Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which person is found in the book of Genesis, along with Eve?

Answer: Methuselah

Methuselah and Eve are both found in the book of Genesis. Methuselah has the distinction of being the oldest person in the Bible, being 969 years old when he died, as per Genesis 5:24. For the record, Methuselah's name is also found in 1 Chronicles 1:3 and Luke 3:37, using the NKJV Bible.

Eve, of course was the first woman. Her name also appears in 2 Corinthians 11:3 and 1 Timothy 2:13.
2. Which person is found in the book of Exodus, along with Jochebed?

Answer: Jethro

Jethro, who was also known as Reuel, is the correct answer. He was the father of Zipporah, who became the wife of Moses after he fled from Egypt to Midian. Jethro's name is found in only Exodus, using the NKJV.

Meanwhile, Jochebed was the mother of Moses, as per Exodus 6:20. Her name also appears in Numbers 26:59.

Moses, of course, was the leader of the Israelites when they made an exodus out of Egypt and headed to Canaan, known in Scripture as the Promised Land.
3. Which person is found in the book of Job, along with Keren-Happuch?

Answer: Zophar

Zophar was one of three friends who attempted to comfort Job in his time of great distress. He was accompanied by Eliphaz and Bildad. Using the NKJV, the name Zophar appears in only the book of Job.

Keren-Happuch was one of three daughters born to Job and his unnamed wife in their later years. The two other daughters were Kenzia and Jemimah. According to Job 42:15, "in all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job". Similar to Zophar, the name Karen-Happuch appears in only the book of Job, using the NKJV.
4. Which person is found in the book of 2 Samuel, along with Ishbosheth?

Answer: Bathsheba

Bathsheba, of course, was the woman who had an adulterous affair with David before becoming his wife. In addition to 2 Samuel, her name appears in 1 Kings.

Using the NKJV, Ishbosheth's name is found in only the book of 2 Samuel. He was the son of Saul, and served as king of a divided Israel after his father's death. He ended up being assassinated, with David becoming king of a united Israel.
5. Which person is found in the book of Judges, along with Samson?

Answer: Deborah

Deborah was a dynamic female judge of Israel who had a reputation for making things happen. In addition to being a judge, she is described as a prophetess. Using the NKJV, her name appears in only the book of Judges. (It should be noted there is a second woman in Scripture named Deborah. She was a nurse for Rebekah and her name appears once in Genesis 35:8.)

Meanwhile, Samson was the colorful judge of Israel who ended up being betrayed by his Philistine lover, Deliah. Using the NKJV, his name appears thirty-eight times in Judges and once in Hebrews 11:32, where he is commended for his faith.
6. Which person is found in the book of 2 Timothy, along with Eunice?

Answer: Lois

Eunice and Lois are both mentioned in 2 Timothy 1:5, a letter written by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles. According to the verse, Eunice was Timothy's mother and Lois was his grandmother. Using the NKJV, their names do not appear in any other book in the Bible.
7. Which person is found in Romans along with Priscilla and Aquila?

Answer: Epaenetus

Epaenetus is mentioned in only the book of Romans. In Romans 16:5, Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles, extends greetings to Epaenetus, describing him as the "firstfruits of Achaia." According to Smith's Bible Dictionary, Achaia was a Roman province in Greece which included the whole of the Peloponnesus and the greater part of Hellas proper.

In addition to Romans, Priscilla and Aquila are named in two other books. Their names can be found in Acts (18:2, 18:18, 18:26) and 1 Corinthians 16:19. They were a dynamic husband-wife team who labored alongside Paul in the early church. In Romans 16:4, Paul states Priscilla and Aquila "risked their own necks for my life."
8. Which person is found in the Gospel of Mark, along with Bartholomew?

Answer: Salome

Salome is mentioned in only the Gospel of Mark and nowhere else in the Bible. It is generally believed Salome was the wife of Zebedee and the mother of James and John, two of the original Twelve Disciples. Her name is mentioned in Mark 15:40 and 16:1. (It is largely accepted Salome was also the name of the daughter of Herodias who enthralled Herod with her dancing, but her name does not appear in Scripture.)

Meanwhile, Bartholomew was one of the original Twelve Disciples and his name can be found in the Gospel of Mark, as well as the Gospels of Matthew and Luke and in Acts. (In the Gospel of John, Bartholomew is known as Nathanael.)

Answer: Blastus

According to Acts 12:20, Blastus was a personal aid to Herod. Using the NKJV, this is the only time he is mentioned in the Bible.

10. Which person is found in all four Gospels, along with Jesus?

Answer: John the Baptist

John the Baptist is found in all four Gospels, similar to Jesus. John was the forerunner of Christ and was known for telling the people to repent and baptizing them in the Jordan River. Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11 and Luke 3:21-22 tell of John baptizing Jesus.
