Fun new visual way to understand the first 5 books of the Bible

Now Playing in the Bible App:
The Torah Series

As you read (or listen to) certain books in the Old Testament, do you ever wonder, “Why is this in the Bible? What’s the story behind this story?” Today we’re excited to announce The Torah Series, an all-new collection of animated short films from the Bible Project that answers questions just like these.

In Jewish tradition, the first five books of the Old Testament are called “the Torah.” In this series of short films, Bible scholars walk you step-by-step through the Torah’s themes and literary structure, as vivid animations help you see the connections between its stories. We think you’ll want to watch The Torah Series again and again — and share its clips with your friends.

Presented by YouVersion in partnership with The Bible Project — now, for the first time ever, you can watch The Torah Series in any of these places:

The Bible is better with Friends.

The most important things in our lives are best when we’re sharing them with others. Ask a family member or a friend — or several — to join you in a Bible Plan during Lent. Then each day, discuss what you’re discovering. Share your questions with each other, and encourage one another as you pursue greater devotion to Christ. Adding Friends in the Bible App is easy!
