Bible Quiz

Quizzes….  Fun?!?  When they don’t count for a grade and when nobody knows how you did, they can be fun.  And, they’re a great way to stretch your mind a bit and learn more about the Bible (and about the church). 

This page will give you a few minutes to do just that.  Shown below is the latest in a series of short quizzes.  The quizzes are changed each week (Sunday midnight).  So while you’re getting ready for church, or if you’re in a mid-week slowdown, try the quiz!

If you’re new to these quizzes and need some technical pointers on how to use the quiz software, click the below “drop down” box to open the instructions….

 

Instructions

While Taking the Quiz…

  • To answer a question, click the “toggle switch” (or photo) that’s next to the correct answer. When selected, the “toggle switch” will point to the right.
  • Sometimes, the correct answer will be immediately highlighted (and an explanation will appear). Read the explanation before moving to the next question.
  • To move to the next question, click the “Next” button after you’ve selected your answer.

 

Uh-Oh…

  • Some of these quizzes are timed! If you see a timer countdown number on your screen, complete the quiz before it reaches 0. Otherwise the quiz will be automatically submitted “as is.”

 

After Taking the Quiz…

  • When you Finish the quiz, your score will be shown on the top of the page.

Give it Another Shot!

The quiz will look different each time you try it. The questions on most of the quizzes are randomly chosen from of a larger poll of questions (on the same topic). So, each time you try the quiz, you’ll see some different questions. Keep trying and watch your score improve.

Who Said That??? (NT)- Part 2

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?
There are a ton of possible quotations.  This quiz builds off of a previous quiz with new quotations.
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 an unusually large pool, so keep trying.  You’ll see 5 of the questions on each attempt.

#1. “Yes,” she said, “that is the price.”

Sapphira

Acts 5:1-9

1 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property.  With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God.”

5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened.  Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

7 About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?”

Yes,” she said, “that is the price.

9 Peter said to her, “How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”
NIV

#2. “Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing.”

Paul

Acts 15:36-41

36 Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing.”  Barnabas wanted to take John, also called Mark, with them,  but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work.  They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus,  but Paul chose Silas and left, commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord.  He went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.
NIV

#3. “You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!”

Stephen

Stephen was an early church leader who became the first Christian Martyr.  This quote gives you an idea of why the Jewish leaders wanted to stone him…

Acts 7:51-56

51 “You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!  Was there ever a prophet your fathers did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him—  you who have received the law that was put into effect through angels but have not obeyed it.”

54 When they heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him.  But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.  “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
NIV

#4. “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”

One of the Seven Angels

Revelation 21:9-11

9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
NIV

#5. “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?”

Slain Souls

Revelation 6:9-10

9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained.  They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?
NIV
