The Bible has a lot of stories about siblings

There are dozens of stories about siblings in the Bible. Many of them contain conflict or rivalry; some were about avenging a sibling; and some siblings were portrayed as congenial but very different. Take this journey through the Bible regarding sibling relationships. Take the quiz and see how much you know. Good luck!

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves."

— Philippians 2:2-3

Sisters and brothers in the Bible

We hear a lot more in the Bible about brothers than we do sisters; however, there are some sister/sister, sister/brother stories we can learn from. Family dynamics are an important part of our lives. We can learn from the good ones as well as the bad ones. Much of this quiz is simply informational to see how much you know.

      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.

      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.

      Northwind you are so right. Much to learn about family in the Bible. I am glad God got it in there to teach us.

      Eric. Glad you had fun.

      Blossom, I am glad you enjoyed them. Yes, it took a few days to get this done but it was fun and informative.

      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.

      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.
