The Holy Biblical Quiz - First Epistle Of John - Quiz

The First Epistle of John, often referred to as First John and written 1 John or I John, is the first of the Johannine epistles of the New Testament, and the fourth of the catholic epistles. There is no scholarly consensus as to the authorship of the Johannine works. The author of the First Epistle is termed John the Evangelist, who most scholars believe is not the same as John the Apostle.

    Correct Answer
    C. The blood of Jesus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the blood of Jesus. In 1:7, John states that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.

It is through the blood of Jesus that our sins are washed away and we are made clean in the eyes of God.

    If Christians do sin what should we do? (1:9)

    • A.

      Blame the devil

    • B.

      Confess our sins

    • C.

      Recite scriptures

    • D.

      Fast

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Confess our sins
    Explanation
    Confessing our sins is the correct answer because in 1 John 1:9 it states, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." This verse emphasizes the importance of acknowledging our sins and seeking forgiveness from God. Confession allows us to take responsibility for our actions and receive God's forgiveness and cleansing. Blaming the devil, reciting scriptures, and fasting may be helpful spiritual practices, but they are not specifically mentioned as the appropriate response to sin in this verse.

    • B.

      A feeling of condemnation

    • C.

      A debt to pay

    • D.

      An Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. An Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ
    Explanation
    When a Christian sins, they have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ. This means that they have someone who intercedes on their behalf and represents them before God. Jesus Christ acts as a mediator between the Christian and God, offering forgiveness and reconciliation. This assurance of having an Advocate helps the Christian to approach God with confidence and seek forgiveness for their sins, knowing that Jesus is advocating for them. The other options (guilty conscience, feeling of condemnation, and debt to pay) may be consequences of sin, but the correct answer specifically highlights the presence of Jesus Christ as the Christian's Advocate.
