Bible People Trivia Questions

1. God had a message for the king of Judah and told Isaiah to first inscribe it on tablets then give it as a name to his son -- Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz. Who was king at that time?

From Quiz
Longest Names in the Bible

Answer: Ahaz

The name was significant, containing messages from God to Judah's king Ahaz. The years of Isaiah's ministry in Judah were turmultous. Tiglath-Pileser III was conquering much of the Middle East, his mighty empire stretched from the Persian Gulf all the way to Egypt. The kings of Syria and Israel wanted to form an alliance against the Assyrians with Ahaz, but he refused. Israel was soon devastated by conflicts. It was during this time that Isaiah's second son was born. God had Isaiah name his son Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, which means 'In making speed to the spoil, he hastens the prey'. It can also be interpreted as 'Swift to the spoil, quick to the plunder' - God's message to Ahaz was that the enemies of Judah would be crushed. This came to pass in 732 BC when Syria and Israel fell to the Assyrians. Ten years later, Assyria looted Israel's wealth and the citizens had almost no identity. Many fled, those that remained fused with foreigners forming the Samaritan race. Judah was soon laid waste by Assyria.

2. "I was created from the rib of a man, becoming the first woman on earth. Who am I?"

From Quiz "Blessed are the women...."

Answer: Eve

According to the Bible, Eve was the first woman on earth. And yes, also the reason why man was cast out of the garden of Eden. Her story can be found in chapters 2, 3 and 4 of Genesis.

3. God created me with His own hands and my wife out of me.

From Quiz Some Influential People of the Bible

Answer: Adam

In Genesis, Adam ate the Forbidden Fruit and brought sin into the world. Some theologians believe that Adam ate the fruit as the representative of all mankind (even though he did not know it!), making the decision to eat for everyone; thus "all man sinned" (Rom 3:23). Not all Christians accept this view, but many conservative Christians believe in it. Liberals have another system of theology that would be too complicated to delve into here.

4. Out of the four names below, which one was a queen of Egypt and a sister-in-law of Hadad, a son of the king of Edom? (1 Kings 11:19)

From Quiz A Quick Look at Queens and Women with Power

Answer: Tahpenes

Tahpenes is the correct answer. However, her name appears in passing reference in the Old Testament. 1 Kings 11:19 states the Pharaoh gave the unnamed sister of Tahpenes as a wife to Hadad, a son of the king of Edom who fled to Egypt after being defeated in battle by the Israelites. Scripture goes on to state the unnamed sister of Queen Tahpenes was the mother of Genubath and she weaned the infant in the Pharaoh's house. Hadad would go on to become a major adversary of Solomon.

5. We'll start our quiz about young and powerful people in the Bible with a man who, according to Genesis 32:22-32, spent an evening wrestling with God. What was the man's name?

From Quiz A Quick Look at the Young and Powerful

Answer: Jacob

Jacob, of course, is the correct answer. No age is given for Jacob at the time of his wrestling match, but it's apparent he was in the prime of his life. Details about the bizarre wrestling match can be found in Genesis 32:22-32. Scripture states Jacob was given the name Israel as a result of the incident because he "struggled with God and with men and... prevailed." The passage also states Jacob called the site of the wrestling match Peniel: "For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."

6. God formed which woman from her husband's rib?

From Quiz The Ultimate Bible Women Quiz!

Answer: Eve

Genesis 2:22-25, New American Standard Bible: "The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. The man said, 'This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.' For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh." These are some of my favorite Bible verses. I think they are very romantic. Genesis 3:20 explains that Adam renamed her "Eve" because she was "the mother of all the living" (New American Standard Bible). Even though "Adam" means "man", "Eve" means "life".

7. Nicodemus' name can be found in only one of the four Gospels. What Gospel is he mentioned in?

From Quiz A Quick Look at Nicodemus in the Bible

Answer: John

John is the correct answer. Using the NKJV, Nicodemus' name appears five different times in the Gospel. His name appears in John 3:1, 3:4, 3:9, 7:50 and 19:39. However, there is no mention of Nicodemus in any other book in the Bible.

