License Preparation: Bible Content

How many books are in the Bible? Sixty-six
How many books are in the Old Testament? Thirty-nine
How many books are in the New Testament? Twenty-seven

Where in the Old Testament would you find the ten commandments? (Two references) Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5

Where in the New Testament would you find the law summarized?
(Two references)

I can take this question two ways. First is that the Law is summarized by the two commandments to love God with all your heart, soul and might and love your neighbor as yourself. These two summarizations can be found in Mathew 22:34-40 and Mark 12:28-34. But there is another type of summary of the Law that can be found in the Sermon on the Mount and the Sermon on the Plain. These are found in Matthew 5-7 and Luke 6.

Locate two passages about the revelation of God in nature.
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. -Romans 1:20 (NIV)

Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy."
Acts 14:17
