Bible Characters

We are using this part of our web site to study the life and works of many different Bible Characters. We will study characters, both men and women, of the Old and New Testaments and point out the way God used them to bring to the world the fact of Monotheism. Many of their names and exploits are recorded in Hebrews 11. 

We can trace in their recorded histories the many different types of individuals God called into His service. Some of them were called to leave their homes and families and go into a strange land where God promised to give it to them for an inheritance. Others were called to stand for God under terrible conditions. Some stumbled along the way but by the grace of God picked themselves up to leave us a record of Gods mercy and grace.

These men and women, we call Bible Characters, are the greatest people the world has ever produced. Without the heroics of their lives , the world would still be wallowing in idolatry, and a large part of the population in bondage of slavery.

So I invite you to read each article on the lives of the greatest men and women of all time.
