Bible Trivia

Since I started studying at Trinity Theological College, I have been "pounded" with tons of information about theology.

Here are some interesting Bible trivia that I have picked up along the way.

In fact, I made it into an ala trivia pursuit game with my wife. She loves to digest information like this!

1. How many letters did Paul write?

Answer - 13 (some say 14, but Hebrews seems to be written by a 2nd generation Christian)

2. In the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), which of the 4 are part of the original 12 disciples?

Answer - Matthew and John. Luke is a gentile writer and a companion of Paul on his 2nd missionary journey (Acts 16). Mark is Peter's companion.

3. Which of the Gospels, is considered the earliest work?

Answer - Mark.

4. In the New Testament, which writer can say that he wrote the most number of words?

Answer  - Luke. His works had more words than Paul's letters combined.

5. Which of the 12 apostles was not martyred?

Answer - John. He died of old age in his 80s.

6. Which 3 apostles are considered the pillars of the Early Jerusalem Church?

Answer- Peter, James and John.

I hope you guys scored well, as you attempted the 6 questions.

Before I go, for all those readers out there, who have been following American politics, here's a funny video.
