Bible Stories for Adults
In reading some biblical websites, Bible dictionaries and commentaries, we see many of Bible stories discounted in some way. Mostly, writes make an attempt to explain God’s will as confusing or unfair. Or they deal with miracles done by God using physical explanations. It’s as though they don’t believe God exists or doesn’t have the ability to do a miracle. In this series, Bible Stories for Adults, we take a look at some Bible stories to see what God is driving at when he inspires Bible writers to share various events in both Testaments.
The Exodus – Bible Stories for Adults – 14
In the story of the Exodus, God has left us a remarkable, encouraging eyewitness account of a tremendous miracle that saved God’s people from death. All we have to do is believe it. Do you? Can you defend it to skeptics? In this series, *Bible Stories for Adults*, we provide information about the Exodus and other Bible stories that can bolster our faith.
Jonah and the Big Fish – Bible Stories for Adults – 13
This presentation is an explanation showing how to derive the biblical intent of the Bible story about Jonah. Many people today, including some who profess Christianity, don’t believe it happened. The debate is like noise that distracts us from what God is telling us in the biblical record.
Moses Bites the Bullet – Bible Stories for Adults – 012
This is Mount Nebo, where God let Moses view the promised land, his heart’s desire. After 40 years of faithful service, God did not let him cross the Jordan. Why not? What could this biblical event possibly have to do with our lives today?
Esau’s Birthright – Bible Stories for Adults 011
Esau, we are told in scripture, sold his birthright to his brother Jacob for some lentil stew. Modern people often don’t grasp the value of a birthright as it was in Esau’s day—just as Christians today don’t grasp the value of God’s birthright gift to all his children. That’s why the apostle explains this life-saving lesson to us in the New Testament.
Sacrificing Isaac – Bible Stories for Adults 010
A lot of people have heard about the Bible story where God tells Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac. At the same time, a lot of people have serious misgivings about what God did in this story. Never-the-less, God always has a reason that is our best interest. If we can grasp the message, it could save our eternal lives. Listen to this presentation to consider a deeper meaning.
The Last Laugh – Bible Stories for Adults 009

Is there anything we can learn from it? In fact, it has a lot to do with how God deals with all of us today. It’s a lesson on how to “carry on” with God.
The Call of Abraham – Bible Stories for Adults 008
One of the Bible stories that doesn’t get too much play is the call of Abraham. Interestingly, this story is one of the most important of all Scripture, and not that affects all our lives every day, know it or not. Not only does it show us how God has worked with human beings in time past, also about the way God works—His style, so to speak.
The Tower of Babel – Bible Stories for Adults 007
The tower of Babel is an ancient story that most people today completely misunderstand. They think it’s irrelevant to their life and to modern life in general, when in truth, Babel is a lesson for us today, perhaps more than any other generation, about relating successfully to God.
Noah’s Flood – Bible Stories for Adults 006
When some of us think of Noah’s flood, we think of cute cartoons of animals filing into an ark. It goes without saying there is a lot more to it than that. Besides the doubts some have about the logistics of the ark, what about the issue of God killing off his own children. Such a thought causes some to opine that God is a monster. That’s why we call it a Bible Story for Adults.
Cain and Abel – Bible Stories for Adults 005
The first four chapters of Genesis show us what society could have been and why it’s like it is now. They also show us how the world got the way it is now, what we can do about it in our own lives, and what God is going to do to fix it all in the end. The only problem for so many is believing what God says to us. Do you?
