Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts

Answer: Good Friday

Christians believe that Jesus died for the sins of all in God's all-inclusive glorious love plan. John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have (abundant) eternal life." - NIV Bible
2. Easter is preceded by a 40-day spiritual disciplining period of prayer, fasting and repentance. This season begins on Ash Wednesday and culminates with Easter Sunday. Please can you name the season?

Answer: Lent

Lent is a 40-weekday (except Sundays) period modeled on Jesus' 40-day fast in the desert. Holy Week is the last week of Lent or the week before Easter from Palm Sunday till Easter eve.
3. Which day of the week is Easter celebrated on in Eastern Christianity?

Answer: Sunday

Eastern Christian churches observe Lententide, during the six weeks prior to Palm Sunday with the fast continued all through the Holy Week of Easter till Easter eve. Easter is always on the following Sunday after Palm Sunday. The dates of Easter may differ in Eastern and Western Christianity. However for the years 2010, 2011, 2014, 2017, 2025, 2028, 2031 and 2034 they coincide.
4. The NIV Bible says Mary of Magdalene was the special person first to witness the Resurrected Christ. She however initially mistakes Him to be the gardener. What does the Bible inform us of that could perhaps be a reason for this?

Answer: There is mention of Jesus' tomb being in a garden

Mark 16:9 says that Jesus rose early on the first day of the week (Sunday), and first appeared to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had earlier driven seven demons. John 19:41-42 says that where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. Also it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was close, they kept Jesus there.

Relatedly Luke 8 says, "Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means."
5. In the NIV Bible the Resurrected Jesus says to which disciple, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."?

Answer: Thomas

Thomas was the 'show me' disciple. John 20:24-29 says, "Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, 'We have seen the Lord!' But he said to them, 'Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.' A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!' Then he said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.' Thomas said to him, 'My Lord and my God!' Then Jesus told him, 'Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.'"
6. In the NIV Bible the Resurrected Jesus gave His disciples the authority that if they forgive anyone's sins, their sins are forgiven (by God).

Answer: True

Jesus, before His assumption into Heaven, gave all authority to His disciples. John 20:21, "Again Jesus said, 'Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.' And with that he breathed on them and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone's sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.'"
7. In the NIV John 20:19 says, "On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked ..., Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'" Why were the doors locked?

Answer: In fear of the Jewish leaders

The disciples were fearful, having seen their Master forsaken even by God, (according to God's divine love plan) that maybe they were the next to be persecuted. John 20:19-23 says, "On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!' After he said this, he showed them his hands and side.

The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, 'Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.' And with that he breathed on them and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone's sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.'"
8. The New Living Translation says, "But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have (abundant) life by the power of his name." Which books of the Holy Bible are being referenced here?

Answer: Gospels

Christians believe that Jesus' lineage, birth, life, death and resurrection was the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy of the Messiah who would make peace with God and provide atonement for His people's sin in God's glorious all-inclusive love plan.

The word 'Gospel' translates 'Good News'. John 20:30, "The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you will have life by the power of his name".
9. In the NIV Bible Jesus says, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."

Answer: True

Jesus was completely obedient to God's will, purpose and plan in His life, death and resurrection on earth. Therefore He says in Matthew 28:16-20, "Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.

Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'"
10. In Bethany, what was the Resurrected Jesus' last act on earth concerning His disciples before He was taken up to heaven? (NIV Bible)

Answer: Blessing

While Jesus was blessing His disciples He ascended into Heaven to be seated at the right hand of God the Father(Mark 16:19). In Luke 24:50-53, "Then Jesus led them to Bethany, and lifting his hands to heaven, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up to heaven. So they worshiped him and then returned to Jerusalem filled with great joy. And they spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God."
