About This Quiz

There are all kinds of leaders in the Bible, from judges to kings to queens to prophets to pharaohs to emperors - to God himself. Some of them are profoundly corrupt and unwise, leading their nations into idol worshiping and ruin. Some have many fine qualities but are brought down by one particular sin such as hubris, when they start to believe that they know better than God. Very few - other than God - are actually flawless. Instead, they are relatable human beings who suffer from the same sorts of doubts and misgivings as the rest of us.

This is why they are so inspiring today. If Moses can overcome a speech impediment or Samson can transcend blindness; if Deborah can break through to lead in a man's world and David can humble himself after committing crimes; if Jacob can repent for stealing his brother's inheritance and Joseph's brothers can repent their fraternal envy - that means any of us can overcome our flaws. It means that whoever we are, there is a Biblical leader who we can look to who embodies the person we're trying to be, and it means that if we persevere, we can become just like them. Let's find yours!
