    • A.

      3500 Years

    • B.

      4000 Years

    • C.

      2012 Years

    Correct Answer
    B. 4000 Years
    Explanation
    Jews have lived by faith in prophecies for 4000 years. This is because the Jewish religion is rooted in the belief in the prophecies of the Hebrew Bible (also known as the Old Testament). These prophecies, which were believed to be messages from God, guided the Jewish people in their religious practices, moral values, and expectations for the future. The Jewish faith has been shaped by these prophecies for thousands of years, making 4000 years the most reasonable answer.

      The Israelites

      Abraham

    • C.

      Moses

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The first promises to Israel were made to Abraham. In the book of Genesis, God made a covenant with Abraham, promising to bless him and make him the father of many nations. God also promised to give the land of Canaan to Abraham's descendants, who would become the nation of Israel. This covenant with Abraham laid the foundation for the relationship between God and the Israelites, making him the recipient of the first promises.

  • 3. 

    Is it true that the Jewish people are the only people group alive today from the ancient Canaanite civilizations?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. The Jewish people are considered to be the descendants of the ancient Canaanite civilizations. The Canaanites were an ancient Semitic-speaking people who inhabited the land of Canaan, which is present-day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, and parts of Jordan and Syria. Over time, the Canaanites assimilated into various groups, including the Israelites who eventually formed the Jewish people. Therefore, the Jewish people can be seen as the only people group alive today with direct ties to the ancient Canaanite civilizations.

      They will go back to Egypt

    • C.

      The Messiah will never return

    Correct Answer
    A. They will be scattered to the four corners of the earth
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that biblical prophecies predicted that if the Jewish people did not live a godly life, they would be scattered to the four corners of the earth. This refers to the concept of the Jewish diaspora, which has historically occurred multiple times throughout history, most notably with the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem. This prophecy serves as a warning and consequence for not following God's commandments and living a righteous life.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    The statement is false because throughout history, Jews have faced persecution and discrimination solely based on their religious beliefs and ethnic background.

      A light unto nations

    Correct Answer
    C. A light unto nations
    Explanation

This means that they were meant to spread God's teachings and values to the rest of the world, serving as a moral and spiritual guide. They were expected to embody righteousness, justice, and compassion, and through their actions, inspire others to follow suit. This role as a light unto nations emphasized the Jewish nation's responsibility to positively impact the world around them.

      Desolate and nothing grew there

    Many Jewish people are returning to Israel.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement is true because there has been a significant increase in the number of Jewish people returning to Israel in recent years. This phenomenon is often referred to as "Aliyah," which means the immigration of Jews to the land of Israel. Various factors such as religious, cultural, and political reasons contribute to this trend. Additionally, Israel has implemented policies and programs to encourage and support Jewish immigration, making it easier for Jewish people to return to their ancestral homeland.

    The Hebrew language was never revised.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The Hebrew language was never revised" is false. The Hebrew language has undergone several revisions throughout its history. One of the most significant revisions occurred during the 19th century when a group of scholars known as the "Maskilim" worked to modernize the language and adapt it for contemporary usage. This process involved the creation of new words and the adoption of grammar rules from other languages. Additionally, the Hebrew language has evolved over time, with changes in pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that the Hebrew language was never revised.
