We went to the movie theater not too long ago and discovered we had arrived a little early. To keep us entertained until the movie started, a series of trivia questions began to show up on the movie screen. After answering a couple of the questions correctly I began to realize I certainly knew a lot of useless information, but then it got interesting. I found myself eagerly waiting for the answers to those questions I did not know. That’s when it hit me. Why not have the “down time” in a movie theater ask questions that would actually enhance our knowledge? What if they offered world history, U.S. history…wait…what about Bible knowledge. To get us prepared for Easter this Sunday, how about I ask six questions that will test your Bible knowledge?
- To whom did Jesus say these words, “Assuredly I say to you, one of you will betray me?”
- Which of the twelve disciples agreed to help the plotters capture Jesus and how much was he paid?
- What was the sign given between the betrayer and the multitude, to identify Jesus as the one that they were looking for?
- The governor found no fault in Jesus and said, “I am innocent of this just man’s blood!” What did he then do, to prove that he meant what he said?
- After sentencing Jesus, He was scourged and a crown of thorns was placed on His head. He was then spat upon and mocked. What did they do to Him next?
- What was the purpose for Christ’s death?
- The 12 disciples = Matthew 26:20-23
- Judas Iscariot with 30 pieces of silver = Matthew 26:14-15
- A kiss = Matthew 26:48
- He washed his hands = Matthew 27:22-25
- They led Him away to be crucified = Matthew 27:27-31
- Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures = 1Corinthians 15:3
