Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. One of the first documented "meals" appeared in Genesis and involved eating from the forbidden "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil". Who was the first one documented in the Bible to eat from this tree?

Answer: Eve

"Genesis 3:6, KJV: And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." Some translations use the words "and then gave to her husband"; this translation is slightly vague, but it is generally accepted Eve was the first to eat.

It is not documented in Genesis 3 that the serpent had anything to do with eating the fruit. Eve told him (it?) that only this tree was forbidden to partake of, and the serpent stated that if she did eat of it, she would be knowledgeable of all good and evil, just like God.
2. One person in the Old Testament was so in need of a meal he gave up his birthright to his brother Jacob for a bowl of lentil stew. Who was this famished man?

Answer: Esau

Esau stated in Genesis 25, "Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?" and Jacob made him swear to it that the birthright change hands. Jacob would later trick his father, Isaac, into blessing him instead of the firstborn Esau, which essentially was a last will and testament of all of his father's possessions.
3. In Exodus, an important Jewish meal, Passover, was first observed. In addition to eating unleavened bread, the Jews ate the meat of an animal whose blood was smeared on the doors as a signal for the angel of death to "pass over" their homes. What animal was this the Jews had for a meal?

Answer: Lamb

"Exodus 12:5-6, KJV: Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats. And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening." Those who did not perform this ritual witnessed their firstborn perishing.
4. The prophet Elijah fled the evil hand of King Ahab by hiding in the wilderness along a small brook. God fed him daily meals in the wilderness through the use of what animal?

Answer: Ravens

"I Kings 17, 5-6, KJV: So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook."

Later in the same chapter, Elijah would be summoned by God to take shelter with a widow, and through her generosity, Elijah and God blessed her with unending grain and oil to cook with, as her cupboard was bare upon Elijah's arrival.
5. During an Old Testament incident of a meal between the sons and daughters of one particular man, the house collapsed in on them killing all of the siblings. One hopes that the father had the patience of... oh, I uh, I guess he did! Who was this long suffering man?

Answer: Job

"Job 1:18b-19, KJV: ...there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house. And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee."

This was one of several things to happen to Job in a short span of time; it is no wonder the phrase "Patience of Job" is still in our vernacular today.
6. When the Jews defeated Haman and his armies, Esther and Mordecai held a large meal to celebrate. They made it an annual event, a holiday that still appears on the Jewish calendar. What is this holiday?

Answer: Purim

"Esther 9:26, KJV: Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur." Purim is celebrated now on the 14th day of the month of Adar in the Hebrew calendar, and the 15th day instead in some areas, most notably Jerusalem, as the towns "within protective walls" celebrated a day later.
7. While having a great feast with many of his constituents, this king witnessed the prophecy of the end of his kingdom through a large hand writing the foreshadowing on the wall. Who was this king who witnessed God's hand, literally, at work?

Answer: Belshazzar

"Daniel 5:5, KJV: In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the king's palace, and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote." Belshazzar, on the very night he got the words of God translated, was dead by morning.

William Walton, a 20th C. composer, wrote a cantata entitled "Belshazzar's Feast", detailing the happenings of this event. It remains a very popular choral piece to this day.
8. In a lavish meal, put on by King Herod, his daughter Salome danced for him. As a result of Salome's reward for her performance, who met their untimely demise?

Answer: John the Baptist

"Mark 6: 22,24, KJV: And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist." Herod could not go back on his word, so he ordered the beheading of John, and served his head to the girl on a platter.

The phrase "head on a platter" comes from this event in the Bible.
9. During one of Jesus' sessions preaching to the masses, he fed 5,000 of his followers with only a small amount of loaves of bread, and fish. Adding the amount the New Testament book of John says there were of each, how many combined loaves and fishes did Jesus start with?

Answer: Seven

"John 6:9-10, KJV: There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand."

Matthew also has a similar story where Jesus fed four thousand people with seven loaves of bread and "a few fishes". The number of fishes is not specific enough to create a math problem with.
10. Jesus and his disciples would celebrate Passover prior to Jesus' crucifixion, but at the end they had bread and wine together. According to Matthew 26, as he served them to his disciples, what did Jesus refer to these two items as?

Answer: His body and blood

"Matthew 26:26-29, KJV: And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it, For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom." Paul's letter to the Corinthians is the first mention of the Last Supper as a sacrament, one that many Christians still observe regularly today.

The Last Supper, as this event is most commonly called today, was immortalized on canvas by Leonardo DaVinci. However, it is highly unlikely all the disciples sat on the same side of the table, as DaVinci portrayed.
