Bible stories, Judeo-Christian retellings of certain portions of the Bible, have long had a place in family religious worship, spiritual instruction and the cultural underpinnings of many Christian and Jewish societies. In many Christian churches, they are regular ingredients of Sunday School curricula; the underlying spiritual principles in many of these stories are used in preaching and teaching for Judeo-Christian adults as well. The Tanakh known as the Old Testament, contains stories about the creation and fall of humanity, the covenant God established with Abraham, the history of the'Chosen People' of Israel; the New Testament in the Christian Bible contains stories about the life of Jesus, the parables he told, about the first period of apostolic activities. The reason that people read the Bible is. Christians believe that the Holy Spirit was speaking through the authors of any given part of the Bible, therefore any stories are direct words from God. Stories in the Bible help to show examples of how Christians should live their lives on a day to day manner.
Any story that a person can learn a lesson from is called a parable, the Bible is full of them. Although some believe that it is God's direct word in the Bible, humans physically wrote the words. A lot of the Old Testament authors were prophets, including Abraham and Ezekiel, but there were many other unknown authors. All of the stories in the Old Testament are from before the birth of Jesus; this includes the beginning of the earth story in Genesis and other stories about the Jews interacting with God through prophets. The New Testament is the story of Jesus, along with the earliest written Christian materials. A large portion of the New Testament is the Gospels written by Matthew, Mark and John known as the four Evangelists; the Evangelists were disciples of Jesus, all told His story in a different way. It is believed that the Old Testament started to be put together in the 8th century B. C. Deuteronomy and Judges were added in the 6th Century B. C. and within the years leading up to the birth of Jesus the rest of it was put together.
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, but was translated into Greek. The New Testament was put together after Jesus's death. St. Paul's letters were circulated until they were gathered into books, the Gospels were written and added. At this time people started to tell the stories of Jesus and his miracles, starting an oral tradition that still continues today; the Bible is the most published book with over 50 billion copies sold and distributed. It has been translated into 683 languages, but small parts of it have been translated into thousands of languages and dialects around the world. About one-third of the world's population is Christian, so most of these people have heard or read some of the stories within the Bible, making the stories popular.

The 4 × 200 metres relay is an athletics track event in which teams comprise four runners who each complete 200 metres or half a lap on a standard 400 metre track. The event is a world record eligible event, but is not a standard event at most track meets, though certain leagues conduct this event as part of their program. There are multiple formats. If the track is marked for a four-turn stagger format, the runners can stay in their lanes throughout the race. In such a situation, the outer lanes could appear to start 2/3 of the way through the first turn; the markings for such a special zone should be colored red, though many tracks deviate from the standard marking colors. On a conventionally marked track, the race can be run starting at the normal 400 metres start line; as a two-turn stagger, the first exchange would take place in the standard second passing zone of the 4x100 metres relay, the second pass taking place in the normal 4x400 metres relay zone. After that exchange, the runner would break into lane one and make a third exchange in lane one of the second standard 4x100 metres relay zone.
Indoors, the event is popular. The men's world record was set in 2014 at the inaugural IAAF World Relay Championships in Nassau, Bahamas; the record was set by a Jamaican team consisting of Nickel Ashmeade, Warren Weir, Jermaine Brown and Yohan Blake in a time of 1:18.63. The women's world record is 1:27.46, set by a squad called Team USA "Blue" LaTasha Jenkins, LaTasha Colander-Richardson, Nanceen Perry, Marion Jones on April 29, 2000, at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
