Bible Characters Through The Ages: Adam In The Garden
Daniel and Sarah use “Yahweh’s Express” (a refrigerator box turned into a time travel machine), to travel back in time to meet the characters of the Bible. Being kids they tend to like to explore on their own a bit.Here is part of the manuscript where Daniel and Sarah meet Adam: They ran over to where Adam was working on a space in the garden. He was startled when he saw them. “Who are you?” Adam said. “I thought I was the only human here in the Garden of Eden.”
Bible Characters Through The Ages: Meeting Eve
The kids have safely made it back to the Garden of Eden and are able to meet Eve. Here is a sneak peak of that manuscript:“She’s very beautiful,” said Sarah. “Hi, Eve, my name is Sarah, and this is my brother, Daniel. It’s so nice to meet you.” “It’s nice to meet you, too,” replied Eve. “Adam said you played with the animals yesterday. Have you been down by the water? There are some fun fish and dolphins down there.” “No” Daniel ran his fingers through his hair. “That would be fun, let’s go.”
“Great,” replied Eve, “let’s walk down to the water.”
Bible Characters Through the Ages Book Three Watching David and Goliath.
The kids decide to travel back to see David take down Goliath. David put on the king’s armor—a heavy bronze helmet and coat of metal. He stumbled under the heavy weight. Then picking up the sword, he fell to the floor. “I can’t go in this armor, it weighs too much.” Letting go of the sword, he pushed himself up on his knees.
