Only Paper and a Pen

Don’t you remember your high school teacher saying those words just as you entered the room?! 

“Take everything off your desk.  You will only need this paper and a pen because today is QUIZ DAY!!” 

(At that point is when we all started to panic, lol!)  You then turn over the paper and begin to read the questions: 

During which book did Moses build the ark? 

On what day did the serpent eat the apple? 

Why did Abram’s wife turn to salt?

Hmmmm……something’s a little wrong here, don’t you think?!

We’ve been reading for 8 weeks now and though lately we’ve endured long descriptive details about the tabernacle and sacrifices, there have been many other details that may be getting lost!  I thought it would be fun to do a little review and see what we could remember.

The following statements have been scrambled.  If you choose to accept this mission, take some time to put them in order and then post your results in the form of a comment.  (Just list the letters in the order you think they should be.  No cheating!  Don’t use your bible to look back before posting your answers!  This is not an open book test, Bwa ha ha haaaaaa!)

I will post the correct answers on Wednesday of this week.  If you know group members who don’t check the blog very often, please send a message (or post a link to this) via Facebook or email.

Here’s the list:

A.  Frogs plague the land of Egypt.

B.  Isaac is born.

C.  The coming of Jesus is foretold as the serpent is cursed.

D.  Instructions for the Feasts are given.

E.  Instructions for Offerings are given.

F.  Instructions for Tabernacle are given.

G.  Creation.

H.  Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed.

I.  Lice plagues the land of Egypt.

J.  Moses reviews the events of the Israelites leaving Egypt, their wanderings, and arrival at the Jordan.

K.  Jacob receives his father’s blessing.

L.  Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers.

M.  Noah’s Ark.

N.  The first Census is taken.

O.  The Ten Commandments are given.

P.  Abram becomes “Abraham”.

Q.  Jacob becomes “Israel”.

R.  Balaam’s donkey talks.

S.  God provides manna for the Israelites for the first time.

T.  Moses is rescued by Pharoah’s daughter.

U.  Moses and Aaron are sent to tell Pharoah to let the Israelites go.

 

Yes, I know…..it’s a little hard….but we all like a good challenge, don’t we? 😉
