Covers pages 43-50 of Acts (Kantola/Reynolds, PPH), and chapters 10-12 of the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The "Grecians" referred to in Acts 6 were in actuality:

    • A.

      Greeks.

    • B.

      Hellenistic Jews.

    • C.

      Greek-speaking Gentiles.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. Hellenistic Jews.
    Explanation
    The "Grecians" referred to in Acts 6 were Hellenistic Jews. This can be inferred from the context of the book of Acts, which describes the early Christian community in Jerusalem. Hellenistic Jews were Jews who lived outside of Judea and spoke Greek as their primary language. In Acts 6, a dispute arose between the Hebrew-speaking Jews and the Hellenistic Jews over the distribution of food to widows. The fact that the dispute involved Jews suggests that the correct answer is Hellenistic Jews.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because gender was indeed a factor in the selection of the church administrators in Acts 6. The passage specifically mentions that the apostles were looking for "seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and wisdom" to appoint as administrators. The fact that they were looking for men indicates that gender was a consideration in the selection process.

    Why did God send a horribly painful death on Herod? (give the best answer)

    • A.

      Because he brought terrible persecution on the Church.

    • B.

      Because he rejected his opportunity to obey the gospel.

    • C.

      Because he accepted the people's acclaim when they equated him with God.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Because he accepted the people's acclaim when they equated him with God.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Because he accepted the people's acclaim when they equated him with God." This explanation suggests that God sent a horribly painful death on Herod because he allowed the people to worship him as if he were God. This act of accepting such praise and equating himself with God goes against the belief in monotheism and is seen as a grave sin in many religious traditions. Therefore, God's punishment can be seen as a consequence of Herod's arrogance and violation of religious principles.
