Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. According to John 20:11-18, who was the first person to see Christ after His resurrection?

Answer: Mary Magdalene

The first person to see Christ after His resurrection was Mary Magdalene, as per John 20:11-18. According to Scripture, Mary went to Christ's tomb early on Sunday morning "while it was still dark" and to her amazement the stone had been rolled away from the tomb.

Scripture states Mary ran to inform Peter and John, two of the original Twelve Disciples, about what she saw. Peter and John raced to the tomb and when they looked in they saw nothing inside, except linen cloths lying there. The two disciples then returned to their houses.

After Peter and John had departed, the passage states Mary Magdalene stood outside the tomb weeping and when she looked inside, she saw two angels in white who asked her why she was weeping.

The passage states Mary told the angels she was weeping because, "they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." After saying this, Mary turned around and saw a person who she thought was the gardener. The supposed gardener, similar to the two angels, asked her why she was weeping. In response, Mary said, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away."

When the gardener said to her "Mary!" it was then she realized she was actually talking to the resurrected Christ.

The passage goes on to tell of Christ instructing Mary to tell the disciples about His resurrection.
2. The resurrected Christ appeared before His disciples on different occasions. Luke 24:36-43 and John 20:19-24, for example, tell of Him appearing before ten of the original Twelve Disciples. In the two accounts, what two disciples were not in attendance when Christ appeared?

Answer: Thomas and Judas Iscariot

When Jesus appeared before the disciples in Luke 24:36-43 and John 20:19-24, the two disciples not present were Thomas and Judas Iscariot, who had committed suicide a few days before. No reason is given for Thomas' absenteeism but he was well known for scoffing at reports Christ had risen from the dead. Some scholars believe he had lost all interest in being a follower of Christ and decided not to join the other disciples at the time.

According to Luke 24:36, Christ miraculously showed up in the midst of the disciples and said, "Peace to you." The passage tells of the disciples being "terrified and frightened", thinking they had seen a spirit. However, when Christ showed the disciples the crucifixion wounds in His hand and His feet, they became convinced Jesus had miraculously risen from the dead.
3. Although little in the way of details are given, Luke 24:34 reports the resurrected Christ made a miraculous appearance before Simon, also known as Peter, while he was alone.

Answer: True

True. Little in the way of details are given, but the literal reading of Luke 24:34 indicates the resurrected Christ appeared before Peter while he was alone. The verse quotes two people who encountered Christ while they were walking on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus.

The verse, in the NKJV, quotes the two people as saying: "The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!"

Peter, who was also known as Simon, denied he even knew Christ on three different occasions just prior to the crucifixion.
4. My favorite account of the resurrected Christ making a miraculous appearance is found in John 20:24-29. What doubting disciple finally became convinced reports of a resurrected Christ were true?

Answer: Thomas

Thomas is known for scoffing at reports of others saying they had seen the resurrected Christ. In fact, Thomas is quoted as saying he would not believe the reports until he was able to put his fingers in the wounds of Christ's hands and put his hand into the massive wound on Christ's side where a Roman soldier thrust a spear into Him while He was being crucified.

John 20:24-29 tells of the eleven remaining disciples assembled in a locked room when Christ miraculously appeared in their midst. It must have been priceless to see the look of amazement -- and no doubt shame -- on Thomas' face when he saw Jesus appear in the room.

The passage tells of Christ looking at Thomas and instructing the once doubtful disciple to, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side."

It was at this point, Thomas realized he had irrefutable evidence that Christ had indeed risen from the dead. Thomas then uttered five of the most important words in the Bible when it comes to proving the divinity of Christ: "My Lord and my God!"

In response, Jesus said: "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

In other words, Jesus is saying the millions of Christians in today's highly secularized world are blessed because they have believed even though they did not have the privilege of examining His wounds like Thomas did.
5. Just prior to His ascension to heaven, Scripture states the eleven remaining disciples were on hand to witness the miraculous event. Where did the disciples witness the ascension of Christ? (Luke 24:50)

Answer: Bethany

The ascension of Christ took took place in Bethany, as per Luke 24:50-53. Witnessing the ascension were the eleven remaining members of the original Twelve Disciples. (Judas Iscariot had committed suicide and Matthias was not yet named as his replacement.)