8. "Let my people go!" This man stood up to Pharaoh. Who was this prophet?

From Quiz Bible People in Haiku

Answer: Moses

Moses was born to Hebrew parents but raised by Pharaoh's daughter as her own son. God chose Moses to secure the Israelites release from the Egyptians. Moses then led the Israelites through the desert towards the land God had promised to them.

9. Who is the first murderous villain to appear in the Bible?

From Quiz Big Time Baddies

Answer: Cain

In Genesis, chapter 4, we learn of Cain's murderous rage toward his brother. Cain was jealous that Abel gained more favor with God, took his brother out into the field and killed him. When God asked where his brother was, Cain uttered a phrase we still use to this day, "Am I my brother's keeper?" The worst I ever did out of jealousy toward my brother was split his lip. I still feel a little guilty about that now, some thirty years later.

10. Jehoiakim is the correct orthography (in the NIV and most other English translations I've checked) for the man we would call Joachim in plain English. What was Jehoiakim's profession whenever he is mentioned in the Old Testament?

From Quiz Jehoiakim, Joseph, James

Answer: King

Jehoiakim was a King of Judah, born under the name Eliakim. He was the second son to King Josiah. When Pharaoh Necho of Egypt fought against the Assyrians, Josiah refused passage to the Egyptian army. In the ensuing fight and its aftermath, Josiah was killed, and his successor Jehoahaz was taken prisoner by the Pharaoh. Pharaoh then appointed Eliakim King of Judah, and renamed him Jehoiakim. Jehoiakim was 25 when he was crowned King of Judah and remained on the throne for eleven years. During this period Judah was not a strong country: it was a foreigner (the Egyptian Pharaoh) who decided that Jehoiakim would be King, and another foreigner (Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon) made Jehoiakim his vassal for three years. When Jehoiakim finally gathered the force to rebel against Nebuchadnezzar, Jehoiakim was soundly defeated. Although the bible books 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles, which relate the story of King Jehoiakim, are structured as history textbooks, both bible books insist that the downfall of Jehoiakim and his kingdom (Judah) were caused by his sinful life. Indeed, Jehoiakim did not scrupulously follow the Lord's Commandments. Instead of destroying all heathen sacrificial places, Jehoiakim used some of them to worship false deities. The other professions are well known in the Bible. Some examples: Luke 2:8-20 tells about the adoration of Jesus by the shepherds; many Psalms were created by "the Chief musician"; there have been named Bible books after three "major" prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel) and twelve minor prophets.

11. Who is generally considered to be the founding father of the Jewish nation of Israel?

From Quiz House of the Rising Son

Answer: Abraham

Originally known as Abram, God changed his name to Abraham, meaning father of a multitude. God promised Abraham that his descendants would form a great nation.

12. Who is thought to have been the first and possibly the oldest apostle?

From Quiz Twelve of a Kind

Answer: Andrew

Andrew was the first apostle chosen by Christ and is also thought to have been the eldest. He was approximately 33 years old when he became an apostle and his great skill at administration made him one of the most respected of the apostles. His role was in the background where he provided support for the other apostles and their works. He was a humble man and is often overlooked because his skills at oratory may not have been as good as some of the other apostles.

13. According to [KJV] Acts 24:24, who was the wife of Felix, governor of Judea?

From Quiz Who's Your Wifey?

Answer: Drusilla

Drusilla, a Jewess, accompanied her husband Felix when Paul was called before the council. According to Josephus, she was one of the daughters of Herod Agrippa, and hated by her older sister Berenice who was jealous of her beauty. Drusilla perished along with her son in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

14. What was Judas's profession before becoming a disciple of Jesus?

From Quiz Good People Doing Right and Evil People Doing Sin

Answer: The Bible does not say

The Bible did not mention Judas's profession. When Judas was a disciple, he was in charge of the money. After realizing what he had done, Judas tried to give back the thirty pieces of silver he received for betraying Jesus, but the chief priests and elders wouldn't allow it, since it was blood money. The money was used to buy a field that was used to bury the dead bodies of foreigners. See Matthew 27 for the story. In the Bible, it was mentioned that Luke was a physician, Levi (also called Matthew) was a tax collector, and Peter, Andrew, James, and John were all fishermen. The jobs of the other disciples are not known.

