Bible Coloring Pages - Old Testament

I am very excited to be able to share this huge list of Bible coloring pages with you. My goal is to find coloring pages to enable you to color your way through the entire Old Testament section of the Bible.

Years ago when my children were younger, I bought a set of Bible coloring pages for our homeschool for my children to color as we read through the Bible. But I have discovered that the internet has so many free Bible coloring pages available that there is no need for you to buy any :-)

These Old Testament Bible coloring pages would be great for Sunday school, vacation Bible school, homeschooling, religious education, Scripture in schools, Bible notebooking etc. The thumbnail pictures you see on this page are all my own adaptations of artwork from Sweet Publishing (under the CC BY-SA 3.0 license).
