HAMILTON, Bermuda—Actor John Rhys-Davies (Gimli in The Lord of the Rings trilogy) has partnered with the website BibleMesh.com as narrator of The Biblical Story, an online Bible survey course that explains how all of Scripture points to Christ.
The Bible is “a book that, even if you haven’t read it, has had an influence on your life,” Rhys-Davies said in the docudrama KJB [King James Bible]: The Book that Changed the World.
Joining Rhys-Davies in The Biblical Story’s 90-minute overview video is New York pastor and author Tim Keller who teaches the biblical theology throughout the video. Eric Metaxas, author of the bestseller Bonhoeffer, co-authored the video script along with King’s College President Greg Thornbury.
“BibleMesh is blessed with a gifted and diverse team of contributors,” publisher Emmanuel Kampouris said. “We’re grateful to have John Rhys-Davies partner with us. He’s an accomplished actor, and his narration helps present the Bible in a vivid and engaging way.”
The Biblical Story is entirely online and does not require any downloading or printing of material. It is being used as a textbook replacement in colleges and seminaries around the world. In addition to the overview video, the course provides commentary by a host of noted evangelicals: Hundreds of one-page articles introduce key Bible ideas while short teaching videos expound crucial points.
Among the personalities featured are Alistair Begg, senior pastor of Parkside Church in metropolitan Cleveland; Philip Ryken, president of Wheaton College in Illinois; J. Ligon Duncan, newly elected chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi; and Christopher Ash, director of London’s Cornhill Training Course.
“BibleMesh is not just facts,” said Thornbury, one of the course’s theological editors. “It’s a whole-Bible theology approach to learning Scripture.”
