The Lion Storyteller Bible
About this deal
Lions are featured in the description of the cherubim surrounding God’s throne. Ezekiel 10:14 says, “Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a human being, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.” Some assert that the presence of a lion’s face may symbolize the boldness and strength of God’s character. Other scholars suggest the lion’s face represents God’s rule over the wild beasts. These lively retellings are full of humour and drama. The strong rhythmic prose invites children to join in.” Times Educational Supplement

Lions are legendary for their strength, beauty, and fearlessness. The lion has been called the king of the beasts and the king of the jungle, and, in the Bible, Jesus is called the Lion of Judah (Revelation 5:5). The lion symbolism expands our understanding of baby Jesus in the manger (Luke 2:7) and the suffering Savior on the cross (Isaiah 53:7), revealing Jesus as the conquering King of kings, a roaring lion taking vengeance on His enemies (Revelation 19:16). Biblical storytelling can do one of two things," says Bob. "It can excite and inspire and create a thirst for more. Or it can bore and embarrass and leave a group with a sad sense of 'so what?' And that's an important difference, if you believe, as I do, that those stories contain something essential about who we are and who God is."
Probably the most familiar mention of lions in the Bible is found in the story of the prophet Daniel. This godly man was thrown into a lions’ den for refusing to obey the Persian king’s ban on prayer (Daniel 6:16). A lions’ den was sure destruction for anyone tossed inside. Yet God showed His authority over even the most powerful of beasts by shutting the lions’ mouths. Daniel, rather than come to a gruesome demise, emerged from the den unharmed (Daniel 6:21–22). These lively retellings are full of humour and drama. The strong rhythmic prose invites children to join in. Times Educational Supplement
