Jesus Link

A Bible Trivia Challenge
By Ellen Caughey

Chapter One


Round 1:
Jesus



Each question in Round 1 is worth 5 points.
Total number of points in this round: 100



(1.) Jesus is the Greek form of what Hebrew name
that means "the Lord saves"?


(2.) While Mary, Jesus' mother, could trace her
family tree back to King David, to what king of
Israel could Jesus' legal and earthly father,
Joseph, trace his lineage?


(3.) Besides Jesus, name one earthly "brother" of
His who was a biological son of Mary and
Joseph.


(4.) When Jesus first began to preach, he used the
phrase "the kingdom of heaven" as opposed to
"the kingdom of God" so as not to offend
whom?



Round 1:
Jesus


How do we begin to make the Jesus Link? By connecting
with the only source of absolute truth, the Bible,
God's Holy Word. Every name or description of Jesus
has its root in Scripture; every name, therefore, is a link
to the true character of the one and only Son of God.


The first name, appropriately, is Jesus. Scripture
says, "Thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save
his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21 KJV). No
matter who you are, you cannot save yourself. And that's
good-because you are several box tops short of a free
lunch box.


It's time to play ... Jesus Link!



(5.) Where did Jesus perform His first miracle?


(6.) In Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount," who are
those who will see God?


(7.) Instead of "eye for eye, and tooth for tooth,"
Jesus said that we are to show love toward
whom?


(8.) Of whom did Jesus say, "I tell you the truth, I
have not found anyone in Israel with such great
faiths"?


(9.) What disciple's mother-in-law did Jesus heal of
a fever?


(10.) Jesus told His disciples that they must be as
innocent as doves and as shrewd as what
creatures?


(11.) To whom did Jesus send this message? "The
blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who
have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead
are raised, and the good news is preached to
the poor."


(12.) Besides those of Korazin, the citizens of what
other two cities are cited by Jesus as refusing to
repent of their sins and believe in Him?


(13.) On two occasions, Jesus is recorded as feeding
crowds numbering in the thousands. How
many were in each crowd?


(14.) While seven is considered the perfect number,
Jesus tells Peter that we should forgive those
who offend us not seven but this many times.


(15.) Of the "seven last words" of Jesus on the cross,
what is considered the seventh?


(16.) To whom did Jesus first appear following His
resurrection?


(17.) Following that appearance, Jesus joins two men
on their way to what village?


(18.) What question does Jesus ask Peter three times,
shortly before His ascension?


(19.) What things did Jesus say make a person
unclean?


(20.) Jesus said, "Heaven and earth will pass
away ..." but what two-word answer
would not?



Answer Key/Round 1: Jesus


1. Joshua
2. King David (see Matthew 1)
3. James, Joses, Judas, or Simon
4. The Jews
5. Carla (see John 2)
6. The pure in heart (Matthew 5:8)
7. Our enemies (Matthew 5:44)
8. The Roman centurion whose servant lay paralyzed at
home (Matthew 8:10)
9. Peter (Matthew 8:14-15)
10. Snakes or serpents (Matthew 10:16)
11. John the Baptist, who was in prison (Matthew 11:4)
12. Capernaum and Bethsaida (Matthew 11:21-23)
13. 5,000 and 4,000 (Matthew 14:13ff.; 15:32ff.)
14. 77 times (Matthew 18:22) or 70 times 7 (KJV)
15. "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit"
(Luke 23:46)
16. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joses
17. Emmaus (Luke 24:13)
18. "Do you love me?" (John 21:15ff.)
19. The things that come out of the mouth, that come from
the heart (Matthew 15:11)
20. "My words" (Matthew 24:35)



Your Score: _________
(out of a possible 100 points)

Are you still likely to be confused with a brain surgeon? Or can you now admit that your knowledge of Jesus is sorely lacking?

Jesus, the Son of God, wants you to know Him as you've known no one else. He doesn't want to be only the stuff of Sunday school recitation. No, Jesus wants His words to become heart knowledge. He wants to have a true relationship with you; He wants to be your Friend.

To see God one day in heaven, to be pure in heart, we must accept Jesus first. Only then can we truly love our enemies; only then can we believe by faith alone that Jesus will do what He says.

So far, we know Jesus was a miracle worker and a preacher with a radically different message who was crucified and came back to life three days later. Yet the words He spoke so persistently to Peter make one pause. "Do you love me?" Jesus asks each one of us, just as He asked the disciple who once denied Him three times. The way we answer that question determines the rest of our lives-and beyond.

