Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The following verse, containing the word 'rest', is from Psalm 55:6 in the NKJV: "So I said, 'Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.'" Who is credited with writing Psalm 55?

Answer: David

David is the author of Psalm 55 as well as more than seventy other Psalms found in the book. The verse is part of a passage in which David pours his heart out to God during a severe trial he was enduring.

Many people believe the Psalm is telling prophetically of the experience of Jesus Christ.

To put the verse in context, here's how Psalm 55:4-7 appears in the NKJV: "My heart is severely pained within me and the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me and horror has overwhelmed me. So I said, 'Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.
Indeed, I would wander far off and remain in the wilderness.'"

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Taking a 'Rest' in the Old and New Testaments'.)
2. The following verse, containing the word 'rest', is from Psalm 132:14 in the NKJV: "This is My resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it." Using Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV, the Book of Psalms contains one hundred and fifty Psalms making it the Bible book with most chapters.

Answer: True

True. The Book of Psalms contains one hundred and fifty Psalms, using Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV. As a result, it has more chapters than any other book in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible. Many of the Psalms were written by David.

To put Psalm 132:14 in context, here's how it reads with Verses 13 and 15: "For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place: 'This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread.'"

3. Here's part of a verse from a book in the Minor Prophet section, using the NKJV: "Behold, the days shall come upon you when He will take you away with fishhooks, and your posterity with fishhooks." What is the name of the Bible book that contains this verse?

Answer: Amos

The verse is found in Amos 4:2. Out of the four possible answers, Amos is only one which is a book in the Minor Prophet section of the Old Testament. The verse in question pertains to Amos telling the Israelites of the horrific consequences they face because they had turned their backs on God.

According to Amos 1:1, Amos was a sheepbreeder from Tekoa who prophesied in the days of King Uzziah of Judah and King Joash of Israel.

4. The following verse, containing the word 'fish', is from Hosea 4:3 in the NKJV: "Therefore the land will mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away With the beasts of the field and the birds of the air; even the fish of the sea will be taken away." Who was Hosea?

Answer: The son of Beeri and a prophet of God

Hosea was the son of Beeri and a prophet of God as well as the author of the Old Testament book that bears his name. According to Hosea 1:1, Hosea prophesied during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and Jeroboam, king of Israel. Hosea 4:3 is part of a passage telling of God's charge against Israel because of its idolatry.

5. In two different Gospels, Jesus is quoted as saying, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." In what two Gospels do you find such a statement?

Answer: Matthew and Mark

The statement by Jesus regarding "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men", is found in Matthew 4:19 and Mark 1:17.

For the record, using the NKJV, Matthew 4:19 quotes Jesus as saying, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." Mark 1:17 is almost identical but has the word 'become' part of the quote. In other words, Mark 1:17 quotes Jesus as saying, "Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men."

Luke and John do not contain information about Jesus making the "fishers of men" statement.

6. Exodus 32:19 in the NKJV tells of a man's anger becoming "hot" when he saw the Israelites dancing around a gold calf. Who was the man whose anger had become hot?

Answer: Moses

According to Exodus 32:19 in the NKJV, Moses' anger became "hot" when he descended from Mount Sinai and saw the Israelites dancing around a gold calf his brother Aaron had created. Scripture states Moses had just came down from the mountain after receiving from God the Ten Commandments etched on two tablets of stone. According to Verse 19, Moses became so angry when he saw what the Israelites had done in his absence that he "cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain."

7. The following verse, containing the word 'cold', is from the NKJV: "Like the cold of snow in time of harvest Is a faithful messenger to those who send him, for he refreshes the soul of his masters." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Proverbs

The verse is from Proverbs 25:13 and part of a passage featuring wise sayings of Solomon. According to Proverbs 25:1 the proverbs of Solomon were copied by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah. Although Solomon is credited with writing most of the Book of Proverbs, some of the content was also written by Agur and Lemuel.

8. John 18:18 in the NKJV states that, after the arrest of Jesus, He was taken to the high priest while "the servants and officers made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves". According to the verse, one of the original Twelve Disciples also stood by the fire warming himself. What was the disciple's name?

Answer: Peter

Peter is the correct answer. John 18:12-26 tells of Peter being in the courtyard of the high priest after Jesus was taken inside for questioning. Verse 18 in the NKJV states it was cold so a fire was made in the courtyard and Peter "stood with them and warmed himself."

The passage tells of Peter denying even knowing Christ with a rooster crowing after his third denial, just as Jesus had predicted.
