We have compiled all the stories of the Bible into six story groups. Each group captures a period of time in the Bible that is represented by a key person or theme. These groups should help give context to each story and where it falls within scripture.
We have also included headings within the story menu to help give even better context for each story and where it falls within scripture.
Every story includes the scripture references that were used to craft the story. Click on the scripture reference to go directly to that passage of the Bible. Below the scripture reference is the story transcript. Click “continue reading” to see the rest of this transcript.

Call of Abraham
Genesis 11:26 – 12:20
When Abram was 75 years old, the LORD said, “Abram, I want you to leave your family and country and go to a place I have selected for you. I’ll make you a nation and your name will be great. I’ll bless you, and I’ll also bless everyone else who blesses you. And I’ll curse anyone who curses you. All the families of the earth will be blessed because of you.”
Now you can watch or listen to the story being told by a professional storyteller! We even include story insights from John Walsh, the creator of BibleTelling. The insights John shares help give even more meaning and understanding to the story.

We’ve even included maps for every story to show you where the story took place. Some stories just happen in one city or location, while others involve detailed routes and journeys through several cities and regions. We hope the maps help add a sense of place and bring the stories even more to life.
