Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. At one time, I was a great and mighty judge for Israel. I was the strongest man in the Bible and my strength came from a covenant I had with God. However my mistakes allowed me to be captured by my enemies and blinded. I would have been forgotten but I prayed to the Lord one last time for Him to allow me to defeat the Philistines. God gave me the victory by allowing me to crush them at a feast where they were mocking me. Who am I?

Answer: Samson

Samson lost his strength when his vow never to cut his hair was broken. He was captured and blinded by the Philistines, but God did not forget him. He asked God to help him avenge his eyesight and God heard him.

"And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life."
(Judges 16:28-30)

God allowed Samson in his blindness to have his greatest victory, and Samson did not die as a failure.
2. When I was five, my nurse received news that my father had been killed and dropped me when she was trying to run away. From that day on I was lame in both legs and I would have been forgotten had it not been for the kindness of my father towards David. David found me when he was king and showed me kindness because my father had been his best friend. Who am I?

Answer: Mephibosheth

Saul's son Jonathan had saved David's life on more than one occasion before David was king. Jonathan made a covenant with David as friends.

David was very grieved when Jonathan died and when he was king sought out Jonathan's family to show kindness to them. He found out that Jonathan had a son that was lame. Jonathan's son Mephibosheth had been injured by an accident when he was very young.

David called for Mephibosheth to come to the palace and out of honor for Jonathan provided for Mephibosheth and his needs.

"And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually."
(2 Samuel 9:7)
3. My name is Naaman, and I was captain of the host of the king of Syria. I was a great and mighty man, but I had leprosy. This disease is disfiguring and gradually causes the deterioration of nerves. One of the least expected people saw my condition and had compassion on me. Who told my wife that I could be healed by a prophet in Israel?

Answer: a Hebrew servant girl

This man's disease separated him from ever having a normal life even though he was a great hero for his country. In one of his battles he captured a Hebrew girl who became a servant to his wife. She had pity on him and was the one who brought his wife news that he could be healed by the prophet in Israel.

"Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honorable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valor, but he was a leper. And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman's wife. And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy. And one went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel."
(2 Kings 5:1-4)

When Naaman met Elisha he brought him many gifts but Elisha did not come out to meet him. Elisha told him to go wash in a muddy river. Naaman was a great man and did not want to do it. He was expecting Elisha to perform a great task. However his servant reminded him that if it had been some great thing Naaman would have done it, and this was a small thing. Naaman did as Elisha told him and God restored his body.

It all started though with the faith of a Hebrew girl that had compassion for him.
4. Leprosy was a disease that caused nerve damage and deformation to those who had it. It was a disease that was very contagious so lepers were often shunned from the rest of society. However, God used some lepers to save a city in Israel when it was being attacked by Syrians.

Answer: True

Samaria was the capital city of Israel and was being besieged by the Syrians. The people inside the city were starving and had no way to get food. Outside the city a group of lepers were also being affected by the siege. They were outcasts because of their disease. They decided that if they stayed where they were and did nothing, they would die. If they went to the city, they would die as well. So they went to the Syrian camp to surrender themselves but when they got there they discovered God had run the Syrians away. There was food, clothing, gold, and many things left behind that provided for their needs.

"Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household. So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were. And he called the porters; and they told it to the king's house within."
(2 Kings 7:9-11)

They went and told the city and as a result they saved the people. No one would have known about the food had it not been for a band of brave lepers.
5. I became one of the most well known blind men in the Bible. However I would have been permanently blind had I not been persistent in calling out to Jesus when he was passing by! People tried to get me to be quiet but I kept crying out louder "Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy upon me!" Finally Jesus brought me to him and healed my eyesight. Who am I?

Answer: Bartimaeus

Bartimaeus was begging for coins when the crowd Jesus was with passed by. He called out to Jesus but many people tried to keep him quiet. They didn't think Jesus had time for a blind beggar, but Bartimaeus was persistent and kept calling out to the one who could heal him. Jesus showed compassion for Bartimaeus and had him brought to him.

"And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way."
(Mark 10:49-52)

Bartimaeus received his sight and no longer had to be a beggar. He left everything he had and followed Jesus.
6. I was handicapped and for thirty-eight years tried to get healed at the pool of Bethesda. Whenever an angel came down and troubled the waters, whoever stepped in the water first was healed of their diseases. However I had no one to help me get to the water for my miracle. It was beginning to look hopeless when a man came up to me and asked me if I wanted to be made whole. Who was he?

Answer: Jesus

Jesus saw the man lying by the pool and asked him if he wanted to be healed. He wanted to be healed but did not understand that Jesus was willing to do more than help him in the water for the miracle he wanted.

"When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath."
(John 5:6-9)

Thanks to Jesus, after thirty-eight years the man got his miracle and it was more than he expected. He went away and did as Jesus said.
7. When my friends brought me to Jesus, I was a man who was sick of the palsy and couldn't walk. They were surprised along with many of the others that were in the crowd at Jesus' answer to me. Jesus often told people to do things when He healed them, but this time He had a different response when He healed me. What did Jesus tell me that made people accuse him of blasphemy?

Answer: "Thy sins be forgiven thee"

The man who was sick of the palsy was brought to Jesus by his friends, but they could not reach Jesus through the crowd. They tore the roof off the house and lowered their friend through the ceiling on his bed. However the response of Jesus was shocking to many. Instead of telling the man to rise up and walk first, Jesus told him his sins were forgiven.

"And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house."
(Matthew 9:2-6)

The man left healed and with his sins forgiven, showing the crowd that Jesus had the power to do both.
8. My handicap was not being lame, blind, deaf, or mute, but it affected my life. I was a woman who had tried everything. When I heard about Jesus I had faith that if I could only touch him I would be healed. I pushed through crowds and touched the hem of Jesus' garment. Jesus could have easily ignored me but he turned around when he felt something happen. What did Jesus tell me?

Answer: "Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace."

The woman with the issue of blood did not much from Jesus to get her healing. She had tried everything else from doctors, and in Biblical times her disease probably would have barred her from many places and people. She believed if she could just touch Jesus she would be healed, and she was. However Jesus said something when she was healed.

"And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace."
(Luke 8:43-48)

Jesus had been in a hurry that day to heal a ruler's daughter who had died. He could have easily walked away and ignored what had happened when the woman touched him in the crowd, but he turned around and blessed her. He showed he cared for her needs and recognized her faith.
9. I was lame from my mother's womb and each day I was carried to the gate outside of the temple to beg for coins. I was just asking for money, but I did not expect what happened when I met Peter and John. What happened after Peter told me, "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk"?

Answer: Peter took me by the hand and immediately my ankle bones received strength

This man definitely got a surprise that changed his life! He was just earning his living by begging by the temple, but Peter and John gave him something more than money.

"Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him."
(Acts 3:6-10)

Because Peter and John stopped and helped the lame man, the lame man's life was changed forever. He went running, leaping, and praising God in the temple, a place where he would never have been allowed to go inside with his handicap. People were astonished as the man worshiped God completely healed.
10. Isaiah prophesied the Lord would bring terrible judgment to the world, but he also encouraged the people that the Lord would save His people. True or false: He said The Lord would open the eyes of the blind, the lame man would leap, the mute would sing, and the earth would rejoice.

Answer: True

"Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert."
(Isaiah 35:4-6)

Isaiah knew God would not forget His people and encouraged them by prophesying that God would save even those who were weak and handicapped. That is, when God set up His kingdom for eternity he would heal all diseases and wipe away all tears for those He loves.
