Resurrection Sunday Quiz. 27 passages from the New Testament scriptures regarding the resurrection. Either read them and be blessed, or see if you know which books of the Bible they are from.
A ~ For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.
B ~ An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
C ~ I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me will live even though he dies.
D ~ An angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. Some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. When they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep.’ If this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.
E ~ Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen.
F ~ I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
G ~ Christ being raised from the dead dies no more, death has no more dominion over Him.
H ~ I pray that God would give you the spirit of revelation to open your eyes that you all may know what is the exceeding greatness of His power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavens.
I ~ They show us how you wait for His Son from heaven whom He raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
J ~ It is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.
K ~ For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which He went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to Him.
L ~ We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
M ~ With great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.
N ~ He is the first born from the dead that in all things He might have the preeminence.
Ñ ~ As for the fact that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken in this psalm, ‘You will not let Your Holy One see corruption.’ For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption, but He whom God raised up did not see corruption.
O ~ His Son Jesus Christ our Lord was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead.
P ~ Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
Q ~ He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world by a Man whom He has appointed; and of this He has given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead.
R ~ God has both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by His own power.
S ~ He who raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus and shall present us with you.
T ~ I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ lives in me.
U ~ He was crucified in weakness, but lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but in dealing with you we will live with Him by the power of God.
V ~ Christ is risen from the dead and become the first fruits of those that have fallen asleep.
W ~ According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
X ~ Indeed, I count everything as loss in order that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and may share His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Y ~ It has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
Z ~ Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Happy and Blessed Resurrection Sunday to you all.
