Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The name of what Biblical person can be formed using the chemical symbols of Calcium, Indium?

Answer: Cain

Cain was the oldest son of Adam and Eve and was therefore the first person to be born through childbirth. Cain gave fruit as an offering to God. However, God was more pleased with Abel's offering (portions from some of Abel's flock). Cain was upset with God and killed Abel. Cain was banished from the land and lived his life in a place called Nod (located near Eden).
The story of Cain and Abel can be found in Genesis 4:1-16.
2. Which Biblical person can be made using the chemical symbols for Einsteinium, Gold?

Answer: Esau

Esau was the twin brother of Jacob and the son of Isaac and Rebekah. Esau wished to have some stew, so he sold Jacob his birthright in exchange for the stew. Later in life, when Isaac could hardly see, Jacob tricked Isaac into believing that he was Esau. Isaac gave Jacob the blessing that was meant for Esau, since Esau was the firstborn. Esau had a grudge against Jacob because of this for a long time, but they eventually made up.
Esau's story can be found in Genesis 25:27-34, 27:1-40, and 33.
3. The name of what Biblical person can be formed using the chemical symbols of Hydrogen, Silver, Argon?

Answer: Hagar

Hagar was the slave to Sarah, Abraham's wife. Sarah did not have any children but wished to have some, so she told Hagar to sleep with Abraham. Hagar did so and gave birth to a son, Ishmael. According to the laws of that time, the child of a slave wouldn't belong to the slave but rather to the owners of the slave. Therefore, Ishmael belonged to Sarah and Abraham. Sarah would later give birth to a son of her own, Isaac.
The story of Hagar can be found in Genesis 16.
4. Which Biblical person can be made using the chemical symbols for Molybdenum, Selenium, Sulfur?

Answer: Moses

As a baby, Moses was put in a basket and sent floating in the Nile River until the pharaoh's daughter found him. Moses was a Jew who led his fellow Jews out of slavery in Egypt and into the Promised Land (although Moses himself would not enter). Although Moses was not a good speaker, God helped him convince the pharaoh to let the Jews go. After the plague of the firstborn, the pharaoh let the Jews go.
Moses leading his people from Egypt can be found from Exodus 12:31 all the way to the end of Exodus 14.
5. The name of what Biblical person can be formed using the chemical symbols of Silicon, Molybdenum, Nitrogen?

Answer: Simon

Simon the Zealot was one of the twelve disciples. As a disciple, Jesus gave him the ability to heal diseases and cast out evil spirits. Little else is known about him.
Another Simon, who was also a disciple, is Simon Peter (better known as Peter, the man who denied Jesus three times).
What little is known about Simon the Zealot can be found in Matthew 10:4 and Acts 1:13.
6. Which Biblical person can be made using the chemical symbols for Silicon, Lanthanum, Sulfur?

Answer: Silas

After a disagreement with Barnabas, Paul decided to have Silas join him on his missionary journeys. Silas was with Paul when they were thrown into jail in Philippi. They escaped when there was an earthquake that broke their chains. Silas would travel with Paul to Thessalonica and Berea. It was at Berea that Silas and Timothy (another traveling partner) decided to stay behind.
Silas's journey with Paul can be found in Acts 15:22-41, Acts 16, and Acts 17:1-15.
7. The name of what Biblical person can be formed using the chemical symbols of Rhenium, Uranium, Beryllium, Nitrogen?

Answer: Reuben

Reuben was the oldest of Jacob's sons and the founder of the tribe of Reuben. When his brothers were planning to kill Joseph, Reuben tried to stop them. The brothers were convinced and decided to throw him in a well. When Reuben and his brothers went to Egypt to get help because of a famine in their land, it was Reuben who believed the troubles they faced in Egypt were some sort of divine punishment for what they had done to Joseph.
Information about Reuben can be found sporadically from Genesis 37 to 49.
8. Which Biblical person can be made using the chemical symbols for Barium, Thorium, Sulfur, Helium, Barium?

Answer: Bathsheba

Bathsheba was the wife of Uriah who committed adultery with David. Uriah was sent by David to go fight in a war where the fighting was intense in hopes that Uriah would die (which he did). David did this because Uriah refused to sleep with Bathsheba, thinking it would be disloyal to his men. Bathsheba became David's wife and give birth to Solomon, who would succeed David as ruler of Israel and Judah. David eventually realized what he did was wrong and confessed this to God, who forgave him. The story of David and Bathsheba can be found in 2 Samuel 11. David confessing his sins is found in 2 Samuel 12 and again in Psalm 51.
9. The name of what Biblical person can be formed using the chemical symbols of Barium, Radium, Boron, Barium, Sulfur?

Answer: Barabbas

Barabbas was a murderer who lived around the same time that Jesus did. On Passover, Pontius Pilate brought forth both Barabbas and Jesus, both of whom were to be crucified. In accordance with custom, on Passover, the crowd could choose to commute one person's sentence. The crowd chose Barabbas over Jesus.
Barabbas can be found in Matthew 27:15-26, Mark 15:7-15, Luke 23:18-25, and John 18:40.
10. Which Biblical person can be made using the chemical symbols for Sulfur, Tellurium, Phosphorus, Helium, Nitrogen?

Answer: Stephen

The disciples decided to select seven men appointed as deacon to serve the church. After a disagreement, Stephen was falsely accused of speaking lies about Moses and about God. Prior to dying, he told the crowd that he could see heaven, and he could see Jesus sitting at the right hand of God. Stephen prayed for the men who were about to kill him. He was eventually stoned to death and became the first Christian martyr.
Stephen's story can be found in Acts 6 and 7.
