The Christian Bible is many things. The Old Testament, which is also the Jewish scriptures, contains a great deal of history and genealogy, but also prophecy, poems of exultation and of mourning, maxims about living a good life, and free-standing stories of people whose faith was tested (and rewarded) by God, including Ruth and Job. These are heroes to many believers. The New Testament contains histories of Jesus's time on earth, a history of the early church, books of wisdom and teaching, and even a book of prophecy -- whose predictions, some Christians believe, are yet to come true.
Do you consider yourself an expert on the Bible? Maybe you were in the first or second pew at church, every single Sunday. Maybe you were sent to an evangelical Christian school, which boomed in popularity in the '80s and '90s, as a kid. Or maybe you simply find the Bible fascinating. After all, it's studied as a work of literature in many secular universities. Whichever is the case, we've got a quiz for you! Settle in and revisit some favorite characters and episodes from the Bible -- the temptation in the Garden, the Great Flood and Noah's escape from it, and more. You might prove your scripture savvy, or you might learn a lot!
