The English Master's Ultimate Bible Quiz

Many people would claim to know the Bible... this quiz will be the start toward finding out just how much you DO know, from the genius of the English Master. (Humbly, of course.) ;)

Try taking the quiz the first time without looking up the references given in the questions. If you don't do as well as you hope, take it again and look up the answers for yourself! Don't forget to use the King James Bible - anything else is a powerless counterfeit!
