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

I think I still find it funny that Jesus let one of his disciples check out his hands because he won't believe he resurrected xD

Ooh funny stories are a good way to capture the interest of people in general - great idea!

I also find Jonah's story funny - can't mess with God!

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

@karafornia this made me crack up! For some reason, I smelled goat after reading your comment lol 😛

For me, it would be Elijah's sarcasm during the event in 1Kgs 18:27 when Elijah taunted the prophets of Baal to light their sacrifices to prove which God is the truth. I can say Elijah has some strong sarcasm skills 🤣
