A: Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.
B: And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as of lions.
C:And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.
D: In those days as well as later when the sons of the gods had intercourse with the daughters of mortals and children were born to them, the Nephilim were on the earth; they were the heroes of old, people of renown.


Yeah, that is a bit easy; the answer is B (it's the woe of the 5th trumpet in Revelation chapter 9); A is from 1 Kings (one of Elijah's most famous smitings), C is from Judges (Ehud's assassination of Eglon king of Moab), and D is from Genesis 6 (the introduction of the flood narrative).

In terms of chapters, or actual text? Matthew and Acts have 28 chapters, Mark and Romans have 16.

A. Dorcus
B. Eutychus
C. Jairus' daughter
D. Shunamite's son

It had to be either Matthew or Acts (both 28 chapters long), and I would guess Acts in either English or Greek.

A. Dorcus
B. Eutychus
C. Jairus' daughter
D. Shunamite's son


Another easy one; D, the Shunamite's woman was raised by Elijah. Dorcas was raised by Peter in Acts, Eutychus was raised by Paul in Acts (after he famously fell asleep and toppled out of a window due to Paul speaking at length), and Jairus' daughter was raised by Jesus in the gospels (can't remember which, but at least in Mark).

Interesting. How many people did Jesus raise from the dead in the gospels? I only remember Lazarus.

Who said as God as my witness if you say that one more friggin' time I'm going to crown you?
"When liberty comes with hands dabbled in blood it is hard to shake hands with her." Wilde

"I don't know where the sun beams end and the star light begins. It's all a mystery." Flaming Lips

"a man's position here is not ruled so much by what he can earn as by what he can owe and still remain at large." Letters of a Shanghai Griffin

"It's called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it." George Carlin

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight.
