Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. According to Exodus 9:8-12 what skin condition afflicted the Egyptians during the sixth plague unleashed on the country?

Answer: boils

The Egyptians became afflicted with boils after God instructed Moses and Aaron to take "handfuls of ashes from a furnace" and scatter it "toward the heavens in the sight of Pharaoh."

According to Exodus 9:8-12, the ashes from the furnace became fine dust, causing "boils that break out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt."

The plague was part of a divine plan to convince the Pharaoh to grant permission to the Israelites to leave Egypt and move to Canaan, known as the Promised Land.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Moses.)
2. According to Exodus 16:31, what was the name of the food that miraculously appeared and was eaten by the Israelites as they journeyed from Egypt to Canaan?

Answer: manna

The Israelites called the food they miraculously received from heaven manna, as per Exodus 16:31. The verse states the food was like "white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey."

Exodus 16:4 also tells of the miraculous appearance of manna: "And when the layer of dew lifted, there, on the surface of the wilderness, was a small round substance, as fine as frost on the ground."

Manna started appearing after God told Moses He would provide food for the Israelites as they had been complaining they had lots of food to eat while they were in bondage in Egypt.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Moses.)
3. According to Exodus 12:21-30, what did the Israelites put on their doorposts to prevent an angel of death from visiting them in Egypt?

Answer: Blood of a lamb

Exodus 12 states Moses and Aaron received divine instructions to inform the Israelites to put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts to cause an angel of death to pass over. Meanwhile, the angel of death visited every home in Egypt without the blood of a lamb, resulting in the deaths of all firstborn sons. The deadly visit by the angel was part of the tenth plague unleashed on Egypt. The event has been commemorated by Jews for centuries with the celebration of the Passover.

Meanwhile, many Christians associate the placing of blood on the doorposts with Jesus Christ as they believe the blood of Christ, also known as the Lamb of God, was shed on Calvary for their salvation.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Moses.)
4. According to Exodus 14:21, God used a strong east wind to part the Red Sea.

Answer: True

True. According to Exodus 14:21, the miraculous parting of the Red Sea for the Israelites was caused by a strong east wind. The verse in the NKJV states: "Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided."

Scripture goes on to tell of the Israelites safely crossing the sea to start their forty-year-long journey to Canaan, known as the Promised Land.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Moses.)
5. As part of the fifth plague on Egypt, what happened to the livestock of the Egyptians, as per Exodus 9:1-7?

Answer: The animals were struck dead

All the livestock of the Egyptians was struck dead after God requested Moses to once again request permission for the Israelites to leave Egypt and travel to Canaan. Similar to previous occasions, the Pharaoh refused to grant permission to Moses and as a result, all the livestock of the Egyptians was struck dead. However, Exodus 9:1-7 points out only the animals owned by the Egyptians died. The livestock owned by the Israelites was not affected.

It was the fifth plague unleashed by God on Egypt.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Moses.)
6. True or false: Paul raised Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, from the dead while Peter raised Eutychus from the dead after he fell out of a third storey window.

Answer: False

False. It's the other way around. Peter, not Paul, raised Dorcas from the dead, as per Acts 9:36-42. Meanwhile, it was Paul, not Peter, who raised Eutychus from the dead after he tumbled out of a third floor window. Details about Eutychus being raised from the dead can found in Acts 20:7-12.

According to Scripture, Dorcas lived in Joppa and Eutychus lived in Troas.

(The question is left over from a quiz about the miracles of Peter and Paul.)
7. Who became a shepherd in Midian for his father-in-law Jethro?

Answer: Moses

Moses served as a shepherd for his father-in-law Jethro, as per Exodus 3:1. Jethro, who is also referred to as Reuel in Old Testament Scripture, was the father of seven daughters. With the exception of Zipporah, the names of the daughters are not given in Scripture. Incidentally, Zipporah became Moses' wife, as per Exodus 2:21.

(The question is left over from a quiz about shepherds in the Old and New Testaments.)
8. As per the NKJV, what prophet of God and writer of an Old Testament book said, "Woe to the worthless shepherd"?

Answer: Zechariah

Zechariah is the correct answer as per Zechariah 11:17. The entire verse in the NKJV states:
"Woe to the worthless shepherd,
Who leaves the flock!
A sword shall be against his arm
And against his right eye;
His arm shall completely wither,
And his right eye shall be totally blinded."

Zechariah was one of three prophets who ministered to exiles returning from Babylon to Jerusalem. The two other prophets were Haggai and Malachi. All three prophets are writers of books in the Minor Prophet section of the Old Testament.

(The question is left over from a quiz about shepherds in the Old and New Testaments.)
9. Who used a horn, presumably from a ram, as a container for oil?

Answer: Samuel

According to 1 Samuel 16:1, Samuel used a horn, believed to be from a ram (a male sheep) as a container for oil. In the verse, God instructs Samuel to fill the horn with oil and asks him to find a replacement for Saul as king as Israel.

Scripture goes on to tell of Samuel taking the horn of oil and anointing David in the midst of his brothers. After the anointing, Scripture states, "the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward."

(The question is left over from a quiz about sheep in the Old and New Testaments.)
10. According to Genesis 32:13-18, who gave his highly agitated brother a large number of animals, including twenty female donkeys, as a goodwill offering?

Answer: Jacob

Jacob is the correct answer. Genesis 32:13-18 tells of Jacob meeting his slightly older twin brother Esau for the first time since he deceived Isaac into giving him the blessing intended for Esau. When Jacob fraudulently obtained his blessing, Esau stated his intention to kill him, as per Genesis 27:41. As a result, Jacob followed his mother Rebekah's advice and fled to Haran.

With the two brothers meeting for the first time since the fraudulent blessing, Jacob tried to smooth things over by giving Esau a goodwill offering consisting of a large number of animals.

In addition to twenty female donkeys with ten foals, Jacob gave Esau two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, thirty milk camels with their colts and forty cows and ten bulls, as per Genesis 32:14-15.

There apparently was no need for Jacob's goodwill offering as Scripture tells of the two brothers having a tearful, heartfelt reunion with previous wrongdoings forgotten.
