Biblical Comprehension Quiz

My friend D.W. Congdon posted his score on this quiz and prompted me to take a look at it. Actually, I’d say it’s quite accurate. I grew up reading the Bible my whole childhood and in college I was always considered the guy who knows random Bible facts. I even won two scholarships based solely on a Bible quiz.

But, I’ve felt rusty and simply distracted from reading the Scriptures themselves for the past couple years. This quiz is a good reminder to me that there’s no substitute for actually reading the story of Scripture ourselves. I think that will need to be an emphasis in my Lenten practices this year.

You rank 73% on the biblical comprehension scale.

Well done! You have comfortably passed this advanced biblical comprehension test. You are clearly an attentive student of the Scriptures. There may be a few areas where you are a little rusty, though. Hopefully this test has helped you to identify some of them. Keep up the good work!

    At 55% I feel a bit ashamed. Part of me wants to justify myself by saying that the questions asked don’t evaluate comprehension as much as they do retention. But, it seems that clear comprehension and good theology depends absolutely on retention.
    A good lenten project indeed.

    I actually don’t think it’s accurate. I too was a Bible quiz champion growing up, but the quiz reflects none of that. But of course this quiz was done tongue-in-cheek. It’s not meant to be accurate; it’s meant to be a slap in the face (for good fun).
