For the first time ever, all 24 NOOMA films featuring New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell are available in one 2-disc video package.

Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something, right here, right now, and anybody can be a part of it. He encouraged his listeners to search, to question, to wrestle with the implications of what he was saying and doing. He inspired, challenged, provoked, comforted, and invited people to be open to God’s work in this world. Wherever he went, whatever he did, Jesus started discussions about what matters most, because for Jesus, God is always inviting us to open our eyes and join in.

NOOMA is a series of short films that explore our world from a perspective of Jesus. NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion.

    I first saw this when going through a very difficult time in my life. It’s long passed, but I have the same reaction to this now that I had then. And that is, “What kind of God would value holding me close over the joy of seeing his child delivered? That would be so selfish. This man doesn’t know God well.”

    No parent loves holding their child close while they are wailing more than giving them the thing that would stop what was plaguing them. I know it sounds good, but all arguments cease when God compared his goodness to that of a natural father. He said if they know how to be good, then how much MORE him?

    When a parent has the ability or insight to help rescue their kid, no parent would hesitate. Even if the child is an adult, they do everything in their power to get them the help they need. Crisis isn’t a time when Papa is thinking about intimacy. He’s thinking about rescue.

    Bell does a great job of leading people to Jesus.Paul tells us if we believe in are hearts and confess with our mouths Jesus as lord in our lives, we will be saved. John said to all who receive him, he (Jesus) gives them the right to become children of God.

    “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8) this is Bell’s version of holding his son close and saying “I love you,” over and over again. Christ, the lamb of God willing sacrifices himself on our behalf. We escape the judgement of God and are adopted as sons and daughters. Great video!

    okay, I’m listening to this. This is an interesting video… The title says Bible study. A Bible study implies that you are reading and studying a book from the Bible. E.G. Psalms, Song of Solomon, or Matthew, or Jude. As I watch this, I observe that this looks more like he is relating a personal story of his, Rob Bells, life and using different stories and parts of The Bible to relate in his story. I ain’t going to criticize him, but I don’t believe the title of this video should be Bible study, because it doesn’t appear that this is what it is… that’s all I should say and not be a jerk about it.

    Every time I watch this I cry big time, picturing God with his loving arms holding me close saying “I love you Tiffany, were gonna make it, dad knows the way home, were gonna make it, I love you Tiffany”.  My top most favorite Nooma videos there is.  I also enjoy Matthew, Rhythm, and luggage.

    No one thinks they need to have it all together before they can have a relationship with God! In fact, it’s quite the opposite. He knows we are broken!
