I was thinking that I have had a lot of quizzes that left a lot of questions left unasked, and thus unanswered. I had a quiz about Faith, Hope, and Love. I had a quiz that played off the games of Categories (add an “S” to the beginning of the word and you get the popular game that comes in a box). I wondered what would happen if I mashed those together and had people fill in the blanks for each letter in Faith, Hope, Love. With the categories of People, Places, and Something Else, in other words, not a “people” or a place.
If you want to peruse past quizzes, feel free to do so. There was a quiz on animals in the Bible. There was a quiz on planting a garden. There have been quizzes on people and places also. But when it comes to the “Something Else”, it does not have to be a thing, as long as you can find the word in the Bible. Please, find something for the “T” rather than just stating “the” or “them.” Why not think of attributes of God? But it must be a word in the Bible. I use the NIV for such searches. “Trinity” is well established in the Bible, but the word is not in the NIV. Neither is “Triune.” So, that is the basic rule.
The game in the box has a time limit, but you can take as long as it takes.
By the way, I could not find a place name for the “F” or the “V.” I got creative and gave you those two. Jesus went fishing with the disciples, so there had to be a “Fishing Spot” somewhere. Jesus carried the cross until Simon of Cyrene was conscripted to carry it. They had to have travelled on one path or another. The modern “Via Delorosa” may not have been the path, but it is travelled today with reverence as if it were the path. Thus, I will give you those, since I could not find those letters. If you find one, let me know in the comments section. My son said that he found a “fortress,” but is that a place or a “something else?”
Also note: The Scriptures above are not “hints.” They are – flat out – giving some of the answers away, if you so choose.
My answers are found at the following Bible verses. If you have other answers, you are fine as long as you can find them in the Bible. I have two answers that people may take exception with. My first “E” under “Something Else” is a “place,” but it could be considered a thing. Sure, I could have picked something else, but I wanted to show that you don’t have to get super strict in the choice of answers. Also, the second “E” answer under Places is inferred in that the word in the Bible adds an “N” to the end of the place. If there are people from there, then the place existed in Biblical times. Again, there were other “E” places that I could have chosen, like where Joseph was sold to Potiphar, as an example.

The great thing about this quiz is that if you get an answer that is found in the Bible, no matter how obscure, you got it right.
To be honest, I had fun with this quiz. I dreamed it up without knowing whether it was even possible. I had to fudge a bit on two of the place names, but when it came to the “Something Else,” I drew a blank with the “I” and the second “E”. I looked at the television, which was muted, and looked, and looked, for about five minutes and then both words that I dreamed up popped into my head, almost at the same time. I laughed at the mental block, but I realized that this, at least for me, was a great exercise in remembering Bible stories and verses. While I consider push ups hard work, this quiz was enjoyable exercise. And I did not even break a sweat!
And regardless of how you did, here is a psalm, sung by Shane and Shane, Psalm 8.
And a song by Hezekiah Walker, Every Praise. And the dancers from Korea are great too.
This next song is sung by Andrae Crouch with Jesse Dixon, Soon and Very Soon.
