    To which of our months does the Hebrew month Abib or Nisan nearly correspond?

    Correct Answer
    April
    april
    Explanation
    The Hebrew month Abib or Nisan nearly corresponds to the month of April. This is because the Hebrew calendar is based on a lunar cycle, and Abib or Nisan typically falls around the spring equinox. In the Gregorian calendar, April is also a spring month, making it a close approximation for the Hebrew month. The repetition of "April" and "april" in the answer options further confirms this correspondence.

    • A.

      A sound means of determining the will of God.

    • B.

      A practice that is taught and endorsed by a number of scriptures.

      A biblically correct alternative to prayer, fasting and godly counsel as a means of determining God's will.

    Correct Answer
    C. A form of divination (witchcraft) known as bibliomancy.
    Explanation
    Bibliomancy is the practice of seeking guidance or predicting the future by randomly selecting a passage from a sacred text, such as the Bible. This practice is considered a form of divination or witchcraft because it relies on supernatural or mystical powers to interpret the chosen passage as a message from God. It is not endorsed by scriptures as a legitimate means of determining God's will, and it is not a biblically correct alternative to prayer, fasting, or seeking godly counsel.
