Genesis means coming into being, and that is what the first book of the Bible recounts - the creation of the world we know, its re-creation after the great Flood, and the establishment of the group of people known as the Israelites who have a special relationship with their God. It finished with the Israelites living in Egypt, ready for the arrival of Moses.

Genesis Bible Trivia Questions

1. It seems that on the sixth day of creation, or shortly after, God created a garden for the use of Adam, but whereabouts was it?

From Quiz
A Neophyte Looks at Eden

Answer: Eastward in Eden

Genesis chapter 1 verses 24 to 31 (KJV), tells us that on the sixth day of creation God created all living things (except the fishes and fowl which had arrived on the fifth day) including man. Genesis 2:8 " And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; ..."

2. How many stories tall was Noah's ark?

From Quiz I Noah Guy Who's Got an Ark

Answer: 3

The Ark was three stories tall and at the top it had a roof with a small opening below it. Interestingly, there was no steering wheel on the Ark, God simply needed it to float and he was made to float, and he steered the Ark at will. Noah was a farmer, but among the reasons God chose him was that he could build ships, and it took Noah about 100 years to build the Ark.

3. Adam and Eve had three children (at least). We all know Cain and Abel, but who was their third son?

From Quiz The Families of Genesis

Answer: Seth

The name Seth means either anointed or compensation. In a way, Seth was compensation for the death of Abel. Abel was killed by Cain in Genesis 4:8. In the NIV it says, "Now Cain said to his brother Abel, 'Let's go out to the field.' While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him." You can first read about Seth in Genesis 4:25 which says, "Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, 'God has granted me another child in place of Abel since Cain killed him.'"(also NIV) (Ilona_Ritter)

4. Who was the mother of Reuben and Simeon?

From Quiz Bible Literacy 5: Jacob's Children

Answer: Leah

Even though Jacob worked for, and wanted to marry Laban's daughter Rachel, Laban gave his daughter Leah to Jacob instead. According to Laban, custom called for the oldest child to be married first. Reuben and Simeon were the first two children born to Jacob from his first wife, Leah. Upon entering the Promised Land, each one of Jacob's children was given a portion of land for them and their descendants. Because Reuben was the first born, he was given the birthright, but lost it when Jacob learned that his son had committed an indiscretion with Rachel's maidservant Bilhah. His birthright was then given to his nephews, Ephraim and Manasseh. When the Israelites entered Canaan, the tribe of Reuben settled east of the Jordan River where land was fertile. Unfortunately, it also left them open for attack. Jacob's second son, Simeon, never got his own tribal area. Instead, he and his descendants blended in with his brother Judah's tribe.

5. This story begins with God bargaining with a Biblical patriarch to see if God will spare or smite the wicked city. Which patriarch begs God to consider leniency?

From Quiz Good, Evil, and Sin: The Wicked Story of Sodom

Answer: Abraham

Abraham is the uncle of Lot, a good man living in the otherwise thoroughly wicked city of Sodom, and for the sake of his nephew pleads with God to consider the possibility of good people living there rather than send down judgment immediately. In Genesis 18:18, God decides to tell Abraham what he will do in Sodom rather than conceal his plans, due to Abraham's relationship with God as the father of the Jewish people.

6. What is the name of Adam and Eve's third son?

From Quiz The First Volume of the Bible

Answer: Seth

The first son of Adam and Eve was Cain, followed by Abel. Cain killed Abel because he was jealous that God accepted his brother's offering and not his. Cain was punished for this by God. After all this, Eve gave birth to her third son Seth.

7. When Abram and Sarai (who later became Abraham and Sarah) came to Egypt, Abram said Sarai was his sister, not his wife. He was afraid that if he told the truth, he would be killed. What happened next?

From Quiz The Patriarchs did WHAT?!

Answer: Sarai became a part of Pharaoh's harem.

Abram was indeed Sarai's brother as they shared the same father. Pharaoh's people showered Abram with gifts to get her to become a part of Pharaoh's household - that is believed to be an euphemism for joining the harem. However, G-d sent the plague onto the Pharaoh's house until the latter realized the truth of the matter, restored Sarai to Abram, and sent the couple away. Interestingly enough, Genesis then repeats a very similar story twice - about Abraham and Sarah, and then about Isaac and Rebecca.

8. How many days of creation are there according to Genesis?

From Quiz Creation According to Genesis 1

Answer: six

There are two primary views of the six days of creation. First there are those who believe that the six days were 24 hours each. Then there are those who believe that the days were anywhere from thousands of years to millions of years each. Personally, I would lean more towards a literal interpretation, but the main point to be conveyed here is that God is the Creator and all that exists is His creation.

