Understand the Bible is a programme designed to help teach you the Christian faith through a series of short video / audio lessons.

This site is for people who would love to learn more about the Christian faith but struggle to find the time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner or if you’ve been going to church for a long time. If you have time to watch one 15 minute video (or listen to the equivalent audio) per week, you have time for this.

Bible Study

Do you have questions?

Maybe you have questions like this:

  • why is there suffering in the world?
  • why did Jesus die?
  • how do I have eternal life?
  • what is the purpose of my life?

If so, you’ve come to the right place. The heart of Understand the Bible is about discipleship. Discipleship is simply a word which means learning how to be a disciple – a follower – of Jesus. This is just what Jesus commanded when he said:

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

How it works

You create a free account (it’s dead simple – even more so if you already have a Google or Facebook account). Then you choose which course you want from the list. Then, you simply watch or listen to each session whenever is convenient for you.

We know it’s hard to find the time – so sessions are only about 15 minutes each (often less than that). We’ll also send you a reminder of when it’s time for your next session – you can choose a time that’s convenient for you.

If you have questions you can ask (no question is too stupid to ask!) on the discussion forum.

It’s all free, and you don’t commit to anything when you sign up. Why not give it a try?
