What does it mean to love God "with all of your strength"? In this final installment of our videos on the Shema, we explore the Hebrew word underneath this phrase. And spoiler alert: "strength" is only one of many ways this rich word could be translated!
Most of us think of characters in Bible as either sinners or saints, good or bad. At least that’s how Bible stories are presented to children. In this video, we’ll explore the ways biblical authors present characters as more complex and morally compromised than we usually imagine.
The word “love” is one of the sloppiest words in our language, as it primarily refers to a feeling that happens to a person. In the New Testament, “love” refers to a way of treating people that was defined by Jesus himself: seeking the well-being of others regardless of their response.

What Is The Bible Project?
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.
We believe the church is a unique and living organism that draws individuals closer to a relational God, and we are honored to create resources for church communities to dive deeper into the unified narrative of the Bible.
Our church has been able to read through the The Bible with the help of The Bible Project's short introductory videos. Through the theme videos, we've been able to communicate big ideas that run through the entirety of Scripture in a concise, easily-digested manner.
-Ryan Smith, Living Stones Church
Schools all around the world are using The Bible Project videos and resources to augment, or create curriculums for students anywhere from elementary schools to post-graduate seminaries.
My desire in teaching was to help make God, faith, and theology relevant to teenagers. Your videos have been an extraordinary help in my classes. I can teach an idea like sacrifice or the messiah, and then at the end of class play one of your videos and it wraps everything up perfectly. The Bible Project videos help my students understand their own personal call from Christ.

Get together with some friends, watch The Bible Project videos in a relaxed setting, and discuss themes of scripture more in depth. We’ve also got Study Notes for some of the videos (and are working on more) to help facilitate discussion!
The Bible Project is making a wonderful impact for the Kingdom as believers old and new get clear, understandable access to the structure and overarching theme of the Scriptures.
-Jeff Quinto, Executive Director of the Adult Christian Education Foundation
We’ve gotten so many amazing e-mails and letters from you all, telling us about how you’re reading through the bible with your family, sharing devotional studies, learning together, spending quality time, and growing closer to God and each other. We love it!
I shared your bible project videos with my family during our bible study/devotions time, and they loved them. Even our teenage son watches them with enthusiasm!
-Eugene K, Father
You know how to use our resources best!
I've become newly motivated to read through the bible with renewed passion. It's doing wonders for my devotional life. Additionally, I want to describe the way my kids (especially my 8 year old son) enjoy your videos. We have together gone through about 40 of your videos (the topical + torah series + read scripture series). God has really used your videos to make him understand a summary view of many portions of the word. It's a joy to see him summarize the book of Leviticus in about 5-6 mins in his own language - something that I couldn't do till about 2 years back!
