Bible quiz

Honestly I don't know why I made this one. Maybe a rainy Saturday helped. Maybe my reading of the book today in the Bible triggered something. I just don't know. But run this test on yourself or your friends or class. See how you go.

Obviously don't cheat; that makes no sense to cheat on a book which basically said, 'don't cheat.'

Please for your own sake, test yourself and see how many answers you get right out of 25. Count each as 4 points and report (if you want) your score. 85 and up is great; 75 and up is good; below that, you need to read slower and listen more carefully.

No one is better if they get these all correct. The amazing thin about the Bible is that you don't have to know very much about it to know it's all true and that God in His amazing love has given it to us to learn about Himself and about facts and history and life and so much more.

OK, here we go...(should I wish you 'good luck?')
