Religion Quizzes

Remember those three topics never to bring up in conversation? Religion, politics and money. Well, two out of three isn't bad in this section. Sporcle offers a great selection of religion quizzes and games for everyone. If you are looking for Bible trivia, Jewish quizzes, or any other beliefs, there is religion quiz here for you. If you're feeling up for a challenge, see if you can determine the religion by the symbol or if you can name all of the Greek gods in a Greek quiz. Don't worry; even if you don't get a 100% on everything, you're still clear of the seven deadly sins.

In its defense, the fake new testament probably has a lot of great one-liners.

    Also, I would accept "Wisdom" for "Wisdom of Solomon". I'm not sure what your source is, but it seems to differ somewhat from that of the USCCB: http://usccb.org/bible/books-of-the-bible/index.cfm, which omits 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, the Prayer of Manasseh, and the Letter of Jeremiah. The latter is a separate book in the Orthodox Bible, but in the Catholic Bible it is included as the final chapter of the Book of Baruch. The others were rejected as apocryphal by the Catholic Church at the Council of Trent.

    Good idea for a quiz... I feel a bit cheated when most of the Bible quizzes default to the Protestant version. However, I think you should not use the term "Apocryphal books" because the word "apocrypha" intimates that the books are of questionable origin. That is the word that Protestants use for those books. However, Catholics and Orthodox consider those books as part of the canon, with no question of their origin, and therefore refer to those books as "Deuterocanonical". I think you should use that term instead.

    For the sake of variety, it's nice to see a quiz that's "outside the box" and just as there quizzes about historical religious figures or countries by denomination, this is a quiz that straddles two categories. I see no problem.
  4. Books of the Old Testament (Roman Catholic)

    So far as I am aware, 1 and 2 Esdras, the Prayer of Manasseh, and the Letter of Jeremiah are not accepted as canonical by Roman Catholics.

    @fyar: I thought the same thing as soon as I saw the heading "Apocryphal Books". It seems not to belong in a quiz about the Catholic Bible. It's as though it's a quiz about a Protestant list of the Catholic Bible books. It may not seem like a big difference, but it kind of is.

    @backintheussr6: I agree. That spelling should be accepted. My own Bible has it as Zacharia, but it uses different spellings for a lot of these (e.g., Tobias instead of Tobit, Ezechiel instead of Ezekiel, etc.). I can adapt, though, to different spellings, but since the quiz source lists Zechariah, it should be an alternate. My Bible also contains Sirach, as does the list of Old Testament books found on the site for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops - http://www.usccb.org/bible/books-of-the-bible/index.cfm.

    @Journey - Part of me agrees with you, but I tried it on some friends without the names and they found it really hard. So I had to choose between an overly hard quiz and a quiz that some folks would find too easy, and I chose the latter.

    @fyar - The irony was intentional. :-)

    I thought of Cuba where it was a first for a Pope to visit, and then of Greece where some angry orthodoxs denounced him as the devil. I tried them and no results. Then I looked at the title... Oh, more than once...

    @likeagrapefruit Yeah, I agree. The only deuterocanonical books I've ever heard of as being part of the Catholic canon are Sirach (Ecclesiasticus), Baruch, Judith, Tobit, Wisdom [of Solomon], and the Maccabees.

    The source you cite has Zechariah for the penultimate book of the OT

    (*ahem*) It's not well known, but the Apostle Paul *did* write one of his epistles to the Philadelphians. It read in full: "Yo! Cheese wit'."
