Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The letter 'A'. One of the many miracles recorded in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible, involves three Jewish men who were thrown into a fiery furnace by King Nebuchadnezzar and survived. According to Daniel 3, two of the men were Shadrach and Meshach. What was the name of the third man, with spelling as per the NKJV?

Answer: Abed-Nego

Abed-Nego is the correct answer. (In the KJV and the NIV Bible, he is simply known as Abednego with no hyphen in his name.)

Nebuchadnezzar was burning with uncontrollable rage after he learned Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego had refused to bow down and worship an image of gold he had made that measured 90 feet high and 9 feet wide, according to the third chapter of Daniel. So he ordered the three Jewish men to be bound and thrown into a fiery furnace. According to Scripture the furnace was so hot the flames killed the soldiers who were attempting to take Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego to their doom. However, the trio was not harmed by the immense heat and Nebuchadnezzar, after seeing a fourth men in the furnace who looked like "the Son of God", ordered their release. The story ends with the king singing the praises of "the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!" The three men, according to Scripture, were subsequently promoted by the king.
2. The letter 'B'. What was the name of the blind beggar who miraculously regained his sight after encountering Jesus at Jericho? (Mark 10:46)

Answer: Bartimaeus

Bartimaeus was a helpless blind beggar who miraculously regained his sight after he had an encounter with Jesus. His story appears in the 10th chapter of the Gospel of Mark. It's a heartwarming story and has always been one of my favorites. In fact, the first quiz I did for FunTrivia was about blind Bartimaeus. According to Scripture, Bartimaeus was the son of Timaeus but no other details are given about his family.
3. The letter 'C'. According to John 2:1-11, the first miracle Jesus performed involved turning water into wine at a wedding feast. What was the name of the community in which the miracle was performed?

Answer: Cana

The correct answer is Cana. Verses 7 and 8 in the second chapter of John tell of Jesus instructing people to fill a number of jars with water and then to draw some out and give a sample to the master of the banquet. After tasting the liquid, the master expresses surprise at how fine the wine is.

In verse 10, the master compliments the bridegroom, stating "everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now." According to the Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible, Cana was west of the Sea of Galilee and about 10 miles north of Nazareth.
4. The letter 'D'. Scripture tells of Peter miraculously raising a woman called Tabitha from the dead. According to Acts 9:36-43, the woman had a second name that starts with the letter 'D'. What was it?

Answer: Dorcas

Tabitha was also known as Dorcas. According to Acts 9:36-42, she was miraculously raised from the dead by Peter, one of the original Twelve Disciples. She lived in Joppa. The community is now known as Jaffa and is part of Tel Aviv, on the Mediterranean Sea. Scripture states Dorcas/Tabitha was "always doing good and helping the poor." In different places in the Bible, helping the poor is pointed out as a strong virtue.

In Acts 10:2, for example, Cornelius, a Roman centurion who was also a Christian believer, is described as "giving generously" to those in need.
5. The letter 'E'. According to Scripture, a prophet of God miraculously scored a decisive victory over 450 prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. The challenge was to see who could call upon a higher power to ignite a sacrificial offering with Scripture stating it was no contest with the prophet of God coming out on top. Who was this prophet of God? (1 Kings 18)

Answer: Elijah

Elijah is the correct answer. According to 1 Kings 18, Elijah and the prophets of Baal had a showdown to see who could call upon a higher power to ignite a sacrificial offering on Mount Carmel. The 450 prophets called on Baal and Elijah called on the LORD with Elijah being the clear winner, according to Scripture.

Elijah is well known for many things, but perhaps the best known story involving him is his duel with the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel.
6. The letter 'F'. In this case the letter 'F' stands for 'Found Floating'. 2 Kings 6:1-7 tells of the prophet Elisha miraculously causing a metallic item to float on the Jordan River. What was the item that was unexpectedly found floating?

