Beach (Bible) Boys

While you are packing your swim trunks and stocking up on sun screen, see if you can name these famous bodies of water. Oh, and you can use these as diving boards (spring boards, get it? It’s a joke) for witnessing situations while waiting in line for smoothies, or the high-dive, or while floating in the lazy river:

1) Jesus told a blind man to wash in this pool and receive sight.
2) Naaman “dipped” in this river and was healed of leprosy.
3) Daniel saw a vision of a ram in this river.
4) Ezekiel saw visions of God here.
5) Elijah slew the prophets of Baal near this brook.
6) Moses led the Israelite through dry land to this sea.
7) Another name for the Sea of Galilee.
8) A river that flows out of Eden.
9) The water here was bitter.
10) Seraiah was commanded to read a book and cast it into this river.
11) Jesus taught in a ship in this body of water.

Almost two weeks ago I posted "Bows and Arrows". Were you able to identify the following people from the Bible? Who . . .

1) . . . was the first archer mentioned? Ishmael (Gen 16:15, 21:20)
2) . . . was wounded by archers, then asked his armor-bearer to kill him with a sword? Saul (1 Sam 31:3-4)
3) . . . shot an arrow as a warning signal for his friend to flee? Jonathan (1 Sam 20:33-42)
4) . . . was hit by an arrow at random, then died? Ahab (1 Kings 22:34)
5) . . . was hit by archers and died in Jerusalem? Josiah (2 Chron 35:23-24)
6) . . . said that his condition was like being surrounded by archers? Job (Job 16:13)
7) . . . was angry when the king struck the ground three times with an arrow? Elisha (2 Kings 13:17-19)
8) . . . prophesied that the king of Assyria would not shoot an arrow in Jerusalem? Isaiah (Isaiah 37:33)
9) . . . lamented over Saul and Jonathan and taught the children of Judah to use the bow? David (1 Samuel 1:17-18)
10) . . . sent his son with his bow to get venison? Isaac (Genesis 27:1-3)
11) . . . reminded the people assembled at Shechem that hornets, not bows, had defeated their enemies? Joshua (Joshua 24:2-12)

I told you all the answers were in the OT.
