  • 1. What is the only book of the Bible that offers a blessing to those who read it, hear it, and pay attention to it? It could be Luke, James, or Revelation. :-k
  • 4. List a Bible verse and a song that quotes that verse (include lyrics and a link to where the lyrics are available): Romans 12:21

    Quote:
    Overcome Evil With Good
    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Do not be overcome by evil.

    With good, with good, overcome evil with good. (repeat)
    Do not be overcome by evil.


    Simple song, yet it's one of the first ones that popped into my head. We used to have a tape by Steve Green that had a bunch of songs like this on it. :yes:

  • 7. Who were the five people in the New Testament named James? James (son of Zebedee, a disciple), James (son of Alphaeus, a disciple), James (the son of Mary), James (father of Judas the disciple (not Iscariot)), and... ??? James the brother of Jesus is also listed, but I believe he's the same one as the son of Mary.

Great! But it's only of use to us if you post it before the midnight deadline. ;)

3. Caesarea

this one was kind of hard...my bible dictionary didn't help me on this one...I had to go to the online encyclopedia. Which I don't know if that's cheating but meh. ;)

-- Mon Aug 17, 2009 10:05 pm --

We need 5, 6, 9, and 10 now. Trent's not feeling well so he told me to submit the answers...he gave me what he worked out so far.

-- Mon Aug 17, 2009 10:13 pm --

Starting on 6....alot is in proverbs

they despise wisdom and discipline (proverbs 1:7)
hate knowledge (proverbs 1:22)
fools are complacent (proverbs 1:32)
they are corrupt and their deeds are vile (psalm 14:1)
they find pleasure in evil conduct (proverbs 10:23)

(from the NIV version...yeah I know I like KJV better but ah well.)

-- Mon Aug 17, 2009 10:16 pm --

9. Abednego

as far as #5 and #10...they're killing me.

-- Mon Aug 17, 2009 10:27 pm --
