NBSI Telling Guidelines:

  • Tell the biblical text by heart without added commentary
  • Aim for 95% content accuracy and 75% word accuracy (NRSV, NRSVue OR CEB, versions preferred)
  • As you are comfortable, feel free to avoid male pronouns for God
  • Tellers must be willing to share their videos freely and publicly
  • Videos will be selected for the technical quality and diversity of tellers.
  • Paraphrases and first-person monologues or updated versions put in current times are not desired.
