About This Quiz

You don't have to be a student of Theology to ace this quiz, but it might help. If you think you know enough about the Bible to fill in the missing word from these 35 Bible verses, let's get started to find out how well you'll do.

One of the challenges in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School was memorizing Bible verses. We remember it well. In fact, we remember some of the Bible verses we memorized years ago far better than some of the stuff we needed to know from school. Maybe that's because the Bible verses we memorized were supported by stories rich in tradition, history and visual representations; or maybe it's because of the treats we were given for memorizing them. Either way, these verses have stuck with us. And because we love sharing cool stuff with you, we've put together a quiz based on 35 of the most favorite Bible verses. We challenge you to find out if you remember each one.

So, if you remember great verses such as "No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other," take this quiz now!
