I win!

Well, I passed anyway - as a study break, I finally tried out one of the Bible Content Exams that others were playing with while I was on plunge. Overall I managed a 90% on the 2005 exam - which I think is not bad for an Episcopalian, especially one who hasn't taken NT II yet.

The breakdown indicates that I know the things I know (Gospels, Psalms and Wisdom Literature, pretty high on Pentateuch) and I don't know the things I don't know (Pauline Letters and Minor Prophets). Go figure. It's nice to know that most of my weaker areas are the ones I haven't studied yet (Pauline Letters and Rest of the New Testament, although I do seem to know a little about the first half of Galatians :) ).

And now, back to the ethics of antiracism and good-guest-ness (really, is there an actual word for that?).

As a Presbyterian, I find it absolutely insane that someone would take BCEs for kicks! Glad you're scoring well at least! I'm so old and grey that they weren't online when I was a student. I do admit that every once in a while I do go to the online quiz and try my luck....

PPB, I almost said something about that in my post. I can see where you might feel that way. I'd find it completely insane if someone were writing GOE question for fun, but this basically amounts to a trivia game for me (and a Bible one at that!)

(Good to hear from you, btw!)

You do realize that the BCE is the test the first years take, right? These aren't the ordination exams, by a long shot. Although it would be fun if they were, because there isn't a lot of debate about good answers.
