Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Let's start with someone who found the way to paradise. He was told he'd make it to paradise, while he was dying, by Jesus himself. Who was this Biblical person?

Answer: No name is given

When Jesus was crucified there were two unnamed criminals crucified with him. While they were hanging on their crosses one of the criminals said "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!" But the other said "Don't you fear God, since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve.

But this man has done nothing wrong." Then he turned to Jesus and said "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." Then Jesus said "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise." This can be found in Luke 23.
2. Now let's meet someone who was a follower of God and was on his way to paradise but lost his ticket when he stopped following the Lord's commands. He was the first one to wear the crown when his nation wanted a king. Who is this person I'm describing?

Answer: Saul

Samuel anointed Saul king of Israel in 1 Samuel 10, after which the Spirit of God came on Saul and he started prophesying. Some time later God told Saul to attack the Amalekites and leave no living survivors. But Saul spared their king and the best of their livestock. Because of this God, rejected Saul as king and chose David to be king in his place when he died. Saul never made things right with God and kept doing evil until the day he died.

His story can be found in 1 Samuel 10-31.
3. Now we'll talk about someone who did evil in the eyes of the Lord his whole life and never found the way to paradise. This particular one was the last king of Israel before the Israelites were exiled into Assyria. What was his name?

Answer: Hoshea

According to 2 Kings 17, Hoshea was the last king of Israel and did evil in the eyes of the Lord like no king ever had before him. Because of this the Lord decided he'd had enough of Israel's wickedness, so he gave them into the hands of the Assyrians. According to 2 Kings 17:23, at the time the book of 2 Kings was written, the Israelites were still in captivity in Assyria.
4. Now let's talk about someone who found the way to paradise and went there without even dying! He even managed a hot ride to Heaven while a companion with a similar name was watching the whole time. Who is this I'm talking about?

Answer: Elijah

Elijah is probably most known for his contest with the prophets of Baal of Mount Carmel. He and those prophets both set up altars. The prophets of Baal prayed for Baal to set their altar ablaze but it didn't happen. Then Elijah had twelve buckets of water poured on his altar, soaking the whole thing. Then he prayed to God to set it on fire and immediately God sent fire from Heaven that not only burnt the offering but dried up all of the water as well. This can be found in 1 Kings 18.

When the time came for Elijah to be taken to Heaven, Elisha was with him and wouldn't leave him. So while they were walking together the Lord sent a chariot of fire to separate them and then Elijah was taken up in a whirlwind. Then Elisha went on without him. This can be found in 2 Kings 2.
5. This woman was not only lost to God but even killed several who were found. One person who was found prophesied that she would be food for the local canines. Her husband, who was king, was lost as well. Who is this woman?

Answer: Jezebel

Ahab was the king of Israel who was more evil than any others before him, and married a foreign woman named Jezebel who was just as evil. The beginning of 1 Kings 18 says that she killed several of the Lord's prophets. She wasn't able to kill Elijah and in 1 Kings 21 he prophesied that she would be eaten by dogs.

In 2 Kings 9 she was thrown out of a window and trampled by horses. Then dogs ate her flesh. When some men were ordered to get her body and bury her they only found her skull, hands and feet.
6. Now this man was only seven when he became king of his nation and he served God and did what was right. But then the chief priest, who apparently was the one keeping the king in line, died and then the king did evil. He mislaid his ticket to paradise for Asherah poles and idols and never found it again. Who is this I'm talking about?

Answer: Joash

Joash became king when he was seven and he was king for forty years. 2 Chronicles 24 says that he did what was right all the days of Jehoiada the priest. He restored the temple and took down the idols and Asherah poles. But when Jehoiada died, Joash listened to other influences and stared worshipping the idols and Asherah poles he had once done away with. God tried again and again to reach the king but he wouldn't listen to any prophets he sent.

He then sent Zechariah (not to be confused with the author of the book of Zechariah in the Bible), the son of Jehoiada, and he told the king that since he had forsaken God, God had forsaken him. Joash had him stoned to death. Shortly after this, Judah was attacked by Aram and they left Joash severely wounded.

