I want to start the new year in Genesis.  How well do you know it?  Maybe you’re a little rusty.  Try this little quiz to find out:

1. Before God sent rain, how was the earth watered?

2. After Noah’s family and the animals were in the ark, who shut the door?

3. How old was Abram when he left his country?

4. What comforted Isaac after his mother, Sarah, died?

5. What did God change Jacob’s name to?

6. Was Joseph bilingual?

7. What were some of the things Israel sent with Joseph’s brothers on their second trip to Egypt?



1. …”streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground…”  Genesis 2:4-7

2. God did.  Genesis 7:13-16

3. He was seventy-five.  Genesis 12:1-5

4. He got married.  Genesis 24:66-67

5. He changed it to Israel.  Genesis 35:9-10

6. Yes.  Genesis 42:22-23

7. He sent balm, honey, spices, myrrh, pistachio nuts, almonds, etc.  Genesis 43:11-14


How did you do?  I hope you did well.  If not, taking a closer look at God’s living Word will be a blessing to you.  May God go with you as you glean gems from His Word in 2017!