15. Moses was chosen by God to lead the captive Israelites of of their slavery in Egypt. After forty years of leadership, God did not allow Moses to enter the Promised Land. Why?

From Quiz Biblical Dark Sides

Answer: Moses disobeyed God at Meribah.

When the Israelites arrived at Meribah, they demanded that Moses provide water for them. God told Moses to SPEAK to a rock and water would gush forth. However, Moses acted like the water was provided by his own power instead of coming from God and STRUCK the rock with his staff. This passage is found in Numbers 20.

16. Who was the first priest mentioned in the Bible?

From Quiz Biblical Priests

Answer: Melchizedek

Melchizedek is the first person explicitly called a priest. He is mentioned in Genesis 14:18 which reads, "Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was a priest of God Most High." Many theologians have debated about this mysterious priest of Yahweh.

17. Enoch was a prophet that walked with God. What does "Enoch" mean?

From Quiz Unusual Names in the Bible

Answer: "Dedicated"

Enoch was dedicated to God. He spent his life honoring God even when many people in his day were very wicked. He walked with God so closely, one day God took him. No one was ever able to find Enoch (Genesis 5:24).

18. If I tell you that this woman's son was the first ever murder victim, can you give me the correct question?

From Quiz What's the Question?

Answer: Who is Eve?

Eve was the first woman and therefore the first mother. When Cain slew Abel, she became the first mother to lose a child. She was also the first mother of a murderer. Genesis 4:1-8.

19. Whose wife was famously turned into a pillar of salt after she disobediently looked back while fleeing from the city of Sodom?

From Quiz Sorry, I Didn't Catch Your Name

Answer: Lot

This Bible account is found in Genesis chapter 19. Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other "cities of the plain" may have been located in the area that is now covered by the Dead Sea, one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. It is also a source of natural asphalt.

20. This dreamer could say that he fell asleep, lost a rib and gained a wife. Who would have thought it could be that easy?

From Quiz Dreaming Could Be Dangerous to Your Health

Answer: Adam

Genesis 2:20-22 tells of how God provided man with a "suitable helper" in this peculiar way.

21. Known for owning a coat of many colors, Joseph had the ability to see, with a sight given to him, the meaning of dreams. What did Pharaoh's dreams foretell?

From Quiz Eyes of the Soul

Answer: Abundance and famine

Joseph, the elder son of Jacob and Rachel, had the ability to interpret dreams. He dreamt that his brothers' sheaves of wheat bowed to his sheaf, so he understood the dream to mean that some day his brothers would bow to him. This came to pass later. His brothers were jealous of the favor their father showed him, and angered by his dreams. Finally, they sold him to slave traders, who sent him to Egypt. In Egypt, Joseph interpreted the dreams of the Pharaoh. Pharaoh dreamt that seven fat cows were eaten up by seven lean cows. His second dream was of seven good heads of grain swallowed up by seven shriveled heads of grain. None of Pharaoh's magicians could explain his dream to him. With the power given to his soul's eyes, Joseph saw the meaning of the dreams: Egypt would have seven years of abundance (the seven fat cows and seven full heads of grain) followed by seven years of famine. Pharaoh then made Joseph ruler of Egypt second only to Pharaoh himself. Joseph hoarded food through the years of abundance. When famine came, Egypt had food. His brothers then came and bowed down before him, wishing to buy grain. All that Joseph interpreted from dreams came to pass. Joseph's story ends the Book of Genesis.

22. After the death of her husband, Nabal, she married David. What was her name?

From Quiz A is for Ahithophel?

