Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Exodus.

Answer: 40

Using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV, the Book of Exodus contains forty chapters. In order of appearance, it is the second book in both the Christian Bible and the Hebrew Bible. Exodus provides an account of God unleashing ten different plagues on Egypt to convince the Pharaoh to grant permission to the Israelites to leave the nation and journey to Canaan, known as the Promised Land.

The Isrealites were led on their forty-year-long journey to Canaan by Moses and his brother Aaron and their sister Miriam. Tradition holds the Book of Exodus was written by Moses.
2. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Jeremiah.

Answer: 52

The Book of Jeremiah contains fifty-two chapters, using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. Jeremiah, the author of the book, was the son of Hilkiah, according to Jeremiah 1:1. He prophesied in the time leading up to and after the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem.

It is believed his prophecies were issued over a forty year period. Jeremiah was known as the weeping prophet, largely because of lamments he had for the Isrealite nation in general.
3. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Joshua.

Answer: 24

Twenty-four chapters are found in the Book of Joshua, using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. Using the three Bible versions, Joshua, in order of appearance, is the sixth book. Tradition holds the book was written by Joshua, the man selected to replace Moses and lead the Israelites into Canaan, known as the Promised Land.

The book tells of the Israelites and their military campaigns as they gained control of the land. A substantial portion of the book is also devoted to the distribution of land to the twelve tribes of Israel.
4. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Micah.

Answer: 7

The correct answer is seven. Micah, the author of the book that bears his name, prophesied in the days of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. The Book of Micah is part of the Minor Prophet section in the Christian Bible and the Twelve Prophet section in the Hebrew Bible. Using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV, the Book of Micah is one of the larger books in the Minor Prophet section.

In fact, only Hosea (fourteen chapters), Zechariah (fourteen chapters) and Amos (nine chapters) are larger.
5. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Malachi.

Answer: 4

Using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV, the Book of Malachi has four chapters. Using the three Bible versions, Malachi is the last book in the Minor Prophet section as well as the last book in the Old Testament. Tradition holds the book was written by a man known as Malachi.

However, some modern day scholars dispute this belief pointing out Malachi simply translates as 'My Messenger'. Malachi is one of the shortest books in the Old Testament with only Joel (three chapters), Nahum (three chapters), Habakkuk (three chapters), Zephaniah (three chapters), Haggai (two chapters) and Obadiah (one chapter) being shorter.
6. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Gospel of Mark.

Answer: 16

The Gospel of Mark has sixteen chapters, using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. It is the second book, in order of appearance, in the New Testament. The book was written by a worker in the early church called Mark, also known as John Mark. Mark is the only Gospel to tell of Jesus healing a blind and dumb man (7:31) and a blind paralytic man at Bethsaida (8:22). Mark is also the only Gospel to tell of the parable of the Growing Seed (4:26-29) and the parable of the Creditor and Two Debtors (13:33-37).

I find it fascinating the Gospel of Mark contains the word 'immediately' more times than any other book in the Christian Bible. Using the NKJV, for example, the word 'immediately' is found no less than thirty-six times in Mark but only seven times in the Gospel of John.
7. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Acts.

Answer: 28

The Book of Acts contains twenty-eight chapters, using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. In the order of appearance, it is the fifth book in the New Testament, appearing after the Gospel of John and before the Book of Romans. The author of the book was Luke, a physician and worker in the early church who often served alongside Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles.

The Book of Acts provides a history of the early church and describes how the Gospel message was successfully spread in Turkey and Europe. It also tells of a number of miracles performed by the likes of Peter and Paul, as well as the severe trials and tribulations faced by church workers of the day.
8. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of Ephesians.

Answer: 6

Ephesians, a book written by Paul, contains six chapters using Bible versions such as the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. The book is actually a letter that was addressed to believers in the early church in Ephesus, a city in Asia Minor, now part of present day Turkey. Most of the inhabitants of the ancient city were Greek.

Using the three Bible versions, two other New Testament books also have six chapters. They are Galatians and 1 Timothy.
9. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of 1 Thessalonians.

Answer: 5

The Book of 1 Thessalonians contains five chapters, using the KJV, NKJV and the NIV. The book was written by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, and addressed to followers of Christ in the Greek city of Thessaloniki. In total, Paul is credited with writing thirteen books in the New Testament.

Three other books in the New Testament also have five chapters, using the three versions of the Bible. New Testament books with five chapters are James, 1 Peter and 1 John.
10. Find the match for the number of chapters in the Book of 2 John.

Answer: 1

The Book of 2 John, similar to 3 John, consists of only one chapter. The book is based on a letter written by John, a member of the original Twelve Disciples. In addition to 2 John and 3 John, two other books in the New Testament have only one chapter. They are Philemon and Jude.

Using the KJV, NKJV and NIV, Obadiah is the only book in the Old Testament that consists of only one chapter.
