What is The Bible Project?
The Bible Project is a Portland based non-profit that utilizes short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. We create videos, podcasts, and study guides that explore the Bible’s unified story by focusing on its overarching themes and each book’s literary design. We are committed to understanding the Bible in its historical context and communicating its wisdom for the modern world.
We want to change how people read and use the Bible. For some, the Bible is used as a devotional grab bag. For others it is a instructional manual that fell out of the sky. And for many, it is an oppressive book of out-dated rules used to control people. We believe that the Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. We think it points people to Jesus, who has power to change individuals and whole communities. When we let the biblical story speak for itself, we believe it has immense wisdom to offer the modern world.
The Bible Project is not part of any specific Christian denomination or tradition. Our mission is to help people see the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus. We hope that people from all backgrounds will find value in this work, regardless of their religious or non-religious convictions.
Reading the Revised Common Lectionary is an enriching spiritual discipline. Lectionary churches are bound together through a three-year cycle of scripture lessons that cover the full spectrum of scriptural genres and texts that span the Biblical witness of faith. For the most part, a believer in attending a lectionary church in Texas will be reading the same scriptures that have been read for the same day in not only other parts of our country, but in other areas of our world. There is a comfort when we realize that family and friends will be hearing the same scriptures that we hear and reflect on.