9. According to Genesis, how long did it take for God to finish all His work of Creation?

From Quiz BBB Bible Series: Genesis

Answer: Six days

"Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done." - Genesis 2:1,2 Many doubt we can take the Genesis account of creation literally. The writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews, however, says, "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible." (Hebrews 11:3)

10. According to the NKJV Bible, in Genesis, who said: "I did not laugh"? (Genesis 18:15)

From Quiz He Said, She Said - in Genesis

Answer: Sarah, to the Lord and to Abraham

Sarah, out of fear, denies laughing at the idea that she will have a child in her old age. The angel of the Lord, recorded here as speaking as the Lord, knows better, and says so. Both Abraham and the angel of the Lord are present.

11. The first city mentioned in the book of Genesis was named "Enoch". Who built this city?

From Quiz Genesis: The Beginning of Civilization

Answer: Cain

"Then Cain went out from the presence of the LORD and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son-Enoch" - Genesis 4:16-17. As a punishment for murdering his brother Abel, God had sent Cain out of his presence, away from his family and home to be a wanderer and vagabond. Building a city and naming the city after his son may have indicated that Cain had come to recognize the importance of community and the value of family relationships.

12. Adam first called his wife "woman". Later, after eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he changed her name to Eve. What did her new name mean?

From Quiz Genesis: The Beginning of Families

Answer: The mother of all living

"And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living" (Genesis 3:20). Eve is similar to a word meaning to live or living.

13. Adam and Eve are credited with committing the first sin on earth in the Garden of Eden. What sin did they commit?

From Quiz Genesis: The Beginning of Sin

Answer: Ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

With all the perfection and beauty of the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That was the only tree they had been commanded not to eat from by God. This story begins in Genesis 2.

14. According to the Bible, from what did God form man?

From Quiz Genesis: The Beginning of Mankind

Answer: The dust of the earth

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being." Genesis 2:7 (New King James Version) With most of God's work of creation He spoke and it was done, but when He created man, He personally formed him from the dust of the earth and breathed life into him.

15. "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the ___________ was hovering over the waters" (Genesis 1:2). What was hovering over the waters (according to the New International Version of the Bible)?

From Quiz Genesis: The Beginning of the Universe

Answer: Spirit of God

"Genesis" is a Greek word that means "beginnings". The entire book of Genesis is about many different beginnings and covers at least 2000 years of history. Many believe it is not intended to be a book of historical facts, but is more about the spiritual interpretation of the facts it presents. The opening verse of this book reads, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1)

16. How much did Joseph's brothers receive for selling him to the Ishmaelites?

From Quiz Genesis: In the Beginning, Finally!

Answer: 20 shekels of silver

After the brothers decided to place Joseph into a pit instead of killing him, Judah talked the group into selling him to the Ishmaelites. After they sold him for 20 shekels of silver, they took his tunic, dipped it in goat's blood, then gave it to their father. He thought his son had been killed by a wild beast. The Ishmaelites then in turn sold him into Egypt. (Genesis 37:27-33)

17. Noah begat Ham. Ham begat Canaan. These descendants of theirs lived in Jerusalem. Who were they?

From Quiz Biblical Genealogy

Answer: Jebusites

In the list of the descendants of Noah (Genesis 10), the Jebusites are traced through the line of Ham and Canaan. Solomon's temple was erected on the site of a threshing floor owned by the Jebusite Araunah, which had been purchased by King David in 2 Samuel 24:16-24.

18. What was the result of Rebekah's pregnancy when Isaac was 60?

From Quiz Genesis: In the Beginning Part II

Answer: Twins: Esau and Jacob

When Rebekah had been barren for 20 years, Isaac prayed to the Lord for her. She conceived with twins. Esau was the first born, then Jacob. (Genesis 25:21-26)

19. In Genesis chapter 34, Jacob settled near Shechem. It is here that his daughter Dinah was defiled. How did her brothers avenge her?

From Quiz Uncle Al's Bible Trivia - Genesis #5

Answer: Slew the males as they recovered from circumcision

In Genesis 34:25, the Bible tells of how Simeon and Levi slew the adult males in Shechem. The treachery involved cost both of them when Jacob gave out his blessing on his deathbed many years later. The actions taken were done to defend their sister's honor, but put them all in a precarious position as they were few in a foreign land. God moved Jacob and family to Beth-el shortly thereafter, before the allies of Shechem could possibly seek revenge.
