If you haven’t heard of the Bible Project, you really should check them out. They offer some of the best Bible teaching I’ve ever seen, and they package it in 5-10 minute chunks with the highest quality visuals, all available for free online. If you browse their site, you’ll find all sorts of videos, including the following:
- literary overviews for every book of the Bible
- thematic overviews of the books of Moses and the wisdom literature
- topical overviews of key Bible themes
On Sunday evenings, I’ve been reading straight through the Bible to my children. Whenever we hit a new book, we begin by watching the Bible Project’s overview for that book. My children (ages 2-10) and I all love the videos.
My church small group watched the videos overviewing Matthew before we began our study of that gospel this year.
The main reason I’m writing about the Bible Project today, however, is because they just kicked off a new series on how to read the Bible. The first video is called, simply, “What is the Bible?” It briefly and clearly explains “the origins, content, and purpose of the Bible.” It is a terrific start to what promises to be a great series.
