Bible By the Numbers Trivia Questions

1. What's the answer when you take the number for the Psalm known as 'The LORD is My Shepherd' (NKJV) and add on the number of chapters in the Gospel of Mark?

From Quiz
Biblical Mathematics -- #5

Answer: 39

The Psalm known as 'The LORD is My Shepherd' is Psalm 23. Meanwhile, Mark, the shortest of the four Gospels has sixteen chapters. Take twenty-three and add on sixteen and you get our answer, thirty-nine. Here's how Psalm 23 reads in the NKJV: "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell[a] in the house of the LORD Forever." In the order the books appear in the New Testament, the Gospel of Mark is the second, appearing after the Gospel of Matthew and before the Gospel of Luke. According to notes in the New King James Version Study Bible, it is believed the author of the book was John Mark, a cousin of Barnabas.

2. What's the answer when you take the age Joseph was when appointed the second most powerful man in Egypt by the Pharaoh and divide by the number of books in the New Testament that start with the letter 'R'? (Genesis 41:46)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #4

Answer: 15

Joseph was thirty years old when the Pharaoh made him the second most powerful man in Egypt, according to Genesis 41:46. Meanwhile, two books in the New Testament start with the letter 'R'. They are Romans and Revelation. Take thirty and divide by two and you get fifteen, our answer. Incredibly, Joseph had been sold into slavery and then tossed into a prison on false charges before he ascended to become the second most powerful man in Egypt. His story is told in Chapter 37 through Chapter 50 of Genesis.

3. What's the answer when you take the number of pieces of silver Joseph's brothers sold him for and add on the number of books addressed to Timothy in the New Testament? (Genesis 37:28)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #3

Answer: 22

The correct answer is twenty-two. According to Genesis 37:28, Joseph's brothers received twenty shekels of silver when they sold him into slavery while there are two books in the New Testament addressed to Timothy. Take twenty and add two and you come up with twenty-two. Although Joseph was sold into slavery and taken to Egypt and eventually tossed into prison, he ascended to become the second most powerful man in the land, surpassed by only the Pharaoh. His story is told in Genesis 37 to 50. The New Testament books addressed to Timothy are First Timothy and Second Timothy. They were both written by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles.

4. What's the answer when you take the number of daughters Jacob had and add on the number of sisters Lazarus had in the New Testament? (Genesis 30:21 and John 11:1)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #2

Answer: 3

The correct answer is three. According to the book of Genesis, Jacob had only one daughter. Her name was Dinah, as reported in Genesis 30:21. In addition to Dinah, Jacob was the father of twelve sons. According to John 11:1, Lazarus had two sisters, Mary and Martha. So, when you take one and add two more, your get three. According to Scripture, Dinah was defiled by Shechem and her brothers Simeon and Levi went on a ruthless killing spree out of vengeance. Meanwhile, John 11 tells of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, even though he had been dead for four days and the body was emitting a foul odor.

5. What's the answer when you take the number of commandments given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai and subtract the number of demons Jesus drove out of Mary Magdalene? (Exodus 20:1-17 and Mark 16:9)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #1

Answer: 3

The correct answer is three. Exodus 20:1-17 states God gave Moses ten commandments on Mount Sinai while Mark 16:9 states Jesus drove seven demons out of Mary Magdalene. So when you subtract seven from ten, the answer is three. Incidentally, here are the ten commandments, as they appear in the NKJV: "And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 'You shall have no other gods before Me. 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image -- any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. 'Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. 'You shall not murder. 'You shall not commit adultery. 'You shall not steal. 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's."

6. The oldest man in Scripture was Methuselah. According to Genesis 5:27, how old was Methuselah at the time of his death?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz for the 'Ages'

Answer: 969

Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible, living for nine hundred and sixty-nine years, according to Genesis 5:27. Jared was his grandfather and Enoch was his father, as per Genesis 5:18-21. Scripture goes on to state Methuselah was the father of Lamech as well as other sons and daughters who are not named. Methuselah's longevity has given birth to today's comical expression that someone or something is "as old as Methuselah".

7. What organization, founded in 1898, is famous for placing Bibles in hotel rooms?

8. What's the answer when you take the number of angels who stayed at Lot's house for an evening and add on the number of times the apostle Paul was beaten with rods? (Genesis 19:1 and 2 Corinthians 11:25)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #5

Answer: 5

According to Genesis 19:1 Lot met up with two angels while sitting at the gate to Sodom and invited them to his house to spend the evening with him. Meanwhile, the apostle Paul, writing in 2 Corinthians 11:25, states he was beaten with rods on three different occasions. Take two and add on three and you come up with our answer, five. The 19th chapter of Genesis goes on to tell of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire and brimstone because of the wickedness of the cities. In addition to being beaten with rods on three different occasions, Paul, in 2 Corinthians 11:24-25, also tells of being whipped five times (receiving thirty-nine lashes each time), shipwrecked three times and once being stoned. In the chapter, Paul goes on to tell of being in constant danger and often being cold, hungry and exhausted.

