My friend goes to church but he doesn't read the Bible. I figured sharing funny moments in the Bible could help peak his interest. One that comes to mind is when God calls Jonah to go to Nineveh, Jonah flees in the opposite direction from the port of Joppa towards Tarshish.

LOL!!! The story in Genesis where Rebekah covers Jacob with goatskins so that he can feel hairy like his brother Esau always cracks me up.

haha these are great. In Genesis 18:15, God and Sarah have this exchange about whether or not she laughed

The one that always makes me laugh is the conversation between Jesus and Peter when Jesus is washing his disciples feet. Peter's response is hilarious and I can only imagine how it would be in person haha

One scene that always makes me smile is Sarah's reaction in Gen 18:12-15, when she heards that she is going to bear a child: 

So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?” Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”
But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”
