Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey." Makes you kind of hungry, doesn't it? In what book of the Bible would you find this verse, describing the land that God had chosen for His people to dwell in?

Answer: Deuteronomy

We find this descriptive in Deuteronomy 8:8. The next two verses are written from God's perspective, at least as Moses presents them.

"A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee."
2. Don't say I didn't warn you... Be careful here... Okay, fair warning given; here goes. The prophet Elijah was once emotionally and physically exhausted, to the point of depression and he even expressed a wish to die! He was given food to sustain him, however, from an unlikely source, according to I Kings 19:5-8. How was the sustenance provided?

Answer: by an angel

Uh-oh! If you said he was fed by ravens, you would be correct, except for one tiny detail. That had already occurred previously. On this occasion, an angel provided him food and basically told him to get some rest.

The text of I Kings 19:5-8 reads in the King James Version this way:

"And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God."

Now, that was some POWERFUL food to keep Elijah sustained for forty more days and nights!
3. Jesus cooked at least one meal for his disciples to eat.

Answer: True

According to John 21:4-13 that is exactly what Jesus did. Granted, it was not an elaborate party, nor was it even indoors, but it was a meal for them to eat. Read on...

"But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.

Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead."

(King James Version)
4. According to ancient Jewish custom and law, a person was considered to be defiled for a period of time (usually 7 days), if they had come into contact with a dead body. Some men once asked Moses if they could observe the Passover meal since they were currently in the 'defiled' category. What did he tell them, as Numbers 9:6-12 reveals?

Answer: that they should keep the observance

Perhaps the men had been needed to bury someone, or perhaps they had prepared the body for burial; the scripture isn't clear as to how they became defiled.
When they asked Moses about the matter, he told the men to wait in place while he inquired to the Lord on their behalf. He came back and relayed to them the full details as found below: (King James Version)

"And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the children of Israel?
And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the LORD will command concerning you.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the LORD. The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the LORD in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land."
5. Jesus was engaged in healing sick people once, and a whole bunch of people were gathered together as they followed along with him. His disciples became concerned for their welfare as well, and suggested that Jesus send them away to buy food for themselves, as it was growing dark. What did Jesus tell his disciples, according to the 14th chapter of Matthew? (King James Version)

Answer: "They need not depart; give ye them to eat."

This was not the only instance in which Jesus fed a multitude of folks on a "shoestring budget", but the account we see in Matthew 14:15-21 tells us;

"And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
But Jesus said unto them, THEY NEED NOT DEPART; GIVE YE THEM TO EAT.

And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children."
6. A young man named Eutychus was once raised from the dead by the apostle Paul. Eutychus had fallen asleep in an third-story window, and had fallen to his death. Paul resurrected him and all those present rejoiced. What festive meal had been observed less than two weeks prior to Eutychus falling (see Acts 20:6-12)?

Answer: Passover

Passover is sometimes referred to as 'the days of unleavened bread'. In this text in Acts 20 we read:

"And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

And upon the first day of the week, when THE DISCIPLES CAME TOGETHER TO BREAK BREAD, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.

(It is also a note of interest that after Paul had confirmed the life of Eutychus, that he again broke bread before leaving the company of those in Troas.)
7. Did the apostle Paul say that eating foods that had previously been offered to idols was an acceptable action, according to 1 Corinthians 8?

Answer: yes, but with stipulations

In what might be termed typical "Paul-ese" (that is, a legalistic terminology), Paul seems to say in the 8th chapter of 1 Corinthians, that:

a) it really didn't matter, because idol gods aren't REALLY 'gods' anyway, and;

b) that if someone was offended by the idea of others engaging in eating such things, that he would rather not be offensive to their sensibilities and would refrain from doing so.
8. In which book of the Bible can one find reference to a particular tree that bears 12 types of fruit?

Answer: Revelation

According to Revelation 22:1-2, John's vision of New Jerusalem includes this allusion to the tree of life - "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."

Some believe that this tree of life is the same one that had been located in the garden of Eden, in the book of Genesis, and many of those also believe that this "tree" represents Jesus.
9. One of the Old Testament patriarchs enjoyed venison or deer meat that his son went out hunting for. What was this son's name, who after undergoing a name change, had a new name meaning "red"?

Answer: Esau/Edom

Esau/Edom liked to hunt, as he was more of an avid outdoorsman, as opposed to his twin brother, Jacob who was more of a home-body. Their father, Isaac, apparently enjoyed his venison because in Genesis 27:1-4 Isaac had the following conversation with his son Esau (also known as Edom):

"And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I. And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death: Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison; And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die."
10. A baker serving time in prison? What? When Joseph, one of Jacob's sons was imprisoned in Egypt, a baker and a butler were "doing time" with him. Each of these men had managed to offend the Pharaoh and they both had dreams concerning foods; dreams which Joseph later interpreted for them. Can you tell me what types of food they dreamed of, according to the King James Version of Genesis 40?

Answer: grapes and bakemeats

The butler dreamed of grapes, and as the official wine-taster for the Pharaoh, his dream dealt with pressing the grapes into the ruler's chalice or wine cup. The baker dreamed of bakemeats, and as a chef, would have been responsible for the preparation of such for the king, or Pharaoh of Egypt. Unfortunately for him, while Joseph's interpretation of the butler's dream had a positive statement, i.e. he would be released shortly; the baker's dream was interpreted more ominously. According to Joseph, he would be dead in three days' time.

Sure enough, in three days, the butler was set free, but the baker was hanged.
