“The message of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to be shared as widely as possible throughout the world.” —Elder Lynn G. Robbins of the Seventy

With the current renewed interest in the Bible—as evidenced by Bible-themed Hollywood movies and TV mini-series such as A.D. The Bible Continues—now may be the perfect time to share the Church’s The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos with friends and family through social media.

Depicting events from the New Testament, the Bible videos have been watched millions of times over the last three years on the BibleVideos.org website, the Bible Videos mobile app, the Gospel Library mobile app, and Mormon Channel platforms, including YouTube and Roku.

Of the 92 Bible videos the Church has filmed and published over the past three years, more than half have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Russian, German, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese, with the remainder coming later this year.

Use Bible Videos app to share your testimony

In addition to the website, the interactive Bible Videos app for Android and iOS offers an engaging and interactive way to watch and read key accounts from the New Testament and makes it easy to share one video at a time.

Members of other faiths may not be aware that individually and as a Church, Latter-day Saints love and revere the Bible. Because all content in the Bible videos is based on solely on the Bible, people of many faiths can benefit by experiencing Christ’s ministry and teachings.

As you share Bible videos on social media, consider expressing your love for Bible teachings or your testimony of the Savior.

“The message of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to be shared as widely as possible throughout the world,” said Elder Lynn G. Robbins of the Seventy. 

Watch and show videos to study and teach about the Savior

The Valiant classes in Primary are studying the New Testament this year. And with the New Testament being this year’s Gospel Doctrine course of study, the Bible videos provide new and meaningful ways to learn about the teachings of Jesus Christ. Each video is only a few minutes long, which makes it easy to use one or more to illustrate specific events and teachings during lessons or personal study.

“It is our hope that these New Testament videos will help people to visualize what they have only been able to imagine and to more deeply feel the truths of the New Testament as they witness the Savior’s life and not just as they read about it,” Elder Robbins said. “Hopefully, there will be entirely new insights into the Savior’s character that will help viewers feel of His love and inspire them to want to be more like Him.”
