Top 10 Most Famous Bible Stories


The Top Ten

1 The Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ

Jesus Crist our Lord died on the cross for our sins and three days later he rose again in heaven.

Christ Saved us all from our sins, by His Cross & Resurrection.

Definitely the most popular, because it is what people believe in when they believe in Jesus Christ.

This is the best story of the Bible because it explains how Jesus was hit and beaten with sticks just to save us, we are misrable sinners who should be worshiping God every second of our lives. This story helps us understand why he died for us, saved us, and why we will be brought to be with Him in Heaven one day.

5 Adam and Eve

This is definitely the most popular. This was how humans were made. Not only that, but it's at the beginning of the book so if you read it all you get the story of Adam and Eve. Most people know that Eve got tricked by a serpent and ate the fruit. There is this musical called children of Eden that I was in, and the first story was about god creating the world, but the next was about Adam and Eve. In the musical my favorite part is when Adam sings "A world without you". This is the most popular bible story.

Most popular, they created humans.

i LOve it

This is such a wonderful story of haow the world was created and its hard to believe that devil decided to use eve as a sample to get them both to do the wrong thing

6 Daniel In the Lion's Den

This one is a good one. It shows us that we should trust in God and any dangers can be overcome. These lions were bloodthirsty and extremely dangerous yet Daniel and his friends survived an extremely hot oven while Daniel alone slept with the lions without any harm. In the end, the villains got what was coming to them. - Daviddv0601

I love this heroic hero I mean really Daniel prays to The Lord just like God asked him to Darius can't sleep because of his friend Daniel he was shocked Daniel said long live the king God sent his angels to rescue me

This story teaches us about trusting in the Lord Jesus

It also shows us that our best defense against bad stuff is our one and only saviour from evil, Christ.

7 The Creation of the Heavens and the Earth

I'm a Christian and I can comply my beliefs with the Big Bang theory and evolution. I don't see any opposition, because the Bibke wasn't meant to be believed from word to word, it has a more symbolic meaning. - Alkadikce

In the beginning... you shall begin to learn all about the Old and the New Testament. - Daviddv0601

8 The Resurrecton of Jesus

I think our Lord's resurrection should be at the top. Also that maybe they should be rearranged as in at the top of the list. All stories in the Bible are great, because they are from our Lord. I do however understand the words, most popular stories. You left out Daniel in the Lions Den.

Even though the birth of Christ is widely celebrated, without his suffering, death and subsequent resurrection we would not be saved and eternal punishment is what we would be facing. Because of his overcoming death and resurrection we have eternal life. All we need is faith in Jesus Christ as our savior for our sins. All other accounts point to our need for a savior and faith.

The story of the resurrection of Jesus is by far the most important. It is because of the death burial and resurrection that we have forgiveness for our sin.

This is where the foundation of Christianity is. Satan caused death in the Garden of Eden, where God meant human being to have everlasting life. The resurrection of Jesus is the action of regaining that lost benefit God granted us.

9 Joseph And His Amazing Technicolour

Not a Christian but I liked the musical I went to see it years ago and Jesus Christ was umm school trips.
For years I thought Jonah and the Whale was just a song lol till I found out the story.

Stunning just stunning reminds of Fernandeo Torres

I love the story... even when other people treat you in a negative way, as long as you have Christ in your life... everything will turn out right in time... God never forsake his children...

I just love this story, it is so inspiring. Also I am a sucker for reveal stories, so when Joseph reveals himself in Egypt is definitely my favorite!

The Contenders

11 Abraham and Isaac

This is a very great story because of the unfailing faith of the father, Abraham, to God and the obedience of the son to the Father. Nowadays, there are lots of family problems in every family in every conner of the world and it mostly happens when the parents are not faithful to God and to each other then, they cannot have any respect from their children, and when the children are not obedient to their parents. Most of us today tend to forget that God is in the centre of our family life.

12 Jesus Walks On Water

It is just a cool story

It literally shows us that we can move mountains with just the faith of a mustard seed.

I love this story

Love this story

13 The Good Samaritan

a bril story and yet true

Amazing way to teach others to be good. It shows what helping others can really bring you blessings. We must not only think of our self and walk away but instead lend a helping hand. In doing so you shall receive a blessing.

