FWIW, "archangel" means "chief of the angels". The term is never used plurally and is only applied to Michael. That is why Revelation 12:7 refers to "Michael and his angels." Also, in the 9th verse of the book of Jude, Michael is identified as "the archangel". The term is never applied to Gabriel.

After comparing 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 12:7, 2 Thessalonians 1:7, Matthew 13:41 and 1 Peter 3:22, and then factoring in that nowhere in the Bible is it indicated that there are two armies of faithful angels (one headed by Michael, and one headed by Jesus), it seems logical to conclude that "Michael" actually refers to Jesus as a spirit creature.

Just adding to your information, not saying your wrong at all, but just adding additional, thought-worthy, info: There are only 4 verses in the Bible where Gabriel is mentioned. In all four of those verses, the ancient greek/hebrew word for Gabriel used in the time of writing those verses literally translate to mean archangel. That doesn't make him equal with Michael, however, as when the term archangel in the Bible is actually used, and you take the greek work for that, it translates to mean what your said: chief of angels. The name, or term, Gabriel, meant archangel, but the term archangel itself is only applied to Michael, setting him and Gabriel apart from eachother. Once again, not saying your wrong Don. I agree with your point entirely. I just thought this would be worth saying, as it shows why people do consider Gabriel as an archangel. Have a fine day sir!

Similar to S3AM, I will concede that your points are relevant to the quiz because it is specifically about the Bible. There is, of course, a rich body of literature and mythology about angels and the angelic orders that goes beyond what is to found in scripture. In addition to nine orders of angels, some of these traditions list seven archangels, specifically: Jegudiel, Gabriel, Selaphiel, Michael, Uriel, Raphael, Barachiel. These are, of course, extra-Biblical traditions, and thus beyond the scope of the quiz.

Although not specifically called an archangel, could Lucifer have been an (the?) archangel before he fell?

Cooldrive, Although it's not stated in the Bible to my knowledge, it is indeed commomly thought that Lucifer was definitely "the" archangel, next to God himself before his fall, and that after his fall, actually, Gabriel took his place.

Great quiz, however Solomon had 300 wives and 700 concubines. Also, as previously mentioned, archangel should also be accepted for Michael and Gabriel, although angel being displayed is also fine (just for us Bible nerds) Good job, though :)

Er, 'Insect that plagued the Egyptians' is even more 'Fly' or 'Flies'. True there was a plague of locusts that destroyed plants, but the Egyptians themselves were personally plagued by flies (Ex. 8:21 'I shall send swarms of flies ... upon thy people ... and the houses of the Egyprians shall be full of swarms of flies').

There are some unbelievers who know more about the Bible than believing Christians and that's a shame. There are people with doctorates in Biblical languages who don't believe a word of it. The unbelievers on this site are the type who look for the tiniest things with which they try to trip up Christians and the believer is not prepared for it. As in, "Micah 2:9 says such-and -such while II Peter 3: 10 says this. Gotcha now." God's Word fits together. Are there translational errors? Sure. Is there a lack of understanding of figurative language and Eastern customs. You bet. But they can be reconciled. Also, to unbeliever and believer alike, God loves you.

There are a lot of things believers don't usually know about their holy books that definitely are not "tiny things." And I've never seen anybody on this site attempting to trip up believers with tiny things, either. If somebody states something about the Bible, and another person disagrees with that person without getting their facts straight... that's not intended as an ambush. The first person is just making an observation. If they 2nd doesn't want to get "tripped up" they should look it up before commenting.

It's funny how many times I've heard it said that it's impossible to get through seminary (where priests in training go to study the Bible) and come out believing in God or the Christian religion. I've heard this said by working priests and by atheists who lost their faith after studying the Bible. I think Josef Stalin said something similar once, too. He was a seminary student before he became a gangster. Anyway it's not meant as an insult. (usually)

You've got to consider the difference between going to seminary and simply studying the Bible in its essence. Many seminaries these days are extremely liberal in their theology and are no longer teaching the truth of the Bible, but a watered-down, New-Age kind of universalism...or going to the opposite extreme and taking an extremely legalistic approach to the Scriptures in much the same way the Pharisees and Sadducees did in Jesus' day. Meanwhile you've got people like C.S. Lewis, Josh McDowell, and Lee Strobel who were devout atheists and set out to prove it wasn't true...only to come to faith in Christ through the process, once they could find no evidence that Jesus wasn't absolutely who He said He was.

