Who Said That???

One of the cool things about the Bible is that it’s full of people in real situations saying real things.  There are many familiar verses declaring a point of theology (such as “All things work together for good…”).  But what about the people involved in the stories of the Bible?  Does the quote remind you of a story, and can you name the person who said it?

In each of the following quotes, select the person who is most known for saying it.  Note that the questions in this quiz come from a pool of questions, so keep trying.  You’ll see 5 of the questions on each attempt.

#1. “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

Mary

When Jesus was 12 years old, Mary and Joseph had visited Jerusalem for the Passover.  After the Passover, they returned back to Galilee with large crowd who had also made the trip.  Along the way, Mary and Joseph realized that Jesus was not with them.  They rushed back to Jerusalem and found Jesus in the Temple…

Luke 2:48-50
48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.

49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”
NIV

#2. “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

Cleopas and Friend

A few days after Jesus’ crucifixion, two despondent disciples (one named Cleopas, the other un-named) left Jerusalem to return home(?) to the nearby village of Emmaus.  Along the way, the resurrected Jesus appeared and joined in their discussion.

Luke 24:30-32

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?
NIV

#3. “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters — one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

Peter

The disciples saw a lot of amazing things, but one of the strangest things they saw was the Transfiguration.  Something happened to Jesus and then all of a sudden Moses, and Elijah were there.  Peter didn’t know what to say, so he blurted out an offer to build some shelters or shrines.  He wanted to memorize the occasion instead of just falling on his knees and worshiping.

 

Matthew 17:1-5
1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.  There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.  Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.

4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters — one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
NIV

#4. “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself?”

Martha

Jesus visited the home of two sisters, Mary and Martha.  Mary recognized the importance of being with Jesus, but Martha was bogged down in the details…

Luke 10:38-42

38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.  She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.  But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,  but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
NIV

next

#5. But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.”

Peter

Jesus warned the disciples that Satin would tempt and attack them after He was crucified.  But Peter was always sure of his own willpower…

Luke 22:31-34

31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.  But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

33 But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.”

34 Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.”
NIV
