MsDora, former teacher and Christian counselor is also an avid Bible student and loves to share Bible facts for learning and fun activities.

The Bible Trivia has two sections. In the first section, you are required to name the good looking woman who is referred to in a statement quoted from the New King James Version (unless otherwise noted) of the Bible. Some statements are edited to prevent disclosure of the answer.

Get a notepad and pencil to jot down the answers you select from the multiple choices provided. Check for the correct answers at the end of the page.

However you do the quiz, alone or with a group, have fun remembering or learning for the first time! (See also Good Looking Men in the Old Testament.)

      Good Evening Ms Dora,

      It's my pleasure, and thank you for being so gracious. I knew that you usually postponed the publishing of your comments until they had passed your scrutiny, and it was the next best thing I could do to send those messages to you privately, leaving to your discretion as to how you handled them. I'm not usually that finicky, but in relation to the Bible, it seemed best to engender more focus upon the detail.( Perhaps it was the inner Columbo trying to escape : )

      I hope you've enjoyed a pleasant day, and wish you a fine and lovely evening in that paradise which is surely St. Kitts.

      With Kind Regards,

      My Dear Romeos,

      Now you also get an accolade for editing. I am thrilled that you pay such close attention, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      Here are the corrections I made:

      Section Two, Question 9 - (b) is the correct answer.

      Section One, Question 8 - I added verse 3, since that verse mentions her name and verse 4 gives the information about him not sleeping with her.

      Section One, Question 10 - You are absolutely correct, again! That may have cost you some effort.

      I truly appreciate you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      Dear Ms Dora,

      Me again lol!

      I think the Bible passages referred to in Section One, Question Ten are Ezekiel 16: 7, not Ezekiel 6: 3,7.

      I hope you find this useful also.

      Dear Ms Dora,

      I think that the Bible passage for Section One, Question Eight is from 1 Kings 1:3, not I Kings 1:4., in relation to the girl's name and not her description.

      I hope that you find this helpful also.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Dear Ms Dora,

      There may be a 'typo' in Section Two, Question Nine.

      I think the answer should read ' b ' - Proverbs 11:22. :)

      I make typos all the time.

      Best Wishes,


      P.S. Please feel free to not print the comment, but I hope you may find it useful. Thank you.

      Very inspiring. I shared it to my 2 nieces, ages 8 and 10 and they just loved the quizzes. They checked each other paper afterwards and almost got the same score. Good for bible drill games. Thank you for this Hub.

      Very Useful.

      MsDora, I am very offended. This is a terrible question, that I will print out and make a bible study out of. It is hard for me but, only my wife is beautiful. Wow what a great concept. Let us all examine beauty.

      You are a leader in a great movement. Beauty of the heart. What shall we name it?
