Can You Name These Biblical Figures From a One-Sentence Description?
by Olivia Seitz

The Bible is not just for Sunday school. Get ready to name each of these Biblical figures.

Look, we're sure you probably know who Adam and Eve were (think apple and snake), and you probably remember a thing or two about Noah (hint: the ark) and Moses (because he parted the Red Sea). But how well do you know some of the lesser known Biblical players such as Elijah and Isaiah? New Testament bigwigs such as Jesus (yup, the guy on the cross), Mary (his mom), and Joseph (his dad) are easy to identify, but can you tell us all about Simon/Peter and Paul/Saul? The Bible literally has a cast of thousands, and it's hard to keep them all straight. Perhaps the most important player is God himself, but how does one describe the big guy himself?

So, if you know who Jesus raised from the dead, who sold out Jesus, and who was known the world over for his powers of wisdom, you're ready to begin (if you answered Lazarus, Judas, and Solomon, you're ready to roll). If not, you might want to reread the Good Book. We'll wait...
