selling it on Amazon... ugh. You'd need a VCR, VHS to PC adapter. and a PC... or you can Google it and use another shady website to rip the video off of Vimeo. All not technically legal aside from possibly personal use or fair use commentary and parody... It may be good for personal study, but I don't recommend using it with students, it's likely not been made digital for a reason. There are newer videos that are much simpler and better reach the heart. The faithful and discreet slave provides spiritual food at the proper time.

It was recommended for use with bible students when considering chapter 2 of the book: "What does the bible really teach" and the recommendation is recent - a 2013 OKM article. Thanks

I apologize, feel free to ignore my overzealous obsession with trying to use the newest advancements in technology. I often speak without understanding and neglect older resources more than I should. I had seen that KM article, but assumed it was kind of outdated since it was made before JW Library was released in Oct 2013. Then came JW Broadcasting and Christian Life & Ministry. However, the current Life & Ministry still references that same article.  http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/202016204

I saw about 3 of that on YouTube. I wonder which is trustworthy. They all had different data sizes.

My bad indeed.. upon closer inspection of the DVD list, it should be in the "The Bible—A Book of Fact and Prophecy—On DVD (© 1992, 1993, 1996)" collection. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200276738

 

It says at the end of the list that full length DVDs have been discontinued. :( I had figured that was the case when we didn't get DVDs for the latest two movies we saw at the convention, altho I hoped for a time we might see DVDs a bit later at the counter in our Kingdom Halls. There reason is probably the cost to organize that, which would be quite significant, so it's completely understandable (especially since the movies are already available for us on JW broadcasting), but it is nice to be able to watch one of our Bible-based movies from our collection whenever we feel like it, while not worrying about Internet costs. I'll just download the movies. Problem solved ~ I have been wanting to see that one on King Hezekiah again! :)
