Several have told me they read this… but didn’t want to put their answers down.  One person said it was too easy (But they wouldn’t reveal their answers!).  So I’ve put the answers below.  There may be another one for those who like a challenge.  (Aside: In another church I served I gave this test to a Sunday night crowd and as a whole the average score was 46%!  About 60-70 took the quiz.  Hmmm…)

  2. Name two books that are wisdom literature in the Bible. Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Proverbs, Song of Solomon

  3. Where in Matthew is Jesus’ baptism found (Just the chapter is sufficient.)?  Matthew 3:11-17

  4. Name the men (2) that took Judas’ place as an Apostle.  Matthias {Acts 1:26} and Paul {1 Corinthians 1:1}
