Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who asked Jesus this question? "Lord, are You washing my feet?"

Answer: Peter

Peter asked the question of Jesus at the Last Supper, as per John 13:6. When Jesus answered Peter, saying, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this," Peter was defiant. "You shall never wash my feet!" he is quoted as saying in Verse 8.

When Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me," Peter again spoke without thinking things through. In Verse 9, he is quoted as telling Jesus, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"

Verse 10 tells of Christ's response: "He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you." (The statement 'not all of you' was in reference to Judas Iscariot who would betray Him.)

After washing their feet, Jesus goes on to tell His disciples: "Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."

(The question is left over from a quiz about questions people asked Jesus.)
2. Who asked Jesus this question? "How did the fig tree wither away so soon?"

Answer: The original Twelve Disciples

Matthew 21:20 tells of the original Twelve Disciples asking the question of Jesus after they saw a fig tree wither before their eyes. Previous verses state Jesus was hungry and saw a fig tree by the road but found no fruit on it. Jesus is quoted as saying to the tree: "Let no fruit grow on you ever again." Immediately the fig tree withered away.

When the disciples saw the incident, Scripture states they marveled, wanting to know, "How did the fig tree wither away so soon?"

Verses 21 and 22 tell of Christ's response to the disciples: "Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

(The question is left over from a quiz about questions people asked Jesus.)
3. Who asked Jesus this question? "Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?"

Answer: Pilate

Pilate asked the question of Jesus, as per Matthew 27:13. The following verse goes on to state Jesus "answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly."

Scripture goes on to tell of Pilate appearing before an unruly crowd and asking if they wanted Jesus or Barabbas, a notorious prisoner, released. The crowed responded by saying Barabbas should be released and Jesus crucified.

Pilate gave into the demands of the crowd and in a symbolic gesture he washed his hands before the gathering, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it."

See Matthew 27:15-26 for details.

(The question is left over from a quiz about questions people asked Jesus.)
4. Who asked Jesus this question? "Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast?"

Answer: Disciples of John the Baptist

Jesus was questioned about fasting by the disciples of John the Baptist, as per Matthew 9:14. In His response, Christ asked them a question: "Can the friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them?"

Scripture goes on to quote Jesus telling the disciples of John that the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them and then they will fast.

No names are given for the disciples of John. However, it is known Andrew, one of the original Twelve Disciples, was a disciple of John at one time, as per John 1:35-40.
5. Who did Jesus ask this question? "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"

Answer: The Pharisees

Jesus asked the question of the Pharisees, just prior to healing a man with dropsy. Details about Jesus healing the man with dropsy on the Sabbath can be found in Luke 14:1-6. Rather than use the term dropsy, the NIV says the man was suffering form abnormal swelling of his body.

After healing the man, Jesus is quoted as asking the Pharisees: "Which of you, having a donkey or an ox that has fallen into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?"

The passage concludes by stating the Pharisees had no response to what Jesus had told them.
6. According to 1 Kings 18:5, what king took Obadiah, his household manager, out looking for grass for the royal horses?

Answer: Ahab

Ahab, king of Israel and husband of Jezebel, is the correct answer. Ahab and Obadiah, his household manager, were looking for grass for the royal horses during an extended drought which Elijah, a prophet of God, prophesied.

Although Ahab was vehemently opposed to prophets of God, Obadiah was completely different. Even though he was Ahab's household manager, Scripture states Obadiah hid one hundred prophets of God in two caves to prevent Ahab and his wife from killing them.

It was while Obadiah was looking for grass for the royal horses he encountered Elijah. During their meeting, Elijah set the wheels in motion to have a duel with four hundred and fifty prophets on Mount Carmel.

See 1 Kings 18:1-18 for details.

(The question is left over from a quiz about horses in the Bible.)
7. According to Revelation 22:5, what city has no need of lamps nor light of the sun?

Answer: New Jerusalem

Make no mistake about it. The New Jerusalem will be a spectacular city according to Scripture. Some of the details about the city can be found in the 21st and 22nd chapters of Revelation. According to Revelation 22:5, there will be no need for light in the city. The verse states, "They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever."

Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible, was written by John while in exile on the island of Patmos.

(The question is left over from a quiz about lamps and lanterns in the Bible.)
8. According to a parable by Jesus in Luke 15:8, what was a woman looking for in her house with a lantern?

Answer: A lost coin

The woman was looking for a lost coin in her house with a lantern. Details about the woman looking for the lost coin appear in a passage known as the Parable of the Lost Coin. The parable appears in Luke 15:8-10.

Appearing just before the passage is the Parable of the Lost Sheep. Following the account of the woman looking for her lost coin is the Parable of the Lost Son, or the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

(The question is left over from a quiz about lamps and lanterns in the Bible.)
9. Out of the four names below, which leader built an altar on Mount Ebal?

Answer: Joshua

Joshua built an altar on Mount Ebal to commemorate renewing of the covenant with the LORD, as per Joshua 8:30. Construction of the altar on Mount Ebal was fulfillment of a commandment Moses had given the Israelites.

Scripture goes on to tell of Joshua writing a copy of the law of Moses on the stones of the altar.

(The question is left over from a quiz about mountains in the Bible.)
10. According to Numbers 11:3, Israelites who were complaining in the wilderness about their misfortunes were devoured by fire sent by God.

Answer: True

True. The complaining Israelites were devoured by fire, as per Numbers 11:3. According to Scripture, the anger of the LORD was aroused when the people of Israel complained about being free, suggesting life was better when they were slaves in Egypt. According to Scripture, Moses called the site Taberah, which, according to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, means burning.
