The world’s first video Bible is in the works thanks to a new Christian Bible platform. Dave Pillow founded the Video Bible with the goal of reaching out to people who have difficulty reading a physical Bible as well as children who are unable to read.
The Video Bible is also intended for anyone who wants to add something “unique” to their intake of Scripture, according to Pillow, in an interview with The Christian Post.
“We have a special place in our hearts for the Church all over the world.” “We felt called to this because we have a heart for the Lord,” Pillow said. “I believe we want people to have a better understanding of Jesus and how much God loves them.” We saw a need and wanted to meet it by making God’s Word more accessible to people.”
Despite the lack of a release date, Pillow claims that The Video Bible will be available as an app.
Meanwhile, visitors can visit The Video Bible’s website and YouTube channel. The YouVersion Bible app has some of its content as well.
The resources on The Video Bible’s website and YouTube page, according to Pillow, are already proving useful for people with dyslexia and literacy issues, as well as those who simply prefer an audio Bible to a written copy.
“As you get older, it’s harder to concentrate,” my neighbor said. As a result, it’s assisting her,” he explained. “Everyone can relate to this.” In a video-driven world, I believe it allows people to engage the Bible in the same way they engage the media.”
According to Pillow, 75 million Americans, or 20% of the population, have difficulty reading, and 35 million have dyslexia. Furthermore, 54.1 million senior citizens have difficulty reading, and nearly one-third of the country’s population has difficulty reading the Bible. It’s difficult to read the world when your brain works in different ways. People with learning disabilities are frequently misunderstood, according to Pillow. “God intended for them to see and interact with the world in a unique way, and they should be able to engage with and read God’s plan in His Word in the same way that anyone else.”
He went on to say, “We’ve gotten overwhelmingly positive reactions on YouTube and on the website.” “I believe that when it becomes an app, it will expand even more communities of believers because people will be able to come together and listen and watch on their phones and other devices.”
While The Video Bible provides a new way to interact with the Scriptures, Pillow stressed that it is not meant to replace God’s Word’s written pages.
He argued, “Absolutely continue to read your handheld Bible.” “The audio Bible is not a substitute for the written Bible.” It improves it. It’s another way to connect with God.”
Multiple Christian organizations, including Biblica, YouVersion, and The Gospel Coalition, have endorsed the Video Bible, which is a crowdfunded collaborative project.
