Stories in the Bible

There are so many events that took place in the Bible and they all have their own significance. I have many favorite stories in the Bible, so I decided to share some of my own. 


Adam and Eve

This story is a far too good one. I think everyone has heard a version of this one at least once in their life. The story that I have been told all my life and have researched was the story that started life. 

God created two innocent humans named Adam and Eve. He put the two in the Garden of Eden to take care of and nurture the Garden. They were both in love with each other and innocent until one was taken by temptation and the other by blind love. Eve was in the Garden when she came upon an evil serpent at the tree of knowledge of good and evil which they were not allowed to eat. Eve fell into temptation when the serpent convinced her to eat the fruit from that tree and Adam, being in love with Eve, fell into the temptation too. After they both sinned for the first time, they were banished from the Garden of Eden and that is how we were all created. To know good and evil was from Adam and Eve. 


Noah’s Ark

The story of Noah’s Ark is one of my favorites because it really shows me what the meaning of putting all your trust into God is. 

God wants to punish the sin of mankind but he doesn’t want to end it. So, He calls upon Noah and his family to build an ark that will hold one male and female of every species for when the flood comes. God made it rain for 40 days and 40 nights to cleanse the Earth He created from sin and evil. After the flood, God promised Noah that He would flood the Earth again.

 “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth. So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on earth.”

Samson and Delilah

Samson and Delilah is one of the least talked about but it’s a good one. Samson was a big man with long locks of hair and was bound to never cut a piece of his hair. His hair would give him strength. Then there was Delilah, a sort of beauty who wasn’t on the inside. 

Samson and Delilah fell “in love” with each other and all was well. Until Delilah was bribed to entrap Samson and seduce him into telling her why he is so strong. When Samson cried out that his hair was his strength and it was to never be cut, Delilah wore him out until he fell asleep. Once he was asleep, she cut a lock of hair and his strength disappeared. Samson was attacked and held by his enemies until his very last moment when he used all his might to pull down the temple. 


There are more stories I would like to share with you but here’s a sneak peek.
