Objective 3: Collect information on a biblical character.
The Old and New Testaments are filled with interesting stories and personalities. Some of those personalities or characters stand out because of their faithfulness to God. Others we are familiar with because they worked against God. In any case, knowing more about these people as individuals, their backgrounds, and the cultures they came from gives us more insight and understanding into the Bible as a whole.

Learning Activity #4: Biblical Character Paper
Choose one person from the following list of well-known people from the Bible, and then complete a character study on that individual using Bible dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, etc. Write a 2-3 page paper on the individual you have chosen.

- Apostle Peter
- Daniel
- Deborah
- Esther
- King David
- King Josiah
- King Solomon
- Jeremiah
- Joshua
- Moses
- Naomi
- Nehemiah
- Ruth
- Samson

Note: You may not find information on all of the areas above.
