I’VE BEEN CREATING YouTube and Vimeo videos about the Bible for several years, with good and bad results.
The videos have been seen by millions of people, which is good. But have you tried reading comments on YouTube? That’s a tough crowd.
We Tubular People take hits from everyone: scholars, preachers, atheists, Baptists, Seventh-Day Adventists, and people who say stupid stuff, like there was never a Holocaust, the universe revolves around Earth, and no one has died of COVID. Tell that to my younger brother. Sorry, you can’t. He died of COVID.
Still, there are good people out there. And there are bad people who have goodness trying to get out, trying to break through the callouses and the crustiness of a person who will one day become a soul of faith.
I’m trying to help those folks in any way I can. Writing books. Paraphrasing the Casual English Bible (a consuming project)J. Creating maps of Bible places. And creating videos to help people get people into the Bible for the first time, or to see the Bible in a new way.
Son to me: “Shorter videos, Dad”
So, I have this son. He’s a digital marketing manager. He keeps telling me to make my videos shorter.
This is what preachers must feel like.
So, I’m introducing the one-minute Bible video experiment.
Below are links to the first two: John 3:16; Romans 8:31.
Number three premieres at 9 a.m. Central Time on Wednesday (today), It’s The Ten Commandments. I’m afraid that video takes almost two minutes. Sorry son. But “The Five Commandments” didn’t feel right.
