Please submit three short questions using the form below and indicate that it is for the "Outsmart Bart" topic.  

Questions should be related to the Bible, preferably the New Testament, or early Christianity.  They can be trivia style or fill in the blank verses.  Please also:

  • Include the answer to each of your questions in parentheses (Bart will not see these)
  • Include the verse in the Bible where the answer can be found so we can fact check
  • Ask questions that astute listeners may also know the answers to, so everyone can play along at home, making it more fun.  (No Greek vocabulary questions!)

Examples of good questions:

  • To whom does Luke address his gospel?  (Theophilus Luke 1:3)
  • What was the name of the man who recognized Jesus as the Messiah when he was presented at the Temple as a baby? (Simeon, Luke 2:22-38)
  • What was the name of the church father, Irenaeus', most famous writing? ("Against Heresies" - here you would include a link)
  • Fill in the blank - "My Father's ____________ has many ____________; if it were not so, would I have told you that I got there to prepare a place for you?"  (House/Rooms - John 14:1)
