Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. A well known Bible story involves Lot's wife being turned into a pillar of salt when she disobeyed divine orders and looked back on the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Nevertheless, Lot and his daughters were able to safely escape from the destruction. How many daughters of Lot were able to escape with their father in the nick of time?

Answer: 2

According to Scripture, Lot and his two unnamed daughters made it safely out of Sodom and Gomorrah when the two cities were destroyed with brimstone and fire. Genesis 19:12-29 tells of an angel instructing Lot to flee prior to the destruction of the cities. According to the passage, the husbands of Lot's two daughters were also told about the impending destruction.

But when Lot talked about what was to happen "to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking", as per Genesis 19:14 in the NKJV. As a result, they were among those who perished in the two cities.
2. 1 Samuel 19 tells of Saul sending soldiers to kill a man who would eventually become king of Israel. However, Michal was able to save her husband's life by letting him down through a window so he could flee. What was the name of Michal's husband who made an escape in the nick of time?

Answer: David

David is the correct answer. Michal was the daughter of Saul and the first wife of David; while her father wanted David dead, she took decisive action to save her husband's life. Details about Michal enabling David to escape by letting him down through a window can be found in 1 Samuel 19.

The chapter also tells of Michal using deception to buy some time for David. Before the soldiers arrived, Michal had taken an image and laid it in the bed, put a cover of goats' hair for his head, and covered it with clothes, making it look like her husband was sick and sleeping.
3. Two Israelite spies were able to escape from Rahab's house in the nick of time when she let them down the wall of the city with a rope. In what city did Rahab, the famous prostitute, live?

Answer: Jericho

Rahab, the famous prostitute who assisted two Israelite spies, lived in Jericho. In the eyes of the Israelites she was a heroine, but in the eyes of her countrymen she was a despicable traitor. Joshua 2 tells of Rahab giving safe haven to two Israelite spies.

When authorities came looking for the spies, Rahab told them they had visited her house and had left some time ago. In actuality, the spies were hidden beneath a pile of flax on the roof of her house. After the authorities left, Rahab enabled the spies to escape undetected from Jericho. Joshua 2:15 in the NKJV states she "let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall."
4. A worker in the early church was in grave danger of being assassinated in Damascus but he managed to escape death when other followers of Jesus let him down through the city wall in a large basket. Who was the worker, as per Acts 9:23-25?

Answer: Paul

Shortly after Paul's conversion, a plot was hatched by opponents of Christianity to kill him in Damascus. Acts 9:23-25 tells of Paul's opponents watching the city's gates day and night to kill him when he left the city. However, the disciples came up with an ingenious plan to save Paul's life. Verse 25 states the disciples took Paul by night and let him down through the city wall in a large basket.

No further details are given, but it is apparent the plan was instrumental in saving Paul's life.
5. Scripture tells of Paul and two hundred seventy-five other people being on a storm tossed ship on the Mediterranean Sea for no less than fourteen consecutive days. Finally, the ship ran aground off an island and everyone made it safely to land, seemingly in the nick of time. Where did the shipwreck happen?

Answer: Malta

Acts 27 tells of Paul and two hundred seventy-five other people who were on a storm tossed ship that ran aground off the coast of Malta. Miraculously, everyone made it to shore safely. This even though the ship had been battered as if it was a puck in a National Hockey League game for fourteen consecutive days. Scripture goes on to tell of Paul and his companions using the occasion to preach the Gospel message to the residents of Malta.
6. What member of the original Twelve Disciples was imprisoned and most likely facing execution when he was able to make a break to freedom in the nick of time?

Answer: Peter

Acts 12:3-19 tells the remarkable story of Peter being set free from prison by an angel. It's abundantly clear Peter faced the death penalty as Acts 12:1-2 tells of James, the brother of John, being killed on Herod's orders. When Herod found out his actions pleased the Pharisees and other religious leaders of the day, he ordered the arrest of Peter.

However, Peter's life was saved in the nick of time when an angel visited him late at night and enabled him to escape from Herod's clutches. In fact, the jailbreak took place the night before Herod was to put Peter on trial.
7. Scripture tells of members of the original Twelve Disciples being tossed into jail. However, they were all able to make a break for a freedom after a highly unusual event. What highly unusual event resulted in the disciples gaining their freedom?

Answer: An angel freed them

The disciples were able to make a break for freedom after an angel of the Lord freed them. Details can be found in Acts 5:17-29. According to the passage, they were jailed simply because they were preaching the Gospel message. However, things changed dramatically when an angel opened the prison doors, enabling them to escape. Scripture states the jail-breakers went back to the temple and continued to preach the Gospel message, as per instructions received from the angel.
8. Acts 19:21-41 tells of an unruly mob in Ephesus seizing two workers in the early church and their future was very much in doubt. However, the two workers managed to escape the full wrath of the mob in the nick of time when an unnamed city clerk managed to calm everyone down. What was the name of the two church workers who were seized?

Answer: Gaius and Aristarchus

The two church workers seized during a riot in Ephesus were Gaius and Aristarchus. Their future was very much in doubt when "a great commotion" erupted, as per Acts 19:23 in the NKJV. Stirring up the mob was Demetrius, a silversmith, who made a living selling silver shrines of Diana.

As a result of Demetrius' efforts, Verse 29 states "the whole city was filled with confusion, and rushed into the theater with one accord, having seized Gaius and Aristarchus."

Scripture goes on to tell of the unnamed city clerk showing up in the nick of time and being successful in getting the mob to quiet down. However, it was not until the people had chanted for about two hours, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!"

It was agreed if there were charges to be brought against Gaius and Aristarchus it would be done legally in a courtroom setting. No further details are given in Scripture.

The city clerk must have been a silver-tongued orator to have such success in quelling the riot that could have easily claimed the lives of Gaius and Aristarchus.
9. Luke 4:28-30 tells of a hostile multitude determined to kill Jesus by throwing Him over a cliff. However, Jesus miraculously evaded them by apparently becoming a phantom and passing through their midst. In what community was Jesus when He saved Himself in the nick of time?

Answer: Nazareth

Jesus was in Nazareth, His home village, at the time of the miracle, as per Luke 4:16. When the people attempted to seize Jesus and throw Him over a cliff, He simply passed through the midst of them and went on His way.

Scripture gives little in the way of details, but going by Luke 4:29-30, it's as if Christ became an apparition and His assailants were unable to put their hands on them.

Matthew 13:58 in the NKJV explains Jesus declined to perform "mighty works" in the area surrounding Nazareth, due to the unbelief of the people.
10. The Gospel of Mark tells of a young man with a linen cloth on his body being apprehended in the Garden of Gethsemane, just after the arrest of Jesus. However, the man was able to break free and ended up fleeing from the scene naked. Going by Scripture, what was the man's name?

Answer: No name is given

No name is given for the young man who fled naked from the Garden of Gethsemane after the arrest of Jesus. Some scholars believe the man was none other than John Mark, the writer of the Gospel of the Mark. However, there is no way of knowing for certain when it comes to the man's identity.

For details, see Mark 14:51-52.
