Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. According to Numbers 22:4, the father of Balak, king of Moab, had a name that starts with the letter Z. What was the name of Balak's father?

Answer: Zippor

Zippor was the father of Balak, king of Moab, according to Numbers 22:4. However, not much is known about Zippor as he is mentioned in passing reference.

Incidentally, Chapter 22 of Numbers goes on to tell of Balaam of Peor and the donkey that spoke to him. The account of Balaam and the talking donkey can be found in Numbers 22:22-40.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled '25 Bible Names Starting With the Letter Z', but ended up not being used.)
2. Out of the names listed below starting with the letter Z, which one was a wife of King Josiah, as per the NKJV and the KJV? (In the NIV she has a slightly different name that also starts with the letter Z.)

Answer: Zebudah

Zebudah is the correct answer. (In the NIV, she is known as Zebidah.) Zebudah was the mother of Jehoiakim, who became king of Israel at age tewnty-five and reigned eleven years, as per 2 Kings 23:36. Scripture states she was the daughter of Pedaiah and she was from Rumah. According to Scripture, Jehoiakim did "evil in the eyes of the LORD, just as his predecessors had done."

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled '25 Bible Names Starting With the Letter Z', but ended up not being used.)
3. Out of the four names below starting with the letter Z, who was the father of Shammua, a spy sent by Moses into the land of Canaan? (Numbers 13:4.)

Answer: Zaccur

According to Numbers 13:4, Zaccur was the father of Shammua, a spy sent by Moses into the land of Canaan prior to the Israelites crossing the Jordan River. According to Scripture, twelve spies were sent into Canaaan and only two -- Joshua and Caleb -- returned with positive reports.

Zaccur and his son Shammua were descendants of Reuben, one of the twelve sons of Jacob.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled '25 Bible Names Starting With the Letter Z', but ended up not being used.)
4. According to Numbers 13:16, what was Joshua's given name?

Answer: Hoshea

Joshua's original name was Hoshea, according to Numbers 13:16. However, the verse states Moses gave him a new name -- Joshua. According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, the name change "probably indicated great esteem on Moses' part."

Hoshea means 'Salvation' while Joshua means 'the Lord Saves.' Jesus is another translation for the name Joshua.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'Old Testament People with 2 Names'. The question was never used.)
5. What's the name Naomi gave herself after the deaths of her husband and two sons, as per Ruth 1:20-21?

Answer: Mara

Naomi it seemed had everything going against her. According to Ruth 1:3, she was left a widow when her husband Elimelek died. Then things got worse when, according to Verse 5, her two sons Mahlon and Chilion both died. (In the NIV, Chilion is called Kilion.)

Things were so bad for Naomi that she told people her name was Mara, which basically means 'bitter', as per Ruth 1:20-21.

Naomi was the mother-in-law of Ruth, who would later marry Boaz. Their marriage resulted in the birth of Obed, who according to Ruth 4:22, ended up being the grandfather of David.

(This question was originally written for my quiz titled 'Old Testament People with 2 Names'. The question was never used.)
6. According to Acts 8:9, where did Simon the sorcerer "astonish" people?

Answer: Samaria

According to Scripture, Simon "astonished" people in Samaria with his actions. Acts 8:10 in the NKJV states "they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest" to Simon, saying, "this man is the great power of God." Verse 11 adds he had "astonished them with his sorceries for a long time."

However, Scripture goes on to state Simon became converted by the preaching of Philip and after being baptized, he continued with Philip.

(This question was used ever-so-briefly in my quiz titled 'A Quick Look at Bible People Called Simon'. However, after I realized I forgot to pose a question about Simon Iscariot, the father of Judas, I opted to pull this question. After all, there was already another question in the quiz about Simon the Sorcerer.)
7. Esau was the first-born son of Isaac and Nebajoth was the first-born son of Ishmael. How were Esau and Nebajoth related?

Answer: They were cousins

Nebajoth, the first-born son of of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13) and Esau, the first-born son of Isaac (Genesis 25:25) were cousins. Ishmael and Isaac were brothers, the sons of Abraham.

According to Scripture, Ishmael had twelve sons. In addition to Nebaioth, they were Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadar, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah, as per Genesis 25:13-15. Ishmael also had one known daughter, Mahalath or Basemath, the third wife of Esau. (Genesis 25:13-15)

Meanwhile, Isaac was the father of two boys, Esau and Jacob. (Genesis 25:28)

Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Hagar, is generally regarded as the father of the Arab nation. Genesis 21:21 tells of Hagar getting a wife for Ishmael from "the land of Egypt." However, no name is given.

(The question was left over from a quiz pertaining to cousins in the Bible.)
8. Who was in a tent when the LORD told her husband she would have a child in her old age? (Genesis 18:9-12)

Answer: Sarah

Sarah is the correct answer. According to Scripture, Sarah and her husband were both of an advanced age when the LORD made the pronouncement they would finally have a child. Scripture states Abraham was one hundred years old while Sarah was ninety years old. (See Genesis 17:17.) Abraham was once known as Abram and Sarah was known as Sarai.

Details can be found in Genesis 18:9-12 about the news being given to elderly couple.

(The question was left over from a quiz titled 'Tents: Ten Trivial Tidbits to Tackle Today'.)
9. "My tears have been my food day and night" is part of a verse which is featured in a contemplation by the sons of Korah. In what book in the Old Testament do you find the verse?

Answer: Psalms

The verse is from Psalm 42:3. The sons of Korah are believed to be descendants of Korah, a man who led a rebellion against Moses while the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness for forty years. According to Numbers 26:9-11, the earth opened up and swallowed Korah and his followers.

(The question was left over from a quiz titled 'For Crying Out Loud: A Quiz About Tears in the Bible'.)
10. Who, according to John 18:30, stated in a loud voice, "It is finished"?

Answer: Jesus

The correct answer is Jesus. According to Scripture, the final words by Jesus before death by crucifixion were, "It is finished." However, three days later, Christ would rise dramatically from the dead, as per the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

(The question was left over from a quiz about 'Voices Heard by People in the Bible'.)
