Character Sketches

During my time in Bible College I was required to do various sketches of characters in the Bible. They will be linked through this page for anyone who might be interested in reading them. Click on the picture to the left of the character name and mini sketch on this page to access the full character sketches of each of the characters.

Noah - Everyone knows the story of Noah and the flood, but what else do we know about this great man of God? Click the picture on the left to visit a character sketch and learn more about him.

Abraham - Abraham is known as the father of the faith. When it seemed that nobody else was listening he heard God speak to him and tell him to get up and leave the life he was accustomed to and move himself and all he to a place God would tell him later. He was a man of great faith. Click on the picture to the left if you would like to know more about this great man.

Isaac - Isaac was born to Abraham and Sarah when Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90. He is the heir to everything that Abraham has but he is not the first born son. Click on the picture to the left to learn more about Isaac.

Jacob - "And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau." With these words Jacob deceived his father to get the acquisition of the birthright which lawfully belonged to his brother Esau. Click the picture to the left to learn more about "the deceiver."

Joseph - He was born in Haran to Rachel the wife of Jacob. When he was five or six years of age his family moved to Palestine where he spent most of his youth. Click the picture on your left if you'd learn more about the incredible life of Joseph. Joseph is a type of Christ as you will learn if you study the scriptures.

Moses - When people think of Moses the one thing that comes to mind is the sea opening up for the Israelites to pass over. But Moses' story has so much more to offer as he is raised in the courts of Pharoah to and taught in the best schools Egypt had to offer. Click the picture to the left to learn more about this amazing man of God.

Nehemiah - One of the most inspiring and authoritative examples of leadership and management in all of scripture is Nehemiah. It would be well for us to consider the reasons for the obvious success of this eminent man of God. Click the picture on the left to learn more.
