Vintage Bible story pictures

I have a small but precious collection of old religious books for children, mostly from the turn of last century. Some I've inherited from family, others I've picked up at antique fairs. They have some great illustrations of Bible stories, including some of the more 'obscure' stories that probably aren't taught in Sunday School anymore. So, before these books disintegrate completely, I thought I would share the pictures with you and I hope you can use them in your Sunday school lessons!

I've tried to provide Bible references for the various stories - if no reference is given it's because it's such a well known story and/or appears in each of the gospels. Click on the image description and you'll be taken to an image file which you can then download to your computer (right click on the picture and choose 'Save image as').  

I've scanned them at 300dpi so they may take a little while to download!

La Vista Church of Christ also has a good collection of vintage bible pictures.
