QUIZ for Wednesday, Feb. 7

Fall of Jerusalem, Beginning of Captivity

Wednesday evening, Feb. 7, Mr. Dixon will be substituting for me. He will give you a quiz over 2 Kings 25, 2 Chronicles 36, and Jeremiah 52. This will be a short quiz, requiring only about 10 minutes of class time. After administering the quiz, Mr. Dixon will use the rest of the time as he sees fit.

The quiz that he will give you is posted below. You have between now and Wednesday to learn this material. If you learn it, you can get a perfect score on the quiz. But you must learn it before class time Wednesday. You will not be allowed to use notes or open Bibles during the quiz. I have given you the answers to the first four questions. You will have to read the texts to find the answers to the rest of the questions.
