Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My first Bible quiz was based on Mark 10:46-53, Scripture telling of Jesus healing Bartimaeus of his infirmity. CellarDoor must've been shaking her head in disbelief when she saw my submission. Surely, it was a warning of more dire things to happen in the 'Religion Department' of FunTrivia. The first blunder she politely pointed out was the fact I mentioned Bartimaeus' infirmity in the quiz headline and then asked quiz players to name the infirmity in the first question! (I guess it was akin to asking 'who is buried in Grant's tomb?') Anyway, what disability did Bartimaeus suffer from?
2. I remember doing a quiz in which Drusilla, the wife of Felix, was featured in one of the questions. In those early days, CellarDoor was ALWAYS asking me to provide more information in my answers. (There should be at least two interesting pieces of information in each question, she would patiently tell me time and again.) However, in the case of Drusilla, I pointed out not much is known about her because she is mentioned in passing reference in Scripture. Why did CellarDoor take exception to my lame answer?
3. I guess I thought I was about to cast a spell on FunTrivia players with an idea I had for a new series of Bible quizzes. I submitted the first quiz to LeoDaVinci in which I asked players to give the correct spelling for various Bible characters, starting with simple names like Eve and Job and working up to the likes of Mephibosheth and Zurishaddai. However, my comrade from the Great White North was ice cold to my quiz idea. Why?
4. LeoDaVinci caught me again when I submitted a quiz based on Jacob's twelve sons and their offspring. I made mention in one of the answers that each of the patriarch's sons became a founder of the twelve tribes of Israel. Why did Leo want this statement changed?
5. I did a quiz a while back on the order of the books in the New Testament of the English Bible and it was generally well received. (Thank you, very much.) So, I thought it would be a snap doing a quiz based on the order of books in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible. Not so fast, said CellarDoor. She didn't close the book on my plans, but she said there were definitely problems with my quiz idea. What was the main problem?
6. I once did a question based on the account in Acts 16 about Paul and Silas making their escape from a prison at Philippi after a divinely caused earthquake. CellarDoor refused to allow the question to stand, requesting a re-write. What was wrong with the question?
7. It boggles the mind what one writes even when they believe they are paying full, undivided attention. I once filed a quiz in which a question was about Haman and his adopted daughter Hadassah who would become Queen Esther. Why did CellarDoor change the statement?
8. It must've been one of those quizzes I was writing at 1 a.m. after a long day at work followed by a number of activities at the chapel we attend and family responsibilities. However, in one question, I stated Jacob had prepared to sacrifice Isaac. Why did CellarDoor change the question?
9. I loved doing a quiz about Chapter 13 of the First Corinthians -- the Love Chapter. However, I don't believe CellarDoor loved editing the copy. She wanted a complete re-write of my first draft, pointing out, among other things the word love doesn't even appear in Chapter 13 in the King James Version Bible. Rather than love, the KJV uses the word 'charity.' This even though the word 'love' is used in the NKJV. Was CellarDoor correct in saying this?
10. I filed a quiz about one and only events in the Bible after doing tons and tons of research. (Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any website devoted to such obscure trivia.) In my first installment, I asked a question about who is the only person from Africa named in the New Testament. The answer, I was convinced, had to be Simon of Cyrene, the man who carried the cross for Jesus. The Ethiopian eunuch was not named, so I was convinced I was on solid ground. Well, I quickly became aware I was walking on quicksand, not solid ground, when CellarDoor got her hands on the quiz. She politely pointed out an African is mentioned by name in the account of the Ethiopian eunuch. In fact, she informed me the queen the eunuch worked for is the person who is named. What is the queen's name?
