About This Quiz

Are you an expert on the parables of the Bible? Prove it by acing this quiz!

There are four Gospels of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Of these four Gospels, only three - Matthew, Mark and Luke - are called the Synoptic Gospels. Synoptic Gospels are gospels that contain the same, or similar, stories, often told in the same order. Each of these Synoptic Gospels, and a few non-canonical gospels, are full of parables - stories that are used to teach a certain message. It is via these simple stories that Jesus was thought to convey the larger lessons of religious beliefs that are central to the Christian faith - lessons such as spiritual growth, the power of prayer and the true meaning of love. 

Although parables are known to be part of Christian (and other religious) teachings, many people, even those who are not Christian, are at least familiar with these stories and what they mean. These stories are thought to display common themes that enable just about everyone to relate to them. Because of this, most people can then connect the stories to the lessons taught within them.

Let's find out how much you know about the parables of the Bible.
