Illustrations for Pastors & Teachers

The illustrations in this collection come from a variety of sources, mostly ancient or historical. What makes this collection unique is that each source is cited so that you can have confidence when you use it as an illustration for your sermon or lesson. The problem with most illustration collections is that the stories are irrelevant and the material is not cited from a primary source. Our desire is to help preachers and teachers add depth and power to their message from God’s word. We will add a new illustration each week and it will be listed by topic or Bible verse. Search the folders listed by topic for archived illustrations and quotes.
