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.”


“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’”
