A great book has great characters, just like the Bible. But can you name the most influential of them all in this book?

The Bible features tales that have often been retold in literature and pop culture. And why are Hollywood execs and novelists still mining this book of faith for storylines, even after centuries of existing? Simple: the Bible has great and influential people in it. Do you think you can identify some of them in our interesting quiz?

Any existing classic book in human history is full of touching stories, courageous characters, uplifting underdog narratives, and people who have lost their way (but realized it and repented, or didn't and remained that way 'til the end). The Bible is the same. Starting from the Old Testament books and continuing through to the last books of the New Testament, the book features characters who have withstood the test of time and survived the modernization of the ages. We cheer the efforts of the good people, and we despise the twisted maneuverings of the not-so-good ones. Yes, some of these famous do-gooders and evildoers are included in this quiz! We're sure you can name them all!

At the heart of unforgettable Bible stories are influential characters. Whether their influence falls on the light side or the dark, they're still counted as influential - because they're inspirations for us as readers. We learn the lessons they learn and take note not to make the same mistakes they did. 

So come, start this quiz and see if you can pinpoint who's who in our Influential People From the Bible Quiz. We have faith that you can do it!
