This is not a “children’s bible” or a “children’s translation.” This is good ol’ fashioned storytelling much like you’d do around a campfire or while tucking a child into bed.
Our hope is to share with children the Alive and Active Word (Hebrews 4:12) that aims to get at the motives of why people (adults AND children!) do what they do.
Once complete, there will be over 250 videos—plus songs, coloring sheets, a companion app, and more—so check back often.Note to Parents
Could it be? While we certainly always try to be very accurate, this is an interpretive retelling of the Bible Story in a child’s language. Since we know what kinds of motives are in our own hearts (1 Cor. 10:13), it’s not hard to imagine what people could have been thinking during those times. So we took the very things we have considered and learned and applied in our own lives, and wrapped them up in these stories. We do realize that maybe it was—or maybe it wasn’t—what that particular person was thinking. We recommend a diligence in making sure the children hear the actual text of the Bible alongside this. On each video image, the Biblical context references are listed.
Green triangles are narrated and fully illustrated and will have simple animation added along the way. Yellow triangles have narration, but the illustrations aren't done yet. Videos with red triangles are planned. New and updated videos will be added very often.
Like Noah's task, this is a work in progress. New and updated videos will be added every week... over 250 when completed. These are our “rough drafts,” but in view of the current times, we hoped making them available now would be helpful.
