If Bible Stories Had Click-bait Titles


The Reddit community r/Christianity, of which I am a part, had a fun discussion the other day and I thought it would be great to share some of the top responses to the question “If the Bible Had Click-Bait Titles, What Would They Be?” Thanks to the group for the creativity!

And, of course, feel free to use these for sermon bait too!

2. 613 simple tips to keep your deity happy! (see, the Torah)

3. Jesus of Nazareth seen spitting on blind man! (Mark 8.23, John 9.6)

4. Man gets swallowed by giant fish, lives to tell about it! (Jonah 1.17-2.10)

6. Stuttering Prophet reveals 10 controversial tips to everlasting life (number 7 will shock you!) (Exodus 20)
