The Bible is filled with fascinating people, each just as human as the rest of us. Young and old, rich and poor, leaders and followers, moral and depraved, these individuals were all placed into Scripture to teach us lessons about life and God's plan of salvation. These Bible study meditations reflect the story of sin and salvation, life, death, mercy and grace.


Real People, written by author Reynold Kremer, presents 101 devotions on fascinating Bible people. Each devotion focuses on a lesson for saints and sinners today, from the famous:


ABRAHAM . . . The Man Who Was God’s Friend
ELISHA . . . The Man Who Saw Angels
LYDIA . . . A Woman of Means
NOAH . . . A Man of Ridicule
SAMSON . . . The Man Who Gambled and Lost

to the not so famous:

BARZILLAI . . . The Man Who Was Well Satisfied
BEZALEL . . . The Man Who Loved Art
HEIL . . . A Man Who Refused to Listen
JOANNA . . . The Follower
OG . . . The Man in the Iron Bed

to the infamous:

GEHAZI . . . The Man with One Too Many Errands
JEHOIAKIM . . . The Jewish Saddam
NABAL . . . The Man Who Lived Up to His Name
REHOBOAM . . . The Man Who Listened to Bad Advice
PONTIUS PILATE . . . The Man Who Couldn’t Find Truth


“Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us,
so that through endurance and the encouragement of
Scriptures we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)

As a child, I often looked at Bible characters through different glasses than the people around me. I saw them as amazing people who could do super human things. I set them up on pedestals like statues meant to be revered. Yet as I grew older, I began to notice that the people in the Bible were ordinary people, just like the rest of us. They were weak, fragile individuals who struggled daily with their problems, shortcomings, and relationships with those around them. Many of them did terrible things that needed to be dealt with. Many made wrong decisions that cost them dearly. Many lived in sinful societies or among dangerous enemies. To their eternal credit, many also displayed extraordinary faith and courage as they fought temptations, disappointments, physical problems, loneliness, pain, discouragement, and so much more. Some of them gave in to the pressures of Satan, while others stood strong in their battles until they received their crowns of righteousness.

These meditations offer insights into the personal lives of 101 of the men, women, and children mentioned in the Bible. Some of them were famous, and some of them are barely mentioned. As you move from page to page, you will meet this great cloud of witnesses who were carefully placed into Scripture to teach us lessons about life and God’s plan of salvation.


“Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so
easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
