The Bible Project is a US non-profit that utilises short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. They 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.
The Bible Project is:
committed to understanding the Bible in its historical context and communicating its wisdom for the modern world; and not part of any specific Christian denomination or tradition — their mission is to help people from all backgrounds see the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus.
