List Of Bible Stories From Genesis To Revelation
If you are looking for a list of Bible stories from Genesis to Revelation, this is the place. We have listed some of the most popular stories from the Old Testament and New Testament here. The list includes summaries and references so that they can be easily referenced in future studies or when preparing sermons.
In the beginning, God created the universe and then he created the Earth. The Sun, Moon and stars were formed as well. He also created many kinds of animals, birds, fish and insects.
God then made a man out of dust (Adam) and placed him in Eden where he had everything he needed to live there forever. God also made a woman (Eve) out of Adam’s rib bone so that they could both have children together one day.
Adam And Eve Genesis 2-3
In the beginning, God created Adam and Eve. As the first human beings, they were made in God’s image and given a beautiful garden to live in. They were told not to eat from a certain tree because if they did it would cause them great harm. They disobeyed God by eating from this tree and as punishment were driven from their garden home by angels with flaming swords (Genesis 3:24).
Here is how these bible stories are related to each other:
- The creation of Adam and Eve is described in Genesis 1-2.
- Their disobedience against God is described in Genesis 2-3.
Cain And Abel Genesis 4
- Cain and Abel were the first two sons of Adam and Eve.
- Cain killed his brother out of jealousy over God’s favoritism towards Abel (Genesis 4:5).
- God was displeased with Cain’s actions, so He banished him from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 4:16).
Noah Genesis 6-8
Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time. He walked with God. Noah preached righteousness and warned the people of coming judgment for their sins. The people of his day were wicked, so God decided to destroy the earth with a flood. Noah built an ark and saved himself, his family and a pair of every kind of animal on earth (Genesis 6:9-22; 7:1-10).
Tower of Babel Genesis 11
The Tower of Babel, also known as the Tower of Babel or simply Babel, is a biblical structure in the Book of Genesis that was built with the intention of reaching heaven. Humans were working together to build a tower to God so that they could “make us a name” (Genesis 11:4). However, because they were dispersed around the world by God due to this act (Genesis 11:8), it never happened.
The tower was constructed in the land of Shinar, near where Babylon would later be built. It was described as being “of brick” (Genesis 11:3), which would have made it an impressive structure for its time. The people who lived at this time spoke one language and had roots from Noah’s sons Shem, Ham and Japheth; however there wasn’t any indication that this was related to why they decided to build such an ambitious structure together.
Abraham and Isaac Genesis 22
The story of Abraham and Isaac is an event that represents God’s mercy. Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac, but he obeyed God nonetheless. At the last second, God provided a ram for the sacrifice instead of allowing Abraham to kill his son. The story demonstrates how faithful we can be even when we’re called to do something difficult or painful.
Joseph Genesis 37-50
Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers and taken to Egypt. He becomes a slave in Potiphar’s house, where he catches the eye of Potiphar’s wife. When she tries to seduce him, Joseph refuses her advances and is falsely accused of rape. He is thrown into prison but interprets dreams for two of his fellow prisoners that predict when Pharaoh will have a dream about plenty or famine.
In the book of Exodus, we see how God freed the Israelites from being slaves in Egypt. He sent Moses to lead them out of Egypt, but they had to wander in the desert for 40 years before entering the land of Canaan.
The story begins with a man named Joseph who was sold into slavery by his brothers and thrown into a pit by wicked men. In that pit he was raised up to become viceroy over all Egypt! Joseph’s family later came down to live with him in that land and settled there for 400 years (Genesis 15:13).
In Exodus 1–15 Moses led these people out of captivity after 400 years as bondservants (Exodus 1:11). They wandered through Sinai Desert for 40 years before entering Canaan where they took possession of their promised land from its previous inhabitants (Numbers 13-14).
Ten Commandments Exodus 19-20
The Ten Commandments were given to Moses by God on Mount Sinai. During the Exodus, Moses was given the first two commandments, but he did not receive the remaining eight until after his return from Mount Sinai.
The Ten Commandments are considered by most Christians as being a summary of God’s law for mankind. They are often referred to as “The Law of Moses” because they were given to him by God through an angelic messenger in Exodus 19:18-20 and 20:1-17.
Joshua and the Battle Of Jericho Joshua 6
In this story, Joshua is a general in the army of Israel. The book of Joshua describes his role in leading the Israelites in the conquest of Canaan.
After the death of Moses (Numbers 27:18), God tells Moses’ servant Joshua to lead the people into Canaan, which he does. After entering Canaan, Joshua sends two spies into Jericho to gather information on how best to conquer it. When they return with their information, he consults with Yahweh and decides that they will march around Jericho once each day for six days and then seven on day seven. On day eight, when they are just outside of town at dawn’s first light (which happens early due to it being winter) they are instructed by Yahweh to shout so loud that all within earshot will hear them clearly – even those inside their homes where windows have been shut tight against daytime cold must surely be able to hear such a sound!
Gideon Judges 7
Gideon was a judge of Israel, who lived during the time when the people of Israel were under oppression from the Midianites.
He was a very humble man, who did not believe that he could defeat his enemies without God’s help. Gideon also trusted in God and felt confident that if he would follow His commands everything would turn out well for him.
