    • A.

      A mouth for God

    • B.

      A fortune teller

    • C.

      A christian

    • D.

      A disciple

    Correct Answer
    A. A mouth for God
    Explanation
    A prophet is someone who speaks on behalf of God, conveying His messages and teachings to others. They act as intermediaries between God and humanity, relaying divine revelations and guidance. This role goes beyond mere fortune-telling or predicting the future, as prophets serve as spiritual leaders and messengers of God's will. Being a Christian or a disciple may involve following the teachings of prophets, but it does not define the essence of a prophet itself. Therefore, the most accurate definition of a prophet is "a mouth for God."

It implies that you have been given the power or responsibility to act on their behalf and make decisions or take actions in their name. This could be in a legal, official, or representative capacity, where you are authorized to act on behalf of someone else and your actions carry their authority and endorsement.

    We know David was a prophet because

    • A.

      The Holy Spirit spake by his mouth

    • B.

      He went about teaching

    • C.

      He was a good man

    • D.

      He had a good heart

    Correct Answer
    A. The Holy Spirit spake by his mouth
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the Holy Spirit spake by his mouth." This is because in the context of prophethood, the ability to speak by the Holy Spirit is a significant characteristic. Prophets are believed to receive divine revelations and messages from God, which they then communicate to others. Therefore, the fact that the Holy Spirit spoke through David's mouth indicates his prophetic status. The other options, such as teaching, being a good man, or having a good heart, are not exclusive to prophets and do not necessarily indicate prophethood.

    • C.

      Lying

    • D.

      Cheating on taxes

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Ananias and Sapphira committed the sin of lying. In the book of Acts in the Bible, it is mentioned that they sold a piece of property and brought a portion of the proceeds to the apostles, claiming that it was the full amount. However, they had actually kept some of the money for themselves. When confronted by Peter, they both lied about the amount they had received from the sale. Their sin was not in withholding the money, but in deceiving and lying to the apostles and to God. This act of dishonesty resulted in severe consequences, as both Ananias and Sapphira were struck dead.

This is evident from the context where the apostles were facing a problem of neglecting the distribution of food to widows.

These seven men were then appointed to serve tables and ensure fair distribution of food among the widows. Therefore, the correct answer is 7.

    A witness is someone who has firsthand knowledge of an event or situation and is called upon to provide testimony or evidence in a legal proceeding.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Witnesses cannot have successors who are also witnesses generations later. Witnesses are individuals who have firsthand knowledge or information about an event or situation. Successors, on the other hand, are people who come after or follow in the footsteps of someone else. Therefore, it is not possible for witnesses to have successors who are also witnesses in future generations.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given answer, False, is that the Jews were indeed held responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus. While it is true that the Romans physically carried out the act of crucifixion, it was the Jewish religious leaders who accused Jesus of blasphemy and handed him over to the Roman authorities for execution. The Jewish crowd also played a role in demanding Jesus' crucifixion, as they chose to release the criminal Barabbas instead. Therefore, the Jewish involvement in the crucifixion cannot be denied.

    Explanation
    The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection. They were a Jewish sect during the time of Jesus who rejected the idea of life after death and the resurrection of the dead. They only accepted the authority of the Torah and did not believe in angels or spirits. This belief set them apart from other Jewish groups, such as the Pharisees, who did believe in the resurrection.

    T or F.  The Sanhedrin court tried to get the apostles to keep on preaching.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Sanhedrin court did not try to get the apostles to keep on preaching. In fact, they tried to stop them from preaching and spread their message. The apostles were repeatedly arrested and warned not to speak about Jesus. The court even went as far as imprisoning them to prevent them from continuing their preaching. Therefore, the statement that the Sanhedrin court tried to get the apostles to keep on preaching is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement is true because Jerusalem is located on a mountain range, specifically in the Judean Mountains.

Conversely, when you leave Jerusalem and descend to a lower elevation, you are going down.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

The Sanhedrin was a Jewish legal and religious council during the time of Jesus, and the high priest held significant authority and power within this council. They were responsible for making important religious and legal decisions, and their role was crucial in the governance of the Jewish community. Therefore, it is the high priest who would have been the head of the Sanhedrin council.
