2202) More on “The Bible Project”



     Yesterday’s Emailmeditation encouraged you to take a look at “The Bible Project,” an excellent resource for studying the Bible.  This is from yesterday’s reading:

     A wonderful resource for learning about the Bible on-line is “The Bible Project” at the above website.  The site contains dozens of videos that introduce you to the Bible, summarizes the contents of all of its books, outlines a one-year Bible reading plan, and has videos to go with your reading describing the content of many sections of the Bible.  Explore the website for yourself, or look at some of the following sample videos.  And it is all FREE!

     I hope you took the opportunity to look at the website or at view some of the introductory videos I posted.  Today I am posting a few more videos, these being some of their excellent summaries of individual books of the Bible.

     There is probably more here than most of you have time for in a single sitting.  Therefore, the final video describes “The Bible Project” Daily Reading Plan, a plan to read through the entire Bible with briefer daily readings, videos, and email reminders.  If you don’t have a lot of time, take a quick look at one of the Bible book summary videos, and then at the daily reading plan.  And then consider how you might benefit from this overview study of the Bible.



“The Bible Project” website also offers a plan for reading through the Bible along with weekly emails to encourage your reading, and a video to go with your reading.  Full details are at the website, but posted below is their introductory video to the program:


II Timothy 3:14-17  —  Continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

II Peter 3:15-18a  —  Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.  He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters.  His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.  Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


 Blessed Lord, you speak to us through the Holy Scriptures.  Grant that we may hear, read, respect, learn, and make them our own in such a way that the enduring benefit and comfort of the Word will help us grasp and hold the blessed hope of everlasting life, given us through our Savior Jesus Christ.  Amen.
