Old Testament Clipart

I am slowly but surely getting together a list of links to free clip art that people can use for their Bible timelines.  Please be patient as I add to this list. Many of these images can be used on a full page as a coloring activity for your Bible studies.  **please note that clicking on a link will open it in a new window.

Old Testament

New Testament

Note: I prefer more “realistic” and “classical” artwork than comics & cartoons, so that is the clipart that I have linked here.  Unless noted, most of these images are black-and-white (because my kids enjoy coloring them).

Downloading images: I right-click on the image and copy it, then paste it into a blank Word document.  Then I re-size the image to the size I want.  That way I can fit multiple images on one page, saving ink and paper.

Old Testament Stories


You can find TONS of images from the Old and New Testament here.  I have many of these listed individually below.

Various full-color clipart can be downloaded free from here.

Biblical art is listed at this site by Old Testament character ~ I haven’t looked at all of these.  They are from classical paintings and illustrations; therefore, please watch for any that may be too graphic for your children.
