Seoul archdiocese starts YouTube Bible study course

SEOUL (UCAN): The communications department of the Archdiocese of Seoul, South Korea, started an Online Bible Channel on November 24 following the pastoral direction of Andrew Cardinal Yeom Soo-jung, as more people watch video content through their smartphones.
 
Father Mattias Hur Young-yup, communications director, will address Custom in the Bible; vice-director, Father Peter Hwang Joong-ho will teach the Book of Exodus; and Father Thomas Lee Do-heang, undersecretary of the archdiocesan communications committee, will give talks on the gospel of Mark.
 
Their lectures, which will be uploaded to YouTube on a weekly basis, will not exceed six minutes to help the faithful learn the Bible in a short time. The content will be easy to understand for everyone from children to the elderly.
 
“Lots of faithful want to learn the Bible but it is hard for them to find the time. The channel was opened for them to learn the Bible during their commuting hours,” Father Hur said.
 
“The lectures are designed to help the faithful to understand and learn the Bible easily in a fun way in a short time. We hope more people will get interested in the Bible through the channel.”
