Bringing The Bible Project to the Arab World

In recent years MEM have been involved in 5 Bible media projects, such as Animating the Action Bible and the first Arabic Bible app. We are honoured to bring the Word of God to Arab children, young people, and adults of all ages. Therefore, we were excited to partner with the organisation called The Bible Project, to bring their innovative animations to the Arab world.

The Bible Project started in 2014 with the vision to help people read through scripture while avoiding common pitfalls and misunderstandings. They combined biblical understanding with visual story-telling and have since created over 130 videos and 200 podcasts. With over 100 million views across all of their media channels in over 200 countries, they are teaching the Bible in a pioneering and attractive way to a new generation of people aged 18 to 45.

In a region where approximately 70% of the population are under 35 years of age, we are very excited to see the impact of these animations across the Arab world through this younger generation. Countries, such as Saudi Arabia, who have over 90% of their population using social media, are becoming more open and seeking answers about God.

In 2014 as The Bible Project was just posting their first videos, our Gulf Ministry Director immediately saw the value of having these videos in Arabic to minister and share the scripture with the Arab World. At that time they were not ready to entertain doing an Arabic language version, however we continued to follow the progress of the project.
Last year, as we entered into a partnership with The Bible Project, our teams were very excited & committed to be creating these innovative animations, making them accessible across the Arab world. They help to ignite a passion within Christians and those seeking God across the region to understand and grow in their knowledge of the Word of God.