Gideon was a man of action; he did not sit back and wait for things to happen but rather took action and fought for what he believed in! He did what needed to be done despite having doubts at times about whether or not he could do it alone (Judges 6:12).
The book of Ruth tells the story of a Moabite woman named Ruth who married into a Jewish family. A widow, she left her homeland with Naomi, her mother-in-law, and went to Bethlehem to find work. While working in the fields of Boaz, a wealthy landowner, she met Boaz’s relative Elimelech and fell in love with him. He died soon after they married, leaving Ruth alone with their boy Mahlon (their other children had already died). After this tragedy Elimelech’s brother Charol went back to his hometown Moab but Naomi chose to stay behind in Bethlehem with Ruth because she said God would provide for them there through someone else named Boaz whom she knew would show kindness toward them since he was related by marriage through Elimelech and Mahlon’s father Naomi said he was kindhearted man so she knew if anyone could help them get through this difficult time it would be him
1 Kings 3-11
Solomon’s temple was constructed with a lot of help from God. Without God’s hand, it would not have been possible to build the temple as quickly or as well as it was done. The same is true for us in our own lives: without God, we cannot accomplish what He has planned for us.
Rehoboam became king after Solomon died, but he did not lead his people well. When Rehoboam asked the people what they wanted him to do about taxes (which were paid when someone bought land), they told him: “Make light work of them” (2 Chronicles 10:8). This meant that they didn’t want to pay much tax on their land purchases because they felt like they were already working hard enough!
But instead of listening to the people’s requests at this time and making things easier for them by lowering taxes even more than he already had done—and thus making them happy—Rehoboam did just the opposite by increasing taxes still further! So now we see how sin works against us; when we try doing what seems good in our own eyes instead of trusting God fully with our lives and trusting Him for everything in life (even things like taxes!), then sin brings trouble upon us which ends up hurting both ourselves and others around us—like when Rehoboam made everyone pay too many taxes on land purchases after promising beforehand that he wouldn’t do so! That led directly into Jeroboam’s rebellion against him later on down the road…
David and Goliath 1 Samuel 17
The story of David and Goliath is one of the best-known stories from the Bible. It tells how young shepherd David defeated a giant named Goliath when he was just a boy.
In this story, two armies were fighting each other: Israel and the Philistines. The Philistines thought they would easily win because they had many more soldiers than Israel did; but they didn’t know that God would help His people win!
Goliath was a huge man who wore armor. He came out in front of his army and said to King Saul (the leader of Israel): “If anyone wants to fight me, let them come out here!” Then he threw rocks at them!
Solomon 1 Kings 3-11
Solomon is the third king of Israel. He was the son of David, who was also a great king. Solomon is famous for his wisdom and great building projects such as the Temple in Jerusalem and cities like Tadmor (which became Palmyra). Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines; he loved many things that were not pleasing to God, including idols which led to him being unable to build the temple because it violated God’s commands not to make any graven images or likenesses of anything in heaven or on earth.
Elijah 1 Kings 17-19 and 2 Kings 1–2
Elijah was a prophet in the Old Testament. He challenged King Ahab and Queen Jezebel, who had been persecuting the prophets of God. Elijah was taken up to heaven in a chariot of fire when he died, but his successor Elisha succeeded him as prophet and miracle worker.
Jonah and the Fish Jonah 2-4
Even though Jonah was released from the belly of the whale, he was still angry with God for releasing him. Jonah went out to trample on Assyria and Nineveh. He told them that God would destroy them both in 40 days’ time. However, they repented and God did not destroy any city or nation as long as they were obedient to Him.
Daniel In The Lions’ Den Daniel 6
Daniel was thrown into a pit of lions. The king said that if Daniel was still alive after the lions had eaten him, then he would be put to death. But God shut the mouths of all the lions so that they did not hurt Daniel.
Daniel was thrown into a den of lions. King Darius ordered him to be cast into the lion’s den because he would not worship an idol that King Darius had set up in his garden. God shut the mouth of all those wicked beasts and they did not harm Daniel at all; he was saved by God!
Birth of Jesus Matthew 1-2, Luke 2
The birth of Jesus is one of the most famous stories from the Bible. It’s a story that we’re all familiar with and love to tell. As you read through these verses, look for what God did in this story to show his love for us and how he protected, guided, provided for and favored Mary and Joseph.
Here are some story summaries from the Bible
Genesis 1-2: God creates the world by speaking it into existence. He creates Adam and Eve, the first humans, from dust and breathes life into them. After creating Adam and Eve, God places them in a garden called Eden where they can live forever if they do not eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. A serpent tempts Eve to eat from this tree so that she will be like God (3:5). When Adam finds out about what happened he eats too because he does not want to lose his wife (3:6). Both are banished from Eden due his disobedience to God’s commands (3:22-24). There are many other stories in this section including those about Noah’s Ark which saved his family from floods that covered Earth before destroying everything else on its surface (6-8), Abraham who struggles with faith while trying figure out how many people would inherit eternal life based on their works alone without any help from God whatsoever because he didn’t know anything about Jesus yet at this point (12-15), Isaac who gets tricked into marrying Rebecca instead of her sister whom he thought was dead when really she had just been pretending all along because she wanted him for herself (24)…
