Let’s play a game. It’s called: WHAT DID JESUS SAY.
There are 10 questions. All you have to do is pick the right answer, either options (A) or (B), for what Jesus actually said.
All the questions are based on CONVERSATIONS that Jesus had with people.
Each answer you get right, you score 10 points. If you get 100%, you really do know know who Jesus is. If you score anything less than 100%, then you need to learn the truth about Jesus.
Q1. A man with leprosy approaches Jesus and kneels before Him.
Man: Lord, if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.
A. No, it is not about my will. It is whether God wills or not. God willing, you may be healed.
B. I am willing. Be healed! (and instantly the leprosy disappeared).
Q2. A Roman centurion comes to Jesus and asks for help.
Roman officer: Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.
A. Have you tried camel urine?
B. I will come and heal him.
Q3. Jesus and His disciples are in a boat. There is a fierce storm
Disciples: “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
A. Let’s all pray. Perhaps God will hear us. He alone is in control of nature.
B. Why are you afraid? You have so little faith! (Then he silenced and stilled the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.)
Q4. A wild demon possessed man sees Jesus from a distance, runs and bows low to Jesus and shrieks.
Demon possessed man: “Why are you interfering with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!”
A. Look, I’m just minding my own business here.
B. Come out of the man, you evil spirit! (and the man was healed and became perfectly sane.)
Q5. A paralyzed man is carried to Jesus
Jesus: My child, your sins are forgiven.
Religious teachers: This is blasphemy! Only God can forgive sins!
A. You are right. Only God can forgive sins. I can’t.
B. I will prove to you that I have the authority on earth to forgive sins. (then he turns to the paralyzed man and heals him.)
Q6. Jairus, leader of the synagogue, comes to Jesus to seek help.
Jairus: My daughter has just died but you can bring her back to life again if you just come and lay your hand on her.
A. It’s too late. She is in hell now awaiting the day of judgement.
B. Don’t be afraid. Just have faith, and she will be healed. (and Jesus raises the girl back to life.)
Q7. Jesus is with His disciples and asks them a question.
Jesus: Who do you say I am?
Simon Peter: You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
A. No, I’m not. I’m just a prophet and a messenger.
B. Blessed are you, Simon. This was not revealed to you by any human, but by my Father in heaven.
Q8. Some parents brought their little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them.
Disciples: Go away. The Master does not have time for them.
A. Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, I’d like to see if there are any cute 6 year olds.
B. Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
Q9. Ten men are healed of leprosy. Only one of the healed men returns to Jesus to give thanks.
Man healed of leprosy: Praise God (and he falls to the ground at Jesus feet)
A. It’s not me you should be thanking. I’m only a servant. I didn’t heal you. Thank God alone for your healing.
B. Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Has no one else returned to give glory to God except you?
Q10. After Jesus rises from the dead, He appears to the disciples.
Thomas: My Lord and My God!
A. For the last time, Thomas, stop that! How many times do I have to tell you that I’m not God!
B. You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.
