Old Testament stories page

The Old Testament has so many exciting stories of the lives of people who are not so different to us once you get past the cultural differences. 

There are also some exciting links with the New Testament which would not exist without it. 

Finding good ideas for presenting many of the Old Testament stories is not too hard. This page aims to focus on helping leaders to take their group into the stories in more depth, seeing the characters as real people with problems much like ours.

Many of these are also featured elsewhere under a theme.
