Semi-surprising results from a little Bible quiz.

You know the Bible 85%!

Wow! You are awesome! You are a true Biblical scholar, not just a hearer but a personal reader! The books, the characters, the events, the verses - you know it all! You are fantastic!

In similar news, an interesting little experiment came to mind the other day when NPR was talking about how it was 40 years ago today (well..that day) that Sgt.Pepper came out: You know that "Bigger than Jesus" line from John Lennon? It'd be interesting to poll random folks on the street and present them with two challenges.
1) Can you quote a line from the New Testament, at least 10 words long?
2) Can you quote a line from a Beatles' song, at least 10 words long?
..and see how they match up. At first I was thinking not limiting it to just the New Testament but just the Bible in general, but that doesn't really fit with the Jesus-part of John's quote. And quite frankly, when I thought about the limit of having it just be NT? ...I could only come up with -one- 10+ word quote from it. And I can't even remember what that 10+ word quote was!!

Edit to Add: And I finally recalled what it was. For bonus-point sneakiness, I'll write it with white-on-white. Select between the asterisks so it'll appear (like magic!)

*Let he who is without sin cast the first stone*

Trouble is, it's exactly 10 words long. This is why I'm leaning towards 10+ and not just 10 (since this is a pretty well known one).
