Is Ultimate Bible sort of like Ultimate Marvel where they re-started all the major books from scratch to try and clean up certain inconsistencies and contradictions and make the storylines more coherent? If not, then they should totally do that.

Do you mind being a little easier on the spelling of Bartimaeus? I tried about ten different ways of spelling it before giving up.

There are more than one Joseph answer in this quiz. In the Bible he is mentioned with the "of Aramithea" tagline each time. I think it is fitting to require the entire name.

Is there a way to not fill it in for you on easy to spell names? There were quite a few that cost me time because of this. I don't remember specifically which ones, but when you type in Jesu and then it prefills but you keep typing, that s becomes S in front of your next answer.

That happens on many of these quizzes, not just this one. It taught me to pause and look in the box for any dangling letters. Has only impelled me to use the "untimed" button instead of driving myself insane.
