Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 'Young Boy With Sling Kills Giant'

Answer: David and Goliath

I Samuel 17 - For days the Israelites crouched in fear at Goliath's challenges, but when David heard the challenge he said that God would give him the victory. His slaying of the giant made him a national hero and King Saul very jealous.
2. 'I Wrestled an Angel All Night Long and Lived to Tell About it'

Answer: Jacob

Genesis 32:22-32 After this happened, God changed Jacob's name to Israel, which means 'he struggles with God'.
3. 'Donkey Talks to Man!' 'Man Reports, 'My donkey saved my life'

Answer: Balaam

Numbers 22:21-41 - Balaam's donkey saw an angel with a sword, sent by God to try to keep Balaam from completing his mission of placing a curse on the Israelites. The donkey saw the angel and tried to keep Balaam from being killed. He finally succeeded when God allowed the donkey to talk.
4. 'Bethany Man Walks Out of Grave After Being Dead for Four Days: Witnesses say 'Jesus of Nazareth' called the man out of the tomb'

5. 'Father and Sons Build Boat in Desert' 'Neighbors Scoff as Man Predicts Water Will Fall from the Sky and Cover the Earth.'

Answer: Noah

Genesis 6 - Up until the time of the flood it had never rained on earth (see Genesis 1:6-9; 2:5-6). This made Noah's faith even more remarkable.
6. 'Preacher Swallowed by Great Fish, and Lives in the Fish's Stomach for Three Days'

Answer: Jonah

Jonah 1 and 2 - After the great fish vomits Jonah upon dry land, God comes to Jonah a second time and gives him the challenge to go and preach to Nineveh. Jonah obeys and the whole city repents. Also known as Jonas in some versions of the Bible.
7. 'Hebrew Man Freed From Egyptian Prison After Interpreting Pharaoh's Dream! Former Prisoner Predicts Famine Will Strike In Seven Years.'

Answer: Joseph

Genesis 41: Joseph is a great story about the providence of God. He goes from a hated brother sold into slavery, to the head of Potiphar's household. After Potiphar's wife accuses Joseph of attempted rape, he is thrown into prison. He interprets dreams for two other prisoners. One of those prisoners tells Pharaoh about Joseph and the Hebrew goes from prisoner to second in power in Egypt.
8. 'Peter Breaks Up Funeral by Bringing A Joppa Woman Back to Life'

Answer: Dorcas

Acts 9:32-43 - Mourners showed Peter all the garments that Dorcas (Tabitha) made while alive. Makes me wonder what will people say about me when I die!
9. 'Man Kills One Thousand Philistines Using a Donkey's Jawbone'

Answer: Samson

Judges 15:13-17 - Samson was a man of great physical strength, but he was inwardly weak. His lack of self-control led to his capture by the Philistines. He killed many more Philistines at his death by pushing down pillars which led to the collapse of a temple.
10. 'National Leader has Affair with Neighbor then has her Husband Killed'

Answer: David and Bathsheba

Answer: Abel

14. 'Tragedy in Uz! Wealthy Businessman Loses Livestock, Servants, and Children, All in One Day'

Answer: Job

Job 1:1-22 - Job is a great book dealing with the problem of human suffering. Though Job experienced many tragedies, he came through the trials with a stronger faith in God.
15. 'Ninety Year Old Woman Gives Birth to Son! One Hundred Year Old Father Says, 'God Told Me I Would Have this Child'

Answer: Abraham and Sarah

Genesis 21:1-7 - Abraham is known as the 'Father of faith' because he trusted God to give him this child. He was seventy-five when God made this promise. Twenty-five years later he has the promised child, Romans 4 says that Abraham never doubted God.
