25 Bible Trivia Questions About Good-Looking Men

MsDora, former teacher and Christian counselor is also an avid Bible student and loves to share Bible facts for learning and fun activities.

Michelangelo's David

Many of the good-looking men mentioned in the Bible are kings, candidates for kingship, or prominent figures in the king's palace. Was it that good looks only stood out in affiliation with status? Or, It might just be that good looks in men became more commendable when the men possessed other leadership traits.

As we review the facts (or learn them for the first time), we will realize that none of the men are remembered solely for being handsome, but primarily for an accomplishment or for an outstanding contribution to history. Good-looking men appear even better-looking when we see them striving toward their God-given purpose. Be inspired by these handsome Bible men!

Section 1: Name the Good-Looking Man

In this first section, you are required to name 10 good looking men. The statements are from the New King James Version. You are expected to be trustworthy and attempt the answers before checking the Scripture source. Have fun!

Good morning precious sister.

A very interesting and enjoyable article.

God bless you to be a beautiful woman in His loving eyes.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 13, 2013:

Oh do not worry I will get back to you. I am excited also.

Keep teaching me. I am old of years but young of heart.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

Eric, I'm excited that you are thinking of sharing the quizzes with your Bible study group. The paintings are the concepts of the painters. We can visualize the people whichever way we want.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

Hyphenbird, makes me happy that you had fun. Bible quizzes are fun for me too. Thanks for commenting.

Brenda Barnes from America-Broken But Still Beautiful on April 13, 2013:

This was so much fun. I knew a lot of the answers. Yeah! Thanks for teaching people so much about the Bible in a fun way.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 13, 2013:

That's it!! I think this and the Beautiful Woman one are going tomorrow for bible study.

The really cool part is that as I take the quizes I am transported back. Putting a face on these folks is cool and brings them more alive in my heart. I think my buddies at study will get it too. Thanks bunches and bunches.

(one the race or color part -- I wonder if my students will envision them as Asian like them)

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

You're welcome Frank. Had fun doing it too.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on April 13, 2013:

well, a little fun too thank you for this MsDora :)

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

Levertis, thanks for your input. I hear your insights on the paintings. I appreciate them as the artist's conception. That's why I like to quote the source so the readers would know they are not mine. So glad you bypassed the color concern and enjoyed the quiz.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

Lifegate, thanks for following. I think the best of us get stumped on some of these Bible names; doesn't affect your ability to lay out those powerful Bible studies.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

Lambservant, thanks for taking the quiz, and for your suggestions on the layout. There are two reasons that I did not use the quiz capsule although I don't know if they're valid. (1) I'm not sure how the word count works in the quiz capsule, and I am more interested in meeting the "good hub" specifications and (2) I thought it would be easier to someone to copy. Thanks, anyway. I appreciate you.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 13, 2013:

DDE, thanks for your kind comment. I appreciate your continual support.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on April 13, 2013:

An interesting insight about the quiz on the old testament, you have a well-laid out quiz.

Lori Colbo from Pacific Northwest on April 12, 2013:

Hi Ms Dora, I love a good bible quiz. I did poorly in section 1 and very well in section 2. For the second section you could have saved yourself a lot of time and work by using the Quiz capsule, choosing option one. The way it is set up is that when you get a wrong answer, it will tell the reader it's incorrect and what the right answer is. It is so much easier.

As for section 1 you could have used quiz option 1 also but you would have had to list more than one example and have someone choose. For example:

Moses

1. Good looking, gifted given his babylonian name.

2. A beautiful child, hidden for three months.

3.Not a more handsome person than he among the children of Israel.

The reader can choose the answer and they will be told correct or incorrect with right answer.

I am not sure it would have necessarily saved you time or not, but be simpler for the quiz taker.

This was a good challenging couple of quizzes and I appreciated you telling the readers what version it came from. Nice topic. I love good looking guys.

William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on April 12, 2013:

MsDora,

Thanks for another fun hub although I have to admit I was stumped on a few!

Levertis Steele from Southern Clime on April 12, 2013:

When I look at the images above and compare them to descriptions in the Bible, I see that these images are pleasant looking men, but I do not see the skin being that light. I see indications of brown skin like some Arabs or Hebrews. When reading about how to handle the lepers in the book of Numbers, I believe, normal hair would be Black with thick strands, while abnormal hair color in a leprous sore would be yellow or White and thin. The disease caused that color which was unusual for these people.

Moses was stunned when God caused his hand to be leprous white. Surely God used a contrasting color to convince him of a sure sign that he (Moses) requested. White was that contrast. Moses' wife was darker than he. The character in Song of Solomon was very dark. I do not see any convincing indication that most Bible characters were Black (Negroid) or White (Caucasoid). Maybe some were. I wrote what I read. Now, I am aware that God loves all people. There is much written about that in the scriptures. It is not important--the races--but I wonder why many cannot see the descriptions. Practically every painting I have seen of these characters were mostly European-like or Black African. They do not fit the biblical descriptions.

This is an interesting hub, although I never remember all of these names of the minor characters. I would have to study more to pass your test. Thanks for sharing.
