Stories by my Friends

Here a few stories from the Bible as told by my friends. They were all told to a live audience of children in Schools across the UK many from my home town of Cardiff. I hope you enjoy them.

Mark's Gospel CartoonBible by Bible Society Australia

Cartoon Bible have created a cartoon version of the Bible that is easy for kids of all ages to watch. We will as much as possible be using straight Bible text without providing too much explanation, just cos we reckon that the Bible is quite well written!

 

The stories will be animated with a separate narration track added at the end, so hopefully we can have the stories translated into many languages. 

 

The team that created the cartoons are Australian and we are aiming at an Australian audience, but we hope you enjoy them wherever you are in the world. And yes, we hope this inspires you to read the original stories in the Bible.

Noah Part 4 - The Rainbow & the Promise

(Genesis 8.20-9.17)

Noah did a strange thing.



At least it would seem very strange to us today.

The ark was safely on dry ground again. A few minutes before, it was filled with growling, barking, honking, purring animals. Now the door was wide open and the giant boat sat on a mountain top, all empty and quiet.

All the animals had rushed out the door to fill the earth again.

So what was Noah doing?

He was picking up rocks.

He was so thankful to be alive, he was going to build an altar to God. So Noah piled up the rocks to build a fire on them. Then he took the best of some special animals he had kept aside, killed them, and burned them on the altar. This was a sacrifice Noah offered to God to thank him for saving his life.

It might seem like a strange thing to do.

It couldn’t have been an easy thing to do either. But that’s what people did in those long ago days. That way they would know that dealing with God is a very serious thing.

God was pleased with Noah’s sacrifice. But most of all, God was pleased that Noah was truly thankful. 

And so God made this promise to Noah,

“Never again will I destroy the world with a flood.

I make this covenant with you and with all creatures.

From this day on,
there will always come a time for planting,
and a time for gathering up what was planted.

Day will always follow night,
the warm days of summer
will always follow
the cold and snow of winter,
as long as the earth shall be."


God knew that there is something inside each of us that tries to keep us from doing what is right. That is what causes all the trouble in the world. 

God also knew that one day he would send his Son to save us from that. God saved Noah and his family to show us that he has the power to save us all, and one day bring us to a new life with him in heaven.

So God blessed Noah and his family. He told them to have many children and fill the earth with people again. He gave them the plants and the animals for food. And he made people the boss of everything on earth (Think of it this way. You might have a pet dog or a cat. There aren’t any dogs who have pet people!).

And then God said to Noah, "Look up in the sky."

Noah looked up. The storm clouds were drifting away, the bright sun was shining against Noah's back. And against the dark grey sky, God made a brilliant rainbow appear. God said to Noah,

“You see, I have set my rainbow in the sky. This will be the sign of the covenant I have made with you and all creatures, never again to destroy the earth by a flood. It will always remind us of the promise between you and me.”

So, the next time you see a rainbow, think of Noah and the flood. Remember that God loves you, and that no matter how bad the storm, there will always come a bright new day.

That is God's promise, and God always keeps his promises.

On Starry Night

(Genesis 12.1-5, Genesis 15.1-5)
Have you ever tried to count all the stars in the sky?
Many years after the time of Noah there was a man named Abram.

Abram was a good man who owned many sheep and cattle. He lived with his wife Sarai in the land of Haran. But he had no children.

One day, God came to Abram. Whether it was in a vision, or in a dream we don't know for sure. But God did come to Abram and He said to him,

“Abram! I want you to pack up all your things and leave your home!

“I want you to go to the land I will give you. I promise that I will bless you, and make your family great. I will be with you in all you do, and because of you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Wow! That was quite a promise!

But a scary one too. It meant that Abram would have to leave the place he knew and go to a place he didn't know. He would have to trust God that everything would be okay.

But that's just what Abram did. 

Abram took his wife Sarai and his brother Lot. They packed up everything they owned in the land of Haran and moved to the land of Canaan - that was the land that God was going to lead him to. It couldn't have been an easy move to make. Abram was 75 years old when God told him to pack up everything he owned and leave his home - and if you look at a map, Canaan is a long way away from Haran! 

And then... 

One warm starry night

...many years later, Abram was resting in his tent after a hard day’s work. People lived in tents back in those days because they had to move from place to place to find food for their many sheep and cattle.

It was a night like any other night... until God appeared.

This must have been a bit of a surprise! And maybe more than a little bit scary.

But God said to Abram, “Do not be afraid! I am your defender! I promise that I will give you a great reward.” 

But Abram said, “What kind of reward? I don't even have any children!”

And then God took Abram out beneath the starry sky. “Look up at the stars in the sky,” God said. “You will have a son. He will have children, and his children will have children, and they will have more children, and one day they will be as many as the stars in the sky.”

Abram said, "How can this be? I am old!"

But God had made a promise to Abram. God promised Abram that he would have children, and from him a great nation would come. God promised that they would live in the land that God had given them. And God promised that because of Abram all people on earth would be blessed.

And God always keeps his promises.

Abram believed God's promise, and Abram's faith pleased God. It was Abram's faith in God and his promise that made things right between Abram and God. That is an important thing to remember!



Before God even started to make the world, he had a plan. His plan is for us to know how good he is, and how much he loves us, and that one day we will come to live with him forever in heaven.

This was the beginning of God’s plan...
