Bible Grandparents Quiz

(4 Minute Read. 1Sep2021)

Three Grandmothers — Five Generations
Great-grandmother, Great-great-grandmother,
Baby, Grandmother, Mother

The Bible is full of grandparents who greatly influenced the course of history through their children, grandchildren, and subsequent generations.

The Sunday following Labor Day is National Grandparents’ Day in the U.S. This year it falls on Sunday September 12, 2021. It is a day to show special honor to grandparents for their love, work, and sacrifice in raising and providing for children and grandchildren.

How well do you know the Bible Grandparents? Do you know your Bible Grandparents as well as you can whiz through celebrity grandparents?

Here is a quiz I put together on Grandparents in the Bible. All the answers are in the Bible, but the answers will also appear in next Wednesday’s blog post Bible Grandparents Quiz Answers preceding National Grandparents’ Day.

Some of these quiz questions are easy and some are hard, but all are intriguing. And all prompt reflection on the Scriptural context of the family relationships. Try to answer first without using the Bible. Some questions have more than one correct answer, so be sure to carefully consider all listed responses. Enjoy!
