Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Abraham

Answer: Old Testament

Abraham's story is found in the book of Genesis.

In Genesis 17:1-6, (NLT) God promised Abraham he would make him a father of many nations and give him countless children if he served him faithfully. Abraham and his wife were too old to have children. However, Abraham trusted God.

God kept his promise to Abraham. Abraham and Sarah had a baby boy when Abraham was 100 years old. They named their son Isaac, which means "laughter".

"And Sarah declared, "God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby? Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!" (Genesis 21:6-7, NLT)
2. Moses

Answer: Old Testament

Moses' story is found in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers.

Moses was born during a time when Pharaoh had decided to kill all the newborn babies of the Israelites. His mother put him in a basket in the Nile to save his life. He was saved by the Pharaoh's daughter who found him and adopted him as her son.

In Exodus 3:9-10 (NLT), God appeared to Moses in the desert. He spoke to Moses in a burning bush and told him, "Look! I have heard the Israelites cry. I have seen how harshly the Egyptians have treated them. Now go, for I am sending you to Pharaoh. You must lead my people Israel out of Egypt."

Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and was their leader while they journeyed to God's promised land. He saw many miracles, wrote the ten commandments, and helped build the tabernacle.
3. Joseph, ruler of Egypt

Answer: Old Testament

Joseph's story is found in the book of Genesis.

According to Genesis 37:3-10(NLT), Joseph was hated by his brothers. Their father gave Joseph a coat of many colors and gave Joseph more attention than them. Joseph also shared with his family that he saw a dream of the sun, moon, and stars bowing down to him. It made his brothers so angry, they desired to kill him.

In Genesis 37:18-36 (NLT), when Joseph went to check on his brothers in the field, they threw him down a well. They saw a band of traders and sold him to them as a slave. Later they ripped up his coat and told their father that Joseph had been killed by a wild animal. Jacob wept and mourned, thinking Joseph was dead.

Joseph went through many hardships. His master's wife lied about Joseph and told her husband he hurt her. In Genesis 39:19-20 (NLT), Joseph was thrown into prison, but the Lord was with him and showed him his faithful love.

Later in Genesis 41:38-40(NLT), Joseph helped two prisoners by interpreting their dreams. When Pharaoh had troubling dreams, Pharaoh called upon Joseph to help. He was so pleased with Joseph's advice he made him ruler over all of Egypt.

Later Joseph's brothers come to Egypt for food. They were shocked to find Joseph alive. Joseph forgave them and brought his family to Egypt. He told his brothers, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people." (Genesis 50:20, NLT)
4. David

Answer: Old Testament

David's story is found in several books. He is mentioned in the book of 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, and Psalms.

King David started as a shepherd boy. He wrote many psalms, which were songs of praise to God, while he watched sheep.

When the prophet came to David's house to anoint a new king, God rejected David's brothers who looked acceptable in appearance. According to 1 Samuel 16:7 (NLT) God chose David because He saw David's heart.

David fought Goliath with a sling and five stones. In 1 Samuel 17:37, (NLT) he told the king he had confidence that God would help him defeat the giant because God had been with him as a shepherd. David won the victory.

As a king, David sought God for direction, even when he made mistakes.

In Acts 13:22 (NLT), David was noted for being "a man after God's own heart".
5. Ruth

Answer: Old Testament

Ruth's story is found in the book of Ruth.

After Ruth's and Naomi' husbands died, she left her home and followed her mother-in-law back to Israel. Naomi wanted Ruth to stay with her people, but Ruth refused. "Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God." (Ruth 1:16-17, NLT)

Many people rejected Ruth because she was from another country. Ruth worked in the fields to gather food for her and her mother-in-law. One of the owners of the fields, Boaz, was very kind to her. In Ruth 2:11-12 (NLT), Boaz told Ruth he had heard how she had left her family, her home, and her country to live in Israel. He had heard about her kindness towards Naomi and her decision to serve Israel's God.

In Ruth 2:20, (NLT) Ruth told Naomi of Boaz's kindness and she rejoiced. "The Lord bless him!" Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. "He has not stopped showing his kindness!" Naomi told Ruth, Boaz was a close relative and could help them regain everything their husbands had lost when they died.

