Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' was an extremely popular television program based on the 1992 movie with the same name. Unsurprisingly, there is no mention of vampires in the Bible. However, a number of verses make mention of 'blood' and 'sharp teeth', and even 'fangs'. Here's one such verse from the New King James Version Bible: "For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink for it is their just due." In what book in the New Testament do you find such a statement?

Answer: Revelation

The verse in question comes from Revelation 16:6, the last book of the New Testament. It was written by John while exiled to the windswept island of Patmos in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Greece.

In Revelation 6, John writes about seeing seven angels in his vision, with the third angel making rivers and springs of water turn into blood.

To put things in perspective, here's how Revelation 16:4-7 reads in the NKJV:
"Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying:
'You are righteous, O Lord,
The One who is and who was and who is to be,
Because You have judged these things.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
And You have given them blood to drink.
For it is their just due.'
And I heard another from the altar saying, 'Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments'."

While there is no mention of vampires in the Hebrew Bible or the Christian Bible, some cultures do believe in vampires. However, they are generally ghastly creatures, nothing like the ones popularized in shows such as 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and a number of other TV programs, films and books.
2. The following vampire-like verse is from Proverbs 30:14 in the NKJV: "There is a generation whose teeth are like swords and whose fangs are like knives to devour the poor from off the earth and the needy from among men." Who is credited with writing most of the Book of Proverbs?

Answer: Solomon

Solomon is credited with writing most of the Book of Proverbs. However, chapter 30, which contains the verse featured in the answer, was written by Agur and Proverbs 31:1-9 was written by Lemuel.

The book of Proverbs is one of the most popular in the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament. In a nutshell, the book is packed with witty sayings and many Jews and Christians believe it offers good practical advice.

Proverbs appears after the Book of Psalms in the Hebrew Bible as well as the Christian Bible.

Incidentally, Solomon is also credited with writing Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon as well as two of the Psalms.

The number of books and movies with a vampire theme has exploded since the 1990s with 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' being a prime example. However, the immensely popular books in the Twilight series by American author Stephenie Meyer took things to an unprecedented level. Meyer's novels have been followed by a series of incredibly-popular films.
3. Here's another 'vampirish' verse from the thirteenth book of the Old Testament of the Christian Bible quoting David: "And said, 'Far be it from me before my God that I should do this. Shall I drink the lifeblood of these men? For at the risk of their lives they brought it.' Therefore he would not drink it." In what book do you find such a verse?

Answer: 1 Chronicles

1 Chronicles is the correct answer with the verse coming from Verse 19 of Chapter 11.

The verse in question quotes David who was in a cave with his mighty men before yet another battle with the Philistines. According to Scripture, David had longed for "cold water from the well of Bethlehem" and three of his men responded by risking their lives to retrieve some water for David. Surprisingly, when the water was presented to him, David refused to drink it.

Here's how the story is told in 1 Chronicles 11:15-19 in the NKJV:
"Now three of the thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the army of the Philistines encamped in the Valley of Rephaim. David was then in the stronghold, and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem. And David said with longing, 'Oh, that someone would give me a drink of water from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!' So the three broke through the camp of the Philistines, drew water from the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate, and took it and brought it to David. Nevertheless David would not drink it, but poured it out to the LORD. And he said, 'Far be it from me, O my God, that I should do this! Shall I drink the blood of these men who have put their lives in jeopardy? For at the risk of their lives they brought it.' Therefore he would not drink it. These things were done by the three mighty men."

Notes in the NKJV Study Bible states David's action was not a display of ingratitude. "To the contrary, David expressed the utmost sense of appreciation," the Study Bible notes state. "His men had risked their lives to bring water to David, and now in the face of their selflessness he felt unworthy to drink it. He poured it out to the LORD as though it were an offering of blood."

Stephen King, the undisputed king of horror writers, has featured vampires in a number of his highly-popular books. According to Wikipedia, some of the titles include ''Salem's Lot', 'Wolves of the Calla', 'Song of Susannah' and 'The Dark Tower'. A number of King's short stories also feature vampires.
4. Yet another 'vampirish' sounding verse is found in Psalm 37:12. In the NKJV, the verse states, "The wicked plots against the just and gnashes at him with his teeth." Who is credited with writing a large number of the Psalms?

Answer: David

David is credited with writing a large number of the Psalms. Out of the one hundred and fifty Psalms in the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, David is credited with writing more than seventy.

It's impossible to come up with an exact total, as a number of the Psalms do not have any credit lines. The numbers vary, with different Websites giving a different total for David's contributions. However, the consensus appears to be that David wrote more than seventy Psalms at the very least. According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, some of the other Palmists include Ethan, Heman and Asaph as well as Solomon, who is credited with writing two of the Psalms -- Numbers 72 and 127. Moses is also credited with writing Psalm 90.

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' is only one of a large number of TV shows that have featured vampires. According to Wikipedia, a small sampling of other vampire TV programs includes 'Angel', 'Being Human', 'True Blood', 'The Vampire Diaries', 'Penny Dreadful' and 'The Strain'. There was even a French-Canadian TV series called 'My Babysitter's a Vampire'.
5. Deuteronomy 12:23 tells of a man relaying the following pronouncement from God to the Isrealites: "Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh." Who did God make the statement to?

