Stories from the Old Testament

       THE OLD TESTAMENT is the account of God's dealing with the Jews as his chosen people. From Genesis to Malachi - from creation to the last of the Old Testament prophets - the history of the Jews are told. The Old Testament, like all of the Bible, is God's Word, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and written down by man as they were inspired.

       It is our hope that these stories from the Bible will be enjoyable to you, and will teach you many things about God, and how He is important in your life.

       A Note to Parents and Teachers: Each of these stories has a printable version, so that they can be used in Sunday School, homeschooling, or as a daily devotional. Choose the print icon located at the top right of the story page, to load a print version.
