Top 10 Most Famous Bible Stories
Coming from Indian back ground I know what Indians believe in for me the best I know when I received Jesus as my Saviour and My Lord. He is the only who gave His life to us now sitting at he right hand of our Father in Heaven. He is not controlling but our choice to receive Him or reject Him. My family and I are so safe in His Arms, He is our everything and we lack nothing, almost a year now I have lost my husband and Jesus has supplied all our needs and Jesus is with us daily. Thank you Jesus. Only through Jesus we can go to Heaven.
This story was one of my most favorite stories. Jesus died on the cross to save us from sin. He was being beaten and he did not have any strength left. He also promised that he would come back and would take us to his wonderful home which is heaven. I believed in his story and I felt that Jesus is the greatest of them all. Have you heard the story of Jesus Crucified?
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.
Yet even still it's not known widely enough! I find it lame how some people are touched and get emotional over the heroic deeds of people in history, amazing book characters (I.E. sydney Carton), but don't believe or feel grateful for the ultimate sacrifice and gift.
The story of David and Goliath tells about courage and bravery.
David is a shepherd boy but it's awesome to see killing a lion, a bear, and even the Giant (Goliath) himself.
If you are David, you must face your fears and you must overcome it.
But if you are Goliath, then you are the fear of anyone else like bullies do.
Always chose David.
LOVE THIS STORY! Honestly I love reading this story over and over again! It is really a good topic on how you can just let go of fears and never listen to people if the try to discourage you. Along with use what makes you happy! I stead of using all the armor and sword he used his speacial sling shot! TRUE STORY! Read it ifyou have a chance! :) God Bless You!
A great story about standing up to bullies. No matter how great and powerful your enemies are, as long as you've got God with you, you can overcome any battle.
This story makes me realize that no matter how big our problems are, if we will just believe and hold on to God, we can surely overcome those challenges.
Nativity is best known story on the planet, especially because it is associated with the best known holiday of Christmas.
Matthew 2:1 Three wise man from the east came to worship the baby-Jesus. They came from India.
What story in all of time could or would ever be better than the birth of our Lord and Savior; NONE.
I love this story it is such a good story for children and my two little sisters love it!
This Story shows that if you surrender to God, and face the consequences, that God is still the same then, as he was yesterday, today, and forever. HE IS LOVE! And he sent help to Jonah, and it was a hard time in the whale, but in the end God left him on just the right path. But that does not mean that there would not be future challenges.

I like this story because it teaches us to show mercy and trust in God and not to run away from God.
Veggie Tales helped me understand this story and how helpful the final message is to me.
This is probably the best story for children, all kids understand.
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.
At first, Adam and Eve had a happy life together with God. They were obedient to God until Eve became distracted by a snake. A snake told a lie telling them that Adam and Eve can rule for themselves instead of YHWH. Adam and Eve sinned after eating the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. Cain killed Abel. Adam and Eve sinned by abandoning the Lord YHWH after eating from the tree fruit resulting in their death.
That even in a time of punishment, God still loves us, and like any good father, he clothed them in robes he made and led them out of the garden, but he stayed by them, as a family, he suffered to see his children hurt, but he had to punish or Satan would be winning on every move we make. So we need to remember that when we mess up, it is only a scar with us during a failed battle, but God already won the war!

I love this story! Was probably the first one I had read! I find that the creation of the world is a mesmerising story. It shows that God still loves us, even when we do the wrong things! I like imagining how the world was created, it's cool.
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.
It also shows us that our best defense against bad stuff is our one and only saviour from evil, Christ.
One of my favorite stories.
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 Crucifixion of Jesus was amazing, but the story could not be complete without him rising from the dead, when he has risen, he had 100% proved to the people that have not seen all his miracles that he IS A TRUE & AMAZING GOD AMONG MEN! And if he had not came back after three days, we would have thought that he was just a very loving guy with tall-tales written on him, but him coming back proved that he is real and that if He can turn water to wine, our piousness tongue (James 3:8) only he, not being of man, can turn it to honey, and if he can walk on water, he can walk over the things we fear. He loves us. The Crucifixion & Resurrection of Jesus Christ is never a Bible story, but WORLD HISTORY!