The fact that you called someone a "devout atheist" I think proves this comment shouldn't be taken seriously.

Then take out "devout" and reread it. I don't know much about history, especially about certain people like these, but I do know what kenobi said is true, and simply because he used the term "devout atheists", a term I actually see/hear a lot, doesn't change historical fact or mean we shouldnt take everything else he said seriously.

Cool quiz, but a couple things: I know everyone knows Samson for the hair that gave him super-strength, but technically it was God who gave him that strength after he took the Nazirite vow, which included not cutting the hair, not consuming anything from the vine, and not going near dead bodies. It was only until he violated all three of these rules (the last one being cutting his hair) that God took his strength away as punishment. Also as others have said, the quiz still doesn't accept Rebekah, which was her name in the Bible. Rebecca is a European derivative, whereas Rebekah is the original Hebrew spelling.

For perhaps the first time ever, I totally agree with Kalbahamut. Baiting people into controversy is not the purpose of these quizzes! BTW: why did Samson disobey by consuming produce from the vine? (I'm assuming that meant wine). There is no prohibition against Christians imbibing wine. Didn't Jesus turn water into wine at a wedding and then, at the Last Supper, did he not give wine to his disciples to drink, saying: This means my blood?

For the freaking sake of living Pete! For the thousandth time I was not baiting anyone into controversey!! I wasn't trying to start an argument at all! How does no one understand what is written in black and white!? Is it against the law for me to hate controversy and agrument? Because that's basically what I was implying in my original comments. I was dreading what could have very well been yet another Atheist/Christian argument.. Kal says I started the argument, but y'know, it takes 2 people to argue... I am so, so, sorry, that people felt threatened by my "prediction", and I'm so sorry that they felt the need to respond in such a manner that it officialy created controversy, but that was their own, self-made choice to enter into the battle field. I did not force anyone to reply to my harmless comment, nor did I intend to, or intentionally bait anyone into doing it.

You wanna know the real reason I posted those comments? It was to prevent argument, believe it or not. I've seen it happen before, I've done it in many circumstances, not just on Jetpunk. When people predict a particular argument, then people won't argue about it. It's a pretty simple concept to understand, it really is. I thought people would understand, and actually try to avoid keyboard warrior brawls, but I now see I was dead wrong. But because I actually do dislike keyboard warrior brawls, because I actually do want to remove controversy from this battlefield-wasteland of a website, I decided to delete my original posts, and with them, most all of the comments with them. Would that make everyone happy? Does that make you happy Kal? Or are you going to find something in these comments to argue about? Oh! I'm sorry, is that considered baiting? You know, don't answer that. Seriously. Let Jetpunk BE a quiz website, not a total wasteland. Fare well, GOOD day, sirs!....... That was fun.

Slug is being dishonest but with the deletion of his comments the evidence for it has gone away.
If you really don't want to argue in the comments section don't post comments directed at individual users (or with them in mind) that are false, condescending, rude, character assassination or just obnoxious. Don't reply to people you disagree with. Don't feed the trolls (always a good policy and why, usually, I've started ignoring all of your posts).
If you really want to take quizzes without reading other people's thoughts or opinions, don't go to the comments section and don't leave comments there. Nobody is forcing you to do that. The comment section exists for people who like to comment. It's not your personal zen garden.

by the way with the deletion of your old comments do you notice how short and clean and non-adversarial this one comment section is? Hmm...

It's really not hard to prove you're not a hypocrite. Ball's in your court.

Just because you misunderstand or don't believe me doesn't make me dishonest Kal... Kal, you don't, have, psychic powers. It is impossible for you to know my thought process when writing those comments, unless I tell you, which I have, several times. All I can say is that I'm sorry you hate me so much that you can't bear to believe anything I say. Everything I said is true, believe it or not Kal... Also, note that most quizzes on Jetpunk that are adversarial are that way because of you.... Have a good day Kal. -Sincerely, me.
