Through the Bible with Les Feldick is a television series produced by KWGB-TV in Tulsa, Oklahoma and hosted by Les Feldick, airing nationwide in syndication. [1]

Premise

The series follows a serial format, with the series premiere discussing the Genesis creation narrative and working linearly through the King James Version of the Bible in each successive episode. Once Feldick completed the Book of Revelation, he would then restart the discussion at Genesis. The series was unscripted, and Feldick, who admittedly had no formal theology training, usually ad libbed the entirety of each program with no lesson plan. [2]

History

Feldick was involved in teaching Sunday school, teaching training union[ clarification needed ], hosting missionaries at his home, was a deacon and started teaching home Bible studies in 1962. It began with one night a week but quickly grew into five and six nights a week. In 1975, Feldick and his wife relocated to Oklahoma from Iowa, and started a home Bible study there that also grew to five nights a week by 1977. In 1990, local television station KWGB-TV in Tulsa, Oklahoma contacted Feldick about starting a televised Bible series (as they had been given a tape from one of his class members) "Through the Bible with Les Feldick" debuted in October 1990, with four shows taped a week, with the first several shows taped using money donated by his class. Feldick taped shows until October 2009, when he ended the show. [3]

Reruns of his shows still appear on television stations throughout the United States, mostly on religious stations, such as PAX TV (and its successor Ion Television until E. W. Scripps Company acquired the network and dropped the program), World Harvest Television, Christian Television Network, and GEB America. After Ion dropped the program under Scripps ownership in 2021, Feldick secured carriage on the game show-themed network Buzzr. [4]
