About This Quiz

The Bible is full of fascinating women from all walks of life. Mary Magdalene may not have actually been a prostitute (depending on which historical source you ask), but she certainly wasn't royalty. The Virgin Mary wasn't much more than a peasant. Ruth was literally a peasant, though she later married the wealthy merchant Boaz. Other Biblical women include priestesses and prophetesses, foolish and wise women, and brave and cowardly women.

Some of these Biblical women were surely real historical figures, such as the Queen of Sheba, Queen Esther, and Queens Jezebel of Israel and Athaliah of Judah. They were also queens. Some were born into royalty, while others married in. Each approached her crown in her own way, depending on her relationship with God, her personality, and of course the political situation in her kingdom at the time. 

Esther was a Jewish Queen to a Persian King, who used her wiles to save her people. Athaliah and Jezebel were idolaters who led their people astray. Vashti was the first wife to Esther's husband and refused to play his games even though she knew it would cost her the crown. Meanwhile, the Queen of Sheba met Solomon as an equal and became his friend and lover.
