Epic Bible Scenes
We have recently been creating iBIBLE images from epic Bible stories from throughout Scripture, and today we are thrilled to show you some of these new, visually stunning images. We will share more of these with you in the coming weeks as well. We hope you enjoy!
The first image is from later in Genesis when Lot and his family are urged to flee the coming fate of Sodom. As they were in the process of leaving, Lot’s wife glanced back and was turned into a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:24–26).
From the book of Job, here are two images of the powerful beasts described in chapters 40 and 41. The first is the Behemoth, described as making his “tail stiff like a cedar…his bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like bars of iron” (Job 40:15–18).
The second is the Leviathan, a creature who dwells in the seas. To make the point that God is more powerful, excellent, and all-knowing than anything in creation, God says to Job:
Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook or press down his tongue with a cord? Can you put a rope in his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? Can you fill his skin with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? Who can strip off his outer garment? Who would come near him with a bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth is terror. His back is made of rows of shields, shut up closely as with a seal. One is so near to another that no air can come between them. —Job 41:1–2, 7, 13–16 [ESV]
One of the most well-known Bible stories, and likely one that immediately comes to mind when the word “epic” is used, we have an amazing deliverance event of the Old Testament: The Exodus. Here is an image of Moses parting the Red Sea and leading the Israelites through the waters. Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and God opened the waters so the Israelites could pass through on dry ground (Exodus 14:21–22).
Thank you for joining us on our journey to create the first ever visual presentation of God’s Divine narrative. We look forward to all the epic Bible scenes we will have the privilege to illustrate, animate, and share with the whole world. Thank you for your prayers and continued support of our mission to bring God’s Word to the ends of the earth in a format all kinds of people can engage with, and prayerfully consider joining us today as an iBIBLE Producer.
