10 Biblical Questions

In the last two days I have transcribed, or reworked, quiz questions from BBC Radio 2’s Pop Master. This piece lists questions that cost me a maximum score of 39 at some point in the last year, and this one is about 80s bands that only had one hit. Here, for a change, are 10 questions made up by me, with a Biblical theme. If you have attended Catholic mass, or read the daily and Sunday missal, every day since 1 January you have come across the answers to 1-8 during the last month.
