Genesis Trivia


I love trivia, especially sports and Bible trivia.  I don't always know the answers, but it is a fun way to learn.  As we Re:Read through the Bible in 2021, periodically, we plan to post some trivia questions.  Since there is so much that happens in Genesis, that seemed like a good place to start.  See how many you know in the list of 24 questions below.  The answers with scripture references are at the bottom of the post.
