The First Presidency announced a new gift to the world for the coming holiday season. “The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos” website was presented by President Henry B. Eyring during this year’s First Presidency Christmas Devotional and is a collection of short videos depicting the life of Jesus Christ.
The videos are faithful to the account found in the King James Version of the Bible and are a gift from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the world. They are made available to the public to help people understand and appreciate the life of Jesus Christ.
Please help us share this beautiful gift with the world.
The new website BibleVideos.lds.org is a repository for short videos depicting the life of the Savior. The website was designed to work well on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. The website’s media player is the same used in other Church websites and is compatible with most devices. Each video page includes the Biblical text being portrayed in the video and photos of the movie itself. The website is also available in Spanish and Portuguese and can be accessed at VideosdelaBiblia.org (Spanish) or VideosBiblicos.org (Portuguese). You can subscribe to the webside RSS feed or email updates.

New videos will be added to the website every month. The project will eventually have more than 100 new videos portraying the life of Christ.

The videos were shot at the Jerusalem Movie Set, a new movie set located on the LDS Motion Picture Studio South Campus in Goshen, Utah, about 60 miles south of Salt Lake City. The set is a re-creation of important locations in Jerusalem and covers an area about the size of a football field. You can learn more about the movie set in Church News and Events.