Luke 22! The Lord revealed that to me today

14 Moses

Honestly, I am surprised this isn't higher. It is a very emotional and graphic story of the Bible. Moses became a massive heroic Biblical figure and with the help of God, he freed all the Jews from slavery in Egypt. It is one of my favourite Bible stories. The ten plagues were very graphic to imagine but God had to do it to force the Pharaoh, Ramesses, to let His people go. Let's also not forget the iconic opened water scene. To actually be there to witness the Red Sea being split open in half is a real wonder. - Daviddv0601

I think that this story is a fabulous and amazing story. It just has a so much in common with me. I don't know why but I love this story as I was A kid. It made me feel sorry for others and helped me understand others feelings. It also made me a very good friend.

The Exodus is without a doubt, the best story. Very heartwarming and an interesting story.

All humans were born to be free! 3500 years after and this story still resonates to the very foundations of humanity.

15 Job

I really like this story. I think that through Job's trials he is able to conquer the Devil and know that despite his troubles, he is blessed. Because of all that Job goes through, he is able to expand his understanding of staying true to the gospel and develops a stronger testimony. Claiming that God let Satan do things to Job because he was mean is wrong. God didn't let Satan do that, he needed Satan to do that to Job so Job could grow and realize his great faith in the gospel. This story is sad, but also very heartwarming and mind blowing. I can only think of one person that could go through this much and still stay true to the gospel, and even then, this isn't something as easy or simple as God allowing Satan to do bad stuff to Job. It isn't a punishment or a consequence either. This is a test given to Job by God, even if Satan is the one that took everything. God was testing Job to solidify his faith, testimony, belief, and trust in Heavenly Father and the gospel. This is an ...more

The story of Job teaches us that faith is separate from fortune.

Worst story ever!? God says to the devil his enemy fine do what you want to him but don't kill him Satan takes everything away from Job his children his cattle his sheep everything! God should've not done that God is the nice guy love kind good power helpful and those other names we call God but God lets Satan his evil enemy Do bad stuff to Job

I love when Jobs friends say to him God is punishing you because you did wrong Job said he didn't do anything wrong to deserve it but his friends say you should curse God and die but Job tells his friends that he is so innocent

16 The Prodigal Son

He was in the worst place he could have been (the hog pen) and found God there.

This is one of my favorite parables as it shows how even if someone steals, cheats, and sins upon God, God is always welcoming them back if they return. - ethanmeinster

This story gives hope to both the person caught up in the sin, and to those who are praying/hoping for them to come to their senses.

17 Joseph and His Brothers

I hate this Story

I love this story - what a powerful message

This story is amazing. I loved the Ben Affleck animated film and when I read the story, it was amazing. - Daviddv0601

Joseph I like you

18 Jesus Teaches His Disciples How to Pray

Matthew 6:9, 10

"You must pray, then, this way: Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth."

I think that this story is awesome because when I was little I thought that the disciples were Christians and that they should know how to pray.But then I asked myself is it really that hard to pray

I believe that praying is the important form of communication between man and God. I also believe it is imperative that we all learn to pray,so that we will have a connection to the Father.

Good also for the children. To know how to communicate.

20 The Last Supper

I love this story so much

This historical event is to remind the world of Christ' Love for His disciples and mankind. This final event He had with His disciples is a clear indication that God's plan would be fulfilled through Him.

Jesus was feeding them the most satisfying bread of all, him, he is all we need, just him and his divine blood.

21 Moses Receives the Ten Commandments

I like remember sabbath day holy

22 King David's Confession

I don't know this story so can someone tell me please


I think it is when David looked and took a woman that was not his, the husband died, so David confessed to God what he had done.

23 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

Just read and it touched my heart again

Another miracle performed from God! The boys get thrown into the fire but they stay faithful to Him and He rescues them from the fire!

I love this story! Talk about some powerful power and deliverance! Now who wouldn't like this story it talks about Gods powerful hand to protect his Children!

Nebuchadnezzar makes a statue of gold he said you're supposed bow down to it If you don't he'll put you in the fiery furnace! Everyone bowed except the three boys (S M and Ab) wouldn't bow to the idol this made Nebuchadnezzar very angry he demanded that the children bow to him or he will burn them!

28 The Parable of the Sower

powerful mirror as to what life can throw at us, and by continuing, eventually our seed will fall onto the good ground.
