Philip and the 5000

In this first-person narrative, Philip of Bethsaida tells us all about the day Jesus fed 5,000 hungry (and angry?!) men with 5 loaves and 2 fish. He also suggests that there was more going on that day than just a good meal.

Mark 6:34-44

Water Into Wine

Imagine if you could meet one of the servants from the wedding celebration in first century Cana of Galilee... one of the servants who participated in the miracle of Jesus, turning water into wine.

This episode of Bible StoryLine brings that imagination to life, as we hear the eyewitness testimony of one of the servants who filled those 6 water jugs.

As he tells his side of the story, we learn how Jesus was fulfilling the word of the prophets.

2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles 11-29

BSL020 The Rise of David

For all kinds of obvious reasons, David was the wrong choice to be Israel's king. He had none of the credentials.

Includes 1 Samuel chapters 8 - 31; Psalms 9, 13, 23, and 55.

BSL019 King Saul

Hear the story of King Saul, told in the style of Lemony Snicket.

BSL018 Samuel the Prophet

Life started out pretty badly for young Samuel.

God was asking him to do some really hard things.

The story of Samuel teaches us why God asks us to do hard things.

 

The Book of 1 Samuel

BSL017 Ruth

Ruth would become a great princess, and just like Cinderella, it would all come down to a shoe.

This is the book of Ruth told in four acts.

BSL016 Samson

Judges 13 through 16

BSL015Gideon

It's tempting to look at ourselves and believe everything we see.

But when Yahweh is your God, you know you've been redefined in a way that can change everything.

Hear the story of Gideon, the nobody from nowhere who, because God was with him, won one of the most unlikely victories in history!

Based on Judges 6, 7, and 8

BSL014 Joshua

As unlikely as it was for Moses to become Israel's leader, it was equally unlikely that Joshua would replace him.

Joshua would be there for the fulfillment of one of God's greatest promises reaching all the way back to Abraham.

Hear the story of Joshua.

BSL013 Life in the Wilderness Part 2

One thing you learn for sure as you hear the story of Isreal wandering in the desert wilderness: no matter what kind of crazy things happen in life, you can always trust God to keep his promises.

 

This is the second part of the "Wilderness Wanderings" episode of Bible Storyline. Part one focused on God's answer to the problem of Israel's persistent sin. Part two focuses on how God delivers His people, not on account of their own righteousness but on account of his Word.

The stories of Israel during their 40 years of desert wandering are part of the epic tales in Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers. Part 1 of 'Life in the Wilderness' highlights the God who forgives.

BSL011 Red Sea Crossing

God gives his people salvation so spectacular it would overwhelm all of their senses.

It was something so beautiful that it saved them, and so improbable that they could hardly believe they were still alive to see it.

It's the same way with the death and resurrection of Jesus: so beautiful because it saves us, and so improbable that we can hardly believe we are still alive to see it.

Exodus 14-16

BSL999 The Magi

Everything about Christmas is strange. A son is born to a virgin girl. That's about a strange as anything can possibly be.

What begins strangely gets weirder when visitors from faraway lands appear bearing gifts reserved for gods and kings.

Jesus, as it turns out, is both God and King.

Matthew 2:1-12

BSL010 The Plagues in Egypt

Sometimes people want to cast judgment on God for the bad things that happen - like the plagues in Egypt.

From the courage of Jachobed who chose adoption to save her baby boy to the bizarre burning bush that wasn't burning to the common sense of Jethro who sent Moses on his way, the story of God's salvation for an entire nation of Israelites begins with incredible drama.

In this episode, we especially focus on how God prepares Moses with faith because if he's going to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, he's going to need to trust in God to get it done.

Jacob was that kid who keeps stealing things from his big brother's bedroom when he wasn't looking. Hardly the type of person you'd expect God to care for.

Genesis 25-35, 37, 42-46, and 50

Genesis 4 and 6-9

BSL003 The First Sin

More than a "fall", the Bible's depiction of the first sin is more complex. We hear the story of the first time God's creation is misused. Something that was made for one purpose was used in a way for which it was not made. Chaos follows.

 

Genesis chapters 2 and 3.

Every story has a beginning. This is the story that begins every other story. And this story begins "forever ago".
