Since Tim Mackie was in his 20s he has been on a mission to understand the Bible — its history, culture and language — and to help others understand the Bible. This passion led him to earn a theology degree and a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies, to serve as a pastor for several years, and eventually to start the BibleProject with co-founder Jon Collins.
In Today’s Conversation podcast hosted by NAE President Walter Kim, you’ll hear Tim share:
- Why he and Jon decided to start the BibleProject;
- How Tim was drawn to Jesus through an outreach to skateboarders;
- What approach the BibleProject takes to navigate different interpretations of Scripture; and
- How creativity threads through Scripture and connects to our calling as Christians.

Walter: I’m speculating here, but I want you to draw this out. Pre-pandemic, post-pandemic, what you’re doing at the BibleProject seems like it would have been equally applicable before and after because of the medium that you have chosen to work in and through. But is that the case? Have you noticed any shift in the ways that people have engaged with your material during the pandemic?
