2. Who told wives to obey and respect their husbands and told husbands to love their wives as themselves?
A. James
B. John
C. Peter
D. Paul

Answer: D. Paul (Ephesians 5:22-33; Colossians 3:18-19)
The Apostle Paul instructs wives to be subject to their husbands in everything and to see to it that they respect their husbands. He tells husbands to love their wives as their own bodies, nourishing and cherishing them. Peter adds that husbands are to honor their wives so that the men’s prayers are not hindered (1 Peter 3:7).

3. Why did David’s wife Michal despise her husband, violating the principle of respect that Paul would express a thousand years later?
A. David married another wife Abigail while fleeing from Michal’s father King Saul.
B. Michal saw David wildly dancing as the ark of the Lord was brought to Jerusalem.
C. Michal saw David pretending to be insane to escape Achish the king of Gath.
D. Michal saw David send Uriah to his death to cover David’s adultery with Bathsheba.

Answer: B. Wild dancing (2 Samuel 6:14-23)
It seems likely from the passage that Michal’s punishment for despising her husband was life-long barrenness.

4. Who stayed married to the same woman for at least 130 years?
A. Adam
B. Methuseleh
C. Noah
D. Abraham

Answer: A. Adam
Adam and Eve had their son Seth when they were 130 years old (Genesis 4:25; 5:3). See How Long Did Adam Live and How Many Children Did Adam Have?
Nothing is said in Scripture about Mrs. Methuseleh. Noah had three sons starting at age 500. He entered the ark with them and their wives and Mrs. Noah at age 600, but nothing is said about how long he and Mrs. Noah were married (Genesis 5:32; 7:6-7). Abraham’s wife Sarah died at age 127 (Genesis 23:1-2).

B. Rebekah was from the wealthiest family in the city.
C. Eliezer rescued her from bullying shepherds at a well.
D. Rebekah voluntarily watered his camels without being asked.

Answer: D. Voluntarily watered his camels (Genesis 15:2-4; 24:1-4; 24:10-61)

6. Who in the Bible married an Ethiopian woman?
A. Noah
B. Ham
C. Moses
D. David

Answer: C. Moses (Numbers 12:1-15)
Moses’ siblings Miriam and Aaron criticized him for marrying a Cushite woman. Cush is the Bible’s name for the region that used to be called Ethiopia — today’s southern Egypt and northern Sudan. Cush was the first of the sons of Ham (son of Noah) and the father of Nimrod who founded Babel and Nineveh (Genesis 10:6-12).
Moses married Zipporah during his 40-year sojourn in the desert prior to the Exodus. Zipporah was the daughter of Jethro, priest of Midian. It is not clear whether Miriam and Aaron were referring to Zipporah or to a subsequent marriage. Habakkuk’s association of Cush and Midian may support the Cushite wife being Zipporah (Habakkuk 3:7).

7. Who was given his cousin in marriage as a reward for capturing a city?
A. Joshua
B. Othniel
C. Joab
D. David

Answer: B. Othniel (Joshua 15:13-19; Judges 1:11-15; 3:9-11)
Othniel, the first of Israel’s judges, was the son of Caleb’s younger brother Kenaz. Caleb gave his daughter Achsah to Othniel for his wife as a reward for capturing the Canaanite city Kiriath-sepher.

8. Who told his father regarding a woman, “Get her for me, for she looks good to me”?
A. Isaac
B. Jacob
C. Judah
D. Samson

Answer: D. Samson (Judges 14:1-3)
It did not turn out well.

9. What did David pay King Saul in order to marry his daughter Michal?
A. 10 talents of gold
B. 100 shekels of silver
C. 100 suits of armor
D. 200 pieces of Philistine flesh

Answer: D. 200 pieces of Philistine flesh (1 Samuel 18:20-29)
King Saul specified the bride price for his daughter Michal to be 100 Philistine foreskins, hoping to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. David and his men killed 200 Philistines and doubled Saul’s asking price.

10. Who was commanded by God to marry a harlot and be a good husband to an unfaithful wife?
A. Isaiah
B. Ezekiel
C. Hosea
D. Amos

Answer: C. Hosea (Hosea 1:2-3; 3:1-3)
Hosea’s marriage to Gomer was to be a vivid picture of how God was faithful to the unfaithful nation of Israel that whored after false gods.

11. Who was commanded by an angel to marry a specific woman?
A. Moses
B. Abraham
C. Gideon
D. Joseph

Answer: D. Joseph (Matthew 1:18-25)
An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream telling him to take Mary as his wife and that her pregnancy was from the Holy Spirit.

12. How did Protestant Reformer Martin Luther meet his wife Katharina in the 1500s?
A. She was a nun that he helped escape from a convent.
B. She was a parishioner in his church in Wittenberg.
C. She was a student in his theology course at the University of Wittenberg.
D. She was a cook and nurse he met during his stay at Wartburg Castle.

Answer: A. Escaped nun
Reformer Martin Luther (1483-1546) met Katharina von Bora (1499–1552) in April 1523. She was one of 12 nuns he helped escape from a convent by smuggling them out in fish barrels used for herring. Within two years, Luther had arranged homes, marriages, or employment for all the nuns except Katharina. She told Luther’s close friend and fellow reformer Nikolaus von Amsdorf that she would marry no one except Luther or von Amsdorf.
In 1525 at age 41, Luther began a happy marriage to 26-year-old Katharina. Luther had long condemned on Biblical grounds the celibacy vows required for priests by the Roman Catholic Church. His wedding defied the Catholic Church and served as a strong endorsement of clerical marriage. Luther wrote, “Suddenly, and while I was occupied with far different thoughts, the Lord has plunged me into marriage.” He also said, “My Katie is in all things so obliging and pleasing to me that I would not exchange my poverty for the riches of Croesus.” Katharina bore Luther six children and respectfully called him “Sir Doctor” throughout her life.
Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation on October 31, 1517, by posting his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg church door.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her; that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each individual among you also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see to it that she respect her husband. (Ephesians 5:22-33)
