We all love stories. They make us feel like we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. They can stir the imagination and engage the heart. They motivate us, influence us, and have the unique ability to build connections. So, it’s no wonder that the Bible is the most beloved book of all time!
In this series, Timeline, we’ll explore the stories that span 4,000 years of biblical history, from Genesis to Malachi. As we focus on some of the most beloved stores in the Old Testament, we’ll discover that in every story the overarching theme is God’s desire to have a relationship with us.

The brutality, lust and abandon of Canaanite mythology is far worse than elsewhere in the [Ancient Near East] at this time. And the astounding characteristic of Canaanite deities, that they had no moral character whatsoever, must have brought out the worst traits in their devotees and entailed many of the most demoralizing practices of the time, such as sacred prostitution, child sacrifice and snake worship.
