Two minutes, 50 words, 40 steps

For an even shorter version (though you need to know a bit about some of the Bible stories to see what they’re getting at), here’s someone’s attempt at summing up the Bible in 50 words that rhyme

God made, Adam bit, Noah

arked, Abraham split, Joseph

ruled, Jacob fooled, bush talked,

Moses balked, Pharaoh plagued,

people walked, sea divided,

tablets guided, promise landed,

Saul freaked, David peeked,

prophets warned, Jesus born,

God walked, love talked, anger

crucified, hope died, Love rose,

Spirit flamed, Word spread, God
