Bible Life and Death Trivia Questions

1. Who was stoned after he took forbidden items from Jericho when the Israelites conquered the city? (Joshua 7:24-25)

From Quiz
Bible People Who Were Stoned

Answer: Achan

Achan was stoned shortly after he confessed to stealing forbidden items from Jericho when the Israelites conquered the city. The account of Achan's thievery and his stoning is found in Joshua 7. When the Israelites received divine instructions before their miraculous conquest of the the city, they were told to "abstain from the accursed things" and to consecrate all the gold and silver to the LORD. Because Achan refused to follow God's instructions, Scripture states the LORD turned His back on the Israelites and they suffered a stinging military defeat at Ai. In Joshua 7:21, Achan confessed to Joshua he stole "a beautiful Babylonian garment", a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels and two hundred shekels of silver. Shortly after his confession, Achan was then stoned by the Israelites.

2. According to John 20:11-18, who was the first person to see Christ after His resurrection?

From Quiz Some of the Resurrection Appearances of Christ

Answer: Mary Magdalene

The first person to see Christ after His resurrection was Mary Magdalene, as per John 20:11-18. According to Scripture, Mary went to Christ's tomb early on Sunday morning "while it was still dark" and to her amazement the stone had been rolled away from the tomb. Scripture states Mary ran to inform Peter and John, two of the original Twelve Disciples, about what she saw. Peter and John raced to the tomb and when they looked in they saw nothing inside, except linen cloths lying there. The two disciples then returned to their houses. After Peter and John had departed, the passage states Mary Magdalene stood outside the tomb weeping and when she looked inside, she saw two angels in white who asked her why she was weeping. The passage states Mary told the angels she was weeping because, "they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." After saying this, Mary turned around and saw a person who she thought was the gardener. The supposed gardener, similar to the two angels, asked her why she was weeping. In response, Mary said, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away." When the gardener said to her "Mary!" it was then she realized she was actually talking to the resurrected Christ. The passage goes on to tell of Christ instructing Mary to tell the disciples about His resurrection.

3. According to Genesis 40:19, what unnamed employee of the Pharaoh ended up being beheaded?

From Quiz Off With Their Heads!

Answer: The chief baker

The chief baker is the correct answer. According to Genesis 40:1-23, the Pharaoh's chief baker told Joseph about a highly unusual dream he had while they were both in prison. The baker said he dreamed he had three baskets on his head containing baked items for the Pharaoh and "the birds ate them out of the baskets." Joseph informed the baker the dream was a prophecy of doom to come. Joseph said the three baskets represented three days and within that time frame "the Pharaoh will lift your head off from you and hang you on a tree and the birds will eat your flesh." Sure enough, three days later the baker would meet his grisly demise, just as Joseph had predicted, Scripture states. This is the first mention of a beheading in Scripture.

4. According to Genesis 23:15-16, who paid four hundred shekels of silver for a place to bury his dead?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz Dealing With a Grave Matter -- #3

Answer: Abraham

Abraham paid Ephron four hundred shekels of silver for land in Canaan to bury his dead, according to Genesis 23:15-16. Verse 17 goes on to state the field of Ephron was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre. Scripture states a cave was on the land and Abraham used it to bury his wife Sarah. Others buried in the cave were Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah, as per Genesis 25:9, 35:29 and 49:30-31.

5. According to Genesis 47:29, who pleaded with his son not to bury him in Egypt?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz Dealing With a Grave Matter -- #2

Answer: Jacob

Jacob, also known as Israel, begged his son Joseph not to bury him in Egypt, as per Genesis 47:29. Scripture states Jacob wanted to be buried with his fathers, Isaac and Abraham. Joseph vowed his father's wishes would be fulfilled. Genesis 49:30-31 states Jacob, while on his deathbed, also requested his twelve sons bury him in a family cave in Macphelah. According to Verse 31, buried there previously were Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, and Jacob's first wife Leah.

