My favorite verse is John 10:3-5 It keeps me in tune with God's word . My sheep know my voice and not the voice of strangers.

Tom_ did you know that anywhere the Gospel is preached, That is to be mentioned as a memorial of her for doing that for our Lord?

"But woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the Kingdom of heaven from people, for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in" [Matt. 23:13].>>>"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling [Matt. 23:37].

My favorite NT story has always been the "Road to Emmaus" story. Along the road, the apostles' hearts "burned within them" they knew something special was going on. But only in the breaking of the bread did their eyes open fully and they saw Jesus in the fullness of Truth.

I love the account of the woman at the feet of Jesus who wiped his feet with her hair and her tears. I believe this is where Jesus says to the onlookers, that when one is forgiven of alot of sins, that person has much more love than one who has not sinned much at all.

I love the story about the healing of the paralytic. Not only does Jesus do a wonderful thing for someone, but the way those friends went onto the roof and lowered the stretcher. Hey, that IS faith in action.

I like the story in Genesis 38 that shows that women are often wiser and smarter than men. But God is merciful to men anyway. Romans 11:32.

I particularly love that story too Jerry, not even their clothes were singed!
I also love the sermon on the Mount.

"Favorite Bible Stories" One of many is The Fathers' comfort of Elijah, a mighty man of God, during his time of weakness and frustration. Saying through His angel "Arise and eat for the journey is to hard for you". This verse illustrates to me the compassion and understanding of the Father. It comforts me knowing to His Word and Spirit are available to strengthen me, that His goodness and mercy follows me all the days of my life and that I am given to abide in His house forever.

Thank you all of you.

One of my all time favorite story is about David, how God took a small lowly shephard boy, worked through him and turned him into a mighty king. It shows the human side in the bible and God still loved him. With faith and God all things are possible.

My favorite Bible character is Elijah. I like his introduction.
" Now comes Elijah".
I like his boldness. I like his authoritative manner of speaking. Elijah's Mandel was powerful enough to give Elisha. the special anointing, And I'm very fond of the transportation he used to enter the heavens. Elijah was no wimp.

Sarah sent her maid Hagar, who had conceived Abraham's child (Ishamael), Sarah sent her away. She was in the wilderness and an angel of the Lord appearted to hear and gave her and her son water to drink. Hagar said, "Thou art a God who sees." God's compassion upon women, especially this one has touched my heart and the hearts of those I've told this story to. Just remember, Thou art a God who sees.

I really like Luke 7:36-50. When I read this true report in my apartment in California, I realized then whom Jesus Christ really is, and I went into my bathroom (eventhough I lived alone), and I fell down on my knees just as the woman had also done in the Bible, and I began to cry. And I asked Jesus to also forgive me and to save me. From then on I knew exactly who Jesus is. I continued walking with him, and our relationship together just keeps getting better and better with each and every passing day.

The Woman at the Well because that was me before Jesus. Praise the Lord!!!!!

My fav has been from a child the 3 hebrews in the furnace. It has always reminded me the the Son of God will be with us and be there for us in any situation that comes. Da 3:24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. Da 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt,
---evangelistjerry on 4/28/08

and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Da 3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
---evangelistjerry on 4/28/08

Da 3:27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

Hi, one of my all-time favorites is the Transfiguration, for a couple of reasons. The way God says "LISTEN TO HIM" basically. It seems to clear any emotions away that aren't healthy and makes me want to draw ever nearer to God. :) Also like how they said Peter was babbling lol :D

Part 2: Yeah, I tend to especially appreciate stories with subtle or outright humor in them. I think partly because during my nervous breakdowns (I've had a couple, my worst being last year), humor is like a lifeline to grab onto when it feels like all heck is breaking loose. I think humor is one of God's greatest gifts to us.

Revelation 19:11-16 It always had a special place for me. (goosebumps and chills at it's reading)

It's a moment of time that only Heaven and those headed there can envision and call right and true, it's the hope of hopes, and the un-silenced groan of my heart.

What's special is that this is not just our Lord, but our friend, the one who's heard all our heartaches and given us grace to stand up in things others would end their lives over.
The one who was, is, and is to come!