9. What's the answer when you take the number of friends who INITIALLY visited Job and attempted to comfort him after his ordeal and multiply by the number of fishermen Jesus appointed as part of the Twelve Disciples? (Job 2:11 and Matthew 4:18-22)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #4

Answer: 12

According to Scripture, Job was initially visited by three friends and four of the twelve disciples Jesus appointed were fishermen. Take three and multiply by four and you get our answer, twelve. Job's three friends -- Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar -- visited him after he was clobbered by all sorts of problems -- everything from losing his immense wealth to his seven sons and three daughters. (A fourth man, Elihu, would visit Job later.) However, it seems his friends didn't offer any comfort and generally made things worse for Job. The book of Job has a happy ending, however. Job 42:12-17 states: "Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. So Job died, old and full of days." The four fishermen Jesus appointed as disciples were Peter, Andrew, James and John. Matthew 4:18-22 tells of the four leaving their jobs as fishermen to follow Jesus. The passage in the NKJV states: "And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.' They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him."

10. What's the answer when you take the number of years the Israelites wandered in the wilderness and multiply by the number of times Jesus fed a multitude of people with a pittance of food?

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #3

Answer: 80

The Israelites, according to Exodus 16:35, wandered in the wilderness for forty years while Jesus fed a multitude of people with a pittance of food on two different occasions. Details of Christ's first miracle involving the feeding a multitude of people can be found in Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9 and John 6 while details of the second miracle can be found in Matthew 15 and Mark 8. In the first incident, Christ fed 5,000 men with five loaves and two fish. In the second incident, He fed 4,000 men with seven loaves and a "few small fish". Although Scripture says Jesus fed 5,000 men on the first occasion and 4,000 men on the second, many theologians believe He fed a substantially larger number as the figures do not include women and children. As per the custom of the day, woman and children were not included in census figures. As a result, many theologians believe He fed 15,000 people on the first occasion and 12,000 on the second occasion.

11. What's the answer when you take the number of times the Israelites marched around Jericho before the walls came tumbling down, as per Joshua 6:15, and add the number of books in the New Testament generally considered to have been written by Luke?

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #2

Answer: 15

The correct answer is fifteen. According to Scripture, Joshua and the Israelites marched around Jericho once on each of six consecutive days and then seven times on the seventh day, and the walls came tumbling down, so making thirteen times in total. According to Joshua 6, the Israelites scored a convincing military victory over the people of Jericho after the walls of the city collapsed. Meanwhile, Luke is credited with writing two books in the New Testament -- the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. Luke was a physician and his two books are addressed to Theophilus.

12. What's the answer when you take the number of NAMED children of Adam and Eve and multiply by the number of times Peter denied knowing Christ? (Genesis 4:25 and Matthew 26:34)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #1

Answer: 9

The correct answer is nine. Adam and Eve, according to Scripture, had three children who were named -- Cain, Abel and Seth. (Yes, Genesis 5:4 states Adam and Eve had other sons and daughters, but no details are given as to how many children they had and their names. Note, the question is based on the number of NAMED children.) Meanwhile, according to Matthew 26, Peter denied knowing Jesus three times. So, in other words, the question could read, what do you get when you multiply three times three? As a result, nine is the correct answer.

13. As pointed out in Question 1, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible. Who holds down the record for being the second oldest person in the Bible, living nine hundred and sixty-two years, as per Genesis 5:20?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz for the 'Ages'

Answer: Jared

The correct answer is Jared, who incidentally was the grandfather of Methuselah. According to Scripture, Jared was the son of Mahalalel and the father of Enoch. However, little is known about Jared as he is mentioned in passing reference. Incidentally, Adam, who lived for nine hundred and thirty years, was the third oldest person in the Bible, as per Genesis 5:5.

14. What Old Testament character's name means 'laughter'?

From Quiz Bible Stats

Answer: Isaac

"and Sarah said, 'God has made me laugh, and all who hear shall laugh with me'" (Genesis 21:6) She was talking about naming her son 'laughter', because when God told her she was going to have a child she laughed because she was so old she considered it impossible.

