The Bible project in Thai
I don’t know if you’ve come across one of The Bible Project videos, but they are fantastic. The two creators, Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins wanted “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.” thebibleproject.com/about
I will be heading up the Internet Evangelism and Digital Media ministry of OMF Thailand when the current leader returns to his home country in the middle of the year. Our current major project in partnership with Campus Crusade and Create Thailand is to make The Bible Project videos available in Thai. The team is working on the first video “What is the Bible?” now and we hope to have that finished within the next month. After that, the aim is to translate 2 videos per month.
I believe that this will be an invaluable resource for Thai Christians and the Thai Church.
