PSALMS: VIDEO BY THE BIBLE PROJECT
The Bible Project is producing these helpful introductions to each of the Bible books. The Book of Psalms is a book of 3,000 year old Hebrew poems stitched together. Historically, Hebrew worship has centered on several things: Torah reading and obedience, sacrifice, and Psalm singing. Though we often treat Psalms as poems, they were originally sung, and that's one of the reasons worship leaders often produce songs from the Psalms.
Our goal at The Journey Bible Project for the Psalms is straightforward and important: experience worship of Yahweh in Psalms by writing blogs on each Psalm, reading them in worship and in homes and Bible studies, and preaching from them.