Answer: Abigail

When David and his men were hiding in the desert from the wrath of King Saul, they asked for help in the form of food and wine from Nabal. Nabal was a very rich man but the scriptures tell us he was also surly and evil. Nabal refused to help David and insulted him. Abigail, Nabal's wife, intervened. Unlike her husband, the Bible says that Abigail was an intelligent and beautiful woman. She gathered supplies for David and his men. About ten days later, Nabal died. When David heard this, he asked Abigail to become his wife and she accepted. The story of David, Abigail and Nabal can be read in 1 Samuel 25.

23. Which less-than-gracious man verbally and physically attacked King David when David was fleeing from Jerusalem when Absalom staged a coup?

From Quiz Not Center Stage

Answer: Shimei

This passage is found in 2 Samuel 16:5-13. Shimei came out to meet David cursing and throwing stones and dirt at the king. David's men wanted to kill the belligerent man, but David restrained them.

24. Two men from the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible, appeared with Jesus on Mount Transfiguration, as per Matthew 17, Mark 9 and Luke 9. Who were the two men from the Old Testament?

From Quiz Old Testament People in New Testament

Answer: Moses and Elijah

According to Scripture, Peter, James and John were with Jesus when Moses and Elijah appeared in their midst. Matthew 17:1-8, in the NKJV Bible, states: "Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, 'Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.' While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!' And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid. But Jesus came and touched them and said, 'Arise, and do not be afraid.' When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only."

25. This man was judge of Israel until the Israelites clamored for a king. Two men profited from him, being anointed king by him. Can you name him?

From Quiz Profit from the Prophets

Answer: Samuel

Samuel was Israel's judge, but the people cried for a king, wanting to be like other peoples, not understanding that God is their king, and being God's chosen people, were set apart from other nations. So, Samuel anointed Saul son of Kish as king over Israel. When Saul disobeyed God's will and did not completely exterminate the Amalekites, God sent Samuel to anoint David son of Jesse as the next king.

26. What was the five-letter name of the shepherd boy who slew Goliath with a stone?

From Quiz Five-Letter Names in the Bible

Answer: David

David, of course, is the correct answer. His slaying of Goliath is one of the best known stories in the Old Testament. Scripture states David chose five smooth stones from a stream for his slingshot, but it appears all he needed was one as 1 Samuel 17:49, in the NIV Bible states: "Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell face down on the ground." David would eventually go on to become king of Israel and usher in a golden age for the nation. He was replaced as king by his son Solomon, whose mother was Bathsheba.

27. Whose Biblical profile might read as follows? Gender: Male Looking for: multiple relationships Qualities: kingly, wise Info: looking for another wife to add to my 700 other wives.

Interestingly, in the teachings of Islam, Judaism and Christianity, Ishmael is considered the eldest son of Abram (Abraham). While Abraham was his father, his mother was Hagar, the handmaid of Abraham's wife, Sarah. Later after Sarah and Abraham had a son, Isaac, Sarah died and Abraham remarried. He had more children by this second wife, Keturah. Most, if not all of the Semitic peoples can trace their lineage back directly to Abraham.

From Quiz Bible People From A to Z

Answer: Adam

The word Adam is Hebrew in origin. It means "man." Adam was the proper name for the first man God created. The story of Adam's creation can be found from Genesis 1:27 to chapter 5. In addition, in 1 Corinthians 15:45 we read "And so it is written, the first man Adam became a living soul." (KJV) Abel was the second son of Adam and Eve. (Genesis 4:1-2) Aaron was the son of Amram and brother of Moses and Miriam. He was the spokesperson for Moses when they pleaded with the Egyptian king Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go. (Exodus 4:14; chapters 5 - 12) Abraham was the son of Terah and husband of Sarah. He was known for his obedience to God in that he was willing to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac, upon God's request. (Genesis 22:1-13)

From Quiz That's Saul Folks!

Answer: King Saul

"Then Samuel took a flask of olive oil and poured it on Saul's head and kissed him, saying, "Has not the Lord anointed you ruler over his inheritance?"" (1 Samuel 10 v. 1) Despite news of his conversion, many Christians remained afraid of the apostle Saul and it appears that Barnabas had to act as his endorser: "When he came to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he really was a disciple. But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus" (Acts 9 v. 26-27).
