Read Scripture will launch an Android and iOS app on January 1st that is part of the Year of Biblical Literacy, a partnership between the Bible Project, Reality SF & Bridgetown church to study the bible in a year. Other churches will be heavily involved in promoting this. The app teaches you HOW to read the bible WHILE you’re reading the bible by inserting videos that clearly explain books, topics, and themes.
The app isn't there yet.
We need your grace. Feedback would be helpful too. Find a bug? Let us know. Have an idea? Tell us. We’re chiseling this rough block of marble into a beautiful iOS & Android statue of David that reflects Gods glory. Something that anyone can use anywhere in the world to read and understand the bible so that they can spend time alone with God.
This app is being built by a volunteer squad on nights, weekends, sick days and holidays. The mission? Get world-class bible teaching into people’s hands so that they can spend more time alone with God. Thank you!
Read scripture know God
Understand the Bible
Hand-illustrated Bible Project videos explain difficult concepts and themes “better than seminary” alongside scripture text
A brand-new Thematic reading plan constantly highlights the bigger picture so you can always see the big picture in your reading (Hint: It all points to Jesus).
Stay motivated to read
Track your progress on an interactive map of the entire bible that shows you where you’ve been and where you are going.
Reminders on your phone will ping you to help keep you on track.
Read scripture know God
The Bible says that the greatest command is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind.” God is described as a “jealous God.” The Scriptures say, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.”
God wants a relationship with you. He wants you to seek Him even when no one else is around. We want people alone with the Scriptures because we want people alone with God.
Read scripture know truth
The Bible says that in the last days people will find teachers to tell them what they want to hear (2 Timothy 4). People will be unwilling to read the Bible and follow its teachings due to their personal desires. In fact, they will start with their personal desires and then find teachers who will "prove" that their desires are allowable in Scripture.
We are encouraging a new generation to study the Scriptures honestly—to pursue truth even when it doesn’t agree with our natural impulses. The vision of Read Scripture is not to tell people what the Bible says, but to teach them how to discover truth for themselves.
What if thousands of people started their days alone with God, reading Scripture, and responding with adoration and action? It might not solve the world’s problems, but it might solve the church’s.
