Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The 13th chapter of Matthew contains a number of parables by Jesus and in the 35th verse He quotes Scripture from the Hebrew Bible: "I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world." In what book of the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible, would you find similar words?

Answer: Psalms

The quote in question comes from Psalm 78:2. To put the verse in context, here's how Psalm 78:1-4 reads in the NKJV:
"Give ear, O my people, to my law;
Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings of old,
Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children,
Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done."

In the 13th chapter of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as telling a number of parables and also giving an explanation about some of them. According to subheads in the NKJV Study Bible, the parables are titled The Parable of the Sower, The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares, The Parable of the Mustard Seed, The Parable of the Leaven, The Parable of the Hidden Treasure, The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price and The Parable of the Dragnet.
2. Mark 7:1-13 tells of the Pharisees criticizing Jesus for having disciples who did not walk according to the tradition of the elders and ate bread with 'unwashed' hands. Jesus rebuked them in verses 6 and 7 by quoting Old Testament Scripture: "This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." In what book in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible, would you find such a quote?

Answer: Isaiah

The correct answer is Isaiah with the verse coming from Chapter 29, Verse 13. To put things in context, here how Isaiah 29:13-14, reads in the NKJV:
"Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips,
But have removed their hearts far from Me,
And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work
Among this people,
A marvelous work and a wonder;
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."

In regards to the charge by the Pharisees about Christ's disciples not washing their hands before eating bread, it should be pointed out it had nothing to do with sanitary conditions. What the Pharisees were upset about was the fact the disciples did not ceremonially wash their hands, as per their customs.

In regards to ceremonial washing, Mark 1-4 offers these details: "Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches."
3. Luke 3:1-6 tells of John the Baptist "preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins" with verse 6 containing this reference to the Old Testament: "And all flesh shall see the salvation of God." In what book of the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English NKJV Bible, do you find similar words?

Answer: Isaiah

The correct answer is Isaiah with the quote coming from the 40th chapter and the fifth verse.

To put things in context, Isaiah 40:3-5, in the NKJV, states:
The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
"Prepare the way of the LORD;
Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough places smooth;
The glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

According to Scripture, John wore clothes made of camel hair and a leather belt and his diet consisted largely of locusts and wild honey. Matthew 3:4 and Mark 1:6 provide these highly unusual details about John, regarded by some Christians as the last of the Old Testament prophets. John's purpose was to prepare the way for Jesus, whom he described as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29). In addition to his unusual dress, John never seemed to be at a loss for words when it came to the Pharisees and the Sadducees. In Matthew 3:7, for example, he called them a "brood of vipers."
4. John 12:15 is part of a discourse that tells of Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem with the verse containing these words from the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English NKJV Bible: "Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey's colt." In what book do the words originally appear?

Answer: Zechariah

The Old Testament quote comes from Zechariah 9:9. The verse, in the NKJV, states:
"Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey."

John, when writing his gospel, includes details about Christ entering Jerusalem on a donkey, stating it is a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. It would be a triumphant entry for Jesus with a "great multitude" greeting Him, as per John 12:1. However, the celebration would be short lived, because He would be betrayed by Judas Iscariot, arrested, tortured and crucified, according to Scripture. The 20th chapter of John goes on to tell of Christ's resurrection from the dead and from this point on, the world would never be the same.
5. Acts 8:32 tells of an Ethiopian eunuch sitting with Philip, while riding in a chariot, and reading the following verse from the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth." In what book do the words originally appear?

Answer: Isaiah

The verse originally appeared in Isaiah 53:7. To put things in context, here's how Isaiah 53:4-10, reads in the NKJV:
"Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
And they made His grave with the wicked --
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand."

The eighth chapter of Acts goes on to report about Philip the Evangelist explaining the meaning of the passage in Isaiah to the Ethiopian eunuch, who would become the first believer in Africa of a resurrected Jesus Christ.
6. In Romans 9:15 (NKJV), Paul quotes Scripture from the Hebrew Bible, writing: "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion." In what Old Testament book does the quote come from?

Answer: Exodus

The verse comes from Exodus 33:19, a Scripture telling of the LORD speaking to Moses. The conversation took place shortly after Moses had met with the LORD on Mount Sinai and when he returned to the Israelite camp, he was horrified to see the people worshiping a golden calf.
7. Paul, in writing his first book to members of the early church at Corinth, quoted Scripture from the Hebrew Bible. In 1 Corinthians 1:31, Paul writes: "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord." What book in the Old Testament does the statement come from?

Answer: Jeremiah

The verse in question comes from Jeremiah 9:24. To put the verse in context, here's how Jeremiah 9:23-24 reads in the NKJV:
"'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,' says the LORD."

Notes in the NKJV Study Bible state Corinth was an important city in ancient Greece, but the church was facing serious problems, largely due to sexual immorality and factions that dragged each other into court. It was with this background that Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, wrote 1 Corinthians.
8. In writing his epistle to the Galatians, Paul made reference to Scripture in the Hebrew Bible, writing in the eighth verse of the third chapter: "And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, 'In you all the nations shall be blessed.'" In what book in the Old Testament do you find a statement similar to 'In you all the nations shall be blessed'?

Answer: Genesis

The verse in Galatians 3:8 is based on Genesis 12:3. In the NKJV Bible, Genesis 12:3 states:
"I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

The statement was made by the LORD to Abram, who would later become known as Abraham. Similar statements can be found in Genesis 18:18; 22:18; 26:4 and 28:14.
9. Ephesians 4:8 contains these words which reference the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men." In what book in the Old Testament do you find a similar statement?

Answer: Psalms

The statement comes from Psalm 68:18 which states in the NKJV:
"You have ascended on high,
You have led captivity captive;
You have received gifts among men,
Even from the rebellious,
That the LORD God might dwell there."

Ephesians was written by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, and addressed to members of the early church at Ephesus. According to notes in the NKJV Study Bible, Ephesus was capital of the Roman province of Asia and is now part of present day Turkey.
10. 2 Peter 2:22 contains these words that originally appeared in the Hebrew Bible, or the Old Testament of the English Bible: "A dog returns to his own vomit." In what Old Testament book do you find the statement?

Answer: Proverbs

The statement comes from Proverbs 26:11. Peter quoted the verse while warning members of the early church against false teachers.

To put Peter's statement in context, here's how 2 Peter 2:18-22 reads in the NKJV: "For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: 'A dog returns to his own vomit,' and, 'a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.'"
