Year of Biblical Literacy

Year of biblical literacy

We firmly believe in the scriptures as the living word of God. Anytime we come across projects that point to God word,

that fit within out own culture, we want you to know about it. Check out the material below.


Where this is From

The Year of Biblical Literacy is a collaborative project between Reality San Francisco, Bridgetown Church in Portland, The Bible Project, and Read Scripture. The project launched in 2016 at Reality SF and Bridgetown in an effort to provide a comprehensive resource for people to be deeply immersed and thoughtfully engaged in Scriptures in both individual and communal settings. We believe that the Scriptures are God’s self-revelation and self-disclosure; therefore, knowing and responding to the Bible is vastly important.

Biblical literacy has fallen, even though general literacy has been on the rise in society at large. The Year of Biblical Literacy is designed to guide people through the practice of reading the Bible, a practice that our generation has de-prioritized and/or regarded as too difficult. To get started, download the daily reading plan via the Read Scripture App and explore the resources available, including the amazing and beautiful videos by Read Scripture. Find some friends or a small group to participate in the year with!

Read Scripture has created some beautiful and amazing animated Old Testament and New Testament videos that provide digestible context for every book in the Bible. They also have created several themed videos that help give understanding to some of the greatest and most difficult themes we see throughout Scriptures. These videos are helpful to gain context in whatever part of the story you are reading.
