About This Quiz

The Bible is full of prophets who speak truth to power, make predictions, and interpret the will of God for the regular humans around them. They're people who were touched with a certain spark, a particular connection to the divine that made them able to ascertain best what signs in the world around them really meant. 

Prophecy is not just about making predictions. Indeed, the word "prophecy" means "speaking forth." Prophets' role was to challenge the societies in which they lived to be better, to be resolved to do that which is virtuous, even when it means making the difficult choice. 

This means many - and perhaps most - of them were considered at the least, controversial in their times, and at the most, highly offensive. Some of them even ended up getting their heads chopped off (or worse) by the powers that be since they challenged their authority and their decisions.

What sort of prophet would you be? Would you focus primarily on predicting the future and warning people to mend their ways before a terrible fate befell them? Would you be most interested in issuing proclamations about how terrible everyone is being and giving them the tough love they need? Or would you be a kindlier figure who was ready to offer gentler guidance? Tell us about your prophet attitude, and we'll tell help you choose your prophet name!
