1 Which of these events is NOT depicted in the Book of Exodus?
Answer: Daniel in the lion's den

The story of Moses, from beginning to end, is one of the most compelling in all of the Bible. The name "Exodus" comes from the ancient Greek word "exodos" which means "going out". In modern times it is often used as a term for leaving, as in "There was a mass exodus from the building when the fire alarm sounded". The story of Daniel in the lion's den can be found in the Book of Daniel, Chapter 6.

2 According to Exodus 1 (New International Version), what happened when the Egyptian slave masters oppressed the Israelites?
Answer: The more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread

See Exodus 1:11-14. The Egyptians' plan in making the Israelites work harder was to prevent them increasing in numbers and becoming a threat (vv8-10). The plan backfired, because it had the opposite effect.

They may have complained or praised God, but this is not mentioned. It is unlikely that slave labourers would be able to work to rule.

9 Pharaoh and his magicians didn't heed the first two plagues against Egypt brought by God through Moses and Aaron. After the plagues of blood and frogs, what was the third plague inflicted upon Egypt according to the King James Version?
Answer: lice

Because temporary affliction and repentance don't bring long term change in the stubborn hearts of man, Pharaoh's heart was hardened after relief from all of the plagues, even the tenth which left pain and heartache on his entire kingdom. Exodus 8:13,16 hold the answer to the question: "And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields ... And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout the land of Egypt."

Answer: They were more and mightier than the Egyptians

As the book of Exodus started, there was a distinct difference in how Joseph's family was viewed. The Pharaoh in Exodus 1 knew or remembered not the great things Joseph did to save Egypt from the great famine. In verse 1:9, Pharaoh said to his people, "Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we." Apparently, up to this time, the Israelites were not in bondage.

21 Moses' birth

Moses was the son of Amram (father) and Jochebed (mother), both of whom were Levites. He had a brother named Aaron who was three years older, and an older sister named Miriam.

Exodus 2:2-10 (NLT) tells us that Moses' mother became pregnant with him, knew that there was something special about him and kept him hidden for three months. This was in defiance of the Pharaoh's edict that all Hebrew baby boys had to be drowned at birth. There came a point where she was unable to hide him any longer, so her scheme was to place the baby in a basket of reeds and papyrus, waterproofed with tar and pitch and then hide it in the reeds of the Nile River. Miriam stayed behind to see what would happen.

The baby was found by the Pharaoh's daughter, who took pity on him. Miriam approached the princess and asked if she could find a Hebrew woman to nurse the child. The princess agreed and Moses ended up back with his mother, supported by the princess. When Moses grew older, he was taken back to the Pharaoh's daughter who promptly adopted him and named him Moses, meaning "I lifted him out of the water."

Answer: By worshiping idols

Worshiping idols can be interpreted as happening when anything that is not God takes a higher place than God in someone's life. It could be models, cars, money, movie stars, sports, etc (Exodus 20:4). In this case, Adam has made an idol of a calf and is literally worshiping it.

28 Who did God choose to be the one who would deliver the Israelites from slavery?
Answer: Moses

Here's what it says in Exodus 1:12,22:
"But the more they (Egyptians) afflicted them (Israelites), the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel. So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, 'Every son (of the Israelites) who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.'"

It was during this time that Moses was born, but his life was spared because his mother put him in a basket shortly after he was born and set it in the reeds along the bank of a river. Pharaoh's daughter found him and decided to keep him and raised him as her son. When Moses grew up he went back to his own people. One day he saw an Egyptian mistreating one of the Hebrew people and he killed the Egyptian and fled for his life into the land Midian. He married Zipporah, the daughter of a priest and had a family. He had lived there for forty years when God called him to return to Egypt and secure the release of the Israelites in Exodus 3:10.

29 Israel's first battle after leaving Egypt was with the Amalekites. Where was the battle fought?

  From Quiz: Uncle Al's Bible Trivia - Exodus #4
30 Shortly after being provided miraculous provision from God in the form of the manna, the people once again complained, this time of thirst. To provide water for the people of Israel, God instructed Moses to take his staff and strike a rock, which God himself would stand upon. Where was Moses instructed to take the elders of Israel to show them God's might and provision yet again?
Answer: Horeb

The staff which had confounded the magicians of Egypt by turning into a serpent, turning the Nile into blood, and parting the Red Sea was put to use again by striking the rock at Mount Sinai (also known as Mount Horeb). Of course it was God's power that performed the feat, and not a magic wand, a symbol of God's power. Exodus 17:6 stated - "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock; and there shall come water out of it, that they may drink. And Moses did so in sight of the elders of Israel."

31 Only three days after they witnessed God's power in delivering them from Pharaoh, the children of Israel murmured against Moses because they had no drinkable water. What was the place named? (Hint: The name comes from the same root word as the name Naomi gave herself after her husband and sons died.)
Answer: Marah

Exodus 15:23 recorded, "and when they came to Ma'rah, they could not drink of the waters of Ma'rah for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Ma'rah." In Ruth 1:20, Naomi took the name Ma'ra because she felt the Lord had dealt with her bitterly.

33 Pharaoh had a change of heart about releasing the Israelites after the final plague, and chose to pursue them to enslave them again. How many chariots Pharaoh used in the pursuit of the Israelites in total is unknown. But Exodus 14:7 specified a certain amount of chosen chariots, most likely fitted for battle. How many chosen chariots were there?
Answer: 600

In Exodus 14:7, the Bible recorded that 600 choice chariots were used, as well as others. The choice chariots were most likely strongly built to endure the rigors of battle. This verse suggests there were others, but perhaps they were used merely for transportation purposes.
