Bible videos from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

At the First Presidency Christmas devotional last night, President Eyring (first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) announced “a gift to the world” — a series of Bible videos depicting the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.  Based on the King James Version of the Bible, the hope is that these videos will help build and strengthen faith in the Savior.

The first few videos that share the Christmas story are available for viewing, sharing, and downloading (see terms of use here) — just in time for the Christmas season.

Following is the introductory video that was shared at the First Presidency Devotional. You can read more information about the Bible videos here. You can also see some of the upcoming videos and sign up for updates about the Bible videos via RSS feed or email updates.

Bible videos are also available in Spanish (Videos de la Biblia) and in Portuguese (Vídeos da Bíblia).

A free mobile app will be available in about a week, which will include the videos, as well as interactive maps, slideshows, and Bible facts. (View screenshots of the app.)
