15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit  

1. One of the places that Christians point to as an indicator that Jesus was Messiah, (meaning Anointed One), is the 50th chapter of the book of Isaiah. What is prophesied about Messiah in this text, that is also spoken of in the earlier-written book of Job and is later fulfilled in the book of Matthew?
    the people would beat and spit on Him
    He would forgive only those who were of Jewish descent
    the people would throw Him off a pinnacle of the temple
    He was to be tossed into a den of lions

2. In what Old Testament book is the following quotation found, which Christians believe is a direct reference to Jesus?
"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be."

3. An Old Testament prophet named Isaiah spoke well in advance, (about 700 years before Christ), of the birth of the Messiah. In which New Testament book do we find a similar reference to Jesus like that seen in Isaiah 9, that intimates that Messiah will have all authority resting upon his shoulders and that he will rule from the throne of David?
    1 Peter

4. "That Prophet".

This was a very familiar term to the Jewish people, because for centuries since the time of Moses they had been awaiting the promised Messiah. In fact, they had even asked another man if he was "that prophet", but he denied that. He did, however, indicate that Jesus WAS the one that they were expecting as the Anointed One. Who was this predecessor of Jesus?
    John the Baptist

5. Isaiah 53:3-5 speaks of Messiah's coming and Christians see many parallels in what Isaiah wrote and events that were recorded in the New Testament. In this text, which of the following statements did Isaiah *NOT* say about the Messiah who was yet to appear?
    he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows
    he was bruised for our iniquities
    he is despised and rejected of men
    he is born to a virgin

6. In which Old Testament book is the arrival of Christ riding on a colt into Jerusalem foretold?

7. There is no evidence that God the Father ever referred to Jesus as being His son; in fact, Jesus Himself never laid claim to such a notion.

8. Psalms 41:9-11 is another indicator that Christians believe points to Jesus being Messiah, the Saviour of the world.
Verse 9 says, "Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me."

Which one of Jesus' disciples do Christians believe is referenced as "mine own familiar friend"?
    Simon Zealots
    Simon Peter
    Judas Iscariot
    James the Lesser

"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
    Ezekiel 14
