Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Going strictly by Scripture, how many children did Zebedee have?

Answer: 2

Going strictly by Scripture, Zebedee had two sons -- James and John. His sons were two of the original Twelve Disciples, as per Mark 1:19. Zebedee was a fisherman like his two sons. Many theologians believe Zebedee's wife was Salome.

It is possible Zebedee and Salome were the parents of other children, but going by Scripture, the correct answer to the question has to be two.

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Children In the Old and New Testaments.)
2. According to 1 Samuel 1:8, who asked his barren wife Hannah if he was not worth more to her than ten sons?

Answer: Elkanah

Elkanah, the husband of Hannah, is the correct answer. According to Scripture, Hannah was unable to conceive while Peninnah, a second wife of Elkanan, was giving birth to sons and daughters. Making things extra difficult for Hannah was the fact Peninnah was ruthlessly taunting her for being barren. 1 Samuel 1:8 in the NKJV tells of Elkanah finding Hannah crying and refusing to eat by asking her, "... Why is your heart grieved? Am I not better to you than ten sons?"

Scripture goes on to tell of Hannah fervently praying to God and miraculously giving birth to Samuel.

3. According to 2 Kings 20:12-19, what well-known prophet of God predicted the Babylonian exile to Hezekiah, king of Judah?

Answer: Isaiah

Isaiah is the correct answer. The noted prophet of God predicted Babylonians would conquer Judah and take the people into captivity after King Hezekiah welcomed envoys from Babylon into his house. Hezekiah told Isaiah the envoys were warmly welcomed, stating "they have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them."

In 1 Kings 20:16-18, tells of Isaiah responding to Hezekiah, stating: "Hear the word of the LORD: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left. And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon'."

And, sure enough, Isaiah's prophesy would come true.

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'Exiles in the Old and New Testaments'.)
4. According to 2 Kings 23:11, who removed the horse idols the kings of Judah had erected?

Answer: Josiah

Josiah is the correct answer. Kings 23 tells of Josiah gathering all the elders of Judah and Israel to restore true worship of the LORD among the Israelites. The passage goes on to tell of the destruction of items of worship for pagan gods. Verse 11 in the NKJV states: "Then he removed the horses that the kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun, at the entrance to the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathan-Melech, the officer who was in the court; and he burned the chariots of the sun with fire."

According to 2 Kings 22:1-3, Josiah was only eight years old when he became king of Judah, reigning thirty-one years in Jerusalem. He was the son of Amon and Jedidah. The passage states Josiah did what was right in the sight of the LORD and "did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left."

5. According to Genesis 50:9, who had men on horses accompany him as he went to bury his father?

Answer: Joseph

Genesis 50:1-14 tells of Joseph's father Jacob dying in Egypt with the Egyptians mourning his death for seventy days. The passage also tells of Joseph fulfilling a vow for his father and burying him in Canaan. According to Verse 9, Joseph was accompanied from Egypt to Canaan by "a very great gathering" of chariots and horsemen." After the burial, Joseph and his entourage returned to Egypt.

6. What Old Testament prophet prophesied about the Messiah coming to His people on a donkey?

Answer: Zechariah

Zecarhiah 9:9 is the correct answer. Christians believe the verse is prophecy referring to the arrival of Jesus in the New Testament.

The verse in the NKJV states:
"Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey."

Zechariah was an Old Testament prophet and the writer of the book in the Minor Prophet section that bears his name. According to Zechariah 1:1, he was the the son of Berechiah and the grandson of Iddo.

7. According to Exodus 4:20, who set his wife and two sons on a donkey when he returned to Egypt?

Answer: Moses

Moses is the correct answer. According to Scripture, Moses fled to Midian after he killed an unnamed Egyptian man. While in Midian, he married Zipporah, the daughter of Reuel, who is also known as Jethro. Moses and Zipporah were the parents of two boys -- Gershom and Eliezer.

Moses 4:19-20 in the NKJV, tells of the LORD giving Moses divine instructions to return to Egypt and Moses seating his wife and sons on a donkey: "Now the LORD said to Moses in Midian, 'Go, return to Egypt; for all the men who sought your life are dead.' Then Moses took his wife and his sons and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt."

8. According to Genesis 22:1-3, who used a donkey to transport wood he intended to use to sacrifice his son on?

Answer: Abraham

Genesis 221-3 tells of Abraham getting divine instructions to go to the land of Moriah and offer his son Isaac as a burnt offering. The passage tells of Abraham splitting some wood, getting a donkey and taking Isaac and two of his young men with him to head to Moriah.

However, at the last minute, Abraham was told he no longer needed to sacrifice Isaac as he had proven his deep love for God. Scripture goes on to tell of a ram being miraculously found with its horns locked in the thicket. Abraham took the ram and sacrificed it while Isaac looked on.

9. According to 1 Samuel 9, a future king of Israel was looking for lost donkeys when he encountered Samuel. What was the name of the future king?

Answer: Saul

Saul had been requested by his father Kish to search for an unstated number of missing donkeys when he encountered Samuel, the last judge of Israel. According to Scripture, Samuel had received divine instructions to contact Saul and to make him the first king over Israel.

Scripture goes on to tell of Saul being extremely reluctant to become king, but after some persuasion by Samuel and many others, he had a change of heart.

See Chapters 9 and 10 of 1 Samuel for details.

10. In three different Gospels, Jesus made the statement it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Which Gospel does NOT contain the statement by Jesus about a camel and a rich man?

Answer: John

John is the only Gospel that does not contain an account of Jesus stating it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Details about Jesus making the statement after a conversation with a rich, young ruler can be found in Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25 and Luke 18:25.

While the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke offer an overview of Christ's three-year-long ministry, John is different in the sense it concentrates on the final few days of His ministry. As a result, John often does not contain the information that is found in the three other Gospels.
