The creators of BibleProject have in-depth conversations about the Bible and theology. A companion podcast to BibleProject videos found at bibleproject.com
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.

What Does the Word "Gospel" Mean — Top 5: Re-Release E4
The word “gospel” has acquired many meanings since the biblical authors first used it. What does it really mean? In the fourth of our five most-listened-to podcasts, Tim and N.T. Wright discuss the meaning of this important word in its original context, and explore what it means for Jesus to take charge as King and for his disciples to build his Kingdom.
I started with the videos…
…and I thought “These guys are actually doing theology, and doing it well.” I moved up to the podcast and I’m constantly impressed with the quality of the content and the clean production values. Nice job, Bible Project team.
I live their work on video. The podcast is a much deeper dive into same and similar content. So much content! Great work guys!!!
Listened to this podcast from the start to current and absolutely love it. Tim and Jon have a way of working through the details of scripture that many scholars seem to skip over or simply want to simplify. I appreciate how they take these biblical themes seriously. I have developed a deeper appreciation of scripture because of the insights that I would have never noticed on my own. Keep up the amazing work of God!
