New Testament Videos from LDS.org

  • 2017 Mutual Theme Bracelet

Please consider using the new videos from the LDS Church during your New Testament Seminary course this year. Each video is short enough to be used during a daily seminary lesson.

You can download these videos to an iPad or other smart device so that you can use them without internet access. I know that the iPad can be attached to the television for play back to a group, as probably other devices can. The entire library and the smart device apps are available for free at http://biblevideos.lds.org/.

The list below has the titles of the videos with a link to them on the website along with a scripture reference. If you are teaching the books of the New Testament sequentially, you may wish to use the chart listed in your scriptures at Bible Dictionary: Gospels, Harmony of to spread the videos throughout your study.
