This Quiz: The Daughters of Zelophehad

    1.) How many sons did Zelophehad have?

    2.) How many daughters did Zelophehad have?

    3.) These girls had an unusual request to make of Moses - what was it?
           They wanted to share the inheritance of their father with their brothers.
           They wanted their father's inheritance to pass to them.
           They wanted to give their inheritance to their brothers.
           They wanted their evil brothers to give their inheritance to them.

    4.) What did Moses do when he heard the request?
           Took it before the Lord.
           Laughed at them and had them put out of the camp for 7 days.
           Ordered them to be killed with fire and their bones covered with a huge mound of rock.
           Spoke a word over them and they turned leprous.

    5.) What was the final response they got about the matter?
           Their brothers were disinherited and they received the inheritance.
           They had a share in their brothers' inheritances.
           They gave their rightful inheritances to their brothers.
           The inheritance of their father was to pass to them.

    6.) The chiefs of the tribe of Gilead spoke to Moses about this matter, and pointed something out to him. What was that?
           The sons of Zelophehad would be forced to be beggars if they were disinherited.
           If Zelophehad's daughters married outside the tribe, another tribe would benefit.
           If Zelophehad's sons and daughters all shared the inheritance, it would benefit none of them greatly.
           If Zelophehad's daughters were not included in the distribution of his wealth it would make one of his sons the wealthiest man in Israel.

    7.) What was the answer to the dilemma that arose here?
           The daughters of Zelophehad were to marry within the tribe.
           The sons of Zelophehad were to be fed with the distribution to the widows.
           The oldest child received the whole inheritance.
           The wealthiest son would marry Moses' daughter.

    8.) The daughters of Zelophehad married their:
           leprous brothers

    9.) This may seem like a quaint story with no real purpose, but what principle was established in this story?
           Any person who was making a greedy inheritance claim may be killed by burning.
           Where there was no son in the family, the daughters were to inherit from the father.
           Where the sons of a family had done great wrong, their sisters would inherit.
           If a person's claim was not just, God would blight them with leprosy.

    10.) What other famous woman benefited from it later, as indicated by her inclusion in a genealogy?
           Mary, the mother of Jesus
           Mary Magdalene
