Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Using the NKJV, Joseph's father-in-law had a hyphenated name, as per Genesis 41:45. Can you name his father-in-law?

Answer: Poti-Pherah

Poti-Pherah was Joseph's father-in-law. Genesis 41:45 states the Pharaoh gave Joseph a wife, Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. (In the KJV and the NIV, Poti-Phera's name is not hyphenated.) The same verse also states the Pharaoh gave Joseph a new hyphenated name: Zaphnath-Paaneah.

Joseph and Asenath were the parents of two boys, Manasseh and Ephraim.

(The question is left over from a quiz about hyphenated names in the Bible.)
2. Old Testament Scripture from the NKJV quotes God as saying, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Genesis

The verse is from Genesis 2:18, "And the LORD God said, 'It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.'" The verse is part of a passage telling of God creating the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 2:21-22 states God induced Adam into a deep sleep and then took one of his ribs and created the first woman, Eve.

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Alone in the Old and New Testaments'.)
3. Here's an interesting verse containing the word 'alone', using the NKJV: "Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone?" Although the verse smacks of something you would expect to find in Proverbs, it is actually found elsewhere in the Old Testament.

Answer: True

True. The verse in question is from Ecclesiastes 4:11 and is part of a passage telling of the value of a friend. Ecclesiastes, similar to Proverbs, is a book of wisdom. Tradition holds Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes as well as much of the Book of Proverbs.

To put the verse in context, here's how Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 reads in the NKJV: "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken."

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Alone in the Old and New Testaments'.)
4. According to John 6:15 in the NKJV, when Jesus "perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king", He departed to a location to be alone. Where did Jesus depart to be alone?

Answer: to the mountain

After feeding a multitude with five barley loaves and two small fish, the people were wildly excited about Jesus. In fact, John 6:15 in the NKJV states Jesus "perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king." As a result, He "departed again to the mountain by Himself alone." However, no name is given for the mountain.

The KJV and the NIV both state Jesus departed "to a mountain", rather than "to the mountain", possibly indicating the geographic feature did not have a name.

Shortly after this incident, Christ would miraculously calm a storm on the Sea of Galilee.

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Alone in the Old and New Testaments'.)
5. The following New Testament verse containing the word 'alone' is from the NKJV: "Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, for Your judgments have been manifested." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Revelation

The verse is from Revelation 15:4. Shortly after this verse, details are provided about seven angels pouring out seven bowls of wrath on the world.

Tradition holds John, one of the original Twelve Disciples, wrote Revelation but some modern day theologians dispute this belief.

6. 1 Thessalonians 4:11 contains the word 'quiet' and reads this way in the NKJV: "... aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you." Who is credited with writing 1 Thessalonians?

Answer: Paul

Paul is the correct answer. 1 Thessalonians is one of thirteen books he is credited with writing in the New Testament. The verse is part of a passage pertaining to a brotherly and orderly life.

To put the verse in perspective, here's how 1 Thessalonians 9-12 reads in the NKJV: "But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing."

1 and 2 Thessalonians were both addressed to members of the early church in the Greek city of Thessalonica, also known as Thessaloniki.

(The question is left over from a quiz taking a look at the words 'quiet', 'quieted' and 'quietness' in the Old and New Testaments.)
7. The following verse containing the word 'quieted' is from Psalm 131:2 in the NKJV: "Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me." Who is credited with writing Psalm 131?

Answer: David

Psalm 131 was written by David, the young shepherd boy who killed Goliath with a slingshot and ascended to become king of Israel. Out of one hundred and fifty Psalms, David is credited with writing more than seventy of them. Psalm 131 consists of only three verses, making it one of the shortest of the Psalms.

(The question is left over from a quiz taking a look at the words 'quiet', 'quieted' and 'quietness' in the Old and New Testaments.)
8. According to Genesis 1:5, on what day of creation did God create the evening and the morning?

Answer: first day

The evening and the morning were one of the first things created by God when He brought the world into existence. Genesis 1:3-5 explains things this way in the NKJV: "Then God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day."

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'It Happened In the Morning In the Bible'.)
9. What judge of Israel, according to Judges 6:38 in the NKJV, "rose early the next morning" and squeezed a bowlful of water out of fleece of wool he had left outside over night?

Answer: Gideon

Gideon is the correct answer. Judges 6:36-40 tells of Gideon being given a sign from God through some fleece of wool he left outside overnight. According to the passage, Gideon was highly doubtful he was capable of leading the Israelites into battle against the Midianites, this even though God had told him he was the chosen one.

So Gideon requested a sign from God proving he was indeed capable of leading the Israelites to victory. To this end, Gideon put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor with the view in the morning if there was dew on the fleece only and the ground was dry, it would mean he was indeed the one to lead Israel. Sure enough, things turned out exactly that way with Gideon wringing out a bowlful of water from the fleece the next morning.

However, Gideon still wasn't convinced. So he asked God for a second confirmation, stating that when he put the fleece out once again, it would be dry in the morning and the ground dew covered. Sure enough, that's how things turned out and Gideon finally agreed to lead the Israelites into battle against the Midianites.

Scripture goes on to tell of the Israelites scoring a spectacular military victory over their adversaries.

10. Acts 5:17-21 tells of the apostles being imprisoned only to have an angel set them free later in the night. According to the passage, what did the apostles do "early in the morning" after escaping prison?

Answer: went to the temple and preached

After being miraculously set free from prison, Acts 5:21 in the NKJV states the apostles "entered the temple early in the morning and taught." The passage goes on to state the apostles were arrested once again and put on trial. However, it was decided the authorities should "keep away from these men and let them alone."

The thinking was if the preaching of the apostles was false, it would all come to nothing. However, if the preaching was inspired by God, the authorities reckoned the apostles would be unstoppable.

See Acts 5:22-42 for further details.
