Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many covenants did God make with the Israelites?

    • A.

      One

    • B.

      Two

    • C.

      At least 3

    Correct Answer
    C. At least 3
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "at least 3" because throughout the Old Testament, there are multiple instances where God made covenants with the Israelites. The three most prominent covenants are the covenant with Abraham, the covenant with Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai, and the covenant with David. These covenants established God's promises to the Israelites, including land inheritance, blessings, and the establishment of a royal lineage. Additionally, there are other smaller covenants mentioned in the Bible, such as the covenant with Noah and the covenant with Phinehas. Therefore, it can be concluded that God made at least three covenants with the Israelites.

    D. Get circumcised
    Explanation
    In order to be eligible to live in the promised land, God told the Israelites that they had to get circumcised. This act of circumcision was seen as a sign of the covenant between God and the Israelites, symbolizing their commitment and obedience to Him. By undergoing circumcision, the Israelites demonstrated their willingness to follow God's commands and be a part of His chosen people.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Moses' brother
    Explanation
    Moses' brother, Aaron, made the golden calf during the exodus. This incident is mentioned in the book of Exodus in the Bible. When Moses went up Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments from God, the Israelites became impatient and asked Aaron to make them a god to worship. Aaron collected their gold jewelry and crafted a golden calf, which the people then worshipped. When Moses came down from the mountain and saw this, he was furious and confronted Aaron about it.

      Mt. Sinai

    • B.

      Mt. Olives

    • C.

      Mt. Carmel

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    Solomon's temple was built in Jerusalem, specifically on Mount Moriah. This location was chosen because it was believed to be the same place where Abraham had offered his son Isaac as a sacrifice. The temple was a significant religious and cultural center for the Jewish people, housing the Ark of the Covenant and serving as a place of worship and sacrifice. Mount Sinai, Mount Olives, and Mount Carmel are all important locations in biblical history, but none of them were the site of Solomon's temple.

    During the time of Hosea what was God of the Bible's name when he changed it to "my husband?"

    • A.

      Yahweh

    • B.

      My Baal

    • C.

      El the God of Israel

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. El the God of Israel
    Explanation
    During the time of Hosea, God of the Bible's name was changed to "my husband" by calling Him "El the God of Israel". This change in name reflects the intimate and covenantal relationship between God and His people, comparing it to a marriage. The name "El" emphasizes God's power and authority, while "the God of Israel" signifies His chosen people. This renaming highlights the deep love and commitment God has for Israel, despite their unfaithfulness.

Therefore, the correct answer is 2.

This is supported by the biblical timeline, as the tower of Babel event is believed to have occurred around 2000 BC, while Abraham's time is estimated to be around 1800-1700 BC. Therefore, Noah's death would have taken place during this time period.
