    Joseph of the “technicolor coat” fame is one of the most popular people from the Old Testament. But it's easy to forget that he was a real person who endured an incredibly difficult life of hardship and pain. Explore Joseph’s amazing journey from dungeon to throne room chapter-by-chapter and discover how God was there in the midst of his mess… and ours.

  • Could you use some help when it comes to studying the Bible? In this short video, David Platt shares a simple framework to follow when reading God's Word.

    Runtime: 5 min. 45 sec.

  • Eyewitness video narratives are Bible-based and are designed to spark your imagination and provoke your curiosity. Each video is 8-15 minutes long and addresses a portion of the Bible from the viewpoint of a Bible character. The videos and study guides provide a significant amount of historical, cultural, and chronological information that the original writers and hearers of the Bible knew, but are not well-known by most people today. 

    It is our hope that these videos will entice viewers to read and study the related Scriptures. For those who want to go deeper, we have provided study guides for the videos and related Scriptures (see the RESOURCES tab below each video).

  • The Word One to One is a guided read-through of John’s gospel, an eyewitness account of the life of Jesus. Each episode takes a small section of John’s gospel to read through verse by verse. The notes are designed to be read with a friend and contain all that you need to guide you through the gospel of John. This includes the passage, possible questions and notes which can serve as a framework for your conversation.
