Have you ever wondered what’s missing from the Bible? There are so many people whose lives are covered over the course of thousands of years in the Bible, millions of situations and conversations will have gone unrecorded.
To try to fill in some of that gap, here are 20 conversations the Bible left out.
Noah: Told you so.
Jonah: And I pray for traveling mercies…
Job: Relax – what’s the worst thing that could happen today?
Eve: Should I wear the green fig leaf or the brown fig leaf?
Lot’s friend: Please could you pass the sa….. Sorry.
David: I’d give Bathsheba a good side hug.
Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego: I’m sorry; we’d prefer not to eat meat. We we’d rather eat Bob, Larry and Jr instead.
Isaac: Um, Dad – this game of “Tie your firstborn son to an altar and hold a knife above his head” doesn’t seem like it’s the most age-appropriate game we could be playing.
Balaam: Your voice doesn’t sound like Eddie Murphy’s.
Abraham: “I have many sons. Many sons have I.” I’m sorry Sarah – the song will never catch on.
Saul / Paul: I’ve just had a real Road To Damascus experience.
The Magi: Our love language is giving gifts.
Person at the feeding of the 5,000: Do you have a gluten-free vegan option?
Noah’s wife: Really Noah? Cockroaches?
Jabez: I wonder if one day someone will write an entire book based on two sentences that I prayed.
John The Baptist: Ooh, that’s a really nice shiny platter – why are you bringing that into a prison?
Solomon: I don’t understand why my 700 wives think I don’t spend enough time with each of them.
Paul: Was it Philippians, Phillippians, Philipians or Phillipians?
Samson: Because I’m worth it.
Adam: What do you mean, why did I call that a hippopotamus? Look at it – it so looks like it should be called a hippopotamus.
