got everything except Louis Armstrong up through 1935... and then after that everything kind of fell apart. Got Jackson by accident and Bono at the last second but that was it.

It's probably more plausible that he was born in Nazareth, but yes, according to the gospels you're correct.

Seriously, why do you have this weird fixation with correcting anyone and everyone who says Jesus was born in Bethlehem? There was a census that year, where all those in Israel were told to go to the city of their lineage. Which, in Jesus' parent(s) case, would be Bethlehem. Nothing weird about it, people are born in cities they don't live in all the time. Case in point: I myself was born in Alabama, but I don't live there.

As a matter of fact there is no record of a census which required travelling to the city you were born around that time. Luke's gospel places the census during Herod the Great's reign but he died 10 years prior to the census. This story was put in for theological purposes I suppose, so the prophecy from the Old Testament was fulfilled. More than that, even the sole existence of the historical figure is highly debated as there is no consistency between the mentions of such a character and the impact he had in the area (of course, the Gospels are not to be considered reliable sources).

This is a very odd and trippy quiz. But I'm happy to take my 18 and go. One thing though, I'm pretty sure I tried Khan and Genghis Khan a few times. But I guess I must have been doing something wrong, since I don't see anyone else complaining about it.

I absolutely love this quiz! (Even though I only got 12/24.) Also, thank you for writing that Jesus was born in Nazareth in 5 BC. I've seen quizzes on this website that say that he was born in Bethlehem in the year 0.

I know him as Dschingis Khan but since that's not English or Mongolian I tried different variations with D like Djingis/Djinghis and Djengis/Djenghis before remembering.

I'm sorry but if we are going to put Jesus in here it should be Bethlehem, not Nazareth. Almost everything we know about this Jesus figure is from the Gospels, so if we are referring to him, we should go by what the Gospels say. I urge you to change it. Or even better: Take it out.

Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem sometime in October in the year 2 BC (or BCE). The census was ordered by Caeser Augustus, not Herod. Herod died in 4 BC (or BCE), two years before the birth of Christ.

And every question on US sports, of which there are a few, are automatic wrong answers for non North Americans. Total up how many "soccer" questions there are on here and then total up how many questions there are on US sports and come back to us and tell us then who has a valid point.
