When my son came home from college this last Christmas break we spent some time quizzing each other about different Bible-related topics primarily using the tools and resources in my Logos Bible software library. I thought it appropriate that I share here the questions we came up with on the subject of “truth.” (The choice of the topic was actually inspired by this site.) Whether you take this “test” just for the fun of it or maybe for a little added edification, I hope you find these questions and the answers (listed at the end) both interesting and enjoyable.
