In preparing for my Pentateuch class earlier this year, I came across the Bible Project Youtube channel found here.
What really impressed me was not only the production values but also the quality of the discussion that goes with each of these. (It also helped that they’re beginning with the OT :-))
I think they would be ideal for use in a home group / bible study or small group setting.
Let us know what you think!

Dr Rick Lewis was at Tabor Adelaide in February to lead a postgraduate intensive entitled “Mentoring for Ministry and Mission”. Rick served for over 30 years as a local church pastor and now works as an itinerant mentor and consultant, serving around 50 senior Christian leaders in Australia, the UK and South-east Asia. He holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, having conducted action research into mentoring processes for pastors.
We video recorded the lectures from the first day and have made them available (along with the accompanying powerpoint) on the Tabor Adelaide website (http://taboradelaide.edu.au/schools/school-of-ministry-theology-culture/media). There is a lot of good stuff here!
bibledex.com has a series of short videos (usually 5-10 minutes) which focus on the books of the Bible and some of its most well-known verses. These are produced by the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Nottingham and could function as a small-group conversation starter, visual illustration, or as the basis for a devotion / reflection. The quality is a bit variable and they are by no means comprehensive, but you may find something here which is of interest and use.

A great website which a number of our lecturers here at Tabor Adelaide subscribe to and use is called The Work of the People
They describe themselves as “an independent ecumenical platform that produces and publishes multimedia to stir imagination, spark discussion and move people toward discovery and transformation.” And they get a lot of great Christian thinkers contributing (including Brueggemann, Volf, and Wright).
I thought the clip at this link, From Palms to the Cross , was particularly relevant given our location in the Christian year.
