Can You Name These People Found in the Bible From a Single Hint?
by Zoe Samuel

"Father Abraham had many sons. Many sons had father Abraham!" This isn't a history lesson, so we're not talking about the 16th President of the U.S. We're talking about Abraham from the Bible! When it comes to all the people introduced in this religious text, can you identify them from a single hint?

The Bible is probably the most followed text in religion. With Christianity being the most practiced religion with more than 2.2 billion followers and Judaism having more than 13 million, it is clear that many people have been exposed to the historical teachings of this book. Can you recognize all the people in the Old and New Testaments?

The Bible is separated into two sections: the Old Testament and New Testament. The Old Testament introduced people like Adam, Eve, Abraham, and Moses. This section of the Bible takes place before the birth of Jesus Christ. The New Testament begins with the four Gospels, by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, before going into the epistles. Matthew and Luke introduce the birth of Jesus, while the remaining Gospels and many of the Pauline epistles tell stories of his life. 

In the New Testament, we are introduced to Jesus' disciples as well as Mary and Joseph. There are hundreds of people at the center of the Bible's teachings. How many of them could you guess from a hint?

This isn't Jesus Christ Superstar or The Prince of Egypt, but you'll definitely find those people in this quiz! Are you ready to put your biblical knowledge to the test?

Let's go!