Answer: Axhead

The story of the floating axhead appears in 2 Kings 6:1-7. In a nutshell, Elisha and a group of prophets were cutting trees along the Jordan River to build a new place to live when suddenly an axhead fell into the water. The prophet who lost the axhead was apparently filled with distress as it was borrowed. When Elisha asked the man where the axhead fell, the spot was pointed out to him. 2 Kings, 6-7, in the NIV Bible, states: "Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. 'Lift it out,' he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it."
7. The letter 'G'. According to Scripture, Jesus calmed storms on two different occasions on a body of water with His disciples serving as witnesses of the miracles. The body of water was called the Sea of ___________.

Answer: Galilee

On two different occasions Jesus calmed storms on the Sea of Galilee. Details of the first miracle can be found in Matthew 8, Mark 4 and Luke 8. Details of the second miracle can be found in Matthew 14 and Mark 6. In the first incident, Christ was sleeping in the back of a boat rowed by the disciples when He calmed the storm.

In the second incident, the disciples encountered Christ walking on the water of the Sea of Galilee during a storm. In both cases He rebuked the waves and all was placid, Scripture states.
8. The letter 'H'. Scripture tells of a dying king having fifteen extra years miraculously added to his life after he poured his heart out to the LORD. What was the king's name, as per 2 Kings 20:1?

Answer: Hezekiah

Hezekiah is the correct answer. He was the 14th king of Israel, according to Wikipedia. The prophet Isaiah told Hezekiah to get his house in order "because you are going to die, you will not recover," as per 2 Kings 20:1. Hezekiah then poured out his heart to the LORD immediately after Isaiah left and Scripture reports the prophet promptly received a message from the LORD. 2 Kings 20:4-5, in the NIV Bible, states in part: "...the word of the LORD came to him: 'Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, 'This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.'" Scripture goes on to report 15 more years were added to Hezekiah's life.
9. The letter 'I'. The letter, in this case, is for 'infirmity'. Luke 13:10-17 contains heartwarming details of a woman who had suffered from a severe infirmity only to be miraculously healed by Jesus. According to Scripture, her back was severely bent and she could not straighten herself up. Her life of misery came to an end, however, when Jesus put His hands on her. After Jesus put His hands on her, how long did it take for the woman to be healed of her infirmity?

Answer: Immediately

The correct answer is 'immediately'. Luke 13:10-13, in the NKJV, explains what happened: "Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, 'Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.' And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God."

Scripture goes on to state the people were indignant Jesus healed the woman on the Sabbath.

Instead of using the word 'infirmity', the NIV uses the word 'crippled'.
10. The letter 'J'. According to Scripture Jesus performed dozens of miracles, however, there is no way of determining the exact number, regardless of how carefully and thoroughly one reads the New Testament.

Answer: True

While there are more than 35 miracles of Jesus clearly documented in Scripture, there are passages indicating numerous other miracles were performed. For example, Mark 6:53-56, tells of a large number of people touching Jesus and being made well.

The passage comes on the heels of Jesus walking on the Sea of Galilee and calming a storm for the terrified disciples. Verses 53-56, in the NKJV, state: "When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well." In other words, there could've been hundreds of people miraculously healed in these three verses alone.

In other words, there is no way of knowing the exact number of miracles Jesus performed by reading Scripture.

As John 21:25 states: "And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen."
11. The letter 'K'. In this case, the letter 'K' is for 'kill' and for 'keeper,' as in keeper of the prison. Acts 16:27 tells of a keeper of the prison in Philippi preparing to kill himself after a miraculous event transpired. What was the miraculous event?

Answer: An earthquake opened the prison doors and set the prisoners free of their chains.

The correct answer is 'an earthquake opened the prison doors and set the prisoners free of their chains'.

Paul and Silas both experienced the miracle, as per Acts 16:16-40. According to Scripture, they were imprisoned in Philippi when a "violent" earthquake shook the prison and "at once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone's chains came loose." The chapter goes on to tell of Paul and Silas using the occasion to convert the jailer, and his household, to Christianity.

