About This Quiz

The women of the Bible had to put up with so much. They reared saviors, prophets, kings, nations—you name it! Do you think you have what it takes to master the trials and tribulations of ancient times?

The Virgin Mary was tasked with keeping her baby bump a secret for many months, and she had to protect the Savior of the world from bloodthirsty King Herod. Running from the authorities is probably that last thing you'd want to do immediately after giving birth. How about Abraham's wife, Sarah, who was also on the move constantly? Sarah's super devotion to her hubby enabled Abraham to fulfill his God-given assignments. Sarah held her tongue when it came to the unpleasantries of nomadic life. You can imagine that an onslaught of bickering between Sarah and Abraham would have changed the course of biblical events considerably. So thank God for Sarah's inspiring patience!

Maybe you feel that patience is for peasants, as Jezebel likely did? Jezebel didn't give a raven's poot who disagreed with her choice of gods or how she chose to run her wicked kingdom. Jezebel was a brazen diva in the land of noblemen, corrupt crooks and God-fearing men. Could you possibly multitask on such a high level?
