    9. Jesus healing a blind man at Bethsaida
    Mark 8:22When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged him to touch the man and heal him. 23Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village.

    24The man looked around. “Yes,” he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.”

    Holland, MI
    I was so blessed by #5 Deut 33:27 the Eternal God is thy refuge. My dwelling place, and underneath all of life are God’s Everlasting Arms. Praise you Lord Jesus for holding me up. For when I am weak, you are strong.

    Terri Fullerton says:

    5. Well, it is Deut 33:27. I got quite sidetracked with looking up eternal, everlasting arms and wondering what in the world does this really mean. And why “underneath”? Underneath what? The verse is “The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy before you and said, ‘Destroy.’ “Did you know that eternal God has the sense of “The God because of His very presence is forever blessing? And everlasting refers to power to deliver, support conquer? Well, you probably do. My paraphrase is: Our God, who is forever blessing us, by His very presence, is our refuge and underneath is His unending means and power to support, deliver,conquer and protect. And he strikes the enemy before us with the word, Destroy.WOW.

    2. Abraham’s nephews
    3. King David; Well-nurtured plants
    4. His name is John; he spoke
    5. Deut. 33:27 (it just happened to be the verse in front of me on my desk) Eternal God
    6. Paul healed the father of the chief official. Then all the sick on the island came to Paul and were cured
    7. That he must be a murderer/ changed their minds and said he was a god.
    8. Ezekiel; between heaven and earth
    9. A blind man was brought to Jesus and begged to touch him…and Jesus spit on his eyes and touched him and asked him what he saw.
    10. She had been a mother to Paul.

    This was great! Thank you Beth for getting me dig in my bible and learn a couple of new things!!

    Terri Fullerton says:

    6. I am not very fast at this game. Paul got bit by a viper. “When Paul had gathered a bunch of sticks and put them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and fastened on his hand.” Acts 28:3

    7. They expected Paul to die and thought he was a murderer. And Justice has not allowed him to live. Is this a microcosm or what? He was going to die, spiritually, he was at one time a murderer. However, instead of losing his life that day, as expected, he gave life that day. Sounds familiar. “When the native people saw the creature hanging from his hand,they said to one another,No doubt this man is a murderer..But when they waited a long time and saw no misfortune come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god. Acts 28:4b, 8

    8. Ezekiel. “He put out the form of a hand and took me by a lock of my head, and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem…” Ezekiel 8:3

    4. Luke 1:63 “His name is John”. Immediately he was able to speak, praised God and was filled with the Holy Spirit

    5. Deut. 33:27 The eternal God is your REFUGE, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

    6. Acts 28:3 A poisonous snake came out of the fire Paul was feeding and bit him, not letting go. Paul shook it off and was unaffected!

    8. Ezekiel 8:3 Ezekiel. He was suspended between earth and heaven, and in visions of God taken to Jerusalem to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court, where the idol that provokes to jealousy stood.

    9. Mark 8:24 Jesus healed a blind man and that is the first thing he could see.

    10. Romans 16:13 She has been a mother to me. So Paul and Rufus may have been brothers.

    Thank you Beth, this was fun! God Bless

  17. 67
    Terri Fullerton says:

    9. When the blind man was healed. Mark 8. Jesus had fed the 4000. They were in the boat discussing the one loaf of bread and Jesus says “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod” (vs. 12)The disciples went back to discussing the shortage of bread which Jesus knows and asks them why they are discussing this. “Do you have eyes but not see?” So then Jesus plays this out, I think, in the healing of the blind man. At first he sees but doesn’t see accurately. So Jesus laid his hands on the blind man again and restored his sight. This gives me hope. It is also a little bit funny.

  18. 68
    Terri Fullerton says:

    10. She was also a mother to Paul. Romans 16:13 “Greet Rufus, chosen by the Lord, and his mother who was also a mother to me.”

    Beth P says:

    1. Daniel 5 – King Belshazzar
    mene mene tekel and parsin
    mene means numbered; tekel means weighed; parsin means
    divided
    King Belshazzar was found lacking & was killed.

    Sons are described as well-nutured (or full grown)

    He could immediately speak again and began praising God.
    5. Deut. 33:27 God is eternal and He is our refuge.
    (This may be my #3 SSMT verse!)
    6. Acts 28 – On Malta, Paul was bitten by a poisonous
    snake, but was not hurt.
    7. The people thought he was a murderer getting his just
    reward (when bitten) and a god (when not harmed).
    8. Ezekiel 8 – Ezekiel had the dream that he was taken by
    his hair to Jerusalem and, in the air, toured all of
    the bad being done all over the temple.

