Assignment: Bible Story

Present a Bible story or parable (or equivalent from another religion) as a video.


Suggested techniques

You can do it in modern dress and setting if period dress and sets aren't available.

Use a voiceover, or tell the whole story in dialogue. Consider framing the story by having someone relate it, and cutting from the narrator to the story.

Add music and a title sequence.

For teachers: benefits to students

  • This allows the student to visualise the story and bring it to life.
  • By putting the story in a modern context, it encourages students to think about the moral aspect of it and extract that from the original setting, then see how that can be applied to their own lives.
  • Dramatic sequences makes for a good group project.