6. What woman who served as a nurse for Rebekah was buried under a terebinth tree, as per Genesis 35:8 in the NKJV?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz Dealing With a Grave Matter -- #1

Answer: Deborah

Deborah was a nurse for Rebekah, the wife of Isaac, according to Genesis 35:8. However, little is known about Deborah as she is mentioned in passing reference. Scripture states she was buried under a terebinth tree and it was called Allon Bachuth. (The KJV and the NIV describe it as an oak tree rather than a terebinth tree. Rather than Allon Bachuth, the KJV states Allonbachuth while the NIV states Allon Bakuth.) This is the first mention in Scripture of the burial of a servant. For the record, there was another woman in the Old Testament called Deborah. She was a prophetess and a judge of Israel, as per Judges 4.

7. What Old Testament king had his skull "crushed" when an unnamed woman in a tower dropped a millstone on him? (Judges 9:53-55)

From Quiz Ten Gruesome Deaths in the Bible

Answer: Abimelech

Abimelech is the correct answer. (In the NIV, he is known as Ambimelek.) According to Judges 9, Ambimelek was as evil as they come, and when a group of men, women and children had taken refuge in a tower in Thebez, he responded by drawing near the tower to set it on fire. Judges 9:53 states an unnamed woman in the tower dropped "an upper millstone on Abimelech's head and crushed his skull." Scripture goes on to state Ambimelech asked his armorbearer to kill him with his sword so no one could say a woman had killed him. The armorbearer fulfilled Ambimelech's wish, but no further details are given. Judges 9:56 states Ambimelech's death was divine retribution. According to Scripture, Ambimelech was so evil he even killed seventy of his brothers as part of his insatiable desire for power. He had ruled Israel for three tyrannical years.

8. A jealous man murdered his brother because the offerings of his brother were more pleasing in the eyes of the LORD. What is the name of the murder victim? (Genesis 4:8)

From Quiz Bible People Who Were Victimized

Answer: Abel

Abel was murdered by his brother Cain even though he didn't do anything wrong. According to Scripture, Abel's offerings were more pleasing in God's eyes and Cain became extremely jealous. The jealousy, and anger, festered to the point Cain killed Abel, as per Genesis 4:3-8. According to Genesis 4:2, Abel was a keeper of sheep and Cain was a tiller of the ground.

9. Elijah, according to Scripture, raised a widow's son from the dead. In what community did the miracle take place? (1 Kings 17:8-24)

From Quiz Bible People Who Experienced Life After Death

Answer: Zarephath

According to 1 Kings 17:8-24, Elijah raised a widow's son from the dead at Zarephath, a town which the LORD instructed Elijah to go to. Scripture doesn't say how old the boy was, or his name. However, there's a suggestion in 1 Kings 17:19 the boy Elijah revived may have been a toddler as the verse tells of the prophet of God taking the dead boy's body out of his mother's arms. Scripture goes on to tell of Elijah stretching himself out on the child three times and crying out "O LORD my God, I pray, let this child's soul come back to him." After Elijah cried out to God, the "soul of the child came back to him", Scripture states. According to 1 Kings 17:9, Zarephath was in the region of Sidon. Incidentally, no names are given in Scripture for the widow or her son.

10. According to John 20:1-2 (King James Version), what was Mary Magdalene's first reaction to finding Jesus' grave empty?

From Quiz He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Answer: She ran to Peter and John

It says in John:1-2, "Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!" It says in verse 11-16 that Mary Magdalene was the first to speak to Jesus after He had risen. When she first saw Him she did not recognize Him. However, when he called her name she knew right away that it was Him. This relates to John 10:27 when Jesus told the disciples that the sheep hear His voice and follow Him.