The passage states Christ led the disciples to Bethany where He blessed them and then miraculously parted from them, being "carried up into heaven." The passage goes on to tell of the disciples worshipping Him and returning to Jerusalem "with great joy".

Bethany was about two miles from Jerusalem, as per John 11:18.
6. Luke 24:13-35 tells of the resurrected Christ miraculously appearing to two people who were walking on the road to Emmaus. One of the two pedestrians is named. Can you name him/her?

Answer: Cleopas

Luke 24:13-35 tells of two people walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus when Christ suddenly appeared alongside them, even though they did not initially recognize Him. One of the two pedestrians was Cleopas but no name is given for the second person.

Scripture tells of the two people inviting Christ into their house and while they were breaking bread their eyes "were opened and they knew Him." It was at this point Christ miraculously vanished from their sight.
7. Yet another miraculous appearance of the resurrected Christ is recorded in John 21:1-14. The passage tells of Christ appearing to the disciples who were fishing on the Sea of Galilee. How many of the original Twelve Disciples saw Christ on this occasion?

Answer: 7

Seven disciples were fishing on the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias, when the resurrected Christ miraculously appeared on the shore. Five of the seven disciples are named. John 21:1-2 in the NKJV explains things this way: "After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together."

The passage goes on to tell of the disciples fishing all night and not catching anything. The disciples saw a man on the shore but did not realize it was Jesus until later. Scripture states Jesus told them to cast the net on the right side of the boat and when they did they were not able to draw it in "because of the multitude of fish."

It was at this point John, identified in the Gospel of John as 'the disciple Jesus loved', pointed out to Peter it was Christ who was on the shore. Immediately, Peter plunged into the water to go to Jesus while the other disciples followed in their boat.

While on shore, Scripture tells of the seven disciples having breakfast with Jesus.

According to the passage, it was the third time Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after His resurrection.
8. According to 1 Corinthians 15:6, how many people did the resurrected Christ appear to on one occasion?

Answer: More than 500

According to 1 Corinthians 15:6, Christ appeared on at least one occasion to more than five hundred brethren. Paul, the writer of 1 Corinthians, states in the verse the majority of the more than five hundred people who saw Christ were still alive at the time. However, no additional details are given.

The book of 1 Corinthians was addressed to members of the early church at Corinth, a city in Greece. 1 Corinthians 15:6 is part of a passage in which Paul assures the Corinthians their faith in Jesus Christ was based on rock-solid historical fact.
9. The resurrected Christ also appeared before James and then to all the apostles, as per 1 Corinthians 15:7.

Answer: True

According to 1 Corinthians 15:7, the resurrected Christ appeared before James and then all the apostles. However, details are not given as to exactly who James was in this case.

There are different possibilities. One of the original Twelve Disciples was called James, the son of Zebedee. Some believe the verse is talking about the James who is described as a "brother" of Jesus in Matthew 13:55. However, James was a common name in Biblical times opening up the possibility the person in question was a follower of Jesus, but not necessarily on the front line like the disciples.
10. A famous appearance of the resurrected Christ involves Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles. According to Scripture, Paul encountered Jesus on the road to Damascus and ended up being temporarily blinded by a brilliant light. For how long was Paul rendered blind? (Acts 9:9)

Answer: 3 days

According to Acts 9:9, Paul, who was known as Saul at the time, was blind for three days after the resurrected Christ appeared to him on the road to Damascus. The verse states Paul didn't eat or drink during the three days, indicating he was deeply shaken by the experience.

He regained his sight after Ananias received divine instructions to visit Paul, who had taken refuge at the home of a man called Judas on Straight Street. Scripture tells of Ananias laying his hands on Paul and proclaiming, "... the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Immediately scales fell from Paul's eyes and he was miraculously able to see.

Scripture states Paul saw a blinding light when he encountered Christ on the road and then he heard the voice of Jesus. For complete details, see Acts 9:1-19.
