Pop quiz!

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

Mama Beth has posted a pop quiz for the Siestas...the followers of her blog.  The challenge is to answer the questions without looking up the answers.

I started to do it in the comments, but decided it was worth a blog post.  So here goes... (I went back and edited it to put the right answers in where I could...)

1. Have you been in the Scriptures today?
Um, sort of.  I went to a Bible study tonight and I also reread some old blog posts from the study of Philippians...

2. If so, what’s the primary verse you remember?
Phil 3:10 - He works in us to will and to do according to His will (paraphrased)

3. What is the major theme God seems to have going with you right now? (Answer in a phrase)
 It's not about the destination...it's about the journey.

4. What is your favorite translation of the Bible just for the pure pleasure of reading?

5. By what Name did God tell Moses He would be known throughout all generations?

6. To what individual did Jesus say, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me?”

7. How long had the man at the pool of Bethesda been an invalid?
 ooo, honest...guessing here.  28 years?  (Answer: 38 years.  I thought that was too long...)

8. For what courageous statement is Queen Esther most well known?
 "If I perish, I perish"

9. What did Potiphar’s wife keep of Joseph’s?
 His coat/cloak

10. What three men did the Apostle Paul consider to be the pillars of the church?
  Peter, James and... John (? I think?)  (answer: yes!)

11. What day of the week did the Apostle John receive his first post-ascension vision of Christ?
 The Lords Day...Sunday...the first day of the week

12. Those of us who are in Christ have not received a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. What exactly did we receive instead according to that same context?
A spirit of love, power and a sound mind  (I may have mixed up my translations; the NIV says 'power, love and self-discipline')

13. Name three characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman.Try to answer first from memory.
She rises while it is yet dark; her lamp does not go out at night, she makes her arms strong for her tasks

14. Who fell asleep during one of Paul’s sermons and dropped out of the window?
  Eutycus (hope I spelled that right)  (answer: close.  Eutychus)

15. When Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up, how many wings did the seraphim around Him have?

16. What two godly men had a falling out in the Book of Acts? Who was it over?
 Paul and Barnabas, over whether or not they would take John Mark with them on their second missionary journey.

17. Name five sets of married couples in the Bible.
Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Ruth and Boaz, Joseph and Mary

18. In one word, what is your biggest challenge right now?

19. Name two people you’ve encouraged today.
Debbie and Kathy

20. Why did Jesus marvel in Mark 6:6?
  Ack!  It was either someones great faith or someone's lack of faith.  Don't remember which story is in Mark 6...  (Answer:  the lack of faith in the folks in his hometown)

21. Are you actively getting to practice loving someone you’re pretty sure can’t stand you right now? (No names please) If so, how long have you been in this process?
Um, not so much at the moment...

22. What are the names of the firstborn son and his brother in Genesis 22:21?
 Esau and Jacob?  Maybe?  (answer: Uz and Buz, sons of Abraham's brother Nahor)

23.What would the sons of Korah rather do than dwell in the tents of wickedness?
 I'm not even going to try to guess at this one; I can think of several possibilities but I honestly don't know what the answer would be. (Answer:  Be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord.  Which was one of the possibilities... ;-) )

24. Who penned the Book of Hebrews?
 Ha ha ha!  Trick question!  No one knows for sure.

25. What runaway slave did Paul send back to his master, asking him to receive him graciously as a brother?

Bonus: Are you memorizing a Scripture right now? If so, tell it to us!
 Um,  I'm in between memorizing verses... :-D  I'm working on memorizing the five fold purpose of our girls' ministry...which seems harder to me than scripture, for some reason ...
To win girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance
To teach them to obey everything Jesus commanded us - developing girls spiritually and mentally
To provide encouragement, support and accountability through lasting Christian relationships
To provide an environment for girls to develop their gifts and abilities
To acquaint them with the Great Commission of Jesus Christ our Lord
