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?
+1

Mar 13, 2018
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.

Rebekah should be accepted for Rebecca as well. Both are used but Rebekah is more commonly used in English translations, including the KJV.

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 :)

Wow! Solomon had 300; Muslims can have up to four and the rest of the world is limited to one (at a time). No wonder there's so much adultery in the world!

Elisha didn't have twice Elijahs power he had twice his BLESSING. Elijah didn't have any power himself. it was Gods power working through him

Not having much hair myself, my favorite demonstration of Elisha's power (or influence) are Bible verses 2 Kings 2, 23-24. Justice is served!

@theguy316: I was going to make this comment but then I saw yours. I agree completely. The same goes for any of the desciples that healed the sick. They didn't have the power themselves. God worked through them to do these great works.

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').

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.
