So I was reading a wee bit and thought, you know what would be a lot of fun, Bible trivia! Just pull obscure passages or trivia outta the Bible, ask about it, and see who can get it right. Worst case scenario, some folks read their Bibles a wee bit more


I'll get it started, and I encourage all of y'all to throw your own questions up here. Good times! Like the Michael Jackson jokes, but...slightly more Biblical in its nature


Who were the seven people put in charge of making sure the Hellenists' widows got food? (Hint: New Testament, more if no one gets it in the amount of time left to answer the question, which I haven't determined yet.
)

I'll take you up on the challenge:

Stephen, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus

Acts 6:5

Wowie Zowie Zooom! Nice job! Now it's your turn, or anyone elses...

...

Or I could throw another out there, why not


In which book and chapter is the armor of God described in the most detail?

Ephesians 6?


My mother would be so proud.

Don't know if this is easy or hard, but I thought I'd try and contribute:

Who killed 69 of his brothers?

Wee, fun! It was Abimelech and the folk of his country who dun it (after all, the youngest escaped!)

lessee here...

Who did Paul command to (should probably paraphrase this so you can't just look up the passage on the web
) be resolute in enjoying the freedom Christ has brought us and not get caught up again in bondage?

Oh, yeah, it was Eph 6, btw

I believe it was me he commanded, and boy, is that Paul ever a party pooper.


Was that the Galatians?

Ok, here's another one, well two, because JJ will get them right away:

Who called themselves a dead dog?

and

Who died during a sermon because they fell asleep?

Well, dead dog comes up in a couple of places, but I did have to look it up. Hey, most of my Biblical knowlege comes from having to look stuff up to debate with all of y'all
biblegateway.com... is my friend
(As is ATS for keeping me growing spiritually, even on the days when I'm cranky and arguementative(er)) Had to look your last one up, too -- I ain't no Biblical scholar yet, but any chance I get to learn more...

Hazael called himself a dead dog to Elisha, while David also eluded to himself being a dead dog to Goliath.

As to falling asleep during a sermon and dying, the closest thing I can find is Rev. Maurice Roberts, but I'm guessing you're talking Bible. The only other possibility that comes to mind, and I expect I'm dead wrong, is David, who "fell on sleep", meaning he died, but that wasn't giving a sermon.

...Stumped...

Come on, you Biblical scholars, come on by and learn us good!

I guess dead dog one wasn't specific enough. Oops. I'll add a little more to make it fairer. This 'dead dog' was given a great gift by a royal.

On the second one, I am talking Bible. I'll give you a hint - he didn't stay dead.

Would that be in Samuel 9? The 'dead dog' was Mephibosheth who received the land of Saul and was able to 'eat continually' from the king's feast.

You are correct. I'd give you a prize if I had one, but you will have to settle for some smilies instead. Sorry.

:w:

As for the person who fell asleep: That would be Eutychus, Acts 20:9 during one of Pauls sermons

Continuing my favorite biblical subject "Strange Deaths in the Bible"

Who stabbed a man and women, while they were having 'whoopie' in a tent?


(hint: it is in one of the first 5 books of the Old Testement)

haha thank you Duzey
...I'll be going to bed soon, but I'll check back here once more after I post my question, probably half an hour from now or a little latter after I take a shower. Maybe Jake can continue the game with you. Here's my question: What land east of Eden did Cain go off to after he murdered Abel, and what was the name of the city that he created?

edit: lol, look what you did Duzey, asking two questions and ruining the game
. Soon everyone will be asking two and we'll have more on our hands than time to answer them all! Just kidding, I'll have a look at yours Jehosephat unless Duzey beats me to it after I wash up!

We have another winner! Of absolutely nothing but a bunch of smilies.....

:w:

Kudo's to Jehosephat.

There is no such thing as too much trivia! Blasphemer!



I think the answer to Jehosephat's is Phinehas, in Numbers 25.

Here's another to keep everyone's thinking caps on:

Who killed a man by driving a tent peg through his head?


Jeshosephat will probably know this one, it could be considered a 'strange' way to die.

you got it Duzey, I will bow out of this latest question so someone else can try.

FYI: My first Pastor started my confirmation classes with a "strange death in the bible" which I think created my interest in biblical study. I also created a list of 15 ways to find a wife, according to the bible, horribly out of date, but funny for us today.

Lists? I like lists. Where is this list you've created?

I figured that one would probably fall under "Strange Deaths in the Bible", but it's still a good trivia question. I'll check back tomorrow and if nobody has it yet, I'll give a hint.

And just to remind all you Bible trivia fiends out there, zhangmaster's question still needs an answer:


What land east of Eden did Cain go off to after he murdered Abel, and what was the name of the city that he created?

Wee, this is fun! Sorry I missed so much last night, gonna have to read through this and see if I know any of the answers before readin' them.

As to the still open question, I know he goes to the land of Nod, but I have no idea what the name of the city is. Er...San Fransisco?

Here's a seeming obvious one unless you know it's one of the most misunderstood things in the Bible


What was Lucifer?

It is often just refered to as "The land of Nod" or translated as "The land of wandering"

yup, good job The city (Enoc) I was referring to was named after his son Enoc.
