Tellings will generally be done according to NBSI style:

  • Tell the biblical text by heart without added commentary or reenactment.
  • Aim for 95% story accuracy 70% word accuracy (NRSV, CEB OR NIV versions preferred)
  • Stay clear of anti-Jewish or racist tellings, (i.e. replace the words normally translated as “the Jews” with Religious Leaders or Judeans, as appropriate to the context)
  • As you are comfortable, feel free to avoid male pronouns for God
  • Tellers must be willing to share their video freely and publicly
  • Videos will be selected for quality, and for a diversity of tellers.
  • Watch a brief promo
