The Story of the Bible

There are so many memorable stories in the Bible…Noah and the Flood, David and Goliath, Samson and Delilah, just to name a few. But there’s a lot to the Bible, and sometimes it can feel a bit daunting putting all the pieces together. We may know a particular story really well, but not necessary where it fits into the overall story of the Bible.

We hope that the diagram below helps to alleviate some of that confusion. On it, you will see a basic flow of the narrative from the Creation in Genesis 1 to the exile of the Israelites in 2 Kings 25. Not all of the stories are represented here, but we tried to pick the most significant ones that would guide you through the biblical narrative. And in the future, we will be adding to the diagram to capture the rest of the biblical story, including the events of the New Testament.

Do you want to know more about a particular story? Click on the story in the diagram and you’ll be taken to Lumina, a great website with all kinds of resources for biblical study. Each link will take you to that particular story in the Bible as well as links to relevant articles. Explore Lumina further to find even more resources.

Do you have questions about the Bible and want to talk to someone? Please contact Pastor Mike, and he’d be happy to meet with you to talk about the Bible, faith, church life…or just about anything you’d like to talk about!
