Bible Quiz - October 23, 2009 - Jesus Said...

It's time again for our Bible Quiz. This weeks questions should be easier than last week and it's an open book quiz, meaning you may use your bible but not the internet. So let's get started.

  • These are all statements made by Jesus. (Taken from the NIV)
  • Who did He say them to?
  • What was the situation or circumstance?
  • Extra Credit: Where is it found? (Hint: I only used two books of the Bible.)

1. "I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith."

2. “Stand up, pick up your mat, and go home!”

3. "Come, follow me, ... and I will make you fishers of men."

4. "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

5. "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's."

Answers will be posted tomorrow.


"A girl needs to be so lost in God, that the guy is going to have to seek HIM to find her!" ...Maya Angelou

OK...I'm fairly certain these are all Gospels passages: Matthew and....Mark? (Otherwise, I'd say Luke. These don't read like John. But, this is a little tough as all the quotes are from Jesus and fairly straight-forward in language. Can you tell the concept of "address" of a Bible passage wasn't really made a priority?)

1. Jesus was speaking to the Centurion, who ventured out in search of Jesus, seeking healing for his son. The Centurion didn't even ask for Jesus to come. He asked Jesus to heal his son and trusted that he would, right from where he was. Jesus did!

2. Jesus' healing of a paralytic man, who was lowered through the roof of a home by friends to reach Him. Jesus was preaching at the time. Quite an entrance!

3. Jesus' calling of the first disciples--Peter, James, John. They had been fishing and He called out to them, using terms that they certainly understood. He saw through to their hearts, too. (This I'm pretty sure is from Matthew.)

4. Jesus is preaching. This is the rich man who follows all the commandments and wants to know how to get into Heaven. Jesus says he needs to give his money to the poor--because his clinging to wealth is keeping him from a relationships with Jesus. The man walks away, unable to do what Jesus has said. (Matthew)

5. This was the close to Jesus' escape from a Pharisee word trap. Did Jesus/disciples have to pay taxes....to whom, when, for what. (Clearly missing details.) Jesus' point being that we need to not only obey the earthly authority, but God, who comes before and provides for us earthly authority. (And were the pharisees following their Heavenly authority in all things? I think we know the answer to that!)

1. To the apostles in reference to the centurion who believed Jesus could heal his son.
2. To the cripple at Bethseda. Jn 5:8
3. He said this to peter and andrew. Mat. 4:19 and Mark 1:17
4. to the apostles, Mat. 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25
5. To the Pharisees. Mat. 22:21, Mark 12:17, Luke 20:25.

NYUK, NYUK, I'm a knucklehead...

What Sue & the warrior said. :-)

I couldn't tell you the Bible verse without looking them up. I didn't know #1. I thought #2 was the man by the pool. #2 I knew, #4 I knew. & #5 I knew what he was talking about, but not the context.

With a lot of time I could find them all in the Bible, but I don't have that today!

1. In Capernaus, Jesus said it to a centurion, somewhere not too far into Matthew.

2. Jesus healed the paralytic and told him to take up the mat and walk, somewhere in Matthew, close to the one about the centurion. I'd have to look it up.

3. Matt. 4 Sea of Galilee, to Peter and Andrew- I'll make you fishers of men.

4. He said this to his disciples after speaking to the rich, young ruler or man, whichever way you've learned it. Matt. 19 or 20

5. He said this to the Pharisees in Matthew somewhere toward the end- ch. 22?

1. OOps, I typed too fast. He didn't say it to the Centurion, but in reference to the centurion. I guess he was speaking to his followers.
