Bible Trivia Quiz: Family Relationships

Author:

Lori Colbo loves to write about her Christian faith and the Bible to encourage and inspire others.

The very first thing God did after creating the physical world was to create and institute the family - Adam and Eve. This tells us how much value the Lord places on family. We have dozens, probably hundreds of stories of families in the Bible, including the family of God. We see the good, bad, and the ugly, we learn from every one of them.

Great quiz, lambservant. I love to answer Bible questions.

Dave Mathews from NORTH YORK,ONTARIO,CANADA on May 14, 2012:

lambservant: Thank you for this refresher quiz.

For me it matters not who are or were my earthly parents or ancestors. My heavenly parent is parent to all, Almighty God.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on May 14, 2012:

Thanks for a refreshing break from the regular reads. Good job!

Lori Colbo (author) from United States on May 13, 2012:

lb, many people wonder about who they procreated with. I don't pretend to have the answers, although I've heard many a preacher speculate. I guess I'll open it up to others to comment. Perhaps I can research it and write another hub on it someday. It is a question I've always wondered about myself. Blessings.

Brad Masters from Southern California on May 13, 2012:

The real important question is who would these children of Adam and Eve procreate with to increase the human population?

BTW, you went through two different bibles?
