OK, I heard from some readers who thought my questions were a little tougher than those provided by the game show. Here are the answers to the questions I shared:

6.  Who wrote the Book of Revelation? the Apostle John

7.  Who did the Lord send to aid Saul of Tarsus in Damascus? The Lord sent Ananias to Saul. Ananias laid hands on Saul and restored his sight. Saul would become the Apostle Paul.

9. What was the name of the container used to measure the manna from heaven that the Lord provided Moses and the Israelites in the wilderness and about how much could it contain? According to Exodus chapter 16, the omer was a container used to measure the manna from heaven provided by the Lord. It held between 2. 5 to  3.7 quarts, according to which Bible scholars you talk to.
