Good Evening to All!
I have done this a little differently because there are two separate challenges, one with "occupations of the Old Testament and one with the occupations of the New Testament. Instead of doing them separately, I thought it may be more interesting to do 5 questions of each at a time.

I got to looking through my Bible Challenge book today and this Challenge caught my eye. I know you're just dying to know why! LOL! It made me realize out of all of the times I have read and re-read my Bible from cover to cover, I must not have been paying attention to the details. I could answer very few of the following questions without looking them up. So it made me wonder what else I had been missing.

How about you?

Have fun, and....
