Bible 2.jpg


Students will discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation--and at the center of their own story too! The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the story beneath all the stories in the Bible. At the center of all is a baby, the child upon whom everything will depend. From Noah, to Moses, to the great King David---every story points to him. He is the missing piece to the puzzle---the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. Students will learn about stories from the New Testament and how they fit into God's perfect plan.
