The video is about communication. It is about how difficult communication can be, and it includes some “deadly sins” of communication. It also includes some helpful tips on good and healthy communication.
The Bible is an act of communication. It is the way in which God and former God-followers communicate with our lives. The authors of the Bible wrote the books thousands of years ago, and we are reading their words. We are trying to interpret what they meant about the words they said. We try to interpret those words into what the words could mean in our culture.