11. According to I Kings 21 (KJV), how did Jezebel succumb to her death?

From Quiz They Died With Their Boots On

Answer: Pushed from a window and eaten by dogs

Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbaal, the king of Sidon. She was the wife of King Ahab. According to I Kings 21:23, God told Jezebel she would be eaten by dogs outside the city walls of Jezreel. God's word came true in 2 Kings 9, when Jehu had Jezebel thrown from a window and dogs attacked her body. Revelation 2:20 referred to Jezebel as an evil woman.

12. During an uprising, the man who was in charge of forced labor for King Rehoboam was stoned to death with the king barely escaping a similar fate, as per 1 Kings 12:18. What was the name of the man who was stoned?

From Quiz Biblical Deaths - How Deadly Accurate Are You? #5

Answer: Adoniram

The correct answer is Adoniram. 1 Kings 12:18, in the NIV Bible, states: "King Rehoboam sent out Adoniram, who was in charge of forced labor, but all Israel stoned him to death. King Rehoboam, however, managed to get into his chariot and escape to Jerusalem." Rehoboam replaced his father Solomon as king, but his reign was marked by civil war with the northern kingdom breaking away. He reigned over Judah for 17 turbulent years. In the order the books appear in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, Adoniram is the first person identified as a stoning victim.

13. What notable Old Testament character died on the top of a mountain with the Israelites mourning his passing for 30 days?

From Quiz Biblical Deaths - How Deadly Accurate Are You? #4

Answer: Aaron

Aaron is the correct answer. According to Numbers 33:39, Aaron was 123 years old when he died on Mount Hor. Scripture states he died on the first day of the fifth month of the 40th year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. After his death, Moses removed Aaron's garments and put them on his son Eleazar. According to Numbers 20:22-30, in the NIV Bible, "when the whole community learned that Aaron had died, all the Israelites mourned for him thirty days." Aaron, of course, was the brother of Moses and Miriam. He was instrumental in leading the Israelites out of Egypt to the Promised Land. The death of Miriam is reported in the same chapter as well.

14. Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible, dying at the age of 969 years. The second oldest person in the Bible died at the age of 962 years. What's his name?

From Quiz Biblical Deaths - How Deadly Accurate Are You? #3

Answer: Jared

Jared is the correct answer. According to Genesis 5:20, he lived for a total of 962 years. His father's name was Mahalalel and he lived 830 years, as per Genesis 5:16. Jared and Mahalalel are both listed in Luke 3:37 as part of the genealogy of Christ.

15. Which woman died during giving birth to her second child, Benjamin?

From Quiz Biblical Deaths -- How Deadly Accurate Are You?

Answer: Rachel

Rachel is the correct answer. She and her sister Leah were both married to Jacob. Their father was Laban. Rachel was unable to bear children for a number of years but God heard her pleas and enabled her to conceive, as per Genesis 30:22. Sometime later, she gave birth to Benjamin but died during childbirth, according to Genesis 35:17-18. According to verse 19, Rachel was buried on the way to Bethlehem.

16. What woman "painted her face" just prior to her death, according to the King James Version of 2 Kings 9:30?

From Quiz Their Deaths Reflect Their Lives

Answer: Jezebel

In Hebrew Jezebel's name means, "there is no nobility". Jezebel was the daughter of the priest Ethbaal of Tyre and Sidon (ancient Phoenicia or modern-day Lebanon). She was responsible for encouraging her husband, Ahab, who was the king of Israel, to introduce the worship of the god of Tyre, 'Baal-Melkart', to Israel. This form of idolatry went against the exclusive worship of Yahweh (God). The book of 1 Kings, chapter 18, tells us how the prophet Elijah withstood her actions. After Ahab's death, Jezebel's son Jehoram became king of Israel, but the prophet who had replaced Elijah, a man named Elisha, encouraged Jehu to revolt, and he killed Jehoram. Jehu urged Jezebel's eunuchs to kill the queen by throwing her out of a window and leaving her body in the street to be eaten by the dogs. Only her skull, feet, and hands remained, which fulfilled a prophecy of Elijah. (1 Kings 21:19 and 23) and (2 Kings 9: 30-37.) In 1 Kings 21:25, we are told that Ahab was the most wicked king that Israel had; much of that wickedness he owed to the influence of his pagan wife. Jezebel's final act, that of dressing herself in all of her finery and doing her hair and makeup before she was murdered, has led to her being represented as a type of prostitute. As a result, her name has become a slur and is used to define the quintessential "wicked woman".