It should be noted, however, Paul and Silas did not flee from their cell, as did the other prisoners. They opted to stay behind and it appears their obedience impressed the jailer so much he opted to become a Christian.

Here's how the events unfold in Acts 16:27-31 in the NKJV Bible: "And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, 'Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.' Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?' So they said, 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.' Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household."

The passage goes on to tell of Paul and Silas being officially released from prison by the authorities.
12. The letter 'L'. According to Scripture, Jesus raised a man from the dead at Bethany even though the fellow had been dead for four days and the body was starting to stink. What was the man's name? (John 11)

Answer: Lazarus

Yes, Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha, is the correct answer. The report of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead at Bethany is perhaps Christ's most famous miracle. Scripture states the man had been dead for four days and in John 11:39, Martha was not keen about the stone being rolled away from Lazarus' tomb because of concern about the "stench" from the body.

In other words, the funeral was over a long time ago and Lazarus was as dead as they come. According to Wikipedia, rigor mortis lasts for about 72 hours, or three days.

In this case, the rigor mortis was over and now the body was starting to decay in the hot Mediterranean sun.
13. The letter 'M'. According to Scripture, a young girl gave birth to Jesus while still a virgin. What was her name in English?

Answer: Mary

Details about Mary giving birth to Jesus while still a virgin are found in Matthew 1 as well as Luke 1 and 2. Many Christian theologians believe Mary's miraculous pregnancy and the birth of Christ was foretold in Isaiah 7:14, which in the NKJV, states: "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel." Notes in the NKJV Study Bible state Immanuel literally means 'God With Us'.
14. The letter 'N'. According to 2 Kings 5, the prophet Elisha miraculously cured a Syrian army commander of leprosy. What was the man's name?

Answer: Naaman

The story of Naaman is found in the fifth chapter of 2 Kings. After coming down with leprosy, Naaman followed the advice of a Jewish slave girl who served his wife. In 2 Kings 5:23, she told him to see the prophet Elisha. The end result is this: Elisha the prophet told Naaman to bathe himself seven times in the Jordan River. Afterward, he was miraculously cleansed of the dread disease. 2 Kings 5:15, in the NKJV Bible, states: "And he [Naaman] returned to the man of God, he and all his aides, and came and stood before him; and he said, 'Indeed, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, except in Israel; now therefore, please take a gift from your servant."

Elisha, however, refused to accept any gift.
15. The letter 'O'. 'Outraged' perhaps best describes the Pharisees after they saw Jesus miraculously heal a man with a withered hand, as per Luke 6:6-11. Why were the Pharisees outraged?

Answer: Because Jesus healed the man on the Sabbath.

According to Scripture, the Pharisees were upset with Jesus because He had the audacity to cure the man on the Sabbath. (Couldn't He keep the day holy and pretend He didn't see the man and his withered hand?)

The healing of the man is told in Luke 6:6-11 with the verses, in the NKJV, stating: "Now it happened on another Sabbath, also, that He entered the synagogue and taught. And a man was there whose right hand was withered. So the scribes and Pharisees watched Him closely, whether He would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against Him. But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, 'Arise and stand here.' And he arose and stood. Then Jesus said to them, 'I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy?' And when He had looked around at them all, He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand.' And he did so, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. But they were filled with rage, and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus."
16. The letter 'P'. Acts 3:6 tells of one of the original Twelve Disciples miraculously healing a man who had been paralyzed from birth, by stating, "silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk." What's the disciple's name?

Answer: Peter

Acts 3:1-2 tells of Peter and John going to the temple at the time of prayer -- three in the afternoon -- when they saw a crippled man being carried to the temple gate to beg for money.

The crippled beggar had only one thought on his mind when he saw Peter and John: he wanted money. Acts 3:3 in the NKJV Bible states the man asked the two disciples for money and they responded by looking "fixing" their eyes on him and asked the man to look at them. Verse five goes on to state: "So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them." The beggar, however, would receive something much more valuable than money. He would soon be able to walk for the first time in his life.

