The Story of Creation

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

God creates the world

On the first day, God created the heaven and the earth. He also created light and darkness.

On the second day, God created the sky and the seas.

On the third day, God created plants and trees.

On the fourth day, God created the sun, moon, and stars.

On the fifth day, God created fish and birds.

Adam and Eve

The story of Creation is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible. It tells the story of how God created the world and everything in it, including human beings.

The story begins with God creating the heaven and the earth. For six days, God created everything that exists. On the seventh day, God rested.

On the sixth day, God created human beings. He created them in His image, which means that they are like Him in some ways. They have the ability to think and feel and make choices.

God gave human beings special instructions on how to live. He told them to be good and to have respect for one another. He also told them not to eat from a certain tree in the Garden of Eden.

Unfortunately, Adam and Eve did not follow God’s instructions. They ate from the forbidden tree, which Disobedience led to them being kicked out of the Garden of Eden.

Since then, human beings have been struggling to obey God. We make bad choices and we hurt each other. But even though we sin, God still loves us. He wants us to return to Him so that we can have eternal life with Him.

Noah’s Ark

The story of Noah’s Ark is a story that teaches about obedience, faith, and God’s promise. It is a story that has been passed down for generations and is still loved by many today.

Noah builds the ark

Noah was a righteous man, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

God saw that the earth was full of wickedness and decided to destroy it. He told Noah to build an ark out of gopher wood and to put rooms in it for his family and for all the animals of the earth.

Noah did everything that God commanded him to do. He took two of every kind of animal onto the ark-male and female so they could reproduce. He also took seven pairs of every clean animal, so there would be enough to sacrifice after the floodwaters receded.

After Noah and his family were on board, and all the animals were safely inside, God sent a flood that covered the earth for forty days and forty nights. The waters rose until they were more than twenty feet above the highest mountains. Every living thing on earth perished-birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and all crawling insects. But Noah and his family were safe inside the ark.

When the waters finally dried up, Noah released a dove to see if it was safe to come out. The dove returned with an olive branch in its beak, showing that there was vegetation on the earth once again. A few weeks later, Noah released a raven, but it did not return because by then there was enough food for it to eat outside the ark. Finally, Noah and all the animals left the ark and began new lives on a fresh start for the earth

The flood

Noah was a man who was chosen by God to build an ark and save his family from the flood. The flood was a time when God destroyed the earth because of the sin of man. Noah was a good man and he listened to God. He built the ark and saved his family from the flood.

Joseph and the coat of many colors

Joseph was his father’s favorite son. Because of this, his brothers were very jealous of him and sold him into slavery. Joseph was taken to Egypt where he was bought by Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh. Joseph worked hard and was soon put in charge of Potiphar’s entire household.

Joseph is sold into slavery

The story of Joseph and the coat of many colors is found in the Bible in the book of Genesis. Joseph was the 11th son of Jacob, and his father favored him greatly. Jacob gave Joseph a coat of many colors as a sign of his love, but this caused jealousy among Joseph’s brothers. They sold him into slavery, and he was taken to Egypt.

In Egypt, Joseph was falsely accused and imprisoned. However, he interpreted the Pharaoh’s dream, which led to his release from prison and his rise to power in Egypt. When a famine struck Jacob’s home region, Joseph’s brothers came to Egypt to buy food. They did not recognize their brother, but he forgave them and welcomed them into his home.

Joseph interprets the Pharaoh’s dream

Joseph was sitting in his cell in prison, when suddenly the door swung open and the guard marched in. Joseph’s heart sank—he thought he was going to be executed. But instead, the guard said, “The Pharaoh wants to see you—now!”

Joseph was escorted to the palace, where he stood before the mighty ruler of Egypt. The Pharaoh said, “I have had a dream, but I don’t know what it means. Can you interpret it for me?”

Joseph thought for a moment, then said, “The dream means there will be seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine.”

The Pharaoh was so impressed with Joseph’s interpretation that he immediately put him in charge of preparing for the famine. Joseph did such a good job that when the famine came, Egypt had enough food to last seven years!