15. What's the answer when you take the number of husbands Abigail had in the Old Testament and add on the number of people who encountered the resurrected Christ on the road to Emmaus? (1 Samuel 25:3 & 42 and Luke 24:13-15)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #5

Answer: 4

The correct answer is four. According to 1 Samuel 25, Abigail had two husbands -- Nabal and David. She married David after Nablal's death. Meanwhile, Scripture tells of Cleopas and an unidentified person encountering the resurrected Christ on the road to Emmaus. Take two and add on two more, and you get our answer, four. 1 Samuel 25:3 reports Abigail was a woman "of good understanding and beautiful appearance" while her first husband Nabal was "harsh and evil". Christ's appearance on the road to Emmaus is one of a number of post resurrection appearances reported in the four Gospels. The appearance on the road to Emmaus, however, is reported only in the Gospel of Luke.

16. What's the answer when you take the number of children Abraham and Hagar had and add on the number of disciples who received the Great Commission from Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew? (Genesis 16:15 and Matthew 28:16)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #4

Answer: 12

Abraham and Hagar had one child together, Ishmael. Meanwhile, 'The Great Commission' was instructions Jesus gave to the eleven disciples to make disciples of all the nations and to baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Take one and add on eleven and you get twelve, our answer. In regards to the Great Commission, here's how Matthew 28:16-19 reads in the NKJV: "Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age'. Amen." The Great Commission was given to eleven disciples, not twelve, as Judas Iscariot had committed suicide as per Matthew 27:3-10. According to Scripture, Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver and after being filled with tremendous remorse, he took his own life.

17. What's the answer when you take the number of books in the Old Testament of the Protestant Bible and add on the age of Jairus' daughter when Jesus raised her from the dead?

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #3

Answer: 51

The correct answer is fifty-one. There are thirty-nine books in the Old Testament of the Protestant Bible, and according to Mark 5:12, Jairus' daughter was twelve years old when she was raised from the dead by Jesus. Add thirty-nine and twelve and you get fifty-one. The thirty-nine books in the Old Testament of the Protestant Bible are: 1.) Genesis 2.) Exodus 3.) Leviticus 4.) Numbers 5.) Deuteronomy 6.) Joshua 7.) Judges 8.) Ruth 9.) 1 Samuel 10.) 2 Samuel 11.) 1 Kings 12.) 2 Kings 13.) 1 Chronicles 14.) 2 Chronicles 15.) Ezra 16.) Nehemiah 17.) Esther 18.) Job 19.) Psalm 20.) Proverbs 21.)

18. What's the answer when you take the number of emaciated cows the Pharaoh saw in his dream and subtract the number of books in the New Testament John is TRADITIONALLY credited with writing? (Genesis 41:3)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #2

Answer: 2

The correct answer is two. According to Genesis 41:3, the Pharaoh saw seven "ugly and gaunt" cows in his dream. Previously, he had seen seven "fine looking and fat cows" in his dream. Meanwhile, John is traditionally credited with writing five books in the New Testament. The books are the Gospel of John, First John, Second John, Third John and Revelation. Some theologians, however, dispute the belief the writer of Revelation was the same John who was one of the original Twelve Disciples of Jesus.

19. What's the answer when you take the number of Psalms in the Old Testament and divide by the number of times Jesus calmed storms on the Sea of Galilee?

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #1

Answer: 75

The correct answer is seventy-five. There are one hundred and fifty Psalms in the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament and according to Scripture Jesus calmed storms on two different occasions on the Sea of Galilee. So when you divide one hundred and fifty by two, the answer is seventy-five. In regards to calming storms on the Sea of Galilee, details of the first miracle can be found in Matthew 8, Mark 4 and Luke 8. Details of the second miracle can be found in Matthew 14 and Mark 6. In the first incident, Christ was sleeping in a boat rowed by the disciples when He calmed the storm. In the second incident, the disciples encountered Christ walking on the water of the Sea of Galilee during a storm. In both cases He rebuked the waves and all was placid, Scripture states.

20. How old was Moses when he first requested permission from the Pharaoh to lead the Israelites out of Egypt? (Exodus 7:7)

From Quiz A Bible Quiz for the 'Ages'

Answer: 80

Exodus 7:7 states Moses was eighty and his brother Aaron was eighty-three when they requested permission from the Pharaoh to leave Egypt. No age is given for their sister Miriam, but many theologians believe she was older than her two brothers. They believe she was the sister of Moses who is referred to in Exodus 2. In that chapter, baby Moses is put in a basket and left along the banks of the Nile River where the Pharaoh's daughter discovered him. Exodus 2:4 tells of Moses' sister looking on from a distance while verse 7 reports that his sister told the Pharaoh's daughter she would call a nurse from among the Hebrew women to nurse the infant. Exodus 15:20 is the first mention of Miriam by name. Notes in the NKJV Study Bible suggest "most likely she is the one intended in the story of Moses' birth" in chapter 2 of Exodus. If this were the case, Miriam would have to be older than her two brothers. In other words, Moses would have been the youngest of the three. According to Deuteronomy 34:7, Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died.

