About This Quiz

The Bible has been around for a long time and a lot of people have read it and continue to read it.

The most common version, the King James Version, has been in print since 1611. Since that initial printing, there have been 5 billion copies in print. That makes the Bible the most popular book in the world.

The Bible has significance to not only Christians. Many of the people and events in this book have importance to the other Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Islam. Fifty-four percent of the world's population  (close to 4 billion people) are believers of these religions. 

The people and events in the Bible are important to believers because they feel like it has relevance not only for themselves but for all humankind. That relevance is because these words come straight from God through divine inspiration.

This book outlines how the world was created by God and what people did after. It's a book about the relationship between God and people, especially about His chosen people. For most of the book, that focuses on the Jews and their history of walking with God. But the rest of the book explores how God came to earth and expanded being chosen to everyone who chooses to believe.

For some believers, what happens in the Bible happened exactly as it was written. For others, they are stories and allegories that explore bigger themes of humanity and divinity. Yet for those who don't believe, this book is full of myths which may have some historical significance, but more for those who believe in the Abrahamic religions.

Whatever you believe, we hope this quiz doesn't give you any Lamentations and that you may even find some Revelations. Good luck!
