Three issue series.

The Bible has heroes, villains, and amazing feats, so its content proved well suited to the comic medium. The first DC series to feature biblical tales had appeared in 1942. Titled Picture Stories from the Bible, it had adapted stories from the Old Testament including those of Moses, Abraham, the prophet Elijah and the famous David and Goliath. The 1944 version, labeled "New Testament Edition" on the cover, told tales from the life of Christ. Don Cameron illustrated the series, which offered 45 pages of religious education for just 10c.

The first two issues were published by National Periodical Publications and the third issue was published by E.C. Comics.

These issues were Non-Distributed in the U.K. at the time so always cents copies.
