Love the Bible quizzes, ls. I have to say that family in the Bible is quite interesting. One can learn a lot of do's and don't's from them.

You must have spent ages composing those quizzes and they were fun to do. What a great idea! We think we know all the answers until we try to answer something like these. Thank you.

The article and quiz were great. The questions were tricky and challenging. I messed up on section real bad, 54%. It was on Jesus' brothers and sisters. I was getting real cocky after some easy ones. I was thinking how I had this aced. I read through the Bible every 4 months and I am beginning again on my 17th time though in a couple of days. But it seems I haven't learned everything yet. hahaha. I know That will never happen because the Bible is infinite. Voted up and interesting.

Well, hello there no body (you are a somebody to me). I do the same thing. You know, I've published a lot of Bible trivia hubs and let me tell you, I do not know all the answers to the questions I pose. I remember something vague, or remember someone or something and get into studying it and write a lot of the questions that way. It's fun thinking up tricky answers for. It tests me as well. These are just for fun, and to be interesting, not to see how scholarly we are. And really it isn't likely to affect your faith if you get some wrong. I learned a lot putting it together. Thanks for stopping by.

Great quiz. It must have taken a while to compose. I thought I knew more than I really did.
