Nothing against this quiz, but it actually fits in nicely with a post I made concerning Christmas and Contextualization. Question 5 asks why Jesus was born in a barn. The correct answer would actually be "The Bible never says he was born in a barn." Only that he was placed in a manger. Splitting hairs? Perhaps. But as my post points out, in a postmodern world of ambiguity, Christians can not afford the luxury of being "close enough."
Regarding question 5, it's true that the Bible never says he was born in a barn. However, I really do believe this is splitting hairs. The Bible also says, he was placed in a manager because there was no room in the inn. Unless the manger was outside, it would almost certainly be in a barn or stable. That's where managers are kept.
