Old Testament Characters



The Hebrew Bible or Christian Old Testament, is full of fascinating men and women, who sometimes demonstrated great faith and others times made big mistakes. All of these people were real - they lived in certain places at certain times, they had strengths and weaknesses, family and friends, and they shared faith in the same God. Reading their biographies can be rewarding and applicable to all who learn their stories.
