So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Revelation

The verse is from Revelation 9:2, a book written by John while in exile on the island of Patmos.

Even for a person who has seldom read the Bible, there's a fifty per cent chance they would get this question correct as out of the four possible answers, Revelation and Luke are the only ones from the New Testament.
