The Bible is much more like a TV Soap Opera than a boring text book. It is full of crazy stories of broken people who are simply interesting to read about.
Consider Genesis Chapter 30 where the 12 sons of Jacob are being born (later becoming the 12 tribes of Israel). Leah and Rachel (and their maidservants) spend all their time arguing over who is going to sleep with Jacob. In verse 15, Leah trades a fruit (“mandrakes“) for the chance to have another child with Jacob. That sounds more like “Days of our Lives” or “General Hospital” than Scripture!
And that is the story of the formation of the mighty nation of Israel. You can call that anything…but certainly not boring!
The next time someone dismisses the Bible as boring or irrelevant…try sharing that story. Perhaps they would become avid readers of the source of all wisdom.
Thanks for listening.
