Summary: This is just for fun. I encouraged my youth group to try and come up with a story made up of all scripture that would not change the menaing of the text. This was my example.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Then God said let us make man in Our image according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The Lord God planted a Garden eastward in Eden, and there he put the man who He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. And the Lord God commanded the man saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” And the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh. Gen:1-1, 26,2:7-9,16-17,21-22,24

The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that he who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ “and said, ‘For this reason man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh’? “ So then they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together let no man separate.” (Mat 19:3-6)

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘you shall not eat of the tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; “but the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. “ For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband and he ate.( Gen 3:1-6)

Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was lead by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended He was hungry. And the devil said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” But Jesus answered him saying, “It is written ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word of God.’” (Luke 4:1-4)

Now Adam knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Able was keeper of the sheep, but Kane was a tiller of the ground. And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Able and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry and his countenance fell. So the Lord said to Cain “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? “If you do well will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it. Now Cain talked with Abel his brother and it came to pass, when they were in a field, that Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him. (Gen 4:1-8)

We know we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. By this we know love that He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this worlds goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart form him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children let us not love in word, or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. (1st John 3:14-18)
