Take a Christmas Bible Quiz

Christmas Bible Quiz
Looking for a fun family Christmas activity? A few years ago, I designed this fairly simple quiz as an amusing game to play with my family on Christmas Day.

While I was testing everyone's Bible knowledge, we learned the facts and fiction surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. This family-friendly Christmas Bible quiz is also a unique way to share the Christmas story.

Great Quiz -

I was hoping to print it out and give it to nieces and nephews. Can I do that?

Laurie –

Thanks! Yes, you can give it to your nieces and nephews. At the bottom of this page are the details of my reprint requirements, and “giving to nieces and nephews” falls into the “okay, no need for formal permission” category. :-)

Thanks for the christmas quiz. I must disagree with your answer to question 8 as to where Jesus was born. All we know for sure was that He was born in Bethlehem. You can only infer that the birth took place in a stable because He was placed in a manger after He was born. It never says He was born in a stable,in fact He could have been born in a house because in those days it was common for the animals to be kept in the owners house, or it could have taken place in a cave which was also done back then, we just aren’t told for sure. Thanks, Ben

This is a great idea! Christmas story is usually boring specially for the youth, doing it through or by a Bible Quiz
It makes the event exciting and alive.

The answer to number one is actually most likely 2 months, not 2 years. The wise men went looking for the babe in Jerusalem and found him in Bethlehem. Mary and Joseph lived in Nazareth and it is much more likely that they stayed in Bethlehem for 2 months after the birth than 2 years. Mary would have been declared clean by Jewish law after 33 days and would have been able to travel after 6 weeks, meaning that by the time Jesus would have been 2 years the magi would have found him in Nazareth, not Bethlehem.

The common mistake is made because Herod has all the male children 2 years and under killed, but it is believed that this was a means taken to ensure he killed the Christ child without mistake.
