As a child, you may have heard some common bible stories from a children’s bible. When you get older, we should take some time to revisit these classic stories to understand a little more of what the bible has to say, explore the story a little deeper, and understand these well-known bible characters. Jesus shows up in the Old Testament, let’s explore some childhood passages together while we learn more about Abraham, Samson, and Jonah.
