Bible Story Summaries and Profiles
Bible story summaries are designed to help teachers or parents of children tell the story in a way that is engaging and appropriate for them. You should always seek to adapt the story as needed to make it appropriate for the kids under your care. Each Bible story summary contains a story title, the Bible text for the story, one or more Bible story truths to help parents or teachers communicate core truths about the story, and a kid-friendly summary of the story.
