Testing time!

At Jim's Sunday evening Bible study, we were given a selection of questions from the 2010 Pew Rearch Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life poll in 2010 to test our knowledge, with the questions relevant to Christianity only given (we were not given questions unrelated with our study) to the class. We were astonished of the Bible Knowledge questions how many did not answer the questions correctly.

As Our Word does discuss faith issues, we'll see how many of you can answer these questions -- NO USE OF ANY SEARCH ENGINE TO FIND THE ANSWERS. And no, this is NOT an open book test! I missed one, and that I shall not mention.

Please be careful and phrase #10, #11, and #12 in the form of a question!

  1. What is the first book of the Bible? 
  2. What are the names of the first four books of the New Testament ("the Four Gospels")? 
  3. Where, according to the Bible, was Jesus born? 
  4. Of these four, one is NOT in the Ten Commandments. Identify the one NOT in the Ten Commandments: a) Do unto others as done unto you; b) Do not commit adultery; c) No stealing; d) Keep the Sabbath 
  5. Which figure is associated with remaining obedient to God despite suffering? 
  6. Which figure is associated with leading the exodus from Egypt? 
  7. Which figure is associated with willingness to sacrifice his son for God?
  8. What is Catholic teaching about bread and wine in Communion? They are the body and blood of Christ They are symbols 
  9. Which Group traditionally teaches salvation is through faith alone? Protestants Catholics Both Neither 
  10. Of Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Mormonism, it was the faith of Mother Teresa. 
  11. Of Luther, Aquinas, and Wesley, his writings and actions inspired the Protestant Reformation. 
  12. Of Jonathan Edwards, Charles Finney, and William Franklin (Billy) Graham Jnr, he was an evangelist in the First Great Awakening.

Have fun guys!
