Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The following quote, containing the word 'bad', is from Matthew 7:18 in the NKJV: "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit." Who made this statement?

Answer: Jesus

The passage is part of Christ's famous Sermon on the Mount.

Answer: Jeremiah

The verse in question is from Jeremiah 24:2. Chapter 24 of Jeremiah is about a vision in which Jeremiah saw two baskets of figs, one good and one bad. In a nutshell, the good figs and the bad figs represent the good and the bad people of Israel.

Jeremiah, the son of Hilkiah, prophesied in Judah during the reigns of Josiah, Jehoiakim and Zedekiah.

3. "Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel," is a verse from the NKJV. In what book do you find this witty verse?

Answer: Proverbs

The verse in question is from Proverbs 20:17. Using the NKJV, The words 'gain' and 'gained' appear nine times in Proverbs. That's more than any other book in the Old and New Testaments. The only book that comes close is the Gospel of Matthew with the words 'gain' and 'gained' appearing five times.

4. "For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he may gain much, if God takes away his life?," is a question asked by a long-suffering man in the Old Testament, using the NKJV. Who asked such a question?

Answer: Job

The question "what is the hope of hypocrite," was asked by Job in Job 27:8. Job posed the rhetorical question while maintaining his integrity during a lengthy discussion with three of his friends.

Job's three friends visited him after he had been beset with a series of calamities. The friends were Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar. A fourth friend, Elihu arrived later.

5. The following statement, containing the word 'gain', is from the NKJV: "These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage." In what New Testament book do you find this verse?

Answer: Jude

The verse is from Jude 1:16. The book of Jude consists of only one chapter, using Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV. Much of the chapter warns about the dangers of apostates and urges believers to maintain a close walk with God.

6. The following verse containing the word 'bore' is from the NKJV: "Then I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the LORD said to me, 'Call his name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz'." What writer of an Old Testament book that bears his name was instructed by God to call his son Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz?

Answer: Isaiah

The verse is from Isaiah 8:3 and is part of a passage telling of a prophesy of the Asyrians invading the land. Incidentally, Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz is the longest name found in the Old and New Testaments. According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, the translation of Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz is Speed the Spoil, Hasten the Booty.

Out of the four possible answers, Isaiah is the only one who is an author of an Old Testament book that bears his name.

7. According to Mark 14:56 in the NKJV, "many bore false witness ... but their testimonies did not agree." Who did the people bear false witness against?

Answer: Jesus

Jesus is the correct answer. Mark 14:53-65 tells of Jesus appearing before the Sanhedrin after His arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. According to Verse 56 in the NKJV, "...many bore false witness against Him, but their testimonies did not agree." Verse 57 also states "some rose up and bore false witness against Him" but once again their testimonies did not agree.

It made no difference to the Pharisees, however. They wanted Jesus dead. A short while later He would be crucified along with two common thieves. All four Gospels, however, tell of Christ miraculously rising from the dead three days later.

Tradition holds that John, the writer of Revelation, was the same John who was one of the original Twelve Disciples.

In what book written by a major prophet do you find this verse?

Answer: Isaiah

The verse is from Isaiah 17:13 and is part of a prophesy by Isaiah pertaining to horrific times ahead for both Israel and Syria. Chapters 18 through 24 go on to tell of God's impending judgment against other nations, including Egypt and Ethiopia. (In the NIV, Ethiopia is referred to as Cush.)

I will cut off man from the face of the land,' says the LORD." In what book written by a minor prophet do you find this verse?

Answer: Zephaniah

The verse in question is from Zephaniah 1:3. Using Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and NIV, Zephaniah consists of three chapters and much of the content tells of God taking vengeance against the people for their wickedness and worshipping false gods.

Out of the four possible answers, Zephaniah is the only one who was a minor prophet. Daniel and Isaiah are regarded as major prophets and Luke was a worker in the early church who is credited with writing two New Testament books.
