Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What event is recorded in Acts 2:1-4 (NKJV), which directly relates to the promise of Jesus to send the Holy Spirit?

Answer: The Day of Pentecost

The correct answer is The Day of Pentecost. It was a fulfillment of Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit in John 14:16-18 and Acts 1:8.

According to the passage in Acts, we see a glimpse of the joyous anticipation all the believers gathered in the room must have experienced, the sound of a rushing mighty wind as the Holy Spirit supernaturally filled each person. As a result, the people spoke in other tongues. From now on, the Holy Spirit would indwell all believers.

2. In Acts Chapter 3 (NIV), there is a story of healing. What was the ailment that the man in question suffered from?

Answer: Lameness

You can read this story in Acts 3:1-10. The man looked at Peter and John, expecting to receive something from them (v5), for example, some money. But his healing was instant, so he was able to walk and praise God. Many people would have seen him there daily begging, so they would have been amazed to see him healed.

3. How did Jesus heal the servant of the centurion Cornelius (as described in Luke's Gospel)?

Answer: He commended his faith and said his servant was already healed.

What is significant is that Cornelius was a Gentile and felt he was unworthy.
He realized Jesus' authority, however, and his faith in Jesus was all that was needed for his servant to be healed. Cornelius is considered to be one of the first Gentile converts to Christianity. You can read this story in Luke 7:1-10.

4. In the opening chapter of the book of Revelation, the author John states that he was on the island of Patmos when he heard a voice from heaven and received a powerful vision. But where is the island of Patmos?

Answer: It was in the Aegean Sea near the island of Rhodes

Patmos is a small island in the eastern part of the Aegean Sea, which separates Greece from modern-day Turkey. It is part of what are called "the Dodecanese", or "the twelve islands". It is often assumed that its author John was also the apostle, brother of James, and the author of the Gospel of John and three short epistles. But this is not a certain identification, since the subject and theme of Revelation are unlike anything else in the New Testament and, while the works by John the apostle are written in quite decent koinē Greek, the Greek of Revelation is rather inferior. For that reason, its author is usually called "John the Theologian" to distinguish him from "John the Evangelist".

5. Who tried to dissuade the proconsul Sergius Paulus from believing the gospel, in Acts 13?

Answer: Bar-Jesus, also known as Elymas

See Acts 13:4-12. It was common for high-ranking Roman officials to have their own personal sorcerer. But Elymas knew that if the proconsul became a Christian, he would almost certainly lose his job. This passage is also notable, because it is the first time Saul is called by his new name: Paul.

6. Paul wrote letters to the Christians in several cities in the Roman Empire. Which community, as far as we know, did he NOT visit in person?

Answer: Colossae

In the opening to his letter to the community in Colossae, Paul says only that he "has heard of their faith", and in his letter to Philemon that he hopes to visit them at some point. Colossae was a prosperous inland community in the province of Phrygia, in what is now southwest Turkey.

Chapter 16 of Acts of the Apostles describes the visit of Paul and Silas to Philippi, a city in the northern Greek province of Macedonia; chapter 18 his sojourn at Corinth, capital city of the province of Achaea (Greece); a first visit to Ephesus, the capital city of the province of Asia, is mentioned at Acts 18:21; and then follows an account of the well-known riot at Ephesus in chapter 19. The letters to all three churches reveal further details of his time in those cities.

7. What disturbing event happened when Paul arrived in Troas (Acts 20)?

Answer: A young man fell out of an upper-floor window.

Paul has come to Troas by sea from Greece and preached the gospel in an upstairs room, going on until midnight. A sleepy young man named Eutychos fell out of the third-floor window and was thought to have died in the fall. Paul embraced the youth and insisted that he was still alive. He continued his discourse until morning, and as he departed the youth, indeed alive, was brought to him. His name name "Eutychos" in Greek means "lucky".

The other incidents did all happen to Paul. Paul's imprisonment at Philippi and the earthquake is found in Acts 16, the riot took place in Ephesus when the crowd took issue with Paul's teaching, gathered in the theatre and shouted for two hours, "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians" (Acts 19), and in Acts 14 when Paul and Barnabas healed a lame man at Lystra, the inhabitants mistook them for the Greek gods Hermes and Zeus.

8. The early church at Philippi was addressed in a letter by Paul. Originally the town had been called Crenides, meaning "Fountains" in Greek. Who was responsible for the name change in 356 B.C.?

Answer: the father of Alexander the Great

Philip ll of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great, named the ancient city after himself, although it was later abandoned in the 14th century after the Ottoman conquest. Paul and Silas were accused of disturbing the city by spreading the gospel during Paul's second missionary journey.
(See the book of Acts 16:16-24.)

9. According to Acts chapter 11, where was the term 'Christian' first used in reference to Jesus's disciples?

Answer: Antioch

Acts chapter 11 deals with the spread of Christianity to the Gentiles. Peter, in a vision described in the chapter, was given a vision by God that he was to preach Jesus to non-Jewish peoples, thereby spreading the Good News that salvation was (is) readily available to all. It's not reserved for any certain sect, denomination or particular group of people.

10. To whom did Paul preach the good news of Jesus' resurrection at Thessalonika?

Answer: Jews and Greeks

According to the 17th chapter of Acts some Jews believed in Paul's teaching and many Greeks also believed in Christ. Many Christians feel that in light of that fact the Gospel or Good News of Christ was extended to all mankind, not just those of the Jewish faith.
