The Letters of Paul are some of the best known Scriptures in Christianity. They are read and reread by Christians of every age. They are referenced repeatedly in worship services of multiple denominations. They are, in short, some of Christianity’s most beloved books. Christians, however, may not know the Letters of Paul as well as they think they do. Some of the most famous lines have been repeatedly misquoted, and some of Paul’s supposed letters were not written by Paul at all.

While the history of some of the letters may be unfamiliar to many Christians, the vast majority would still claim that they know the content of Paul’s epistles very well. Shall we put that knowledge to the test and see how much you really know about Paul’s writings? See if you can match Paul’s quotes to the right letter.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Foolish Galatian

You foolish Galatian! Who has bewitched you? You seem to have gotten your letters all turned around! You have confused your Colossians with your Corinthians and your Philippians with your Philemon. You may like the sound of Paul’s writings, but you have an awful lot of learning to do before you are ready to face the man who wrote them when he comes to visit one of the churches he planted. You better crack open that Bible again and do some serious studying before he arrives, lest you earn the sharp side of his tongue!

Your result is:

Priscilla and Aquila

You know your letters pretty well, but you still have some learning to do. You could shelter Paul under your roof without earning the sharp side of this fiery apostle’s tongue, but do not think that you are an expert quite yet. You are well on your way to learning about the Gospel through Paul and his writings, but you are not quite there yet. You can keep your Colossians and your Corinthians straight, but you still get a bit confused about your Philippians and your Philemon. Take a closer look at your Bible and keep studying!

Your result is:

Deacon Phoebe and Luke the Physician 

You are an expert on Paul and his writings. You are up to date on the situations in each church he planted, and you know who the ringleaders are of any trouble. You know your Colossians from your Corinthians and your Philippians from your Philemon. In fact, Paul might trust you to carry one of his letters like the deacon Phoebe or to record his words and actions for posterity like Luke the physician. Telling you to keep your Bible close is probably a waste of breath. You already have it with you at all times.
