Think you know the Bible inside and out? The Bible is full of stories and characters that have played a large part in shaping our culture. Whether you are particularly religious or not, there is no denying the influence these works have had on people around the world for hundreds of years.
Due to the influence of the Bible, its style has often been imitated and themes and more have been borrowed from it for centuries. It was the inspiration for much of the western world's greatest works of art for hundreds of years. Its moral lessons, imagery and more can be found in many things old and new.
The Bible itself was written by a large number of people over a long period of time. It has also been translated countless times, with those translations often being translated again and again. This makes its style interesting but generally incredibly inconsistent. In a number of cases, whole passages of the Bible even contradict each other.
If you are a Bible expert who thinks you can pick out the real verses from fake ones, and can't be fooled by passages from other works, put your Bible knowledge to the test with this biblical quiz.
