Hello Ms Dora,

Thank you for this quiz where we were able to see if we really are familiar with the sayings of Jesus. I enjoyed taking the test.

One problem though....I have not read through the comments so I don't know if anyone else has picked it up....the answer to 9 in the second set of questions is actually a) and not b). I got quite a shock when my question came up as incorrect. Please correct it asap because not everyone goes to check up in their Bibles for these quizzes. God Bless. Voted interesting and up.

Thanks, Ms. Dora, for showing me where I need to sharpen my mind. I got 9 out of 10 on Part 1, but only 6 out of 10 on part 2. Sure, Jesus spoke to all of us, but I should know he was talking to better than I do.

Have you thought about putting these into the Quiz Capsule? That would be fun!


MsDora profile image

MsDora 3 years ago from The Caribbean Author

Hi Sid, glad you enjoyed the quiz. I am aware of the quiz capsule, but I want it easy to copy, for those who want to. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway.

I was thinking you could keep the text as is, and add a quiz capsule or two, too.

That was a fun idea and I wondered how I would go. I got 100% right. They would go well as a quiz or for a refresher at Sunday School. Very original.

MsDora. I was looking for the quiz capsules :=).... Thank you for sharing this... We may have been reading (or not) the bible, but the sense of being familiar to those words of Jesus Christ.... means at least I am paying attention. Good reminders to us... thank you very much. :=)-Tonette

Hello msdora.

Predominant. Be you doers, kind of Hub. Great idea, letting me know how the Holy Spiri is using you not only to give an answer knowledge of the Scripture ( correctly to answer it went perfect ), but at the same time how am I applying it in my daily walk ?! Purity of heart ; not to worry at all; living by the word; having 'real' family; walking on the narrow road ; worshipping genuinely ; and belonging with the " membership " as true as a disciple.

Ongoing homework.

Voted up and useful.


MsDora profile image

MsDora 3 years ago from The Caribbean Author

Michael, thanks for your participation. Yes, it is a good idea to stop and consider how these sayings affect our daily lives. Glad you're on the right track; we're heading in the same direction.

This was a fascinating test, MsDora. I was surprised at how much I have forgotten. I did better on the first set but only got 5 right on the second set. Looks like I have some reading to do. Very educational and enjoyable. That first picture is great.
