The Holy Bible is one of the most knowledgeable book, or rather, a collection of books written by various apostles over a period of more than 1000 years. We, as Christians, look upon the Bible as not only a holy book, but also a medium through which God speaks to us and helps us develop a strong bond of trust with him. The Bible has answers to every question, and a solution to every problem! But in our busy lifestyle, we tend to focus more on surviving than on living. We tend to forget that the word of God is the ultimate source of eternal life and happiness. Bible trivia questions help you in not only testing the knowledge that you have gained so far about the scripture, but they will also prove to be a fun and interactive way of learning more about what God wishes all his children to know.
Bible Trivia Questions for Kids
The mind of a child is extremely sensitive and can be molded in any way. What we learn and understand as kids, always remains as the base of our thinking and personality. As Christians, it is important to imbibe the impact of God's words into the mind of the children as soon as possible. I remember when I was small, my mom made it a practice to read the Bible everyday during the evening prayers. She said that when you read a prose in the Bible, it is not mere reading, it is nothing but the Lord speaking to you directly. She also made me remember "The Lord is My Shepherd", so that I could recite it whenever I felt scared, this is because I had the fear of the dark when I was small. These simple, yet effective teachings still play a very important part in my life. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and thank my mother for imbibing these teachings and values in my life.

Bible Trivia Questions for Youth
Youth, the time when you think you know it all, and in spite of knowing it all, you learn a lot of new things affecting your mind and perception. Youth is the time when the mind seeks answers related to one's beliefs, existence, and everything possible in your world. The Bible definitely helps in calming down the confused mind and spirit. I remember how confused I use to be in my teenage years. Once I had a fight with my best friend and was very upset about it. She asked for my forgiveness but I just couldn't forget what she did to me. So during my prayers I randomly opened the Bible, and guess what I happened to read? Mathew 6:14 which said, "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you." I believe it was the Lord speaking to me and calming my troubled mind. Therefore, to know the rules and teachings of the Bible becomes really important for the youth that follow Christianity. The Bible not only teaches the youth about religion, it also acts as a friend and tells you how to overcome day-to-day troubles and live life happily under the shelter and care of God.
