Course Description

Learning Bible stories is a great way to learn more about Christianity. They also help to inspire us and provide great life lessons that can be used in our lives today. Because of all these reasons, and other personal ones that people may have, studying Bible stories remains a popular pastime.

There are many Bible stories that are well known, and then there are some that are not quite as known, but still offer an important look at history. The great thing about Bible stories is that the lessons still hold true today. Although times have change and social norms have evolved, what lies at the core of how humans relate and interact with each other still remains. 

In this comprehensive course, you will learn the details of many Bible stories such as stories of Creation, the Promised Land, Israel, and much more. Additional stories about God's people include Job, Esther, the Writing on the Wall, and Daniel in the Lion's Den. You will also learn some of the most important stories of the life of Jesus Christ, including his birth, the apostles, the last supper, and Judas betraying Jesus.
 
This course also covers Jesus being on trial, his crucifixion, and returning to heaven, as well as the miracles and parables of Jesus. This course finishes up by looking at some of the more popular children's Bible stories.

There are many wonderful things to learn form this course; from Samson and Delilah to David and Goliath and everything in between. This comprehensive course offers many insightful writings and powerful life lessons, so why not join us today?

Why Study Bible Stories?

Around the world, people study Bible stories on a regular basis. Church groups arrange Bible study groups, weekly lessons are usually delivered at Sunday services based on these stories, and there are even thousands of books dedicated to passing down Bible stories to children. So why are people still so interested in these ancient stories? For many reasons, including the following: 

  • Bible stories help us learn about where we came from and provide snapshots of our beginnings.
  • They usually teach us valuable lessons that can be used today, even in our vastly different and fast-paced world. The lessons found in Bible stories can be used today in everyday life.
  • The very nature of many Bible stories provides people with inspiration or a new way of looking at a particular subject.
  • Bible stories often teach us how to deal with some of the challenges that we face in our own lives.
  • They can help teach us right from wrong and give many people a feeling of closeness to their Creator and Jesus. The foundations of Christianity can be found in Bible stories.
  • Even those who are not dedicated to religion can still benefit from reading Bible stories because they can take value from the important lessons or they may be inspired. 

Learning Bible stories is a great way to learn more about Christianity and Judaism, as well as be inspired and learn life lessons that can be used in our lives today. For all these reasons and other personal ones that people may have, studying Bible stories remains a popular pastime. 

The Old and New Testament

The Bible stories in this course have been taken from both the Old and New Testament. There are popular stories from each that provide important lessons that make them valuable reading. From the Old Testament, we will learn stories that focus on creation, Noah, and the 10 commandments, among others. From the New Testament, we will learn about stories that cover Jesus, the Good Samaritan, and others. 

Pulling material from both the Old and New Testaments will help you learn a variety of stories and lessons. Some you may already be familiar with, such as the birth of Jesus, and others may be lesser known to you, such as the Man Born Blind. Whether you are already familiar with each story or not, it will serve a purpose in helping you review or learn anew. 

Narrowing It Down

When it comes to Bible stories, there are so many to choose from. They are all so good and well-worth reading. It is difficult to narrow down which ones to focus on, but alas, it must be done! With this in mind, in the following lessons you will go on to learn about the Bible stories that we have selected for this course. We are not saying they are the absolute best or most popular ones, but they were all selected to be a part of this course because they offer something interesting, valuable, and unique. 

Narrowing it down to fitting so many Bible stories into one course can be challenging. While we would like to include them all in here, we simply cannot. We hope you will agree that we have chosen a good variety of stories that will be both interesting and valuable to you. We believe we have created a great selection of them and we hope you do, too. 

Going Forward

As you learn about the Bible stories in this course, keep those that you are really fond of in mind. You may find ones that are particularly helpful to your life situations or that you would like to pass on to others who could benefit from being exposed to the lesson or by being inspired. There are also children's Bible stories that you will want to share with the children in your life, as they serve an important and helpful way of teaching them right from wrong.
