The Bible is a unique document in that its narrative doesn't revolve around a single character or hero the way many stories do, but is a collection of stories that take place in the same world and have to do with the same culture. As a result, the Bible has many heroes, many villains, and many supporting characters. Lists of these characters are long, and out of context it is hard to put a name to a face. Scholars spend their lives picking apart who these characters are and what they mean to the overall story of the Bible, and even some of those scholars cannot name all the characters in the Bible.

Most of the biblical characters are men, but there are plenty of women in the Bible. How well do you know them? When you think of heroes who sacrifice for their faith, how often do you think of women from the Bible? Do you know many women beyond the central female characters? Could you identify them from a brief sentence describing them in a few crucial details? Could you go toe to toe with a biblical expert and identify all the women of the Bible? Well now is your chance! Take the quiz!
