Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. According to Genesis 29:17, what woman had "delicate eyes" and was "unloved"?

Answer: Leah

Leah and her younger sister Rachel were both the wives of Jacob. However, Scripture makes it clear Rachel was the apple of Jacob's eyes and Leah was largely unloved.

Genesis 29:17, in the NKJV, states, "Leah's eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance." (The NIV says Leah had "weak eyes" while the KJV says she was "tender eyed."

Genesis 29:31 states Leah was "unloved" and as a result the LORD "opened her womb" while Rachel was barren.
2. What king of Judah had his eyes put out by the conquering Babylonian army? (Jeremiah 39:7)

Answer: Zedekiah

Zedekiah was the last king of Judah and when Judah was conquered by the Babylonian army, he had his eyes put out. The 39th chapter of Jeremiah tells of Zedekiah's capture by the Babylonian army with Verse 7 telling of his eyes being put out and bound with bronze shackles before taken to Babylon. According to 2 Kings 24:19-20 and Jeremiah 52:2-3, Zedekiah did "evil in the sight of the LORD".

He was a son of Josiah, and his mother's name was Hamutal.
3. According to Genesis 6:8, who found grace in the eyes of the LORD during a time of "great wickedness"?

Answer: Noah

Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD while civilization had generally deteriorated into lawlessness. Details can be found in Genesis 6:5-8.

Scripture goes on to tell of the world being engulfed in a massive flood with Noah and his wife and their three sons and their wives taking refuge in a massive ark and being the only people saved.
4. After Hagar became a mother, what woman became "despised in her eyes"? (Genesis 16:4-5)

Answer: Sarah

In this case, Sarah is the correct answer. However, the question could be easily reworked along the lines of "who became despised in Sarah's eyes after her handmaiden gave birth?"

Both women, it seemed, were despised in each other's eyes. The problems all started when Sarah, known as Sarai at the time, gave permission to her husband Abraham, also known as Abram, to sleep with Hagar to produce offspring. Scripture states Sarah was unable to conceive at the time.

Genesis 16:5 tells of Sarai complaining that she had become despised in the eyes of Hagar. Scripture goes on to tell of Abraham opting to abandon Hagar and her son Ishmael.
5. Who was old and bedridden, and his eyes "were so dim he could not see" so that he ended up blessing the wrong son? (Genesis 27:1)

Answer: Isaac

Isaac was deceived and ended up blessing his slightly younger twin son Jacob over Esau. According to Scripture, Jacob disguised himself as Esau with the help of his mother Rebekah to pull off the ruse on Isaac who was elderly and frail and his eyes "were so dim that he could not see." The ruse is recounted in Genesis 27:1-40.

Scripture states Rebekah favored Jacob while Isaac favored Esau and this is where things started to fall apart.
6. Who according to Scripture cast longing eyes on Joseph? (Genesis 39:7)

Answer: Potiphar's wife

Potiphar's unnamed wife is the correct answer. According to Genesis 39:7 in the NKJV, she cast "longing eyes" on Joseph and attempted to seduce him. However, Scripture states Joseph fled after the woman attempted to lure him into bed with her, and he left behind his cloak. Shortly afterward, the woman produced Joseph's clothing to Potiphar, citing it as proof Joseph had attempted to make sport of her. Joseph would end up being tossed in prison as a result.
7. According to Genesis 49:8-12, Jacob said one of his sons had eyes "darker than wine" and teeth "whiter than milk". Who was the son?

Answer: Judah

In Genesis 49:12, Jacob states Judah's "eyes are darker than wine,
And his teeth whiter than milk." He made the statement in his last words to his twelve sons. In his remarks about Judah, Jacob also likened him to a lion, as per Genesis 49:9. The reference to Judah being a lion is seen by many Christians as prophecy about the birth of Jesus Christ. Revelation 5:5, for example, refers to Christ as "the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David".
8. After seeing the baby Jesus, an elderly man in the Gospel of Luke is quoted as saying his eyes had seen God's salvation. Who made the statement?

Answer: Simeon

Simeon was so grateful when he saw the baby Jesus he proclaimed He was God's salvation for mankind and that he was now ready to die. Details can be found in Luke 2:25-32.

Simeon is mentioned in only the Gospel of Luke and no where else in the Bible. There is a second Simeon in the New Testament. According to Acts 13:1, a member of the early church in Antioch was called Simeon and he was a teacher and a prophet.
9. Who was temporarily blind, and had scales fall from his eyes when he regained his sight?

Answer: Paul

Paul, also known as Saul, is the correct answer. Ananias helped Paul regain his sight after his dramatic encounter with Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus. The encounter left Paul shaken and blind. According to Scripture, Ananias received divine instructions to go to a house owned by Judas on Straight Street where he met up with Paul. Acts 9:17-18, in the NKJV, tells of Ananias helping Paul regain his sight.

The conversion of Paul was a major turning point for Christianity. He was a vehement opponent of the early church and according to Acts 7:58, oversaw the execution of Stephen, the first reported Christian martyr. Things changed dramatically, however, when according to Acts 9:1-10, Paul encountered a blinding light while on his way to Damascus and he heard the voice of Jesus Christ. To the amazement of early church members as well as those who relentlessly persecuted them, Paul would become a Christian and a major force in preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles.
10. Scripture tells of an unnamed blind man having clay put on his eyes, and he was able to see. Who put the clay on the man's eyes? (John 9:11)

Answer: Jesus

According to Scripture, Jesus put clay on an unnamed blind man's eyes and then instructed him to wash in the Pool of Siloam. After he did this, the blind man was miraculously able to see. Details can be found in John 9:1-7.

Scripture goes on to tell of the Pharisees having a confrontation with the previously blind man and then excommunicating him.
