Test Your Knowledge of the Old Testament

Do you know your Bible? Well, let's just find out if you do with a quiz. How 'bout it? This is now the second in a series entitled: "Test Your Knowledge of the Bible." The first test was on the New Testament. This second test will focus on the Old Testament. When you're finished you'll be able to check how well you did below. So let's go...

1. How many different books make up the Old Testament (according to the Protestant tradition)? (a) 39; (b) 66; (c) 28; (d) 27.

2. The Old Testament relates to the New Testament in the following way: (a) the Old Testament takes back seat to the teaching of the New Testament; (b) the Old Testament is the New Testament concealed while the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed; (c) the Old Testament should be taken as a separate body of writing with little or no relationship to the New Testament; (d) the Old Testament is the Jewish Scriptures while the New Testament is the Christian Scriptures.

3. The Hebrew Old Testament accepts the following books as unified texts versus being split up in to two (more than one answer): (a) 1 and 2 Kings; (b) 1 and 2 Samuel; (c) Ezra and Nehemiah; (d) 1 and 2 Chronicles.

4. Proof of the inspiration of the Old Testament Scriptures (that is, that they were given divinely by God and they are without error) is the fact that: (a) many of the authors began their writings with or used the phrase: "Thus saith the Lord," and "Hear the word of the Lord"; (b) the New Testament includes verses that speak of the Old Testament, too - verses like: "All Scripture is inspired by God" (2 Tim. 3:16a) and "But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God (1 Pet. 1:20-21; (c) predictions made by the Old Testament prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah and Daniel have come to pass (for example, Isaiah predicted the Messiah would be born of a virgin, Jeremiah predicted the fall of Judah, the exile to Babylon and Israel's return to her land, Daniel predicted the rise and fall of empires including Babylon, Persia and Greece) (d) all of the above.

5. The central and unifying theme of the Old Testament is: (a) the people of Israel and their establishment in the Promised Land and as a nation; (b) the giving of the Law/Ten Commandments to Moses on Mt. Sinai and his subsequent communication of that Law to the Israelites; (c) Abraham, who was to become the father of many nations and in his Seed would the peoples of the world be blessed; (d) the Person and work of Christ.

6. The books of the Old Testament are broken down as follows: (a) 5 of law, 12 of history, 5 of poetry, 5 of major prophets, 12 of minor prophets; (b) 5 of law, 12 of history, 5 of poetry, 6 of major prophets, 11 of minor prophets; (c) 5 of law, 12 of history, 5 of poetry, 4 of major prophets, 13 of minor prophets; (d) 5 of law, 12 of history, 5 of poetry, 7 of major prophets, 10 of minor prophets.
