Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which book produces this beautiful quote? "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails..."

Answer: 1 Corinthians

Most theologians believe that Paul is the author of this work and this is from his first epistle to the Corinthians. Its full title is "The First Epistle Of Paul the Apostle To The Corinthians". The complete quote can be found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 in the New Testament.

Note: For those of you a little less familiar with the process of looking up quotes in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 means that (1) you look in the index for the name of 1 Corinthians and (2) find chapter 13 in that work and (3) then read verses 4-8.
2. "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins". Where can this over-the-line-first quote be found?

Answer: 1 Peter

Third and fourth Peter don't exist. This quote, found in the New Testament, is from "The First Epistle General of Peter" 4:8. It can be applied to almost any situation in life. It could also be likened to acceptance of one another's faults - as well as Christ's sacrifice on the cross. Remember, the Bible operates on more than one level.

It has face value, personal revelation, biblical and historical reference, and deep mystical value as well. Seek and ye shall find.
3. "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love". Where is this quote found?

Answer: 1 John

This book teaches that God is love - all encompassing - pure and true. This quote, from 1 John 4:8 in the New Testament, means that by loving and caring for one another (even though that may be exceedingly difficult at times!) readers become part of this universal love, and thus part of God and all this represents.
4. "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth - for your love is more delightful than wine". What is the title of this work which has been attributed to a wise biblical king?

Answer: Song of Solomon

"The Song of Solomon", found in the Old Testament, is also referred to as "The Song of Songs" and it operates on two levels. One is that of the beautiful images of love between a man and woman and all its sensual delights. The other is an allegory of the love of God for the people of Israel, and the promises of the joy this love will give those who turn to Him. It's an exquisite piece of writing. While there is some debate about authorship, the alternate title "Song of Songs" doesn't reflect that. It's just a different way of abbreviating "Song of Songs, which is Solomon's." In Hebrew grammar, a phrase like "Song of Songs" means that this song is the best of songs (like the holy of holies, or the king of kings), and many people and publishers prefer to keep that connotation in the title of the book. Ultimately it is more about what is being taught, rather than who penned it. This of course can also be likened to the ongoing debate over Shakespeare and his works. The great works themselves still exist.

This quote is from Song of Solomon 1:2. (Thanks CellarDoor for your input with this question!)
5. "Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred". Where is this found?

Answer: Proverbs

Perhaps another way of expressing this proverb (from Proverbs 15:17) in the Old Testament is that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence, no matter how appealing it seems. It warns against any number of things - seeking money over family, dishonest achievement or ambition over honest work, or sin over a contented and God honouring life. Once again the beauty of the many layers of meaning in the Bible is shown here.

It speaks directly to whomever opens its pages. The authorship of the majority of Proverbs has been attributed to Solomon.
6. "And above all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity". Which book is the source of this statement?

Answer: Colossians

Colossians is the twelfth book of the New Testament. It is believed to be the work of the apostle, Paul. One of his followers is thought to have also written it as well. Following the death of Christ, and his ascension into heaven, Paul wrote many epistles to seven churches in that area of the world, exhorting them to remain strong, and to keep their lives and works centred on all that Jesus represented. This, most of all, was love - in the particular, in the general and in the spiritual.

This quote is from Colossians 3:14.
7. "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." What advice is 1 John giving here?

Answer: Faith without good deeds is useless

This advice (from 1 John 3:18) is also to be found in James. Both are from the New Testament. It illustrates the hypocrisy of those who talk of faith and present themselves as devoted Christians, but who aren't prepared to follow these words through with actions.

This doesn't mean that they have to rush out and build a new temple in Jerusalem. It simply means to give of oneself to those in need in some way, or in the service of Christ. It could be a warm smile, an understanding heart, a comforting shoulder to the broken-hearted and weary, or the struggling fallen, in some way. Or weeding a garden for a frail, elderley person, or even just simply listening.

This verse counsels anything, in fact, that reaches out in some way to help, or lead others to a better reward - as long as it is done with love.
8. "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her". From which biblical book is this?

Answer: Ephesians

This verse (Ephesians 5:25 in the New Testament) doesn't mean to rush out and get yourself crucified, gentlemen. It simply indicates that the love of a man for his wife should be that of absolute commitment. And vice versa of course. The book is usually taken as advising wives to be obedient to their husbands as well. Piffle to that I say! However, taking this beyond the level of its interpretation by many people today, this is simply an allegory for obedience to the laws of the Lord. For Christians today, this can be summed up by one short phrase offered by Jesus - "Love thy neighbour as thyself" (Mark 12:31). Think about this and what it is really saying. (No Johnny, you do not have to have more than one wife at a time when you grow up. Stop crying.

It just means to treat everyone as you'd like to be treated.)
9. "Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers all wrongs". This proverb is strangely reminiscent of a saying that the Flower Power people were fond of touting in the 1960s. What was that?

Answer: Make love, not war

It's amazing really how so much sound advice in the earlier parts of the Bible is reflected in the great law given by Jesus in the New Testament, "Love your neighbour as yourself" (Mark 12:31). This, applied to any situation in life where anger plays a part, could solve it instantly, whether the dissension is between people, states or countries.

The quote is from Proverbs 10:12 in the Old Testament.
10. "Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame". This of course is taken from the Song of Solomon 8:6 and love between man and woman - but what else does it refer to?

Answer: The love of God for the Israelites

This is a beautiful verse that, apart from its romantic aspects, is a great tribute to the love of the Lord for the Israelites. This work was written and presented in the Old Testament, long before the advent of Christ and the sacrifice He made for all mankind, as recorded in the New Testament. Christians believe we are now all drawn under the umbrella of that love. That love endures to death, with nothing being able to destroy it.

The word jealousy here is nothing to do with scratching anyone's eyes out. It represents the strength and power of the Lord's love for his people. Its passion and fire and sacrifice gives me goose bumps.
