We are committed to helping the whole world see the Bible as one unified story that leads to Jesus.
What is the Bible Project?
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 create 100% free videos, podcasts, and resources that explore the Bible’s unified story.
The Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. We 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.
Sadly, for so many, the Bible is used as a devotional grab bag or an instruction manual that fell out of the sky. Worse, for many more, it is an oppressive book of out-dated rules used to control people.
We simply desire to help others understand the scriptures and all their complex themes in a way that is engaging, approachable, and transformative. We are committed followers of Jesus, but are not organizationally a part of any specific Christian denomination or tradition. We hope that people from all backgrounds will find value in this work, regardless of their religious or non-religious convictions.
Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins (long-time friends and one-time roommates at Multnomah Bible College) were tossing around ideas on how to help people read through Scripture while avoiding these common pitfalls and misunderstandings. How could complex themes of the Bible be presented in a way that was real and unapologetic, but approachable?
Combining Tim’s deep biblical understanding and Jon’s passion for visual story-telling, they created their first two videos in 2014 and put them online for free.
less than 5 years later, we have over 130 videos and 200 podcasts which can all be viewed on our website, The Bible App, YouTube, Vimeo and more. We have over 100 million views across all of our media channels in over 200 countries, and have over one million subscribers worldwide.
Viewership is evenly distributed between ages 18 to 45. We are inspiring the next generation to explore the Bible through the mediums in which they have been raised: visual storytelling and interactive technology.
Want us to let you know when we launch new videos and other great content? We typically only send a couple emails per month!