Then the officials of Judah went in and killed him in his bed because of what he'd done to Zechariah. This can be found in 2 Chronicles 24.
7. This man persecuted Christians. But then Jesus appeared to him and he was turned around and got his ticket to paradise. He then went to several places and tried to help others get their tickets. Scripture shows that he did a lot of writing on the ways one should live in order to make it to paradise. Who am I talking about?

Answer: Paul

The first time we hear of Paul, at the time going by Saul, he was holding the coats of the people who were stoning Stephen to death. Shortly after this he went around imprisoning everyone who believed that Jesus is the Christ. Then one day, while he was going to Damascus, a bright light appeared and he heard the voice of Jesus asking why he was persecuting him. Jesus then told him to go to Damascus and then he would be told what to do. When the light went away he found that he was blind. So the men who were with him led him to the city. Then God sent Ananias to go heal him and fill him with the Holy Spirit. Paul then went around preaching the Gospel to Jews and Gentiles all over the world. This can be found in the book of Acts.

According to tradition, Paul is also credited with writing 13 books of the Bible, which is almost half of the New Testament.
8. When God offered this man anything he wanted, instead of asking for fame or riches, he asked for wisdom. Because of this God blessed him with wisdom, fame and uncountable riches. In his pride he disobeyed God and "mislaid" his ticket to paradise. But when he realized he was wrong and repented, God gave him mercy but punished his son instead. Who is this I'm describing?

Answer: Solomon

When David died he gave the throne to his son Solomon, and Solomon did what was right and lived for God. He built the temple in Jerusalem and did what God wanted. Then the Lord said that he would grant Solomon one wish and would give him whatever he asked for. Solomon asked for wisdom to do the right thing. Because of this God also blessed him with fame and fortune in addition to wisdom.

But Solomon decided to marry women who led him to worship false gods. Because of this, God decided he would punish Solomon by tearing his kingdom into two and giving the other part to another man. Solomon repented, so God decided that he would not do it while Solomon was living, but would do it when his son Rehoboam was king. Solomon's story can be found in 1 Kings 1-11.
9. One day an ancient king of Babylon was feasting and decided to use cups that had been taken from the temple in Jerusalem. Then he was prophesied against and that night the prophecy was fulfilled. He was slain and his throne was taken by a man from a foreign country. Who is this ancient king who never found paradise?

Answer: Belshazzar

When the Lord threw Nebuchadnezzar off the throne of Babylon, Belshazzar his son succeeded him as king. One day Belshazzar made a feast for a thousand people. He decided to use the cups from the temple in Jerusalem for drinking at the banquet. This angered God and led to him sending an angel to show his hand as he wrote on the wall of the banquet hall.

After failed attempts with the magicians and wise men, he sent for Daniel to interpret it. It said that God had numbered his days and his throne would be given to the Medes and the Persians. That night Babylon was attacked and Belshazzar was slain. Darius, a Mede, took the throne from Belshazzar.

This can be found in Daniel 5.
10. Now this man not only had his ticket to paradise, but wasn't going to give it away for anything! He even lost his children, his livestock and most of his possessions but still kept a strong hold on his ticket. Because he kept his ticket and wouldn't let it get away he was blessed with even more than he had before. Who is this man who went through many trials but still kept his ticket to paradise?

Answer: Job

According to the first chapter of the book of Job, Satan came to God and God brought up that Job was a man who was blameless and upright, feared God and shunned evil. Satan said that if Job went through some tough trials, he would give up on God. God then said that Satan could do anything to Job's possessions but he couldn't do anything to Job himself. So Satan took away all of Job's possessions and he even killed Job's children. Even these trials, Job didn't give up on God.

Then Satan went back to God and said that Job would give up on God if he went through enough pain. So, God said that Satan could inflict all kinds of diseases on Job but couldn't kill him. So Satan inflicted him with painful sores all over his body. Job lost all of his possessions and his family, except for his wife who told him to just curse God and die, and then was afflicted with painful sores.

But even after this Job stayed with God, and God blessed him with twice as much as he had before.
