Bible Quiz and Trivia - Questions and Answers Included
I have a love for trivia and quizzes. When I am asked a historical or biblical question and I do not know the answer, my immediate response is to search for it and I do not stop until I find out the answer. I have always been that way but maybe it is because there has always been Bible questions included in our family Bible time.
Asking questions from the Bible during Bible time with the family is a useful tool. It not only encourages listening but it also reveals how much you have learned and are still learning.
Perhaps you would like to give these questions a go and see how well you know your Bible. After you are through perhaps you may feel inclined to ask these questions from the Bible to your family and then maybe you can search for Bible questions on your own to add to your collection of Bible questions.
