Resource: “The Bible Project” Animated Videos

The Bible Project (www.thebibleproject.com) is a unique and valuable internet resource I greatly enjoy and regularly use for personal study. The project began in 2014 when Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins wanted to present the overall story, themes, and beauty of the Bible in a way that would connect with our modern media-centric culture.

Eventually they assembled an entire animation studio which is funded by freewill donations. They describe their misson on their website homepage this way: “We believe the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus and our mission is to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere.”

Their videos and print media are made available free of charge for use in not-for-sale Bible teaching efforts. You can see how generous their permission rights are in the Terms of Use. They now have available over 130 videos and 200 podcasts which can be watched or listened to, downloaded freely and used for teaching.

To get a great idea of the nature of The Bible Project’s videos, watch this video and read this article on “The Angel of the Lord.”

Watch any of their videos here.

Listen to their podcasts here.

Their art and animation is varied and extremely well done. Most of the videos are short and can be shown in a class or group in less than 5-8 minutes.

While acknowledging that there might be some viewpoints or doctrinal views expressed in The Bible Project materials which I may not share, I do recommend that you check them out!
