Typically right before Christmas, I give my Sunday school student a Bible quiz so they can see how much they've learned. I want to share this year's test with fellow Conservapedians. How well can you do? Please post your answers on the talk page - I will reveal the correct answers in a few days, and will also let you know how the Sunday school students did. --TeacherEd 18:36, 22 December 2010 (EST)
