In this article we'll look at some general and specific Bible word searches, some of which most of us wouldn't have thought of.
Printable on "How to Read the Bible"
This first Bible word search printable is one that focuses on the various things to look for when reading the Bible. Some of them are required responses by those reading it, and others are promises and principles provided for by the God of the Holy Scriptures.
For example, there are hidden words like command and warnings, which are on the obey and response side of the Bible, while there are others like comfort and prosper; provisions made by God for those who trust and believe in Him.
Whatever stage of the walk with Christ people are at, this is an engaging and interesting word search puzzle to participate in. All of us need are require reminding of things throughout our time on earth concerning the things of God, and printables like this are fun and practical tools to help us on our journeys.
David and Saul Word Search
Here is an example of how a word search printable can take on a different form of Bible study. First is the fill in the black style, where a Bible verse is given and phrases that must be filled in to make them complete are provided.
Below that is the word puzzle itself, where some of the story surrounding David and Saul in 1 Samuel 24 are reflected in certain words which you must find among the multitude of letters.
Finally, to show that not all printables are created equal, there is a little fact box telling an interesting little story about the caves that David and his followers hid themselves in when being pursued by Saul.
Printable about Esau Selling His Birthright
When using a printable to engage children, such as this one containing words in the story of when Esau sold his birthright for a pot of stew, it's not always necessary for children to understand the words (or adults for that matter), all that's necessary is that they can identify the letters when searching for them in the puzzle.
If they haven't heard of some of these names or know how to pronounce them, it gives you the perfect opportunity to pronounce and define them for them as part of the activity and process.
And as always with Bible word search printables, the story itself, if that is what is represented such as this one about Esau, Jacob and Isaac, that will be included as the children are searching for the words.
For adults, along with discussing the story and its meaning, it can be fun to set time limits and work to find the most words within the agreed upon parameters.
Word Search of Books of the Bible
An always challenging and fun activity is that of participating in a word search of the books of the Bible.
With the one below it involves many if not all of the books of the Bible, so of course the puzzle involves a large number of letters as a result of the volume of words being searched for.
This is an activity for children a little older, and adults as well. It's surprising when we haven't read portions of the Bible for some time to have our memories jarred as to a book we haven't thought of in a long time.
Bible Word Search Printables
You can see from these examples of Bible word search printables that they come in all levels and topics, and anyone from children to grandparents could have fun participating in the exercise to the benefit of all.
Those that include figures could also be used as a coloring page once the word search is completed.
It's a lot of fun, and all you have to do is write in "Bible word search printables" into your search engine ot get as many of them as you could ever possibly use.
