The creators of BibleProject have in-depth conversations about the Bible and theology. A companion podcast to BibleProject videos found at bibleproject.com
The Bible had Editors? – Paradigm E3
How can a collection of ancient manuscripts written by numerous people over thousands of years tell one unified story? In this episode, Tim, Jon, and Carissa dive into how the Bible was written and how such a diverse collection of authors, literary styles, and themes can form one divinely inspired, unified story.
Who Wrote the Bible? – Paradigm E2
How does God work in the world and communicate with humanity? In this episode, Tim and Jon explore God’s relationship with his creation and the relationship between the Bible’s divine and human origins. They also discuss how God uses human words to communicate his divine word.
How Do You Read the Bible? – Paradigm E1
Have you ever read the Bible and felt like you’re not “getting it” or that you’re not connecting with God? In this episode, Tim and Jon take a look at the (often unhelpful) paradigms through which we interact with Scripture. They explore how seeing the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus not only gives the Bible space to do what it was created to do, but frees us up to be transformed by the story it’s telling.
Hyperlinks and Patterns in Jonah – Jonah E3
What makes a person worthy to be chosen by God to do his work? In the story of the Bible, some of God’s choices seem obvious, people with lots of merit. Other times, his rationale is less clear to us––as with Jonah, a chosen one who might be worse than the people he was supposed to help. In this episode, listen in as Tim describes the biblical design pattern of the chosen righteous intercessor. This is a sneak peek into our free graduate-level course on Jonah, which will be featured in the new Classroom resource available in 2022.
Jonah's Literary Context – Jonah E2
The Hebrew Bible contains one story of human failure after another, leaving us with no doubt in our minds: humanity desperately needs a leader. In this episode, Tim walks us through the structure of the Hebrew Bible and how it shows us Jonah is an anti-leader, the opposite of what humanity needs, whose failure prepares us for the ultimate leader and Savior, Jesus. This is a sneak peek into our free graduate-level course on Jonah, which will be featured in the new Classroom resource available in 2022.
Our Assumptions About Jonah – Jonah E1
A stubborn prophet, a wicked nation, a giant fish––the story of Jonah is frequently translated into the popular imagination through TV and movies. But what is it really about? In this episode, learn from Tim about where Jonah fits into the story of the Bible that ultimately points to Jesus. This is a sneak peek into our free graduate-level course on Jonah which will be featured in the new Classroom resource available in 2022.
I love this podcast! I listen weekly and I have learned so much in the process. It stretches the confines of what I thought I knew about the Bible, and has given me a much deeper appreciation for how God has revealed himself through Scripture and Jesus. I also use the videos and blog posts from the website to supplement my daily reading. Thanks to everyone at The Bible Project for your great work and for serving the global body of Christ with these amazing resources!
Love it!!!!! This podcast is the best podcast ever
My favorite podcast!
Recently I’ve been growing in and exploring deeper aspects of my faith in Jesus. The Bible Project (podcast and website) have been helpful resources to supplement my own reading of scripture and helped open my mind to areas of of the Bible that I missed or hadn’t even thought about! Truly amazing work Tim and John!
