Path for Growth with Alex Judd

In this episode, Jon shares some of the lessons he’s learned while building a successful non-profit platform, including the importance of delegation, how to define your business narrative, and what it’s like to work with a business partner. He also shares insight into the process of crafting and revising effective messages that distill complex information into digestible content.  What were you doing before you started BibleProject?

Jon Collins - The Bible Project Ep. 61

Good Faith Effort

It’s become overwhelmingly common to think of the Bible primarily as a text—a book full of words that we read. But while this is an important way of interacting with the Bible, it only develops later. If you look at how the Bible expects itself to be taught and studied, it’s much more about passing wisdom from parent to child, or from teacher to student. The Bible is something we’re supposed to perform or experience, not just read it. Living in the Digital Age, what opportunities do we have for doing this at a high level? To unpack all of this, Ari spoke with Jon Collins, one of the founders of the international phenomenon, The Bible Project, which has now reached over 100 million people across platforms with visual storytelling about the Bible. They spoke about how visual art can help teaching Biblical texts and ideas; why it’s important for readers to understand the Bible in its Hebraic context; what creative influences Jon brings to his artistic work on The Bible Project; why shared storytelling is so important for American society at this point in time; what the word “Shalom” means to Jon; and so much more!Good Faith Effort is a production of Bnai Zion and SoulShop.