21. What's the answer when you take the age of Manesseh when he became king of Judah and subtract the number of books the apostle Paul wrote to believers in Corinth? (2 Kings 21:1)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #5

Answer: 10

The correct answer is ten. According to 2 Kings 21:1, Manessah became king of Judah at the tender age of twelve while two books in the New Testament are addressed to believers in Corinth. They are 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians. Take twelve and subtract two and you end up with ten, our answer. Make no mistake about it, Manasseh was extremely brutal. 2 Kings 21:16, in the NKJV Bible, states Manasseh "shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another." Verse 6 in the NIV in the same chapter states: "He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD..." According to Wikipedia, the name Manasseh means "causing to forget." Meanwhile, Corinth was a bustling city in ancient Greece. Notes in the New King James Study Bible state the city geographically "was the ideal hub for commerce between Italy and Asia."

22. What's the answer when you take the age Abraham was when Isaac was born and add on the number of elders falling down "before Him who sits on the throne" and worshiping Him "who lives forever and ever"? (Genesis 21:5 and Revelation 4:10)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #4

Answer: 124

Abraham, according to Scripture, was one hundred years old when Isaac was born. Meanwhile, Revelation 4:10 tells of twenty-four elders worshiping Christ. Take one hundred and add on twenty-four and you get our answer, one hundred and twenty-four. In addition to Abraham being one hundred years old at the time of Isaac's birth, his wife Sarah was ninety years old, according to Genesis 17:17. Revelation 4:10 states twenty-four elders fell down "before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: 'You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created'."

23. What's the answer when you take the number of prisoners' dreams Joseph interpreted while in prison and add on the number of churches mentioned in John's vision in the Book of Revelation? (Genesis 40 and Revelation 2 and 3)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #3

Answer: 9

According to Genesis 40, Joseph interpreted two prisoners' dreams while he was incarcerated. Meanwhile, John's vision in the Book of Revelation involved seven churches. Take two and add on seven and you get nine. Genesis 40 states Joseph successfully interpreted the dreams of the Pharaoh's butler and baker. His actions eventually ended up with him being called upon to interpret dreams for the Pharaoh. Scripture states the Pharaoh was so impressed with Joseph's accurate interpretations that he freed him from prison and made him the second most powerful man in Egypt. The visions John had for seven different churches are contained in Revelation 2 and 3. The churches were based in Ephesus ('the loveless church'), Smyrna ('the persecuted church'), Pergamos (the compromising church'), Thyatira ('the corrupt church'), Sardis ('the dead church'), Philadelphia ('the faithful church') and Laodicea ('the lukewarm church'). Tradition holds Revelation was written by John, one of the original Twelve Disciples of Jesus. However, some modern theologians dispute the belief.

24. What's the answer when you take the number of stones David took into battle against Goliath and multiply by the number of people Jesus raised from the dead in the New Testament? (1 Samuel 17:40)

The correct answer is fifteen. According to Scripture, David took five stones and put them in his pouch before entering battle against the Philistine gaint Goliath. It would turn out that David needed only one stone to accomplish the seemingly impossible victory. Meanwhile, Scripture tells of Jesus raising three people from the dead. They are Jairus' daughter, the widow's son at Nain and Lazarus. Multiply five by three and you get the answer -- fifteen. The account of Jesus raising Jairus' daughter from the dead can be found in Mark 5:43 and Luke 8:40-56, while the raising of the widow's son from the dead at Nain is found in Luke 7:11-17. Meanwhile, the account of Jesus raising Lazarus from dead is found in John 11:17-44.

25. What's the answer when you take the number of Jacob's sons and add on the number of pieces of silver given to Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus? (Genesis 35:22-26 and Matthew 26:15)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #1

Answer: 42

The correct answer is forty-two. According to Genesis 35:22-26, Jacob had twelve sons while Judas Iscariot was given thirty pieces of silver to betray Jesus, as per Matthew 26:15. Add twelve and thirty, and you get forty-two. According to Genesis 35:22-26 in the NKJV, here are the names of Jacob's sons: "Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: the sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun; the sons of Rachel were Joseph and Benjamin; the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant, were Dan and Naphtali; and the sons of Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, were Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Padan Aram." According to Scripture, Judas Iscariot was filled with tremendous remorse after he betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver and ended up hanging himself, as per Matthew 26:14 to Matthew 27:3.

