Story of Faith: The Brother of Jared

Told by Tricia Ann Williams

Jared and his brother lived in Babel. Because most of the people there were wicked, the Lord punished them by making them unable to understand each other when they talked. But Jared and his brother and their families and friends were not wicked. They loved the Lord and obeyed Him. The Lord told the brother of Jared that He would lead them to a promised land.

They built eight boats for their trip. It was very dark inside the boats, so the brother of Jared took sixteen white stones to the top of a mountain and asked the Lord to touch them with His finger to make them shine. Because the brother of Jared had such great faith, when the Lord touched the stones, the brother of Jared saw Him.

The brother of Jared put two shining stones into each boat. They had light while they crossed the ocean to the promised land.
