Bible Word-Themed Trivia Questions

1. What does the book of Jonah describe as a "great city"? Note: King James Version

From Quiz
Great Things in The Bible

Answer: Nineveh

Jonah mentions Nineveh as a "great city" four times, in verses 1:2, 3:2, 3:3 and 4:11. Jonah is one of the minor Old Testament prophets, who God sends to the people of Nineveh.

4. What king, according to 2 Samuel 12:19, correctly perceived his seriously ill infant son had died when he saw his servants whispering?

From Quiz Whispers and Whispering in the Bible

Answer: David

David is the correct answer. 2 Samuel 12:19 states David perceived his seriously ill infant son had died when he saw his servants whispering. Sure enough, David's perception was true. The unnamed baby was the result of an adulterous affair between David and Bathsheba. Later, Bathsheba would give birth to Solomon, the man who would replace David as king. For further details about the baby's death and the birth of Solomon, see 2 Samuel 12:15-25.

From Quiz Can You 'Rise' to the Occasion?

Answer: Moses

Moses, of course, is the correct answer. Exodus 8:20 in the NKJV quotes God as saying to Moses: "Rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh as he comes out to the water. Then say to him, 'Thus says the LORD: '"Let My people go, that they may serve Me"'." Moses would eventually get permission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, but only after ten highly punishing plagues were unleashed against the Pharaoh and the Egyptians by God.

When Potiphar returned home, she falsely accused Joseph of attempted rape and he was imprisoned.

13. Genesis 31:24 in the NKJV tells of God appearing to a Syrian man in a dream, telling him, "Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad." Who was the man who received the divine instructions?

From Quiz A Bible Quiz That's Truly 'Bad'

Answer: Laban

The correct answer is Laban, the father of Rachel and Leah and the father-in-law of Jacob. Genesis 31:24 is part of a passage telling of Laban and Jacob having a major feud, with Jacob fleeing with his two wives, Rachel and Leah. After Jacob fled, Laban pursued his son-in-law and his two daughters, but before he caught up with them, he was warned by God in a dream to be careful in what he said. Verse 24 in the NKJV quotes God saying: "Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad." Rather than refer to Laban as a Syrian, the NIV refers to him as an Aramean. The passage goes on to tell of Laban and Jacob finally resolving their differences and making a covenant with each other. For further details, see Genesis 31:1-55.

15. Who did God tell He would make the father of many nations, this even though he was childless at the time? (Genesis 17:4-5)

From Quiz The Many Mentions of 'Many' in the Bible

Answer: Abram

In Genesis 17:4 God is quoted in the NKJV as telling Abram: "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations." In the next verse God announces Abram's new name would be Abraham, reflecting the fact God designated him to become "the father of many nations." Scripture goes on to tell of Abraham and his wife Sarah becoming the parents of a boy, Isaac. This even though Abraham was one hundred years old and Sarah was ninety and they had been unable to conceive.

16. Judges 4:21 in the NKJV tells of a woman taking a tent peg and a hammer and after "softly" approaching a Canaanite army commander who was sleeping, she drove the peg into the man's temple. What was the woman's name?

From Quiz This Bible Quiz Isn't Hard, It's Actually 'Soft'

Answer: Jael

Jael, the wife of Heber, "softly" approached Sisera, a Canaanite army commander, and hammered a tent peg through his head while he was sleeping in her tent. Judges 4 tells of Sisera's army being routed by the Israelites, led by Deborah and Barak, and the army commander running from the battle scene. Sisera ended up at Jael's tent and she pretended to be friendly and sympathetic to his plight so he accepted her offer to rest in his tent. It was while Sisera was sleeping, Jael showed her true side and killed him. Judges 4:21 in the NKJV explains things this way: "Then Jael, Heber's wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died."