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.
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.
There is scientific proof that man did NOT evolve from cavemen or from apes. Go to the book of Genesis from the Bible, and look how the first man and woman were created. Humans are made from dust.
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.
Makes more sense than evolution, it just contains a lot of explosions. How can explosions create something when it's the opposite of creating?
I'v just written a new children's picture book, titled, "Mommy, who made Earth. ? I believe this should be the very first story of earth and life itself. Look for my publication soon online, in book stores and via e-books for Christain Sunday School ipads and Nooks.
Joseph is tells to his brothers realize their mistakes. But although Joseph turned out to be in a high position in Egypt, he did not look down to his family.
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 story was sick. Jacob bedded like 3-- no, 4 women-- Leah(Rachel's older sister), 2 handmaids and Rachel just to have those 12 children. I don't know why Jacob agreed to have children with the 2 handmaids, but it was sick
So I'm an Athiest through and through but I decided that I wanted to find out more about the Christian religion. I'm not really understanding the moral of this story- Jessica Ridley (12)
Why do we tell this story to little kids though? This is probably the most tragic event in human history!
This tells us that whenever we do something bad, God will do anything in order for us to save us from sin.
I glad to see this story and I used to see this when I was a kid. it remind me my childhood memory.
Read the bible just to read this story. Reminds me of Escaping The Giant Wave.
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.
At the time God tested Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, Abraham showed what perfect love for God is. For me, Abraham was the perfect model in the whole Genesis.
I agree totally with the description it is one of the best I've ever heard and his honesty and loyalty love to god is respective.
It literally shows us that we can move mountains with just the faith of a mustard seed.
I cry reading this story, but they are tears of Joy! We can walk right over our fears if we keep our eyes on Jesus, and not look back, can also look at the lady that turned to a pillar of salt.

It is just a cool story
I love this story
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.
One of the best and most universal stories than can teach troubled young people to improve their lives, communities, and personalities without forcing their religions on unexpecting others.
I like this one because it teaches us to help our enemies.
Luke 22! The Lord revealed that to me today
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.
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.
Moses is an Egyptian prince who turned out to be a Hebrew who wanted to let other Hebrews/Israelites free from slavery. It's awesome to see that he make the Sea turned in to half and walk to Promise Land. I guess the so-called Pharoah taught his lesson about his cruelty.
Moses did a lot of miracles in order to free all slaves in Egypt. Even though Moses was not a good speaker, God did everything in order to help Moses finish his task.
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
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
Worst story ever?... Well that sounds like the opinion of a man. A man, who most definitely wasn't there when the allmighty laid the foundations of the earth.
I love JOB... gives perspective of what true faith in God means and what testing is actually like!
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.
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.
He was in the worst place he could have been (the hog pen) and found God there.
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.
This event is remained until today because of the Holy Communion. It tells us that the time Jesus was betrayed, He still forgive everyone not just on Last Supper, but also on His resurrection.
This should be 2
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.
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."
Good also for the children. To know how to communicate.
This story is inspiring as it could teach young students/children how to listen and obey olders.
The famous story of erotic love of the King for his neighbor's wife...and dear Uriah's (a Hittite) faithfulness to his King. The result? Uriah's death. King David's fall. A ruined relationship. And four of King David's sons die in some form of sexual intrigue.
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.

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!
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!
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!
Such a powerful story of God but look if you read verse 18 from NIV you wouldn't believe what those boys would say 18 from NIV -Even if He doesn't we are not bowing down! Can you believe that? Isn't that awesome how those boys said they ain't gonna bow
I like this story because I can relate to it...
I'm not even religious, and I love this story.
They brought the newborn savior frankincense and myrrh. That alone is reason to revere this tale. If three old guys gave my newborn son gifts like that, I'd dance, sing, and give thanks to the spirits in the sky! The wise men kick ass!
