BibleVideos.LDS.org Is Gift to the World

During the 2011 First Presidency Christmas Devotional, Church leaders presented The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos website, a “gift” to the world.

Biblevideos.lds.org is a repository for original short videos that depict scenes from Christ’s life, ranging from the angel foretelling Christ’s birth to the Savior’s Resurrection.

President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency, announced the site during the devotional.

“Like the scriptures which these short films follow faithfully they may seem to you quiet,” he said. “Your faith and the Holy Ghost will create the emotion these world-changing events deserve.”

Material for the videos is being provided from footage shot at the Church’s new LDS Motion Picture Studio South Campus in Goshen, Utah, where filming for the New Testament Scripture Library Project began in August 2011.

The project will yield more than 100 vignettes portraying the life of Christ, taken directly from the text of the King James Version of the Bible.

The website has a mobile-friendly design and is available in English (BibleVideos.lds.org), Spanish (videosdelabiblia.org), and Portuguese (videosdabiblia.org). A free iPad app is also available, offering a new way to experience Bible stories through sight, sound, and touch.

Eventually, nearly 100 videos depicting New Testament scenes of Christ’s life will be available on The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos website.
