      I'm so disappointed in myself. I was able to answer 3 out of those original 20. I knew a couple more, but couldn't bring them to mind. Then 6 out of 12 on the children's part. I was pretty sure on 4 more, but not 100%. Proves how much more I need to study the Bible.

      Great lense. If we want to know Christ we have to know his word. In the Old Testament Christ was the Spoken Word. While on earth He was the Living Word. After asscending to the right hand of God, He left us with the Written Word. The Bible is Christ in print. Accepting the Gift of Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross is what saves us from Hell. Reading his word is how we get to know our Savior. Sorry for the long comment. It's just that passion for God's Word has majorly been lost, even in Christianity. This lense shows there are people who still love it.

      I always thought Bible was similar to bibliography. There's a lot of interesting books that weren't included in the Bible I hear.

      A correction for you. The last book of the Bible is Revelation....not Revelations...The Apostle John had one vision or revelation..not two or more.

      I would like to know chapter and verse where you found the number of wise men who came to see Jesus. I have always thought this was not specified in the

      Bible, though tradition seems to have made up its mind.

      I found some of your questions challenging. Will link to this from my quiz on Old Testament People.

      anonymous 7 years ago

      In your question how many wise men came to visit Jesus, you have 3 as the answer. There were 3 gifts presented but the Bible never does say how many wise men. Matt. 2:7-12
