Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This apostle was one of the original twelve, and is often identified as also being named Nathaniel (or Nathanael). Which of these is he?

Answer: Bartholomew

Bartholomew's name appears in the Bible coupled with that of Philip in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, while in John the name of Nathaneal is linked with that of Philip. From this, it has been argued that they must be the same man, since the other eleven can be identified. He is named as one of the witnesses of the Ascension of Jesus to heaven.

Barrabas is the prisoner released instead of Jesus prior to His crucifixion, while Benjamin is from the Old Testament, being the youngest son of Jacob. Barnabas first appears in the Acts of the Apostles, accompanying Paul, and is described as one of the early disciples.
2. Following a warning Joseph received in a dream, he, Mary and the baby Jesus fled to which country?

Answer: Egypt

This event is described only in the Gospel of Matthew and follows the visit of the Magi, or wise men. They themselves had been warned not to return to Jerusalem, again in a dream. Matthew interprets the Holy Family's return from Egypt as fulfilling the Old Testament prophecy of Hosea, that God would call his son out of Egypt.
3. One of the miracles which occurs in the Bible involves Jesus himself, when he is seen by three of his apostles to be shining with light and to speak with Moses and Elijah. This episode is normally referred to by which name?

Answer: Transfiguration

The transfiguration is described in detail in three of the four Gospels - Matthew, Mark and Luke, and is also mentioned in 2 Peter. Three of the disciples witness the event, Peter, James and John, and it is further confirmation to them that Jesus is the Son of God.

As well as seeing Jesus surrounded by light, and Moses and Elijah, the disciples also hear the voice of God saying that Jesus is his Son, and that they should listen to him.
4. The Massacre of the Innocents was ordered by which man? Note - one name only; no qualifier.

Answer: Herod

The story of the Massacre of the Innocents - all baby boys aged two or under - was ordered by Herod the Great. He had been alerted to the birth of a new 'King of the Jews' by the Magi and it was Herod's decision to dispose of the 'competition' that prompted the Holy Family's flight from Herod's area. Matthew refers to the Old Testament in his account, tying the massacre to a prophesy made by Jeremiah.
5. Which of these New Testament figures was the subject of one of the miracles carried out by Jesus?

Answer: Lazarus

The miracle of Lazarus is described in the Gospel of John. Lazarus had died and been entombed for four days before Jesus's arrival at Bethany, where Lazarus lived. Jesus commanded Lazarus to come from his tomb, which he did, restored to life. The story of this miracle is often mentioned, as it contains the shortest verse of the King James version of the Bible, 'Jesus wept', which appears in John chapter 11, verse 35.
6. This biblical lady is described in the New Testament as the wife of Zechariah (Zacharias) and the mother of an important character in the story of Jesus. Who is she?

Answer: Elizabeth

Elizabeth and Zechariah are the parents of John the Baptist, and appear in the Gospel of Luke. The other gospels all make reference to John, and he is also mentioned in Acts of the Apostles. It is generally accepted that John baptised Jesus in the Jordan river, when God acknowledged Jesus as his Son for the first time.

Esther and Eve appear in the Old Testament. Eunice is from the New Testament, and is the mother of Timothy, the evangelist.
7. The shouts of praise which accompanied Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem are described by which of these names in Matthew chapter 21, verse 9 in most English translations, including both the King James and the New International versions?

Answer: Hosanna

The entry of Jesus into Jerusalem is commemorated on Palm Sunday, which falls on the Sunday one week before Easter Sunday. Jesus is described as riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, where he is greeted by the populace with great joy and the strewing of palm branches at his feet.

The event is described in all four Gospels. Matthew (21.9) describes the welcome as 'Hosanna to the Son of David' in the King James Version.
8. Meaning 'God is with us', what alternative name is used for Jesus? It was originally prophesied in the Book of Isaiah and quoted in the Gospel of Matthew. (There are two possible spellings, but only one works in the context of the quiz).

Answer: Emmanuel

The alternative spelling is Immanuel, with the name first appearing in the Old Testament of the Bible in the book of Isaiah. Matthew, in his Gospel, uses the prophecy of Isaiah to support the claim that Jesus was the Messiah. The name of Emmanuel/Immanuel appears only in the books of Isaiah and Matthew.
9. All these names appear in the Bible, but which one is the odd one out, being found only in the Old Testament and not the New Testament?

Answer: Miriam

Mary Magdalene is mentioned several times in the Gospels, with all four evangelists mentioning her. In particular, she is described as being the first person to see Jesus after his resurrection. Martha is one of the sisters of Lazarus (the other would also have fitted, being named Mary). The Archangel Michael appears in both the Old and New Testaments, with his winning battle against Satan described in the Book of Revelation.

Miriam is not a New Testament character, appearing in Exodus as the sister of Moses and Aaron.
10. If you now take the first letters of all your answers, you should find a name of great significance in the New Testament, particularly at Christmas time. What is it?

Answer: Bethlehem

Bethlehem is described as being where Jesus is born in both Luke and Matthew, the two Gospels which go into detail about His birth. Luke and Matthew between them give us the traditions of the Nativity - the shepherds, the stable and the visit of the Magi. The city of Bethlehem still exists in the twenty-first century, and is located about six miles from Jerusalem.
