==========================================================

Here we go…

Read the following quiz introduction, then click the “Next” button to see the first question.  Good luck!

Who Am I?  Names with Four Letters

This quiz is a bit different; it’s fill in the blank instead of multiple choice.  But, ALL of the answers only consist of four letters!  The Bible is rich with stories about a lot of different people, and many of their names are spelled with four letters.

Consider each “Who Am I?” clue, and answer by entering in the name of the person who is described.  The answers are not “case sensitive,” so don’t worry about capital letters.  Just enter the 4-letter name and hit “Enter” (or click/tap the “Next” button).  This quiz has five questions randomly selected from a larger pool.  The questions will change on each attempt, so keep trying!

#1. I was Ruth's Kinsman Redeemer, and I became King David's Great-Grandfather. My name doesn't start with an "A", but it ends with a "Z"...

Boaz

Boaz’s story is told in the book of Ruth (which is located between Judges and 1 Samuel).  Ruth was a widow to a man whose brother had also died.  In order to inherit any land or to make any living, a next of kin (“kinsman redeemer”) had to marry her.  Boaz was a wealthy land owner, and he was also a relative of Ruth’s late husband.

Boaz married Ruth, and their son Obed was the father of Jesse, who was King David’s son.  God used Ruth (who was from Moab, not Israel), to build the line which would one day give birth to Jesus.

#2. Beatle Paul sang about me, but I wrote a letter about my half-brother Jesus.

Jude

The book of Jude is a short letter written to the early church to strengthen their faith and to encourage them to persevere.

In verse 1, Jude identifies himself as a servant of Christ and a “brother of James.”  Tradition holds that James and Jude (judas) are both sons of Mary (making them “half-brothers” of Jesus, since God was Jesus’ Father).

Mark 6:3…
Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
NIV

On the 45 RPM recording of “Hey Jude”, the B side is “Revolution.”  The book of Jude comes right before the book of Revelation…

#3. I'm a "Minor Prophet," but I'm not Joel. I wrote about a plumb line and a basket of fruit.

Amos

Amos wrote to the Northern Kingdom of Israel (as opposed to the southern kingdom of Judah) at a time when things were going pretty well economically.  But, the people had disregarded the poor and had become prideful in their possessions.

He used a plumb line to show that they were no longer true to God’s righteousness and a basket of fruit to show that they were “ripe for judgement.”  (Amos chapters 7 and 8).

Joel is the name of another Minor Prophet (they’re called “Minor” only because their books are shorter than the “Major Prophets” like Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel).

next

#4. I was one of Jacob's sons, and you had to be from my tribe to be a priest. The Gospel writer Matthew was also called by my name.

Levi

Levi was one of the 12 sons of Jacob which formed the 12 tribes of Israel.  Levi was singled out as the tribe which would care for the tabernacle during the Exodus and they also became the tribe from which all priests came.  They were given no land inheritance.

Deuteronomy 21:5-6
The priests, the sons of Levi, shall step forward, for the Lord your God has chosen them to minister and to pronounce blessings in the name of the Lord and to decide all cases of dispute and assault.
NIV

Luke (5:27-28) refers to the tax collector / disciple as “Levi”…
After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. “Follow me,” Jesus said to him,  and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.
NIV

But Matthew refers to himself as “Mathew” (Matthew 9:9)…
As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
NIV

next

#5. I was a doctor. I traveled with Paul and wrote one of the Gospels and the book of Acts.

Luke

Paul identified Luke as a doctor at the end of his letter to the Colossians (4:14)-  “Our dear friend Luke, the doctor, and Demas send greetings.” NIV.

Luke wrote the Gospel of Luke as a way to document the things that happened so that his friend may “know the certainty of the things you have been taught.” (Luke 1:1-4)    He later followed up with the book of Acts.
