A Christmas Quiz Answers


Here are some questions about Christmas for you to answer. Try to guess the answers, and then check your answers from the scriptures.

After visiting the temple, according to Luke 2:39, they returned to their home in Nazareth. The star led the wise men to Jerusalem, where they were told to travel to Bethlehem. However, as they left Jerusalem, the star appeared and led them "to where the child was" (Matt 2:9). That would have been Nazareth, not Bethlehem.

Jesus is refered to as a young child. The Greek word can mean toddler up through pre-teen. Since Herod killed all children under two years old, Jesus was probably about one years old.

In Matt 2:11, it states that the wise men brought gifts, and then three specific gifts are mentioned: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. There may have been other gifts, and there is no mention of how much of each gift was given.

Sometimes, the scriptures don't tell us everything we would like to know about Jesus. For example, what did he look like? The scriptures don't tell us. Because of this, we all have our own thoughts about Jesus. This is important to help us feel closer to Jesus. We sometimes even imagine additional things that he might have done, or probably did. When trying to make a decision, we are often told to "think about what Jesus would do in this situation."

Remember to read the scriptures often and carefully, so that you know what is in them.
