FOR VALENTINE’S DAY, I videotaped a three-minute reading from the most famous love song in the Bible: Christian Love Song.
Oddly, a bachelor wrote it.
Way to go, Apostle Paul.
The paraphrase is from 1 Corinthians 13 in the Causal English Bible I’ve been creating as an easy-reading paraphrase.
I’ve been thinking of doing this kind of video reading for some of the especially important chapters in the Bible. Like Genesis 1, which would probably be my next project.
There are some glitches in the Love video, and I’ll likely redo it when I get some upgraded equipment. But this was the best I could do in a crunch. (I didn’t think about doing this until last Friday, when I realized I was supposed to teach Sunday’s lesson on a love topic.)
What do you think? Should I do more of this or is it overkill?
A lighter-weight option would be to simply add an audio reading of each chapter, which is something some other versions do on Bible Gateway, which is a wonderful site for Bible study.
Here’s the link to a three-minute clip:
What a fresh interpretation of a passage we’ve all heard countless times. You really did it justice.
I wouldn’t change a thing, Steve. It’s a perfect marriage of imagery, content and performance.
Nice job. I felt like I was hearing it all for the first time.

My goodness, Thanks Steve. I had trouble with the audio.
A big part of my problem is my soft-spoken John Boy Walton voice. It doesn’t boom. And I’m still trying to figure out how to punch it up with Adobe Audition in a way that doesn’t also punch up the background noise. I’m hoping to upgrade some equipment. And get a little smarter in the how-to department.
