Jonah and the Whale
This Bible story explains the life of the prophet Jonah. Jonah’s relationship with God was almost comical but little did he know the lives of the Ninevites (people from Nineveh) were at stake. God asked Jonah to go to a place called Nineveh to spread his word. The Ninevites were quite evil in their ways and Jonah knew this.Unwilling to help, Jonah attempted to hid from God and soon he found out God was not happy with him. After a little guidance from God, Jonah went to Nineveh and managed to turn around the lives of the Ninevites and introduce them to his God.
Battle of Jericho and Joshua
After the death of Moses, God chose Joshua to be the leader of the Israelites. Joshua and the Israelites set out to conquer the land of Canaan following God’s instruction. Joshua sent two spies into Jericho to find out about the king’s army and they were hidden by a woman Rehab. God had a strange plan for the battle of Jericho. He told Joshua to have the armed men march around the city once each day, for six days. The priests were to carry the ark, blowing trumpets, but the soldiers were to keep silent. On the seventh day, the group of Israelites walked around the city walls seven times and gave a big shout and the walls collapsed. The Israelites rushed in and conquered the city. Rehab and her family were spared.

God Creates the World
In the beginning there was…nothing. Then God said, “Let there be light!” Then there was light.
God put water into the sea and air in the sky. He also made dry land so that beautiful flowers and tall trees could grow.
God filled the sea with fish, the sky with birds, and the earth with every kind of creature.
Then God made the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve.
On day seven God rested. That is how God created the world.
Adam and Eve Leave the Garden
God put Adam and Eve in a beautiful garden called Eden.
“Eat anything you like,” God said, “except the fruit on that tree.”
But a snake slithered up to Eve.
“Why not eat the fruit on that tree?” he hissed.
Adam and Eve both ate some of the fruit and God sent them out of the garden of Eden.
Adam and Eve felt very, very said.
One day God spoke to Noah, “Very soon I am going to flood the world. I want you to build an Ark to keep your family and two of every animal safe..”
So Noah and his sons build a huge ark and marched the animals in two by two.
As God had promised, the flood came. Noah, his family and all the animals were safe inside.
After Forty days, the rain stopped and the water levels went down.
“Now leave the ark.” said God.
After the flood, God sent a rainbow as a promise to never flood the earth again.

She named him Moses, and brought him up as an Egyptian prince.
Moses and the King of Egypt
When Moses grew up, he stood before the King of Egypt.
“God has told me to free his people,” Moses said to the king.
“I am not letting the Israelites go free,” said the king.
