      I knew most of them but a couple I missed, such as the woman who spiked an army captain (no. 4). This is a great lead for a Bible Study on Women of the Bible. Your questions draw interest and challenge the most skilled Bible scholars. Enjoyed your hub topic and presentation.

      Ann, Your questions really highlight the diversity of personalities, symbols, and lifestyles of women in the Bible.

      epigramman 6 years ago this is a really great and novel idea for a hub - I am a big fan of the bible, in spirit and for what it represents, but I am certainly no expert on its content or even its meaning but that said like your hub subject here and related quiz it's still the greatest story ever told ..... lake erie time ontario canada 5:54pm

      Are there consolation prizes?? You'd think I would have guessed at least one of these. I voted Up, just because I don't know anything, doesn't mean it isn't good.