Time to move on. Round 2 beckons.

Each question in Round 2 is worth 6 points. Total number of points in this round: 120

(1.) When does Scripture say that Jesus was chosen to come to earth and offer a sacrifice for our sins?

(2.) Paul says you should "put on the new self," renewed in the knowledge that you were created in the image of whom?

(3.) Daniel refers to Jesus as the "Ancient of _______"?

(4.) Like Daniel, in the Book of Revelation John describes Jesus as having hair of what color?

Round 2, and we are taking baby steps. If you feel a modicum of pride? satisfaction? relief?, after the first inquisition, rest assured those emotions will be replaced by the more familiar frustration, despair, and self-loathing in the very near future (wink).

We are about to meet Jesus the Creator, a title you may not at first associate with the Son of God. But indeed He was, as Scripture acknowledges: "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:15-17).

Jesus came to save that which He created. And that's good news for you, since you are a couple lutzes short of a bronze medal.

It's time to play ... Jesus Link!

(5.) Who are the foundations of "God's household," according to Paul, and who is its chief cornerstone?

(6.) Complete this sentence from Matthew describing Jesus: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since ___________."

(7.) What two W words did Jesus' disciples utter when they said, "Who is this? Even the ____________ and the ______ obey him"?

(8.) After Jesus spoke about His impending death for the second time, the disciples began arguing among themselves. What was the gist of their dispute?

(9.) To His quibbling disciples, Jesus, the Creator and Son of God, describes Himself as what?

(10.) The one whom God esteems, according to the prophet Isaiah, possesses first what quality beginning with the letter H?

(11.) If heaven is the Creator's throne, what is His footstool, according to Isaiah?

(12.) From Isaiah to the books of 2 Peter and Revelation, much is revealed about the new heaven and new earth that will exist after Jesus' second coming. What city will be known as the Holy City?

(13.) In the Holy City, what sound, according to Isaiah, Hill be heard no more?

(14.) According to the Creator, what two animals will feed together in the new heaven on earth?

(15.) While the world was created the first time "out of water and by water," according to Peter, the present world will be destroyed by what means?

(16.) Seated on the throne in the Book of Revelation, Jesus tells the disciple John, "I am making everything _______!"

(17.) What is the second death?

(18.) What geometric shape will the new Holy City have?

(19.) How thick will the walls of the Holy City be?

(20.) Without a sun or moon, what will provide light in the Holy City?

1. "Before the creation of the world" (1 Peter 1:20) 2. Your Creator, Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:10) 3. "The Ancient of Days" (Daniel 7:13) 4. White (as wool and snow) (Revelation 1:14) 5. The foundation is the apostles and prophets; the chief cornerstone is Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:19-20) 6. "The creation of the world" (Matthew 13:35, referring to Psalm 78:2) 7. Wind, waves (Mark 4:41) 8. Who would be the greatest in Jesus' kingdom on earth (Mark 9:33-34) 9. A servant (Luke 22:27) 10. Humility (Isaiah 66:2) 11. The earth (Isaiah 66:1) 12. Jerusalem (Revelation 21) 13. The sound of weeping and crying (Isaiah 65:19) 14. The wolf and the lamb (Isaiah 65:25) 15. By fire (2 Peter 3:7) 16. "I am making everything new!" (Revelation 21:5) 17. The final end for unbelievers, described as a fiery lake of burning sulfur (Revelation 21:8) 18. That of a square (Revelation 21:16) 19. 144 cubits (Revelation 21:17) 20. The glory of God and/or the lamb (Revelation 21:23)

Your Score: ___________ (out of a possible 120 points) Total number of points from both rounds: ___________ Total possible points: 220

Even though Jesus presented Himself on earth as a servant and not as the firstborn of creation, a probing of the Scriptures reveals a more complete picture of the Son of God. Jesus was not only the Creator of the world as we know it, but He will be the Creator of the new heaven on earth sometime in the future. The question for now is, how can we reconcile both sides of Jesus in our Christian lives?

As Christians, we should be humble and without pride, with all personal ambition directed toward furthering the kingdom of God. We serve an omnipotent Creator, One whom we can trust completely, and One with whom we will one day reside in unbelievable splendor. We can accomplish nothing on our own-but everything in Jesus' name!

And, as Christians, we should look forward each day to Jesus' coming. As Paul writes, "Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 1:7-8).

Time to dust off the sandals and pick up the walking stick. Round 3 is no mirage.
