    I am an atheist but this is probably 3rd time I am revisiting the Old Testament playlist because I love the way you speak and all the graphics you use. Your voice is soothing.

    Well told. Beautiful….

    Having just completed reading this section, this has helped me further understand the message. Thanks!

  4. Helen Couto on July 5, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Wow!!! Thanks for explaining in a way that my simple mind can understand. But I still set in wonder of all of God’s patients, love and never ending chances He gives us. Praise Him for His ways!

  5. Cliff Barber on July 5, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Again great job guys! The story is told and illustrated SO well!!! It reminds us of just how much God loves us that even after all the chaos, messiness, apostasy, etc, he still doesn’t give up on us. There’s a message in their for America and the World today.

    If one were to take the Bible seriously one would go mad. But to take the Bible seriously, one must be already mad.

    Your work is phenominal

  12. Elder Andre Thurman on July 5, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    I love how he narrates the narrative with animation depicting relevant biblical history.

  13. Dondrell R on July 5, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    I finished reading 2kings and I didn’t understand the last few chapters, but your explanation helped!

  14. Njoku Ezinne on July 5, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Wow!!! Israel and Jerusalem sound like the world right now. Some times I wonder if we are all too far gone. Thank God for Jesus.

    This is so so good

    Weren’t there 19 bad kings in the northern kingdom?

    Guys thank you so much for your channel and all the information. How long are you studying The Bible? Your knowledge of Gods word and plan is incredible.

    I have been strugling with understanding since I started. Few days of watching this channel and I understand the whole message and the point of the Bible.

    Thanks to this I was able properly explain to my non-christian friends.

    Thank you once again guys for everything.

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4

    Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    Where could I find the Bible verse about King Solomon marry so many wife’s for political porpose

  20. Nick R. on July 5, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    excellent series to help build a foundation for Bible study

  21. Fro_Double_G Gaming on July 5, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    I’d really like to hear your opinion about what happened with chemosh

  22. Hunter3457 on July 5, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    I came here because I was confused about what some people were saying about how Chemosh the god of Moabites defeated Yahweh, but in all honesty hearing this now God was not defeated at all, everything was just going downhill for the Israelites when they decided to disobey God

    Love Bible Project!

    King Solomon had a excellent Start, making righteous Judgement. Joab the merciless who’s life was taken under Solomon, God shows mercy to them that show mercy

    Thank you for your work!

  27. Gaétan KUBABURHANZI on July 5, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Thank you very much guys

  28. Andrea Omic on July 5, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Thanks for this. I am currently reading the Bible, and each time I turn to a new chapter, I watch your videos for context too. When reading Kings 2 I stumbled upon the fact that when Joash became King, he was only seven years old. Can you provide any context for that specific happening?

  30. Tilly Baker on July 5, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Thank you.

    And actually it was God who split the kingdom, not the kings.

    Get your head out of the book everyone there’s a homeless person near you get some spare blankets a thermos with hot coffee and anything else you can spare that you are not using we know enough scripture ….get to work for God’s sake

  34. Kathy Hanna on July 5, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Thank you for sharing and putting up all these videos. It’s very inspiring for a person like me who doesn’t read the bible.

  35. Bram Van Opdenbosch on July 5, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    "When a group of boys (or youths) from Bethel taunted the prophet for his baldness, Elisha cursed them in the name of Yahweh and two female bears came out of the forest and tore forty-two of the boys." LMAO

  36. jandjsalmon on July 5, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    This was incredibly helpful. Thank you!

  37. Aline Pearson on July 5, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Thank you for the Bible overview. I love it! These overviews break down the bible and helps me to understand it so much better. Keep up the great work!

  38. Sam McNeill on July 5, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    So hopefull

  39. Wilfred Imbukwa on July 5, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks for making me understand the Books of Kings. I tried reading them and got confused. But this visual representation has made me understand Kings better

  40. Jordan Stanfield on July 5, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    He leaves out some pretty dark stuff like how they sacrificed their sons to the fire of molech which is another name for Baal. Ppl til this day warship moloch specifically a lot of ppl in the us goverment and Hollywood actors warship molech and sacrifice children in todays times just like they did in the bible. They doit to warship their god and to anger the true god. Look up bohemian grove and the moloch ritual they call cremation of care.

  41. Lysander xX on July 5, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Another excellent overview!

    I’m excited to see if the overview of Chronicles will talk about wicked king Menasseh’s repentance. He may have been the worst, most anti-LORD king of them all, but Chronicles describes how he repents and is forgiven (even for child murder to pagan gods?). It’s too late for the tribes of Israel, but he was right with the LORD in the end.

  42. Jamie Smith on July 5, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    This mentions yet another case of child sacrifice. Sometimes I wonder if abortion is a modern day child sacrifice to the god of wokeism. Woke SJWs refuse to accept that people have the value of a person before they’re born, so some of them are sacrificed under the principles of wokeism.

  43. Bud Hancock on July 5, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    Excellent work!
