Bible Quiz

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Tim. 2:15
Some time ago at our Wednesday night Bible study, we did this Bible quiz, which was fun and interesting. You are not supposed to use your Bible while taking the quiz, just do it from memory. Of course some the questions are very simple while others are a little more difficult.

Some of these questions are really hard! It's hard to keep myself from looking up some of the answers in the Bible.:)
Thanks for posting this!


How funny Ruth Ann! :) I actually just posted it so that anyone who wanted to could print off copies and do it on paper. When we did it, each one of us got a copy and then afterwards someone read aloud the answers so that we could check it. :)

Yeah, I caught on to that afterwards. :) That's a great idea!

Wow, I agree with anonymous -- some of these are tough! I'll definitely be sharing this with my husband; maybe we can race to see who finishes first and who gets the most answers correct! :o)