In Acts 3:6, Peter declared to the crippled beggar "silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."

After Peter made his statement to the man, a miracle happened. Act 3:7-8 describes things this way: "And he [Peter] took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them -- walking, leaping, and praising God."

The man was obviously ecstatic. It must have been a wonderful sight to behold.
17. The letter 'Q'. Scripture tells of the LORD providing manna to the Israelites as they wandered in the desert for forty years after their exodus out of Egypt. In addition to manna, the LORD provided a certain type of bird for the Israelites to eat. Can you name the bird that was miraculously provided by the LORD? (Numbers 11:31-32)

Answer: quail

The correct answer is quail. Numbers 11:31-32, in the NKJV, states: "Now a wind went out from the LORD, and it brought quail from the sea and left them fluttering near the camp, about a day's journey on this side and about a day's journey on the other side, all around the camp, and about two cubits above the surface of the ground. And the people stayed up all that day, all night, and all the next day, and gathered the quail (he who gathered least gathered ten homers); and they spread them out for themselves all around the camp."

However, the next two verses go on to explain the wrath of the LORD was aroused against the Israelites while "the meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed." As a result, the people were struck with a "very great plague."

Notes in the NKJV Study Bible have this interesting information about quail: "In Israel, the quail is a migrating bird that arrives in droves along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. With their strong flying muscles, these birds can fly rapidly for a short time. When migrating, however, they stretch their wings and allow the wind to bear them along. Sometimes they reach land so exhausted after their long flight that they can be caught by hand."

The notes go on to state: "The Hebrew people probably ate dried, salted quail when they were enslaved by the Egyptians. When they longed for meat in the Wilderness of the Sinai, God promised them He would provide enough meat for a month. Then He directed thousands of quail to their camp, where the birds dropped in exhaustion."
18. The letter 'R'. What was the name of the woman who was married to Jacob and miraculously gave birth to Joseph after being unable to conceive up to that point in her life? (Genesis 20)

Answer: Rachel

Rachel was highly distraught over the fact she was unable to conceive while her sister Leah, who was also married to her husband Jacob, bore a number of children. There's even a suggestion in Scripture that she was so deeply depressed by the situation she contemplated suicide. Genesis 30:1, in the NKJV Bible, states: "Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, 'Give me children, or else I die!'"

Later, Rachel would be able to conceive due to divine intervention. Genesis 20:22-24, in the NKJV, states: "Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb. And she conceived and bore a son, and said, 'God has taken away my reproach.' So she called his name Joseph, and said, 'The Lord shall add to me another son.'"

Sure enough, Rachel would give birth to a second son, Benjamin. However, she died giving birth to her second child, as per Genesis 35:18. In other words, her statement 'give me children, or else I die' became prophetic.
19. The letter 'S'. S is for the community of Shunem. 2 Kings 4:32-35 tells of Elisha, a prophet of God, performing a heart-warming miracle at Shunem. What was the miracle?

Answer: He raised a woman's son from the dead.

The correct answer is Elisha raised a woman's son from the dead. 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."

According to Scripture the miracle took place in Shunem. The Web site Christiananswers.net reports Shunem "was a little village in the tribe of Issachar, to the north of Jezreel and south of Mount Gilboa."

Meanwhile, 1 Kings 17:7-24 tells of Elijah raising a widow's son from the dead at Zarephath in the region of Sidon. Verses 21-24 state: "And he stretched himself out on the child three times, and cried out to the Lord and said, 'O Lord my God, I pray, let this child's soul come back to him.' Then the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came back to him, and he revived. And Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. And Elijah said, 'See, your son lives!' Then the woman said to Elijah, 'Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is the truth.'"
20. The letter 'T'. What was the name of the community in which Paul miraculously raised sleepy Eutychus from the dead after he fell out of a third-storey window and died? (Acts 20:7-12)

Answer: Troas

Eutychus is the young man who fell asleep in a third-storey window while the apostle Paul preached on and on in Troas. According to Acts 20:7-12, Eutychus fell out of the window and plunged to his death only to be raised from the dead by Paul.