Boaz bought back all the property that Naomi and Ruth's husbands had lost. Later Boaz and Ruth were married and had a son. Their son was the grandfather of King David.
6. John the Baptist

Answer: New Testament

John the Baptist was a prophet in the New Testament and a cousin to Jesus. Many people came out to see John preaching in the wilderness. He baptized many people and told them that the kingdom of heaven was near.

In Matthew 3:1-3 (NLT), John baptized people and prepared them for the Messiah. He told them they needed to change their ways to please God. John eventually landed in prison because he preached about things that people needed to change.

In Matthew 11:4-11 (NLT), John got discouraged in prison and sent his disciples to Jesus. He told them to ask Jesus if he was the Messiah. Jesus sent John's disciples back with this message, "Go back and tell John what you have seen. The blind see, the lame walk, those with leprosy are healed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor."

After John's disciples were gone, Jesus turned to the crowd and told them, "I tell you the truth, of all who have ever lived, none is greater than John the Baptist. Yet even the least person in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he is!" (Matthew 11:11, NLT)
7. Jesus

Answer: New Testament

The life of Jesus can be found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

In Luke 4: 18-19 (NLT), when Jesus started his ministry, he read Isaiah 61:1 in his hometown and told them, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has sent me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to set the captives free, open blind eyes, and tell people of the year of the Lord."

Jesus told people that Isaiah's scripture had been fulfilled before their very eyes. While he was alive, he performed miracles, did healings, taught scripture, and prepared people for the kingdom of heaven.

Many people loved Jesus for the miracles and healings, but some hated Jesus for telling them they were doing evil things. They took Jesus to the Romans and had him crucified on a cross.

Later Jesus rose from the grave. He appeared to his disciples three days after he was crucified. His disciples later told the temple priests and Pharisees, "You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. And we are witnesses of this fact!" (Acts 3:15, NLT)

John wrote in his gospel, "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16, NLT)
8. Mary Magdalene

Answer: New Testament

Mary Magdalene was a close follower of Jesus. The story of her life can be found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

According to Matthew 25 (NLT), Mary Magdalene was there when Jesus was crucified. She had been apart of many women who had cared for Jesus and his disciples by helping them with their needs. They stood nearby and wept when Jesus was on the cross.

According to John 20 (NLT), Mary Magdalene was an important witness to the empty tomb when Jesus rose from the grave.

On the Sunday morning after Jesus died, Mary went to the tomb and found it empty. She was greeted by two angels.

Mary was standing outside the tomb crying and the angels asked her why. She told them someone had taken away Jesus and she didn't know where they had put his body.

She heard another voice that asked her, "Why are you crying?"

Mary thought it was the gardener and asked the man to show her where Jesus was. The many spoke to her again and called her name. "Mary!"

Mary recognized it was Jesus, alive!
9. Peter

Answer: New Testament

Peter can be found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. He is also mentioned in the book of Acts, which details the events of the apostles and the first church. He also wrote two books of the New Testament, 1 Peter and 2 Peter, which were letters encouraging churches.

Peter was a fisherman when he first met Jesus with his brother Andrew.

In Matthew 4:18-20, (NLT) Jesus was walking along the shore of Galilee when he saw two brothers, Andrew and Peter, who were fisherman. He told them "Come and follow me and I will make you fishers of men. The two men left their nets and followed Jesus. They became apart of Jesus' disciples.

Peter became a close disciple of Jesus. With Jesus, he walked on water during a storm, helped feed five thousand people at a time with two loaves and five fish, saw Jesus heal his mother-in-law, and helped Jesus with miracles.

After Jesus was gone, he became one of the leading apostles, or church leaders, in Jerusalem. He preached the day of Pentecost and was known for acts of healing. He wrote letters encouraging churches which became the epistles of 1 and 2 Peter. Later he gave his life for Christ on a cross in Rome.
10. Paul

Answer: New Testament

Paul was an apostle in the New Testament. Paul loved sharing his testimony on how God had saved him with many countries and people. He wrote many letters known as "epistles" to the churches, encouraging them to have faith in difficult times.

Paul wrote to the Roman church in Romans 8:28, "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." (NLT)

In 1 Timothy 4:7-8, (NLT) Paul encouraged his follower Timothy when he gave his life for Christ. Paul told Timothy, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. Now I have a crown, that the Lord will give to me. It is not just for me but for all who are faithful."
