You can share the story of the Bible with others by drawing the pictures yourself.
Use the 15 simple pictures below to help you practice drawing the StoryBoards so you will be prepared to share the amazing story of God’s love for us with others – on a piece of paper, a napkin, a whiteboard, or whatever!
If you would like to draw more challenging versions of these pictures, check out the complex pictures in the grid under StoryBoard 15 below.
A picture of earth reminds us that God created the world and everyone and everything in it.
Sin entered the world when Adam & Eve ate a piece of fruit from the one forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden. The Bible doesn’t say what kind of fruit it was, so we draw an apple to represent whatever that fruit was.
A family tree is used to represent the family God chose to work through to eventually bless the entire world. The four people on the tree are Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.
This picture shows God, through Moses, parting the Red Sea.
A line randomly wanders around the page until it ends at a headstone which represents the death of the unbelieving generation.
The walls of Jericho mark the first town the Children of Israel conquered as they reclaimed the promised land.
Two arrows create a never-ending circle representing the Children of Israel turning to God and then away from God, over and over again.
The crown represents the Kings the people asked God to give them. The megaphone reminds us that during this time God sent prophets to warn the people and call them back to Him.
A sad face with tears is used to represent the tragic consequences of sin. The megaphone shows that the prophets continued to plead with the people to turn back to God.
A U-turn arrow shows that God brought His people out of exile and back to their land. And again the prophets spoke, which is represented by the megaphone.
The 400 silent years of waiting between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament.
Four books represent the first four books of the New Testament – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The cross on the cover reminds us that these are the books that tell us about the life and death and resurrection of Jesus.
Since Jesus’ death and resurrection, the Holy Spirit now comes to live inside all who believe. We say that He is living in our hearts. The lines represent His power that now works in and through us.
We are to tell others about Jesus and help them become His disciples. Then they are to tell others about Jesus and help them become His disciples.
Here we draw another picture of earth, but with a two. This represents the new earth and heaven that God will create in the future when Jesus comes again.
