Question 1 of 10
1. Question1 points
1) What language was the New Testament originally written in?
All 27 New Testament books were originally written in one language. Jesus and the people of Palestine spoke the Aramaic language, a close relative of Hebrew, but Greek was the language commonly used in writing.
Question 2 of 10
2. Question1 points
When was the New Testament written?
Writing was not that common in Palestine 2000 years ago. It was only about 20 years after Jesus’ death that people began to write down the things they remembered about Jesus’ life, ministry, miracles, death, and resurrection. The first New Testament writings were the apostle Paul’s letters to various Christian churches. The books that tell the most about Jesus — Matthew, Mark, Luke and John — were written between 70 and 95 A.D.
Question 3 of 10
3. Question1 points
Which new Testament books are called the “Gospels?”
Gospel means “good news.” The books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are our primary source of knowledge of Jesus’ birth, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension to heaven. They are also the primary record of His ethical and spiritual teachings.
Question 4 of 10
4. Question1 points
Jesus is the central character of the New Testament. What do Christians believe about Jesus?
Matthew 14:33, John 20:31, Luke 10:21, etc. Jesus often referred to God as “My Father in heaven.”
Christians believe Jesus is much more than a historical figure and a good teacher. He is the Christ, the Savior, the Son of God, who came to Earth to redeem us from sin, establish His spiritual kingdom of God on Earth, and to offer the promise of eternal life.
Question 5 of 10
5. Question1 points
What does “Christ” mean?
“Christ” (from the Greek “Christos” ) is the equivalent of “Messiah” (from the Hebrew “mashiach”), meaning “anointed.” It designates Jesus as the Messiah of Old Testament prophecy. Anointing, pouring oil on the head, was a rite to designate and set apart special people such as priests, kings and prophets. We often speak of “Jesus Christ” as if Christ were Jesus’ last name, but it is really a title, not a name.
Question 6 of 10
6. Question1 points
Which of these was at the heart of Jesus’ teachings?
The Jews had expected their Messiah to be a great leader who would restore the glory of Israel. But Jesus’ kingdom is a spiritual kingdom rather than an earthly kingdom. It exists wherever God is trusted and worshiped above all else (Luke 17:20-21).
Jesus brought the beginnings of the kingdom of God with His ministry, and it will be fulfilled when He comes again.
Question 7 of 10
7. Question1 points
What religion did Jesus practice?
Jesus was born a Jew and was faithful to Judaism his whole life. He was known as a rabbi among the people of Palestine. It was only after His death that Jesus’ followers became known as “Christians” and Christianity spread outside of Judaism.
Question 8 of 10
8. Question1 points
What did Jesus say were the two great Commandments that should guide our lives?
Matthew 22:37-39. Jesus said these two principles are the essence of the Old Testament Law and the defining characteristics of those who are truly His followers. Jesus spent much of His public ministry illustrating how we can apply these principles in our everyday lives.
Question 9 of 10
9. Question1 points
Which of these men encountered Jesus for the first time while on the road to Damascus?
Acts 9:3-6. The early Christians faced much persecution and Saul was one of the fiercest persecutors of all. One day, while on the road to Damascus, Saul was blinded by a bright light and Jesus spoke to him saying, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” (Acts 9:3-6).
Saul was instantly converted by this experience, changed his name to Paul, and became the most influential interpreter of Jesus’ life and message. He founded many Christian churches in communities around the Mediterranean area. We know Paul through the letters of instruction, correction and encouragement he wrote to the Churches he founded. Many of these letters have become books of the New Testament.
Question 10 of 10
10. Question1 points
Who were the apostles?
Jesus gave His twelve closest disciples the title “apostle” and sent them out to spread His teachings to all the world. Later, Paul also took the title “apostle”, although he was not one of the original twelve.