Eternal 2. Refuge 3. Dwelling place. This was Moshe’s blessing upon all of Israel after he had just blessed the tribes individually, right before his death.

    6. What extraordinary thing happened on the island of Malta in the New Testament?
    ~After being shipwrecked and landing on this island, a viper bit Paul, but there was no harm to him. Paul not only healed the father-in-law of the cheif official by laying hands on him, but also healed the rest of the sick among the Islanders. (Acts 28)

    7. In the same set of Scriptures you used for #6, what two erroneous assumptions did the islanders make about the Apostle Paul?
    ~they first assumed he was a murderer, (vs. 4) and then they changed their minds and said that he was a god (vs. 6)

    8. What Old Testament prophet was picked up by a lock of his hair and where was he suspended?
    ~ Ezekiel was suspended between earth and heaven ( Ezekiel 8:3). My first thought was Absalom, like many of the other women, but had to go research when I knew he wasn’t a prophet.

    Acts 23:4, 6 When the local people saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “This man is probably a murderer, and though he has escaped the sea, Justice does not allow him to live!” They expected he would swell up or suddenly drop dead.

    Carolyn, Orofino, Idaho
    I’m taking a short cut and just giving addresses instead of the whole verse….

    1. King Belshazzar. mene, mene, tekel, parsin which mean
    Mene:God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
    Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
    Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5:25-28 NIV (I remembered this from the Daniel study, but I had to find the exact words!)

    2. Uz and Buz were sons of Abraham’s brother Nahor and his wife Milkah. Genesis 22:20-21 NIV

    3. David. Sons are like well-nurtured plants. The daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Psalm 144:12

    4. Zechariah wrote “His name is John” referring to the name for his and Elizabeth’s child. Immediately, he could speak again by praising God. Luke 1:62-64 NIV

    5. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Refuge is what He is called. Deuteronomy 33:27

    6. After the shipwreck, Paul and others found safety on shore in Malta. The islanders welcomed them and built a fire to help warm them–which was unusual. Paul gathered firewood, and as he put it on the fire, a snake, driven out by the heat, latched onto Paul’s hand and hung there. Paul shook off the snake and was not harmed. The people were amazed and thought he must be a god. Acts 27:27-Act 28:1-6.

    7. Oops! I should have read this first. They first thought he must be a murderer because though he had escaped from the sea, a snake now had hold of him, and the goddess Justice wouldn’t allow him to live. Then, when he snake bite didn’t affect him, they thought he was a god.

    8. Ezekiel was picked up by the hair of his head by the Hand of God and suspended between heaven and earth and took him to Jerusalem to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court where the idol that provokes to jealousy stood. There before him was the glory of the God of Israel, as in the vision he had seen in the plain. Ezekiel 8:1-4 NIV

    9. At Bethsaida, Jesus healed a blind man. Jesus spit on the man’s eyes and put His hands on him and asked if he saw anything. The man said he saw people that looked like trees walking around. Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes and his sight was restored. He saw everything clearly then. Mark 8:22-25 NIV

    10. Rufus’ mother was also a mother to Paul. Romans 16:13 NIV At first, I thought that it meant they were brothers. But, a mother must mean “like a mother,” otherwise, he would have said “was also my mother.”

    Oh, this was fun! And so easy with searching via a Bible app. I love YouVersion as it is easy to move among the various translations to compare. The only one I didn’t look up there was #8. I played your message fro LIFE Today from the other day that spoke of this.

    I may reply to my own post here with the exact verses to follow the rules. 🙂

    Thank you! Let’s do this again!

    Amanda McFadden says:

    Not sure why my number 9 & 10 didn’t come through, but I copied it, so I can just repaste it here.

    9. What was the context surrounding the man who testified to Jesus that he saw people who looked like trees walking around?
    ~The man that made that testimony was blind, but when he was describing the trees, his eyesight was not complely restored after Yeshua had spit on his eyes and laid hands on him. However, He laid His hands on his eyes again and his eyesight was completely restored. (Mark 8:22-26).

