Jesus Is Worth Thinking About

A Scripture Study Blog

Recommended Videos

I’ve decided to create a this page to post videos that I find to be interesting, educational, challenging, faith-building, fun, or significant in their effect on my thinking. I’ll add links for additional resources, and I want to note that I don’t agree with everything each person or ministry believes; however, I do respect their work and thank God for it because it has been extremely helpful to me. Enjoy.

The Supremacy of Christ by John Piper
Someone created a video using animated images from Full of Eyes ministry and a sermon by John Piper. Piper discusses what it means for Jesus to be supreme in all things, and what the purpose of the Gospel is. It’s extremely powerful. This is a must watch. See and savor the supremacy of Jesus Christ. For more content by John Piper you can check out Desiring God.

The Making of the Bible with Tim Mackie
Tim Mackie is one of the founders of The Bible Project. He’s a professor at Western Seminary and a pastor at Door of Hope church. He’s definitely one of my favorite teachers to learn from. As a part of something called The Year of Biblical Literacy, which was created for the purpose of educating Christians about the Bible, he gave a lecture to kick off the year about how  the Bible was actually made. I find this video to be both educational and faith building. Tim Mackie explains how the Bible was pieced together and how it claims to be both a divine and human word, something many people miss. He also dismisses some false conspiracy theories and cultural narratives about how the Bible was made that have unfortunately become mainstream.

That’s My King by Dr. S.M. Lockridge
Is Jesus your king? Do you know him? Powerful descriptions of Jesus from Dr. S.M. Lockridge.

A Call to Anguish by David Wilkerson
A powerful and brutal wake up call for Christians who’ve slowed or gotten a little too comfortable in their walk with Jesus.

The Book of Job by The Bible Project
Tim Mackie and Jon Collins discuss the purpose of the Book of Job, and what it teaches us about suffering. The Bible Project is an outstanding resource for digesting Biblical narratives and themes. Click here to check out their other videos. A few of their playlists are listed below as well.

How to Read the Bible Playlist
An amazing series by the Bible Project that dives into what the Bible actually is. It’s currently incomplete, but the first couple videos are breathtaking.

Key Biblical Themes Playlist
This is a playlist of some amazing videos on different Biblical Themes by The Bible Project. I particularly love The Gospel of the Kingdom and The Messiah.

The Torah Series Playlist
This is a beautiful illustrated and told summary of the narrative of the first five books of the Bible by Tim and Jon of The Bible Project. They nailed it.

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead? by Impact 360 Institute
A look at some of the reasons why dismissing the possibility of Jesus’ resurrection isn’t as easy as it may seem.

The Kalam Cosmological Argument by Reasonable Faith
Dr. William Lane Craig aims to provide an intelligent, articulate, and uncompromising yet gracious Christian perspective on the issues concerning the truth of the Christian faith today. Here, the cosmological argument is considered when asking the question: Does God exist? For more work by William Lane Craig, you can check out Reasonable Faith.

The Fine Tuning of the Universe by Reasonable Faith
Reasonable Faith brings another argument to the case when discussing the question of whether God exists.

The Moral Argument by Reasonable Faith
An interesting video that shows how our knowledge of morality actually points us to knowing that there is a God.

Refuting Zeitgeist the Movie with Mark Foreman
What this video lacks in production quality, it makes up for in content quality. You may have heard the extremely common argument (pushed on by the Zeitgeist movie) that Jesus was just a copycat myth based on a variety of ancient religions—that supposedly other mythical figures also had 12 disciples, born on December 25th, did miracles, resurrected, etc. In this video, Mark Foreman does a wonderful job explaining why this conspiracy theory is complete and total pseudo-intellectualism with virtually no historical basis at all. It just doesn’t hold up with the evidence.