The story of Moses is found in the Bible both in the Old Testament and New Testament. He was a Hebrew man who was chosen by God to lead the Hebrew people out of slavery in Egypt.

Moses in the bulrushes

The story of Moses begins in Egypt, where the infant Moses was placed in a basket among the bulrushes by his mother, who then left him to be found and raised by the Pharaoh’s daughter.

Moses grew up in the Egyptian court, but he always felt a kinship with his people, the Israelites, who were slaves in Egypt. When he saw an Egyptian beating an Israelite slave, he killed the Egyptian and had to flee for his life.

Moses lived in exile for many years until he had a vision from God telling him to go back to Egypt and lead his people out of slavery. With the help of his brother Aaron, Moses convinced the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go.

The Pharaoh soon regretted his decision and sent his army after Moses and the Israelites. But Moses parted the Red Sea, allowing his people to escape while the Egyptian army was drowned.

The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue, are a set of biblical principles relating to ethics and worship, which play a fundamental role in Judaism and Christianity. The commandments include instructions to worship only God, to honour one’s parents, and to keep the sabbath day holy, as well as prohibitions against murder, theft, adultery and perjury. Different religious groups follow different traditions for interpreting and numbering them.

The Ten Commandments are recognized as a moral code by Jews, Christians and Muslims. They first appear in the Book of Exodus 20:1-17 (written c. 1445–1440 BCE)and have been interpreted differently by different religions.

David and Goliath

David was a shepherd boy who tended his father’s sheep. One day, a giant named Goliath came out and challenged the Israelites to send someone to fight him. When no one else would, David stepped up and said he would fight the giant.

David defeats Goliath

David was a young shepherd boy who tended his father’s Sheep in the fields of Bethlehem. One day, while David was out in the field, he heard the noise of a great army. The army belonged to the Philistines, and they were at war with Israel. The Philistines had a giant warrior named Goliath, who was over nine feet tall! Every day, Goliath would come out and challenge the Israelites to send someone to fight him. If anyone fought Goliath and won, then the Philistines would become slaves to the Israelites. If Goliath won, then the Israelites would become slaves to the Philistines.

No one in Israel was brave enough to fight Goliath, so David’s oldest brother, Eliab, went out to fight him. However, God told David that Eliab was not the right man for the job.

At that moment, David’s father, Jesse, sent him out to take food to his brothers who were fighting with the army. When David arrived at the battle scene, he saw Goliath and heard him mocking God and challenging the Israelites.

David was angry that Goliath was disrespecting God in this way, so he asked King Saul if he could go and fight Goliath himself. Saul was hesitant at first because David was just a boy and Goliath was a giant warrior. However, David assured Saul that God would help him win the battle.

Saul agreed to let David fight Goliath, so he gave him his own armor to wear into battle. However, David wasn’t used to wearing armor and it made him feel uncomfortable and weighed him down. So instead of wearing Saul’s armor into battle, David chose five smooth stones from a nearby stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. He also grabbed his sling that he used to keep foxes away from his sheep flock.

With his sling and stones in hand, David approached Goliath confidently knowing that God would help him win the battle. When Goliath saw how small David was in comparison to him, he laughed at David and told him that he would be eaten by birds after he killed him!

But David dug one of his stones out of his bag and placed it into his sling. Then he swung it around quickly and let go—the stone hit Goliath right in between his eyes! The giant fell over dead instantly!

Everyone on both sides of the battle were astonished at what had happened—a small boy had defeated a giant warrior with just a few sling shots! King Saul asked David what had happened when he killed such a large opponent with one small stone? And here is what David said:

David becomes king

Saul reigned for forty years. At the end of that time, he appointed his son David to be the commander of his army.

While David was at Saul’s side, fighting against Israel’s enemies, he became very popular with everyone. But one day, while David was playing his harp for Saul, the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and David had to go.

As time went on, Saul became more and more jealous of David. Eventually, Saul tried to kill him with a spear, but David escaped.

Saul chased David from place to place, but David was always one step ahead of him.

Finally, when all of Saul’s attempts to kill David had failed, Saul died in battle. After Saul’s death, David became the King of Israel.