17. In 2 Samuel 3, why did David's nephew, Joab, kill Saul's uncle, Abner?

From Quiz I Know Who Killed Me

Answer: Abner killed his brother

Abner had killed Joab's brother, Asahel, in the battle at Gibeon. In revenge of his brother's murder, Joab killed Abner. To Abner's death, David replied, "Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel." In the Jewish "Book of Antiquities", Josephus writes that Joab was jealous of Abner because he had found favor in the eyes of the King and so Joab had Abner killed.

18. In 2 Kings 4, the prophet Elisha told a Shunammite woman that she would bear a son. When that son was born and grew up, he came to his father complaining of pain. What part of his body hurt?

From Quiz A Second Chance at Life

Answer: His head

In 2 Kings 4:19 the son said to his father, "On, my head, my head!" Taken to his mother, he died at noon, setting the stage for Elisha's miracle.

19. After murdering Abel, the Lord asked Cain where Abel was. What was Cain's response to this question?

From Quiz Bloody Murder! Infamous Bible Murders

Answer: "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?"

In what we might call a jealous rage, Cain murdered Abel. The Lord could see that immediately, but asked Cain where Abel was. Cain tried to pretend that he was innocent, by saying that he didn't know (Genesis 4:8-9.)

20. According to 1 Kings 12:18, who was stoned by an irate mob when he attempted to carry out the orders of King Rehoboam?

From Quiz Bible People Who Were Stoned

Answer: Adoram

The people of Israel were livid over policies enacted by King Rehoboam and Adoram paid the price with his life. 1 Kings 12 tells of Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, becoming king of Israel and making a crucial mistake when he opted to follow the advice of the young men he grew up with rather than listen to the elders who had advised his father. When Rehoboam learned people were becoming burdened by policies that had been enacted, he sought guidance from his young friends. It boggles the mind, but the advice given to Rehoboam was to completely ignore the concerns of the people and to tell them if they thought his father was tough, he was much tougher. According to Verses 10-11 in the NKJV, he was instructed to tell the people, "My little finger shall be thicker than my father's waist! And now, whereas my father put a heavy yoke on you, I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!" When Rehoboam foolishly followed the advice of his friends, things quickly degenerated in Israel. At one point, the king sent Adoram, who was in charge of revenue for the nation, to meet with citizens and they responded by stoning him. Before long, the country would be involved in a full scale civil war with the northern ten tribes breaking away resulting in two nations -- Israel and Judah.

21. What two men buried Isaac, as per Genesis 35:29?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz Dealing With a Grave Matter -- #3

Answer: Jacob and Esau

Going strictly by Scripture, Joseph is the only person in the entire Old Testament who was buried in a coffin. Genesis 50:26 states he died when he was one hundred and ten years old; after they embalmed him, he was put in a coffin in Egypt. Some four hundred years later, Joseph's bones would be buried in Shechem, as per Joshua 24:32. The burial took place after the Israelites made an exodus out of Egypt and settled in Canaan, known as the Promised Land.