After breaking bread and eating, Paul proceeded to preach on until day break, according to verse eleven.

Troas was in Asia Minor, which is present day Turkey. The community is now in ruins and is referred to as Eski Stamboul, according to the Web site Christiananswers.net.
21. The letter 'U'. According to Matthew 13:58, Jesus declined to perform "mighty works" in the area surrounding Nazareth, His home village, due to a particular characteristic shown by the people. According to the KJV and the NKJV, what was the characteristic that prompted Jesus to apparently move on and perform miracles in other areas of Israel?

Answer: Unbelief

Unbelief is the correct answer. (The NIV uses the term 'lack of faith'.)

Matthew 13:53-58 in the NKJV states: "Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, 'Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?' So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.' Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief."
22. The letter 'V'. V is for viper. Acts 28:2-6 tells of a man being bit by a viper after surviving a shipwreck; miraculously, he did not suffer any ill affects from the bite. What was the man's name?

Answer: Paul

Paul is the correct answer. He was bitten by a viper after he survived a shipwreck and ended up on the Mediterranean island of Malta.

According to Acts 28:2-6, once the survivors were ashore the islanders built a fire and welcomed Paul's group. Verse three states Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand.

Scripture states the snake bite had no impact on Paul, much to the amazement of the islanders. Verses 4-6 in the NIV Bible, state: "When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, 'This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live.' But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead, but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god."
23. The letter 'W'. Walls surrounding Jericho miraculously came tumbling down after the Israelites marched around the Canaanite community a number of times. According to Joshua 6:16, how many times did the Israelites march around the community on the day the walls of Jericho collapsed?

Answer: Seven

The walls of Jericho came tumbling down after the Israelites marched around the city the seventh time, according to Joshua 6:16.

Joshua 6:20-21 tells what happened after the Israelites marched around the city seven times: "So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword."
24. The letters 'X' and 'Y'. 'Y' is for young. Scripture tells of Jesus raising a young girl, the daughter of Jairus, from the dead, as per Mark 5:21-43. How old was the girl Jesus raised from the dead?

Answer: 12 years

Jairus' daughter was twelve years old, according to Mark 5:42. As morbid as it sounds, there was laughter after the little girl's death. In the accounts in Mark as well as Luke 8:49-56, it tells of people weeping for the dead girl outside her home. However, when Jesus appeared and stated the girl was not dead but was simply sleeping, the 'mourners' laughed at him. In other words, they saw Jesus as someone who was demented with no concept of reality. A few moments later, however, their laughter turned to total amazement when Christ raised the girl from the dead.

According to Mark 5:41 in the NKJV, Jesus said, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." And she did just that! The account of Jairus' daughter being raised from the dead is one of the most popular in the New Testament.
25. The letter 'Z'. Scripture tells of an elderly man losing his voice because of his refusal to believe reports by an angel that his wife Elizabeth would give birth to a son. Then, miraculously, the man regained his voice after his son was born. What was the man's name? (Hint: The son grew up to become known as John the Baptist.)

Answer: Zacharias

Zacharias, also known as Zechariah in the NIV Bible, is the correct answer. Scripture states Zecharias was a priest who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah and his wife was also a descendant of Aaron, as per Luke 1:5. Luke 1:11-25 tells of the angel Gabriel appearing before Zecharias and telling him of the upcoming birth of their son, who would become John the Baptist.

When Zecharias doubted Gabriel's claims, he was rendered speechless as per Luke 1:20. After the baby was born, Zechariah wrote on a tablet that the infant was to be called John and, according to verse 64, "immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue was loosed, and he spoke, praising God."
