The below videos are from The Bible Project, a group of Bible scholars and artists in Portland, Oregon. Here are a few suggestions to get the most out of these videos.
The God portrayed in the Bible isn’t easy to understand, but what if we could better understand what it is that we can’t understand? In this video, The Bible Project will explore the complex identity of God displayed in the storyline of the Bible, and (surprise!) it all leads to Jesus.
This video traces the idea of humans as co-rulers alongside God, who are commissioned to develop the world and its resources and take it into new horizons. How has this human vocation been compromised by our selfishness and evil, and how did Jesus open up a new way of being human through his life, death, and resurrection?
This is episode 1 of an ongoing series that explores the origins, content, and purpose of the Bible. Here you'll be introduced to a condensed history of how the Bible came into existence, and the different forms of the Bible in the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant Christian traditions.
Watch The Bible Project's overview video on the Old Testament, also known as the Hebrew Bible, or the TaNaK. This video breaks down the literary design of the entire Old Testament and its flow of thought.
Watch The Bible Project's overview video on the New Testament. This video breaks down the literary design of the entire New Testament and how it continues the story of the Hebrew Scriptures.
In this video, The Bible Project traces the origins of the word “gospel” and how it ties the story of the Old Testament together with the story of Jesus and his announcement of God’s kingdom. Jesus brought God’s rule and reign to the world in a very upside-down way, which is the best news you could ask for.
We hope it has been enjoyable and helpful in understanding the big story of the Bible. From here, we would encourage you to continue growing by taking additional steps forward. We have two specific opportunities we would like to offer to you.
