Each question comes directly from the Bible, forbearing the temptation to use items related to topics such as theology, church history, beliefs, doctrines, or educational disciplines. The primary intention of these exercises is to concentrate on the Bible itself. When you have completed each question, click on the Answers button to be see each question with the correct answer, your response to the question, and a mathematical computation of correct / wrong answers in percentage. Many of the more difficult or especially tricky questions have a detailed explanation with accompanying scriptures to fully explain our reasoning. Each quiz level has slightly more difficult questions and presumes a more thorough understanding and comprehension of the Bible. The degree of difficulty of these various quizzes is determined by a mixture of three components: number of questions, theological depth of the subject matter, and the progressive use of "fill in the blank" type of questions. The latter is probably the most influential factor because it quickly removes the probability of guessing at visible answers. Finally, a reminder that in the case of True/False questions, if any part of the statement is false - the answer is false, no matter how true the rest of the statement may be.