Answer: Moses

God made the statement to Moses and Moses relayed the information to the Israelites according to Scripture. Moses was given the information while being in the presence of God on Mount Sinai.

Deuteronomy is the English title of the fifth book of the Pentateuch. According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, Deuteronomy means "the second law".

"Deuteronomy is basically the last will of Moses," the NKJV Study Bible notes state. "In this will, he challenged Israel to remain faithful to the covenant, reminded them of their past history, and pointed to their future of blessings or cursings in the land of Canaan, depending on their belief and behavior."

The popularity of vampires is not limited to books and films; the vampire theme can be seen in a number of areas in the entertainment industry in general. For example, Ian Richard Hodgkinson is a Canadian semi-retired wrestler who gained fame as Vampiro in the Spanish speaking world. In Mexico, he is fondly known as Vampiro Canadiense, or the Canadian Vampire.
6. Yet another vampire-like verse is this one from the NKJV: "For a nation has come up against My land, strong, and without number; his teeth are the teeth of a lion and he has the fangs of a fierce lion." From what book in the Minor Prophet section of the Old Testament do you find this verse?

Answer: Joel

Joel is the correct answer with the verse found in Chapter 1, Verse 6. Joel is one of twelve books in the Minor Prophet section of the Christian Bible. Out of the four choices in the question, Obadiah is the only other book that is part of the Minor Prophets.

While the existence of vampires has never been proven, there can be no mistaking the fact that television programs such as 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' have popularized the phenomenon. There have been even incidents in which murders have been conducted with the deranged perpetrator drinking the victim's blood.
7. The following 'vampirish' sounding verse is from Philippians 3:2 in the ESV: "Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh." Who wrote Philippians?

Answer: Paul

Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, is credited with writing Philippians, as well as twelve other books in the New Testament. According to Scripture, Paul was once a vehement opponent of the early church. However, he became a reformed man when he met Jesus Christ on the road of Damascus, as per Acts 9.

According to a Wikipedia entry devoted to vampires, "the charismatic and sophisticated" vampire of modern fiction was born in 1819 with the publication of 'The Vampyre' by John Polidori.
8. The 1992 movie 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' starred Kristy Swanson. Her first starring role was the 1986 movie titled 'Deadly Friend'. Making an extrapolation here, who was the 'deadly friend' of Jesus?

Answer: Judas Iscariot

The 'deadly friend' of Jesus, of course, was Judas Iscariot who, according to Scripture, betrayed Him for thirty pieces of silver.

Bram Stoker's 1897 novel 'Dracula' is credited by many as being the novel responsible for the modern vampire legend.

"The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, and television shows," Wikipedia reports in an article under the headline 'Vampire'. "The vampire has since become a dominant figure in the horror genre."
9. The television show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' featured the young actress Sarah Michelle Gellar as 'Buffy'. Sarah is also a common name in Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible. Who was Sarah in Scripture?

Answer: The wife of Abraham and the mother of Isaac

Sarah, of course, was wife of Abraham. She was the mother of Isaac who would marry Rebekkah and they would become the parents of two boys, Esau and Jacob.

Jacob's sons and grandchildren formed the twelve tribes of Israel, according to Scripture.

Sarah Michelle Gellar starred as Buffy in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', the immensely-popular television program that ran from March 10, 1997, on the WB Television Network and concluded on May 20, 2003, on the United Paramount Network, or UPN.
10. 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' was so popular it gave birth to the spin-off series 'Angel', played by actor David Boreanaz. In the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible, angels are common, being mentioned a number of times. What was the name of the angel who proclaimed to Mary she would give birth to the Son of God?

Answer: Gabriel

The angel Gabriel announced to Mary she would give birth to Jesus while still a virgin, as per Luke 1:26. Gabriel also appeared before an elderly Zecharias (known as Zechariah in the NIV Bible) and announced his wife Elizabeth would give birth to John the Baptist, as per Lukee 1:19.

The fictional character Angel was created by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt for the TV program 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and before long, Angel was featured in the spin-off series 'Angel'.

At one time, there were three hundred more quizzes about 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' on FunTrivia then about the Bible. Well, Buffy, I guess it could be said I, along with a number of other FunTrivia friends who produce Bible quizzes, slayed you as the tables have been turned, and then some.

At the time of the writing of this quiz, the Bible -- the most read and most sold publication in the world -- holds a lead of more than 1,000 quizzes over Buffy. Deanh521, founder of FunTrivia teams the 'Bible Believers Brigade' as well as 'A Joyful Noise' made the following comment on our team message board on June 28, 2016: "At this point, the vampires have been defanged and poor Buffy has gone from a 300 quiz lead to a 1000 quiz deficit -- so we done good brother."

I salute FunTrivia Bible quiz authors Dean 521, Logcrawler and Ilona_Ritter for being alongside me as Buffy was slayed. A tip of the hat, as well, to AreleneRimmer and Rimrunner, as well as others, who wrote Bible quizzes in those early days.

I also want to salute FunTrivia for letting democracy rule. If you feel there are not enough quizzes on a given subject, all you have to do is roll up your sleeves and file quizzes. I am sure the editors would love to hear from you.
