What is spoken gospel?
Spoken Gospel is a non-profit digital media ministry committed to fostering transformative Bible engagement by producing creative videos that help people see and savor the good news of Jesus on every page of the Bible.
All our resources are free! What our small team makes is supported by the generosity of people who believe in our mission and enjoy what we are making.
“ A lot of people find the Bible unengaging. They know they should read it, but aren’t motivated to engage.”
We believe the only path to transformative Bible engagement is to see Jesus and his gospel wherever you are in the story. Jesus taught that he can be seen on every page of the Bible. Only by seeing the light of the Gospel in the face of Jesus can we be transformed into his image (2 Cor. 3:18, 4:6).
It is our goal to make a video introduction to every book of the Bible, using spoken word poetry to tell the story. We want each introduction to show the main themes of every book and how those themes are fulfilled in Jesus.
We also want to help people engage with every corner of the Bible in a transformative way. To that end, we are making Christ-centered devotionals and podcasts that cover every chapter of the Bible.
The Gospel changes things. Through our resources, we hope to create growing, deepening, and transforming Bible engagement that reshapes individuals, churches, and cultures with the Gospel. And we hope that you will join us in that mission.
WHAT WE MAKE
Short creative videos that use spoken word poetry to introduce each book of the bible, showing its main theme and how it is fulfilled in Jesus.
Brief field guides through every passage of scripture that explain each chapter within its context and how it reveals more about the good news of Jesus. Available in audio, video, and written form.
Deeper dives into how the big ideas presented by every book of the Bible find their climax in Jesus.
