  1. Just found your site and will use it often. One question, have you considered using a modern setting (dress, situations, etc.) for the cartoons, for an audience not so tuned in to the historical setting?

  2. If “genuine” faith always produced obedience to God’s word, then the book of James would not have been necessary, since it is written to already saved people (ie, people that have faith).

  3. Halalu Praise God Yahvah for you have a wonderful future ahead of you-1Peter1:6 (Enter His Courts with Praise -Psa100:4,Acts26:14 New Heart of Love-Ezekiel El 36:26-23-31,John20:16-20-23 the same Today-Hebr13:8 Entrusted-Rom3:2) Brother/Sister-Greetings and Shalom Grace Peace Unfailing Love Mercy of God Yahvah to you and your family in abundance-2Pet 1:2-20-21,Isa54:10 We thank Yahvah for bringing you to our path in the midst of this busy world-Good to meet you in one of His many wonderful ways of bringing His people together in the Spirit Rom8:16-7-14 YouTube video 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) Halalu Yahvah Elohim Adonay Amen Amen Amen!

  4. Great job, perhaps*, one small point of enlightenment on this episode, James was not a 'half brother' of Jesus, he was the son of Alphaeus and Mary (other sister of Mary, the Mother of Jesus), which makes at the very nearest relative, as you may put it, a 'half cousin'
    unless of course you are suggesting he was one Joseph's sons from a suggested previous marriage?

  5. "'We' do not take responsibility for decisions taken by the veiwer based solely on the information provided in this virtual application.""'We' do not take responsibility for decisions taken by the veiwer based solely on the information provided in this video."This is a work of fiction and nonfiction and some things are factual. Any names or characters, businesses or places, events or incidents, are fictitious. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.

  6. many thanks for your wonderful Bible project I really enjoy it and am blessed. I think The Jewish believers were called "who belonged tot he way" (Act9:2) while the gentile believers were called "Christian" later with another entity.(Act.11:26).

  7. As you are a part of my weekly study, I need to say "thank you" for the organized/visual&audio/comprehensible/impartial/knowledgeable overview. It's a great opening every time I begin, to get a good handle on the setting, audience, time, etc. You are greatly appreciated!!!
