1. According to Deuteronomy 6:4, what God most wants us to know about Him is:

    1. He is Israel’s God Incorrect: while this is also true, "B" shows what God wants everyone to know about Him, and what He wanted the Jewish people to tell the nations.
    2. He is the only God Correct
  2. When Yeshua quoted Deuteronomy 6:4 (see Mark 12:29) he was showing the religious authorities that:

    1. He was not inventing a new religion, but his teaching was consistent with what God had revealed in the Jewish Scriptures. Correct
    2. He didn’t know very many other commandments Incorrect: Mark 1:21–22 shows that Yeshua did know the Scriptures quite well
  3. The opening verse of the Torah, Genesis 1:1, shows that the first thing God chose to reveal to us is:

    1. He is the creator of the universe. Correct
    2. Heaven and earth were made on the same day. Incorrect: God revealed the order in which the world came into being throughout the whole chapter (Genesis 1:1-31), but the Torah begins by announcing that it’s by God’s desire and power that we (and the rest of the universe) exist.
  4. The point of Genesis 1:27 is that:

    1. Men came first in the order of creation Incorrect: Genesis 2:20–23 tells us that the first man was created before the first woman, but the emphasis in Genesis 1:27 is that both genders were created "in God’s image."
    2. God created human beings to reflect who he is Correct
  5. Jeremiah 32:27 is a reminder that God:

    1. is all powerful and can reverse the course of human government Correct
    2. is not interested in earthly governments Incorrect: much of this prophetic book consists of God’s warnings about what the nations will do to Israel, and promises of how God will ultimately rescue and restore Israel
  6. When, in Luke 1:37 an angel announced that "nothing is impossible with God" it was:

    1. a prediction that God would deliver Israel from Roman oppression Incorrect: though the preceding verses (Luke 1:31–33) do promise a new government, not just for Israel, but for the whole world.
    2. a promise that something that was literally unbelievable apart from God was going to happen to a young woman. Correct
  7. The point of Jeremiah 10:12 is that:

    1. You can show you are spiritual by setting aside your intelligence to believe God created the earth Incorrect: God does not want you to waste the intelligence he gave you; belief in God and using our intelligence should always go together.
    2. God is the source of all wisdom, understanding and power; the amazing order of the universe is evidence of this Correct
  8. When King David wrote Psalm 139:2, clearly he was feeling that:

    1. God was far away Incorrect: though the verse alludes to distance, or "from afar" God is unlimited in his ability to pay attention to and understand us, no matter where we are.
    2. Wherever David went, God knew every detail of his life, and understood all his thoughts Correct
  9. In Exodus 34:6 when God revealed Himself to Moses, he described himself as compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness because he wanted Moses to know that:

    1. God does not judge people Incorrect: GodR’s righteousness requires him to pronounce judgment on evil, plus his care for us includes wanting something better for us when we err
    2. God’s love compels him to offer everyone eternal life on his (God’s) own terms, that is, through his son, Yeshua Correct
  10. John 3:16 is a promise that:

    1. God’s love compels him to give everyone eternal life Incorrect: God’s offer is for everyone, but the gift is for those who receive the offer
    2. God’s love compels him to offer everyone eternal life on his (God’s) own terms, that is, through his son, Yeshua Correct
  11. Daniel 9:9 teaches that when God forgives, it is because:

    1. our wrongs may seem big to us, but from his perspective they are small and petty Incorrect: Deuteronomy 9:7 shows that God takes rebellion against him—that is, exalting our own understanding or will above his—as cause for great wrath.
    2. it is his nature to be merciful and forgiving Correct
  12. When Jesus celebrated the seder with His followers and said the cup they were about to drink was, "my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:28) he was telling them:

    1. They had been celebrating the exodus from Egypt for long enough, now it was time to mourn for the terrible thing that was about to happen to Jesus. Incorrect:Jesus wanted his disciples to understand his story from the context of Passover, a holiday which he very much wanted to celebrate with his closest friends. (see Luke 22:15)
    2. that what was about to happen to him had everything to do with the price of redemption, and that God had been revealing what that redemption would look like through Israel’s exodus from Egypt, as well as through Israel’s prophets Correct – See Jeremiah 31:31
