Thank you for this quiz revealing how little I know about the book of Revelation. (ha…ha) Seriously, I appreciate quizes like this that motivate me to learn some things I might have been avoiding. God bless you, David.
Yours in Christ,


Daniel October 20, 2012 at 1:00 am

Thanks and God bless you David.We Christians should remember that we are required to study the word of God and study it whole heartedly ( Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15 )it’s only when you know where the food is stored in the cupboard,that you can eat it.Christians lets arise and read the word of God more than anything.Let it be a lamp on our feet and a treasure in our hearts
God bless

I’d like say thanks and congratulate each and everyone of you who are making this site a place where we can learn to know, love and appreciate the HOLY ONE which is our Creator, it’s a real blessing to have such site. Everything is well explained, there are always the scriptures and
Bible verses where you can look it up…etc.
My reason for leaving a comment is:-) I really find the quiz very interesting
and rememorising, but I think (it’s only my opinion), that it would be a little more exciting if we were to look up the answers ourselves. Like, put at the end of the questions the Bible verse where to look it up.
Thanks again, keep up the good work and may GOD bless each and every
one of you/us in Jesus’ wonderful Name.

Thank you. Your study let’s me to continue to learn about myself and what I need to do to be in Christ.

To be a christian in Grace is not an act, but as the Holy Spirit kindles my Heart, I walk closer to the Cross,
Jesus Christ.

Good questions .

The bible named two sons of Ahab, how then they killed 70 sons of his?


Jack Wellman June 30, 2020 at 2:17 pm

Hello Keith. Ahab was succeeded by his sons, Ahaziah and Jehoram, but they had children and their children had children, so Ahab’s royal family in the city of Samaria had a total of 70 sons. These included those from his many wives and concubine too. He had two sons who would be heirs, but other sons too.


Keith June 30, 2020 at 2:38 pm

Thanks to Jack for the explanation on my question regarding Ahab’s sons, but did the Bible mention him having wives and concubines?


Jack Wellman June 30, 2020 at 2:43 pm

If Ahab didn’t have a concubine, he’d be the only king of Israel not too! Ahab had more than one wife (1 Kings 20:7).