26. There is only one woman in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, whose age is given. She was one hundred and twenty-seven years old when she died, as per Genesis 23:1. Who was she?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz for the 'Ages'

Answer: Sarah

The correct answer is Sarah. Sarah, of course, was the wife of Abraham and they had one son, Isaac. Many theologians believe she is the only woman to have her age given in the entire Christian Bible, as well. However, some people dispute this, saying Anna's age is given in the New Testament. Here's what Luke 2:36-38 says about Anna: "Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem." Some people interpret the verse to mean Anna was 84 years old. Some people, however, agree the verse simply states Anna had been a widow for 84 years and as a result there is no way of knowing her age.

Many think it's Jude or Obadiah because they have only one chapter, but Third John has fewer words. 304 to be exact.

28. What's the answer when you take the number of daughters who slept with their father Lot and multiply by the number of foolish virgins in a parable by Jesus? (Genesis 19:30 and Matthew 25:2)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #5

Answer: 10

The correct answer is ten. According to Scripture, Lot's two daughters got him drunk and had him impregnate them. Meanwhile, the parable by Jesus about ten virgins is found in Matthew 25 with five of the virgins being wise and five foolish. The sordid story of Lot unknowingly impregnating his two daughters can be found in Genesis 19:30-38. The account appears immediately after Scripture telling of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire and brimstone and Lot's wife being turned into a pillar of salt because she looked back at the destruction. The names of Lot's two daughters are not given, but according to Scripture, the older daughter gave birth to a son named Moab and the younger to a son named Ben-Ammi. The Parable of the Ten Virgins is one of a total of thirty-nine parables told by Jesus in the Gospels, according to notes in the New King James Study Bible. The five wise virgins were prepared for the coming of the bridegroom while the five foolish virgins were not. Immediately following the Parable of the Ten Virgins is the Parable of the Talents.

29. What's the answer when you take the number of years it did not rain during the days of Elijah and add on the number of righteous people Jesus said who don't need to repent when He told the Parable of the Lost Sheep? (1 Kings 18:1 and Luke 15:7)

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #4

Answer: 102

According to Scripture it did not rain for three years during the days of Elijah. Meanwhile, Jesus is quoted as saying "there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than ninety-nine righteous people who do not need to repent." Take ninety-nine and add on three and you get our answer, one hundred and two. 1 Kings 17 tells of Elijah proclaiming the drought to King Ahab, his bitter adversary. Chapter 18 begins with Elijah announcing "in the third year" the drought was coming to an end. The chapter concludes with a dramatic showdown on Mount Carmel between Elijah and four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and rain falling on the land after Elijah's dramatic victory on the mountain. Meanwhile, in the Parable of the Lost Sheep, Jesus makes reference to there being more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than ninety-nine righteous people who do not need to repent. Here's how the parable of the Lost Sheep reads in Luke 15:1-7 in the NKJV: "Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying' "This Man receives sinners and eats with them'. So He spoke this parable to them, saying: 'What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance."

30. What's the answer when you take Sarah's age at the time of her death and subtract the number of the so-called 'I Am Statements' by Jesus in John? (Genesis 23:1 and John 6:35, 8:12, 10:7, 10:11, 11:25, 14:6 and 15:1).

From Quiz Biblical Mathematics -- #3

Answer: 120

Sarah, according to Genesis 23:1, was one hundred and twenty-seven years old when she died. Meanwhile Jesus is quoted as making seven so-called 'I am Statements' in the Gospel of John. Take one hundred and twenty-seven and subtract seven and you get one hundred and twenty. The seven different I am statements made by Jesus in John are as follows: 1.) 'I am the bread of life' (6:35, 48). 2.) 'I am the light of the world' (8:12). 3.) 'I am the door' (10:7,9). 4.) 'I am the good shepherd' (10:11,14). 5.) 'I am the resurrection and the life' (11:25). 6.) 'I am the way the truth and the life' (14:6). 7.) 'I am the true vine' (15:1). Study notes in the NKJV Study Bible have this to say about the 'I am statements' in the Gospel: "John doesn't take any chances that we might miss what these 'I am' statements suggest. He records certain occasions when Jesus equates Himself with the Old Testament 'I AM' (Yahweh). You can't be more specific than this: 'Most assuredly I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM' (8:58)." Study notes also have this to say: "The Gospel of John is a persuasive argument for the deity of Jesus. It concentrates on presenting Jesus as the Word, that is God (1:1) who became a man (1:4). Thus John meticulously records the statements and describes the miracles of Jesus that can only be attributed to God Himself."
