Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Judges 16:2 in the NKJV tells of people being "quiet all night" as they surrounded the house of a harlot in Gaza in a bid to kill a judge of Israel in the morning. What is the name of the judge they were determined to kill?

Answer: Samson

Samson is the correct answer. According to Judges 16 in the NKJV, Samson entered the house of a prostitute in Gaza and when the locals found out, they set a trap to kill him in the morning. Verse 2 states "they surrounded the place" and they "were quiet all night", saying, "In the morning, when it is daylight, we will kill him."

However, Samson, the super strong judge of Israel, thwarted their plans when he made a break for it during the night. According to Verse 3, Samson arose at midnight, "took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two gateposts, pulled them up, bar and all, put them on his shoulders, and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron." No further details are given.

2. The following quote containing the word 'quiet', as per the NKJV, was made by a long-suffering man: "I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes." Who made the statement that he was not at ease and was not quiet?

Answer: Job

Job, of course, is the correct answer. He made the comment in Job 3:26. The verse is part of a lengthy passage in which Job deplores his birth. The comments were directed at three friends who attempted to comfort him after he suffered through a series of calamities. Job's three friends were Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar. A fourth friend, Elihu, would visit Job later.

3. The following verse containing the word 'quietness' is from an Old Testament book written by a major prophet: "The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever." In what book do you find this verse?

Answer: Isaiah

The verse is from Isaiah 32:17 and is part of a passage telling of the peace of God's reign.

To put the verse in context, here's how Isaiah 32:16-18 reads in the NKJV: "Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places."

Out of the four possible answers, Isaiah is the only one who is considered a major prophet. The works of Nahum, Joel and Habakkuk all appear in the Minor Prophet section of the Old Testament.

4. The following verse is from Psalm 55:17 in the NKJV: "Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice." Who is credited with writing Psalm 55?

Answer: David

Psalm 55 was written by David, a noted king of Israel. The subhead of Psalm 55 in the NKJV Study Bible states, 'Trust in God Concerning the Treachery of Friends'. Out of the one hundred and fifty Psalms that appear in both the Christian Bible and the Hebrew Bible, David is credited with writing more than seventy of them.

For the record, there is no documentation about any of the Psalms written by Lot, Joseph or Saul.

5. Isaiah 58:10 contains the word 'noonday' and reads this way in the NKJV: "If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday." Who was Isaiah?

Answer: A prophet of God and son of Amoz

Isaiah was a prophet of God who was the son of Amoz. He prophesied in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. The verse is part of an extensive passage pertaining to fasting that pleases God.

To put the verse in perspective, here's how Isaiah 58:9-11 reads in the NKJV:
"Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, 'Here I am.' If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you extend your soul to the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your soul in drought and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail."

(The question is left over from a quiz titled 'It Happened at Noon In the Bible'.)
6. Lamentations 3:22-23 contains the word 'morning' and reads this way in the NKJV: "Through the LORD'S mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness." The old-time Gospel hymn 'Great is Thy Faithfulness' is based on these two verses.

Answer: True

True. The old-time Gospel hymn 'Great is Thy Faithfulness' is based on Lamentations 3:22-23. The lyrics for the ever popular hymn were written by Thomas Chisholm in 1923 with the music composed by William M. Runyan in Baldwin City, Kansas. The hymn is often featured in crusades conducted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

According to Wikipedia, 'Great is Thy Faithfulness' is the official hymn of Cairn University, which was formerly Philadelphia Biblical University and prior to that Philadelphia College of Bible, founded in 1913.

7. 2 Kings 10:7-8 in the NKJV contains a macabre account of the heads of seventy sons of a king placed "in two heaps at the entrance of the gate until morning." Who was the king who had seventy sons beheaded?

Answer: Ahab

Seventy sons of Ahab were beheaded with instructions given to "lay them in two heaps at the entrance of the gate until morning," as per 2 Kings 10:8 in the NKJV. The slaughter of Ahab's sons was spearheaded by Jehu, the man who killed Jezebel, generally regarded as the most wicked woman in the Bible.

After Ahab was killed in a battle, Jehu became king of Israel and one of his first tasks was to kill all members of Ahab's family.

8. Nehemiah 8:3 tells of the Israelites gathering after construction of the walls around Jerusalem to hear a man read from the Book of the Law from morning until midday. Who read from the Book of the Law to the people?

Answer: Ezra

According to Nehemiah 8:3 in the NKJV, the Israelites gathered in "the open square that was in front of the Water Gate from morning until midday" to hear Ezra, the priest and scribe, read from the Book of the Law. The reading marked the completion of reconstruction of the wall around Jerusalem by the people who were led by Nehemiah and Ezra. The wall was built by Israelites who had been taken captive to Babylon. Scripture tells of the Israelites receiving permission to return to Jerusalem to re-build their beloved city.

9. According to Esther 5:14, Zeresh told her husband Haman to build a gallows fifty cubits high and, in the morning, suggest to the king a certain man should be hanged on it. Who did Zeresh say should be hanged on the gallows in the morning?

Answer: Mordecai

Zeresh told her husband Haman to build a gallows fifty cubits high and "in the morning suggest to the king that Mordecai be hanged on it," as per Esther 5:14 in the NKJV. Haman had a heinous plan to kill all the Jews in the Persian empire and Mordecai, a Jew, was one of his main adversaries.

Mordecai, however, would team with his cousin Esther to prevent Haman from carrying out his outrageously wicked scheme. Ironically, Haman would end up being hanged on the very gallows he built for the execution of Mordecai.

10. A city mentioned in Revelation 3:1 has a name that begins and ends with the same letter. What is its name?

Answer: Sardis

Sardis is one of seven churches mentioned by John in Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible. Sardis is described as a "dead" church as its members had apparently lost their way, as per Revelation 3:1-6 in the NKJV.

In addition to Sardis, the six other churches mentioned in Revelation were based in Epehsus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Philadelphia and Laodicea.
