Thank you for this quiz. Might I suggest you include Golgotha and Gagulta as acceptable answers to the question regarding the hill upon which Jesus was crucified?

Golgotha gets a lot more Google hits than Golgatha. If you accept the latter, maybe you should accept the former. (Plus, that's the way it's spelled in the KJV.)

Struggled with Golgotah as well, which is what I've always heard it called in my language, until I remembered seing "calvary" used in another quiz a few days ago. Wasn't able to figure out "aramaic" though, even after trying every variation of what "arraméen" might be like in English that I could think of..

Again confusion between the definition of apostle and disciple. Disciples are followers, which the 12 were during Jesus' time of ministry. They became apostles when Jesus died and they went from being followers to leaders spreading the message. Judas was never an apostle, he was dead before anyone became an apostle.

According to Wikipedia, the terms are synonymous:

Could you change the wording of the final meal a bit? I realise I was being dim but I thought it was asking for what they ate so was trying bread and wine and figured that must have been the menu for some other meal when it wasn't accepted

Any chance you could remove "pilat" as an answer option? I cannot find Pilate's name spelt that way in any language, and it'll save people like me looking up at my next answer seeing it appear as "ethorns" and not be accepted ("ethorns" unfortunately isn't a type-in for "thorns")

My mistakes are only in terms of my language skills about the Easter holiday. However, at the temple question the first word that came to mind was 'traders' which is not wronger than 'merchats'. And 'Lazar' was counted as wrong answer because I wrote it as I know this person in my language - without the '-us' at the ed. I also struggled to guess the correct form of the Aramaic language - I tried aramian aramean and so on...

More accurate title would be myth-of-jesus, since this is based on the New Testament and not the historical Jesus, assuming that there even was one of the latter. Easy five points regardless.

Correct if I am wrong but is there not historical proof that Jesus existed? Not that he was God but that he was a person. Outside of the Lazarus question and perhaps the Sermon of the Mount there is not much on here in way of religious beliefs. Not a big deal, I just do not see the problem with calling this Life of Jesus.

okay I will correct you because you are wrong. There is actually *zero* proof that Jesus was a real person. I'm not saying that he was not. My personal opinion is that he probably was. But that doesn't change the fact that there definitely is no proof. And they've looked. A lot. Archaeology as a discipline essentially was invented by Christians going to Palestine looking for artifacts to validate their faith.
While there are many scholars who have spent lifetimes studying/writing about the historicity of Jesus, they've had very little to work with. The "historical Jesus" that they've constructed is all speculative. The story of Jesus as written about in the Bible, a religious document, is internally inconsistent and in some cases it has not been corroborated by independent 3rd party sources; in other cases it has been proven false. We're all very familiar with this story, but since its historicity has not been established it's more accurate to call the story a myth.

Okay I apologize, I was under the impression that non biblical roman sources that showed his existence. I don't want to get into personal religious beliefs, but I want to let you know that I am not a right wing religious radical, that believes that the bible has to be taken as a historical source. I was just wrong in this instance, thanks for the information.

kalbahamut:...in other cases it has been proven false.

What are these other cases where the Bible has been proven to be false? I've yet to find a single instance where this has actually been so. And no, the Bible does not say that the creative days of Genesis were only 24 hours in length apiece. Creationists wrongly conclude that, not the Bible.

Don: there are hundreds of examples, and yes the account of the creation of the Universe in Genesis is obviously false but I wasn't even thinking about that I was thinking of the story of Jesus found in the NT. One example of a historically inaccurate detail of that story is the description of the census being taken that prompted Joseph and Mary to travel to Bethlehem. No such census ever took place, not as described. For something a little more fanciful, what about Matthew 27:52 talking about "many" zombies coming to life and roaming about Jerusalem where they were seen by many people. And yet there is not a single extra-Biblical account of this event. You would think that something like that would make an impression! Matthew and Luke both talk about a darkness covering the entire Earth at the time of the crucifixion... in addition to being impossible this was also not recorded anywhere by anyone. Not in Israel. Not in Rome. Not in China. I could go on.
