Before You Start

The bible is an ancient text written thousands of years ago containing three ancient languages. It is the most widely read collection of books in history promoting the most controversial figure to ever walk the earth. It makes astonishing truth claims that answer fundamental questions any good philosophical system attempts to answer: Why are we here? Why is there evil and suffering? What is the best way to live? Where are we going when we die? The bible, however, is very different from a philosophical system because it focuses on a person instead of a set of ideas. In order to see this and read it properly you will be required to take off your 21st century glasses; not an easy task. These videos are short primers explaining what the bible is, how it was put together, and how it is supposed to be read. Considering the magnitude of this book it is well worth your time to read it… whether you identify as a Christian or not.
