Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Most certainly you have heard this before: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." It is often one of the first verses a person memorizes. Where is it found in the Bible?

Answer: John 3:16

Besides many SuperBowl appearances, this verse has been translated into twenty-seven different languages in the Gideon Bible.
2. "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalm 133:1 was written by a King. Which one?

Answer: David

Psalm 72 begins with the introductory words, "A Psalm of Solomon" but it is traditionally believed to be written by David as a prayer for his son.

Hezekiah did not write any of the Psalms recorded in the New King James Bible but he did write ten psalms of his own. He combined these with five of King David's psalms into a book after his life was miraculously spared. Read the story in Isaiah Chapter 38.

Moses was not considered a king, but a deliverer of Israel. Psalm 90 is introduced with the words, "A Prayer of Moses the man of God". It is a very popular belief that Psalm 91 was also written by Moses. It is a Talmudic tradition to credit an untitled psalm to the previous psalm's author, which may contribute to this widely held belief.
3. "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." This is an important verse to both the Christian and Jew. Where is it found in the Bible?

Answer: Deuteronomy 6:5

Deuteronomy 6:4 - "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!" - through Deuteronomy 6:9 - "You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." - is called 'The watchword of Israel' or The Shema. This group of verses is well loved by Christians also. Especially favored is verse 7: "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."

Jesus calls this the "first and great commandment" in Matthew 22:37.
4. We know that it is important to study the Word of God. "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Where is this verse found in the Bible?

Answer: 2 Timothy 2:15

This verse is the 'inspiration' verse for a children's Bible club called AWANA's. Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
AWANA began in 1950 as a youth program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago, Illinois.
More than 11,400 American churches and 3,800 churches overseas run the AWANA program. Interested? Find out more at awana.org
5. "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." These beautiful words are from which Psalm?

Answer: 119

Psalm 9 two verses for each of the twenty-two Hebrew consonants
Psalm 10 two verses each
Psalm 25 one verse each
Psalm 34 one verse each
Psalm 37 two verses each
Psalm 111 half verse each

In Psalm 119 there are eight verses for each of the twenty-two Hebrew letters for a total of 176 verses.

In the time of Jesus, this was the first section of scripture that young people memorized. Other well known verses from this chapter include: "Your word have I hidden in mine heart, that I might not sin against You." (Verse 11)

"Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law." (Verse 18)

"For ever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven." (Verse 89)

"Oh how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day." (Verse 97)
6. "I can do all things through Christ who ______________ me." Phillipians 4:13 (NKJV)

Answer: strengthens

Paul is thought to have written Philippians during the two years when he was "in bonds" in Rome (Philippians 1:7-13), traditionally believed to be in late 61 or early 62 AD. This is also where he wrote the following verse. "Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say rejoice!" (Phillipians 4:4)
7. "I will sing to the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!" (Exodus 15:1) Who sang this song in that particular verse?

Answer: Moses and the children of Israel

This song was sung after the Israelites had walked on dry land through the middle of the parted Red Sea but the pursuing Egyptians were drowned by the waters rushing back to their place. This mighty miracle occurred on the heels of the ten plagues in Egypt that persuaded Pharaoh to let the Israelites go.

"Moses and the children of Israel" began their song of praise with this verse, Exodus 15:1. In verse 21 of the same chapter, Miriam the prophetess, answered them: "Sing to the LORD for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!" All the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
The plagues are found in Exodus 7 through Exodus 12. The parting of the Red Sea is in Exodus 14.
8. "For ____________ is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)

Ephesians 6:13-17 speaks of the 'armor of God'. Verse 17 also calls the word of God, the sword of the Spirit.
9. Jesus answered Satan's demand that He turn stones into bread in Matthew 4:4 by saying, "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God". From which Old Testament book was Jesus quoting?

Answer: Deuteronomy

After His baptism, Jesus was led into the wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil. The three temptations Satan thought would cause Jesus to sin were countered by Jesus with the words, "It is written". This particular verse that Jesus quoted from is Deuteronomy 8:3. "So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD."
10. Often misquoted as 'the lion and the lamb', where is the following verse found? "...'The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,' says the LORD."

1 Peter 5:8 - "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour."
11. "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Who said this?

Answer: Paul

Paul said this in the book of Romans - Chapter 12:2. Verses 1 and 2 are both often quoted. "I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
12. "The joy of the Lord is my strength." Which book of the Bible is this verse found in?

Answer: Nehemiah

It is often thought that the 'joyful' verses are in the New Testament. Nehemiah spoke these words to the people because they wept when they heard the words of the Law. (Neh. 8:9)
13. "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 (NKJV) What verse follows this?

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16 (but you knew that!)
14. "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD." Where is this found?

Answer: Malachi

Malachi 4:4-6 (The last three verses of the Old Testament): "Remember the law of Moses, my servant, which I commanded Him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary has this to say about these verses, "Here is a solemn conclusion, not only of this prophecy, but of the Old Testament. Conscience bids us remember the law. Though we have not prophets, yet, as long as we have Bibles, we may keep up our communion with God."
