Homeschool Supplements: Videos for Biblical History

Homeschool Supplements: Videos for Biblical History

I am studying World History and Bible this year. One thing I have noticed is a huge lack of material online for biblical history. There is only so much I can read from a textbook before the words start running together. I benefit from videos because I am a visual learner. I hope others can use these links to supplement their studies as well!
