It was late one night, just before Easter, (according to the King James Version of the Bible), when I was in prison. The king intended to have me killed, just like he had done John the Baptist and James, one of the disciples of Jesus. Sixteen soldiers were assigned to guard me in the prison, but someone helped me to escape, although I was sleeping at the time. Who am I, and who helped me to flee from prison?
Paul and Silas
Peter and an angel
John and a donkey
Matthew and a governor
It was a night when I couldn't sleep. They brought the boring books to me and read them, but that didn't work. Instead, I was reminded that I hadn't rewarded the man who had saved my life so I asked my right-hand man how it should be done. Who am I, and who is the man that I rewarded?
King Ahasuerus and Mordecai
King David and Joab
King Nebuchadnezzar and Daniel
King Saul and Abner
I was asleep one night when my friend woke me up saying he'd had a weird dream. He said he'd dreamed that a round loaf of barley bread had rolled down into their camp with enough force to knock over a tent and collapse it. I knew immediately that his dream meant that God had delivered us into the hands of a great Israelite leader. What's the name of that leader?
One night I was preaching until after midnight in an upper room, when a young man sitting on the window-sill was carried off by a deep sleep and fell to the ground. I insisted that he was alive and "they led the boy alive and were encouraged to no small degree". My name was Paul but, in what city did this happen?
I am a member of the Sanhedrin, the ruling body of the Jews religious and political laws, and I came to Jesus in the night to ask him about His teachings, but the answers I got just left me more confused. Jesus told me I must be 'born again'. Who am I?
The rich young ruler
Joseph of Arimathea
I had something strange happen to me one night. I met a man and he wrestled with me; he even dislocated one of my joints. While some say the "man" was merely an angel, many Christians believe that this "man" was actually God, but who am I?
Boy! Was I ever in trouble, and deep!
I was responsible for some really special prisoners once, along with some other prisoners who could have all gotten away about midnight one night! I had secured the two "special" prisoners in an interior place within the prison, but what happened next? An earthquake! The doors of the prison opened up and I nearly killed myself, dreading the horrible punishment that would be mine in the morning! One of the prisoners called out to me and stopped me from using my sword on myself, though.
What did he say that made me pause, according to the 16th chapter of Acts?
Long live the king of Greece.
Fear not, it is only a small quake.
Hail, O jailer; why do you not see?
Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
In Acts 17 the Jewish establishment in Thessalonika was stirring up the city against Paul and me. My name was Silas, and one night the new Christian community there sent us away under the cover of darkness to a more friendly place. To what location did they send us?
My name is Jacob and I was having a good night's sleep, even though I had to use a rock for a pillow, when I had a dream I will never forget. The place had been called Luz, but I re-named it Bethel, as per Genesis 28:19. Can you select the correct vision?
Angels gaily dancing around a campfire.
A lone angel sitting on a rock blowing a trumpet.
The sky turning red, like the colour of blood.
Angels ascending and descending a ladder from heaven.
I was my mother's first born, and though I was precious to her, she left me at Church. While I was sleeping one night in the temple, God called out to me by name and told me what was to come. I was the last of my kind in Israel, and anointed a king though I agreed with God it wasn't a good idea. Who am I?
