A Family Shield Resurrection Quiz for You and Your Family
Christians spend a lot of time before Easter learning about Jesus' suffering and death on the cross for our sins. But, do we know as much about what happened after the resurrection?
I prepared the Resurrection Quiz for You and Your Family. Why not see if you can answer the questions below. Consider doing one question per day or per week as a family or a personal devotion. If you are not sure about the answers, Bible references are included following the question for you to look up. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the questions with Bible verses already written out.
Answer the Following Questions:
- How many days did Jesus appear to people after His resurrection? (Acts 1:3)
- Did He eat food after He rose from the dead? (Luke 24:36-43)
- Does it seem He could appear and disappear at will after His resurrection? (John 20:19, John 20:26, Luke 24:31)
- What was the largest number of people who saw Him after He rose from the dead? (1 Cor. 15:6)
- Did anyone touch Him after He rose? (John 20:27 and John 20:17)
- Why do you think people didn’t recognize Him immediately after the resurrection? (Luke 24:13-16)
- List and discuss some of the people who saw Him after the resurrection. (Luke 24:18, John 20:17)
- What were some of the last words the Bible records that Christ spoke before His ascension? (Acts 1:11-12, Luke 24:50, Matt. 28)
- Why is the resurrection of Christ important to you? Why is it important that Christ rose bodily from the dead?
- How does our baptism unite us to Christ resurrection? (Romans 6:3)
- What do other Bible verses say about the resurrection of Christ? (John 11:25, 1 Cor. 15:13, Phil 3:10, Matt. 28:1-7, Matt. 27:53, Luke 24, 1 Cor. 15:1-11, and Rev. 20:5)
Listen to a Family Shield radio program/podcast, After the Resurrection which talks about answers to the questions and more about the 40 days Jesus was on earth after His resurrection.

"Hi Kay, Just wanted to let you know - about a month ago I started teaching your Bible study in Colorado. During the first week I realized three of the women had never been in a Bible study before—ever! We studied your book Balance: Christ Filled Living. I thank God for the wisdom and insight you put into this study. They are loving it and soaking in the Scriptures. You are a gift from God. Thank you."
