    14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of ______ leading to ______, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. -2 Cor 2:14-16

    • A.

      Peace

    • B.

      Joy

    • C.

      Death

    Correct Answer
    C. Death
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "death" because in this passage, the apostle Paul is using the metaphor of fragrance to describe the influence and impact that believers have on others. To those who are perishing (spiritually), the message of Christ can be seen as the aroma of death, as it confronts them with their need for salvation and the consequences of rejecting it. However, to those who are being saved, the message of Christ is the aroma of life, leading them to eternal life through faith in Christ.

    7... if the ministry of _____, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, 8 how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? -2 Cor 3:7-8

    • A.

      Life

    • B.

      The law

    • C.

      Death

    Correct Answer
    C. Death
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "death." The passage is contrasting the ministry of the law, which was written and engraved on stones and brought death, with the ministry of the Spirit, which is more glorious. The glory of Moses' countenance, which came from the ministry of the law, was passing away. Therefore, the ministry of death (the law) is being contrasted with the ministry of the Spirit, which is more glorious and brings life.

    9 For if the ministry of ________ had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. -2 Cor 3:9

    • A.

      Condemnation

    • B.

      God's rules for his people

    • C.

      The old covenant

    Correct Answer
    A. Condemnation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "condemnation." This verse is referring to the comparison between the ministry of condemnation (referring to the old covenant) and the ministry of righteousness. It states that although the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness surpasses it in glory. This suggests that the old covenant, which focused on rules and regulations, was surpassed by the new covenant of righteousness through Jesus Christ.

    15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a _____ lies on their heart. -2 Cor 3:15

    • A.

      Feeling of joy

    • B.

      Veil

    • C.

      Fear of God

    Correct Answer
    B. Veil
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "veil." In this verse, the Apostle Paul is referring to the Old Testament practice of Moses veiling his face after speaking with God, as described in Exodus 34:29-35. Paul is using this imagery to illustrate that there is still a spiritual veil that prevents people from fully understanding and accepting the message of Moses, which ultimately points to Jesus Christ. This veil represents a spiritual blindness or hardness of heart that can only be removed through faith in Christ.

    • A.

      Fear

    • B.

      Love

    • C.

      Liberty

    Correct Answer
    C. Liberty
    Explanation
    The verse from 2 Corinthians 3:17 states that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. This suggests that the presence of the Lord brings freedom and liberation. It implies that through the Spirit of the Lord, individuals are set free from bondage, sin, and the constraints of the world. This freedom allows believers to live their lives in accordance with God's will and experience a sense of liberation from the burdens of the world.

    18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as _____ the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. -2 Cor 3:18

    • A.

      In heaven

    • B.

      In the temple

    • C.

      In a mirror

    Correct Answer
    C. In a mirror
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "in a mirror." This verse from 2 Corinthians 3:18 is referring to the transformation that believers undergo as they behold the glory of the Lord. The phrase "with unveiled face" suggests that believers have direct access to God's glory, and the phrase "in a mirror" implies that this beholding is done through reflection or contemplation. By looking into the mirror of God's Word, believers are able to see and experience the glory of the Lord, which leads to their transformation into His image.

    3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds ______ has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. -2 Cor 4:3-4

    • A.

      God

    • B.

      The god of this age

    • C.

      The devil

    Correct Answer
    B. The god of this age
    Explanation
    In this passage from 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, the correct answer is "the god of this age." The passage is talking about how the gospel may be veiled or hidden to those who are perishing. It states that their minds have been blinded by the god of this age, referring to Satan or the devil. This blindness prevents them from believing in the gospel and experiencing the light of the gospel, which is the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

      Message of the cross

    • B.

      Knowledge

    • C.

      Peace

    The correct answer is "knowledge" because the passage is talking about God shining His light in our hearts to give us knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. The focus is on the understanding and awareness of God's glory and the message of the cross, rather than preaching about ourselves.
