TRANSCRIPT:

Tim Mackie – Chief Education Officer @ BibleProject

It’s really good to be here, you guys. I’ve had so many friends who are a part of the Jesus Church family or Westside here for a lot of years. This is my first time being to one of your gatherings and being out here, so it’s a privilege to do that.

Cheers. Yeah, it’s great. It’s great to be here.

This is a huge, huge set of questions around: what is the Bible, where did it come from, what is it, and why on earth should we view it as some source of authority or guidance in our lives?

I mean, if you’ve grown up with that idea of the Bible, it doesn’t seem strange to you. If you became a follower of Jesus later in life, or if you have friends who don’t follow Jesus, which I hope you do because they will help you get a reality check on how crazy it is that you believe all of this, you know what I’m saying?
