When was the Old Testament written?

The first book of the Bible is in the Old Testament and is called "Genesis" which means Beginnings. The first Bible story is about the beginning when God created the heavens and the Earth. It tells about the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. It tells about the first sin, and the story about the first flood and Noah who was saved by God. Genesis also tells about the beginning of nations and languages. It tells about Abraham and his family, and Joseph going to Egypt. For a complete Bible Time Line CLICK HERE.

BIBLE CARDS TO PRINT AND PLAY

Directions: Dealer deals 7 cards to each player. Place remainder of cards face down in center. Turn first card up in the discard pile. Player to Dealer's left starts. The player can either draw a new card or get the card from the discard pile. Then player must discard one card from his hand. The object is to be the first to have no remaining cards. When the player has at least three cards in a row they can lay the cards down. For example "Matthew, Mark & Luke". A Person can place cards down if they have the "Book" card before Matthew ~ "Malachi", or after Luke ~ "John". When the player lays three books down, another player can challenge if they do not think the books belong in the order they are layed down. Whichever player is incorrect that player draws 2 additional cards from the pile that is face down.

When we first played this game we used a deck of small cards with a dark color brown for old testament cards and an orange color for new testament. These cards were available in a Sunday School Resource Package. I made Our Bible Cards from the web backgrounds that I used for the different sections of the Bible. This makes it easier for younger children to play the game, and helps us focus on learning the different sections of the Bible. We have played the game with different rules, for example instead of the goal being to be the first one out, the goal is for the family to work together to get all 66 books of the Bible in order. After all cards are place in order we check it with a Bible to see if we got it correct. We have also played where you score 1 point for each card you lay down. To make the game easier you can make a rule where you can take up to 3 cards from the discard pile. If you need the Book discarded by the player to you left you do not have to wait until the cards are reshuffled. There are many ways you can play this fun Bible Card game. The purpose of the game is to challenge everyone to learn the order of the Books of the Bible. In less than 1 week we were all much better, and almost perfect by the second week. It was fun to find our 13 year old challenge us (Mom and Dad and 25 year old brother).

If you have discovered another way to play the game please email us, and we will add it here. HAVE FUN!!