Answer: 12 years

The girl Jesus raised from the dead was twelve years old, as per Mark 5:42. Although the girl is not identified, Scripture states her father was Jairus, the ruler of a synagogue. The miraculous raising of Jairus' daughter from the dead is one of three such cases documented in the New Testament. The Gospel of Luke tells of Jesus raising a widow's son from the dead at Nain while the Gospel of John tells of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Needless to say, people were amazed and astounded when Jesus performed such miracles.

19. Numbers 11:14 in the NKJV tells of a man pouring his heart out to God saying, "I am not able to bear all these people alone, because the burden is too heavy for me." Who was the man who said he could no longer lead the Israelites alone?

From Quiz All Alone in the Old and New Testaments

Answer: Moses

Moses, it appears, was near the end of his rope when he poured his hear out to God, saying he was "not able to bear all these people alone".

22. "Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark." In this passage from James 3:5 (NIV), in what capacity is the author using the spark?

From Quiz It Only Takes A Spark

Answer: As a caution against fake news

James is pointing out how the smallest of things can create great change or cause greater damage. He provides the examples of a small bit being placed into a horse's mouth, allowing man to have better control over a great beast. He tells of the mighty ship being steered by a tiny tiller. Likewise the tongue, such a tiny portion of our bodies has the power to speak the name of God in reverence and sing His praise, but it also has the power to spread rumours and curse our fellow man. As such, James denounces it is a "restless evil." This question was sparked by Phoenix Rising team member pollucci19.

23. According to Genesis 22:1-18, Isaac almost became a burnt offering. Who was about to kill him and put him on a fire when God stopped him at the last minute?

From Quiz Fire and Ten Different People in the Bible

Answer: Abraham

The story of Abraham preparing to sacrifice Isaac is one of the best known stories in the Old Testament. Scripture reports God commanded Abraham to take his son Isaac to a mountain in the region of Moriah and to sacrifice him as a burnt offering. Just as Abraham was preparing to sacrifice Isaac, Scripture reports an angel of the LORD called out and told him to spare his son because it was evident Abraham feared God. After the angel called out, Abraham spotted a ram in the thicket and used it as his sacrificial offering on the fire he built. The story is told in the 22nd chapter of Genesis. Many Christians compare this episode to God's sacrifice of His own son, Jesus in the New Testament.

There's no record of Nicodemus being at the wedding, and no record of Jesus making his own wine at the Last Supper.

25. Who advised the Egyptians be taxed twenty per cent of their produce to prepare for seven years of famine? (Genesis 41:34)

From Quiz Hope This Bible Quiz Isn't Too Taxing

Answer: Joseph

Joseph is the correct answer. He made the recommendation for a twenty per cent tax after he interpreted two dreams of the Pharaoh, as per Genesis 41. In the first dream, the Pharaoh told Joseph he saw seven fat cows and seven emaciated cows. Then in the second dream, he said he saw seven good heads of grain and seven blighted heads. The Pharaoh was troubled because no one could apparently tell him what his dreams meant. The Pharaoh's chief butler had served time in prison with Joseph and told the Pharaoh Joseph had successfully interpreted a dream for him. As a result, Joseph was called upon to interpret the two dreams for the Pharaoh. When he interpreted the dream, Joseph informed the Pharaoh Egypt would experience seven years of bountiful harvests, followed by seven years of famine. Scripture goes on to tell of Joseph advising the Pharaoh to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years with the food being kept in reserve for seven years of famine. The Pharaoh responded by following Joseph's advice and promoting him to the second highest position in Egypt. Details can be found in Genesis 41.

From Quiz Tents -- Ten Trivial Tidbits to Tackle Today

Answer: Lot

Lot is the correct answer. According to Scripture, Lot and Abram, who would later become known as Abraham, lived together, but there was strife between their herdsmen. So they opted to go their separate ways. Genesis 13:10-13, in the NKJV, tells what happened next: "And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD." Scripture goes on to tell of the LORD destroying Sodom and Gomorrah because of its wickedness.