    10. What interesting piece of relational information is tucked into a new Testament verse about the mother of a believer named Rufus?
    ~she acted as a mother figure to Paul (Romans 16:13)
    ~This woman may possibly have been the wife of Simon, who carried the cross of Yeshua, when connected to Mark 15:21. This is especially convincing since Paul is sending greetings to people all over the Roman Empre, which included Cyrene at this time. (This one took some digging, but I am always so excited to find another piece to the whole puzzle!)

    Thanks so much for this Beth! I really enjoy scavenger hunts, and there’s no better place to do one than the very Word of God!! I may even “steal” these questions for some bible study for our homeschool class! Great for keeping our next generation searching for Truth!

    Bible-Trivia-Board-Game-1984-Cadaco-
    Beth, that was great, I loved sharpening my word knowledge. I still have my board game referenced above and look forward to playing it with my grand-daughters when they are a bit older.
    I home schooled my three children and used it as a teaching aid in their studies.
    My oldest grand-daughter is not quite three. For now we play memory games with her Children’s Bible and she will point at the pictures and name the people and event. Her favorite is in Genesis and she tells us “God made the world”. Sometimes this is imparted very solemnly and at times with a big smile on her face! This of course delights her papa and I.
    It is a bit early here so I didn’t write down the answers but I participated in the game. Thank you for the opportunity.

    1. King Belshazzar Daniel 5:9 “Then King Belshazzar was greatly alarmed, and his color changed, and his lords were perplexed.” The four words written on the wall were MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN. Daniel 5: 25 “And this is the writing that was inscribed: Mene, Mene, Tekel, and Parsin.”

    2. Uz and Buz were Abraham’s nephews. They were the children of Nahor (Abraham’s brother) and Milcah. Genesis 22:20-21 “Now after these things it was told to Abraham, “Behold, Milcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor: Uz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel the father of Aram,”

    3. David wrote this Psalm, sons metaphor = plants full grown. Psalm 144:12 “May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace”

    4. Zechariah wrote on a tablet “His name is John” and then Zechariah’s “tongue loosed” after being mute since angel Gabriel came to him. Luke 1:63-64 “And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, “His name is John.” And they all wondered. And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God.”

    5. O Jeshurun, the eternal God. Deuteronomy 33:26-27 “There is none like God, O Jeshurun, who rides through the heavens to your help, through the skies in his majesty. The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy before you and said, “Destroy”.”

    6. To me there are two extraordinary things that happened. Paul was bitten by a snake and did not die, and because of Jesus Paul was able to heal the sick. These short ten versus in Acts really speak to both sides of me. I’m an engineer and a part of me has to understand cause and effects. To hear Paul was bitten by a viper and did not die – without any mention of feeling ill or not mention of swelling… this is astounding to me. Then to hear that a man had a fever And dysentery which Paul healed by laying hands on him… WOW! Acts 28:3-5 “When Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and put them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and fastened on his hand. When the native people saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer. Though he has escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live” He, however, shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm.”
    And Paul healed the sick. (verses 8-9) “It happened that the father of Publius lay sick with fever and dysentery. And Paul visited him and prayed, and putting his hands on him healed him. And when this had taken place, the rest of the people on the island who had diseases also came and were cured.”

    7. The people of Malta thought Paul was a murderer (Acts 28:4 – “When the native people saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to another, “No doubt this man is a murderer. Though he has escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live”), and then thought Paul was a god (Acts 28:6 – “They were waiting for him to swell up or suddenly fall down dead. But when they had waited a long time and saw no misfortune come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god.”)

    8. I totally got this one wrong. I knew Absalom was not a prophet, but I found this verse. 2 Samuel 18:9 “And Absalom happened to meet the servants of David. Absalom was riding on his mule, and the mule went under the thick branches of a great oak, and his head caught fast in the oak, and he was suspended between heaven and earth, while the mule that was under him went on.” How funny is this? I saw that Abaslom was tangled up in a tree by his hair. Seriously who knew there was another part of the Bible will similar circumstances! Well, not me! I see from other posts it should have been from Ezekiel 8:3 “He put out the form of a hand and took me by a lock of my head, and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the gateway of the inner court tha faces north, where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy.”

    9. Jesus healed the man from blindness, Mark 8:24 “And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.”

    10. The mother of Rufus was a mother to Paul as well. Romans 16:13 “Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord; also his mother, who has been a mother to me as well.”

    Enjoyed it!