From Quiz Ten Gruesome Deaths in the Bible

Answer: Eglon

Eglon, according to Scripture, suffered a gruesome death when he was stabbed by Ehud, a left-handed Benjamite who was the son of Gera. Judges 3:15 describes Ehud, the second judge of Israel, as a "deliverer" from God. Meanwhile, Verse 17 describes Eglon as "a very fat man." Scripture goes into some gory details about Ehud killing Eglon. According to Judges 3:20-22, Ehud met privately with Eglon and took his left hand and pulled a dagger from his right thigh and plunged it into Eglon's massive belly. The entire dagger went in, even the handle, and the "fat closed over the blade". Scripture goes on to tell of his entrails coming out. Ehud left the scene of the crime by exiting through a porch and locking the doors of the room behind him. It was some time later when Eglon's assistants discovered him dead on the floor. Under Ehud's leadership, the Israelites killed 10,000 Moabites and there was peace in the land for eighty years, according to Judges 3:29-30.

25. What's the name of the woman who was documented as being sexually defiled in the Bible? (Genesis 30:21)

From Quiz Bible People Who Were Victimized

Answer: Dinah

Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah, was the first such person in the Bible. Not much is known about Dinah apart from the fact she engaged in sexual congress with Shechem, as per Genesis 34:1-31. (While this is often described as a rape, the Hebrew text uses a word that only implies loss of virginity.) According to Scripture two of her brothers, Simeon and Levi, went on a ruthless rampage, killing a large number of men to avenge her defilement. After the horrific events of Genesis 34, Dinah is mentioned only one more time in Scripture. In Genesis 46:15, her name appears in a genealogy account, but there is no mention of her having a husband or children.

26. According to 2 Kings 4:32-35, who did Elisha, a prophet of God, raise from the dead?

From Quiz Bible People Who Experienced Life After Death

Answer: A widow's son

Similar to Elijah, Elisha raised a widow's son from the dead. According to Scripture the miracle took place in Shunem. The Website Christiananswers.net reports Shunem "was a little village in the tribe of Issachar, to the north of Jezreel and south of Mount Gilboa." In the NKJV Bible, 2 Kings 4:32-35 tells of the miracle: "When Elisha came into the house, there was the child, lying dead on his bed. He went in therefore, shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to the LORD. And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands; and he stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. He returned and walked back and forth in the house, and again went up and stretched himself out on him; then the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes." Scripture also tells of Elisha's mentor, Elijah, raising a young boy from the dead in much the same manner.

27. What judge of Israel, noted for his strength, single handed caused the collapse of a temple, killing himself and a large number of Philistines?

From Quiz Biblical Deaths - How Deadly Accurate Are You? #4

Answer: Samson

The story of Samson is one of the most colorful ones in the Old Testament. According to Scripture, his long hair was the secret to his strength and when his locks were cut by Delilah, he lost his power. However, with his hair partially grown back, Samson had his final hurrah in the 16th chapter of Judges as he used his remaining strength to get revenge against the Philistines who had taken him captive. While the Philistine rulers were offering "a great sacrifice" to Dagon their god, it was decided to bring out Samson for "entertainment" purposes. A crucial mistake was made when Samson was placed by the pillars that supported the temple. Judges 16:30 states: "Samson said, 'Let me die with the Philistines!' Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived." A children's joke goes like this. Question: Who was the best actor of them all in the Old Testament. Answer: Samson -- he brought down the house.

30. How did the apostle John die?

From Quiz Their Deaths Reflect Their Lives

Answer: he died of natural causes

Many Christians believe that he was the last surviving of the twelve apostles; that he was the only one to die a natural death, and that he died around the age of 94. If this view is correct, it may be considered a reflection of the life that he led. According to Ephesians 6:3-4, King James Version, the Bible says, "Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long upon the earth." Some, however, believe that John is still alive, basing that belief on a passage found in John 21:20-23. Other teachings state that though John was plunged into boiling oil in Rome, he did not suffer from it. The last portion of verse 23 of the passage in question, when Jesus was speaking to Peter, may help to clarify this somewhat. "...yet Jesus said NOT unto him, 'He (John) shall not die'; but 'If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?'" (King James Version) (emphasis mine) Regardless of the viewpoint, the promise of long life for honoring one's parents still remains intact. Honoring means more than just obeying; it also means doing honorable things of which they will not be shamed by.
