Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. According to 1 Samuel 1:1, Samuel was a descendant of a man whose name starts with the letter 'Z'. What was the man's name?

Answer: Zuph

The correct answer is Zuph, who was Samuel's great-great-great-grandfather. Not much is known about Zuph, apart from the fact he was an Ephramite. 1 Samuel 1:1 in the NKJV gives an outline of Samuel's lineage: "Now there was a certain man of Ramathaim Zophim, of the mountains of Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph." Samuel was the last judge of Israel. After his rule, Saul became king. Samuel's parents were Elkanah and Hannah.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled '25 Bible Names Starting With the Letter Z', but ended up not being used.)
2. Going by Scripture, out of the four incidents below involving illicit sex, which one happened first?

Answer: A drunken Lot impregnating his daughters

Out of the four incidents above involving illicit sex, the first one to happen was Lot impregnating his two daughters, as per Genesis 19:30-38. According to Scripture, Lot's two unnamed daughters got him drunk to trick him into impregnating them. The young women thought their actions were justified as there were no other men for them in the area and they wanted to preserve their father's blood line, according to Scripture.

The account of Reuben sleeping with Bilhah, his father's concubine, appears in Genesis 35:23, while the account of Judah impregnating his daughter-in-law Tamar is found in Genesis 38.

Meanwhile, the account of Amnon, a son of David, raping his half sister Tamar can be found in 2 Samuel 13.

(The question was originally written for my quiz titled 'Biblical Affairs' but was never used.)
3. According to Exodus 2:16-18, who was the father of seven daughters?

Answer: Reuel

Reuel, also known as Jethro elsewhere in Exodus, was the father of seven daughters. He was a priest of Midian, and Moses ended up fleeing there after he murdered an unnamed Egyptian man. Scripture tells of Moses meeting Reuel's seven daughters at a well. Later, Moses would marry Zipporah, one of the seven daughters of Reuel/Jethro. Moses and Zipporah were the parents of two sons, Gershom and Eliezer. Apart from Zipporah, the names of Reuel's seven daughters are not given in Scripture.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'Seven -- A Common Number in the Bible', but was never used.)
4. In what book in the New Testament do you read about the appointment of seven Grecian deacons to serve widows?

Answer: Acts

The account of seven Grecian deacons being appointed to serve widows is found in Acts 6:1-5. According to the passage, a complaint was made the Herbrews were neglecting Grecian widows in the daily distribution of food. As a result, it was agreed to appoint seven Grecian men to oversee the distribution of food to their widows. The seven chosen to serve as deacons were Stephen, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'Seven -- A Common Number in the Bible' but was never used.)
5. According to 1 Chronicles 15:27, who was a Levite leader who was in charge of the music in the time of David? (The NIV has a slightly different spelling for the name.)

Answer: Chenaniah

According to 1 Chronicles 15:22, Chenaniah was a leader of the Levites and was instructor in charge of the music "because he was skillful". (In the NIV, Chenaniah's name appears as Kenaniah. Rather than state Chenaniah was in charge of the music, the NIV says he was in charge of singing.)

Chenaniah's name also appears in 1 Chronicles 15:27 and 1 Chronicles 26:29.

(The question was originally written for my quiz titled '25 Bible Names Starting With the Letter C' but was never used.)
6. The account of David originally seeing Bathsheba naked having a bath and then committing adultery with her is one of the best known stories in the Old Testament. What was the name of the child Bathsheba conceived from their adulterous affair?

Answer: Scripture doesn't say

Going by Scripture, the infant appears to have never been named. If he was named by David and Bathsheba, there is no indication in Scripture.

According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, it is possible the child was less than eight days old "as the baby seems to have not lived long enough to be named." The notes go on to state normally, a child would be named at the time of circumcision, the eighth day, as per Luke 1:59. With this said, there is actually no way of determining the baby's age at the time of death as Scripture is short of precise details.

Nathan the prophet declared the baby would die as punishment for the fact David had committed adultery with Bathsheba and then orchestrated the murder of her husband Uriah. It seems the reason David was not stuck dead by God is the fact he confessed to Nathan he was guilty of sinning before the LORD.

A fuller confession of David's guilt appears in Psalm 51. And for more For details about David's confession of guilt, see 2 Samuel 12:13-20.

(The question is left over from a quiz tiled 'The Bare Facts: Nakedness In the Bible'.)
7. Acts 19:11-20 tells of a man possessed by an evil spirit overpowering some itinerant Jewish exorcists and "they fled out of that house naked and wounded." In what city did such an event take place?

Answer: Ephesus

The highly unusual event took place in Ephesus, an ancient Greek city in present day Turkey. According to Acts 19:11-20 some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits. Scripture states the exorcists, while attempted to heal an unnamed man, proclaimed, "We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches." The evil spirit inside the man responded, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?"

Scripture goes on to state the man possessed by the evil spirit "leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded."

According to Verse 17, the incident became known to everyone in Ephesus; and "the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified."

Verse 19 goes on to state many of those who had practiced magic brought their books "and burned them in the sight of all." The value of the books totalled fifty thousand pieces of silver.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'The Bare Facts: Nakedness in the Bible', but was never used.)
8. What Old Testament prophet prophesied about two naked sisters who were harlots?

Answer: Ezekiel

Ezekiel is the correct answer with details about two naked harlot sisters appearing in the Chapter 23. Verse 4 states the name of the sisters were Oholah and Oholibah. Notes in the NKJV Study Bible explains Oholah means 'Her Own Tabernacle' while Oholibah means 'My Tabernacle is In Her'. The notes go on to explain one of the naked sisters represents the northern kingdom of Israel while the second sister represents the southern kingdom of Judah.

The prophecy, of course, pertains, to the people prostituting themselves by turning from God and worshipping false gods.

(The question was originally written for my quiz titled 'The Bare Facts: Nakedness in the Bible', but was never used.)
9. Who made the statement, "naked I came from my mother's womb..."?

Answer: Job

Job made the statement, as per Job 21. The entire verse states, "Naked I came from my mother's womb and naked I will return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."

Job had his life torn to shatters when a series of calamities happened which killed his seven sons and three daughters, left him impoverished and in failing health. An attempt by his friends to comfort him was futile, as they largely made matters worse. However, the book of Job concludes by stating Job was blessed immensely in his old age.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'The Bare Facts: Nakedness in the Bible', but was never used.)
10. The following verse is from a New Testament book in the NKJV written by the apostle Paul: "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" In what book do you find this statement?

Answer: Romans

The statement by Paul is found in Romans 8:35. In the verse, Paul is stating there is no one or no thing that can separate us from the love of Christ. In other words, Christ's love is constant and never ending.

The Book of Romans is the sixth book in the New Testament. Out of the thirteen books Paul is credited with writing, Romans is the largest, consisting of sixteen chapters. The book, of course, is addressed to believers in the early church at Rome. Romans follows Acts and appears before First Corinthians.
