The Bible Project

I remember when I was a young boy my mom would take me to Sunday School every week in the Nazarene church. If your old enough your experience might be similar. 9:30 Sunday morning sitting in those little kid chairs in the church basement with another dozen or so kids. One of the moms or perhaps the Pastors wife would pull out a large easel out of the closet drape a large piece of colored flannel over it and then proceed tell a story from the bible. She had an arsenal of basically ever figure and major event under God's green earth... literally. My favorite was the story of Noah. She would tell the story and as she did pull these flannel figures from a box in an order and manner that made the whole story unfold in front of our very eyes. Maybe I liked it because she would ask for helpers to stick all the animals on the Ark, kinda like going to the zoo without the stink. What I didn't realize at the time was she was imprinting in a very practical and visual way God's plan for redemption in my young mind. She had my attention, my ear and as my mind was piecing together what the scene could have looked like. She was imprinting on my heart just how Holy God was and to what extent He would go to save.

It's been a long time since I was that little boy but in a lot of ways with modern technology I am still having images and messages imprinted on my mind and in my heart. I have found a group that is doing that today with the Bible. They are called "The Bible Project" I imagine it as the flannel graphs of the 21st Century. I will be using there videos, curriculum and web site to teach bible as a part of

If you plan on participating in RootedTalk I would encourage you to click the link below for 'The Bible Project' and join. There is no cost it is a non-profit and offers all the material for free and you can donate to them if you want to help support.

The Bible Project is a non-profit animation studio that produces 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.
The Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. They believe it ultimately points us to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself.
They focus on the Bible's overarching themes and each book’s literary design and are committed to understanding the Bible in its historical context.

P.S. Thanks mom for taking me to Sunday School!
