A Quiz on the Atonement

The cross of Christ and what happened upon it stands at the very center of the Christian faith. “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24). This is the great doctrine of the atonement. Charles Spurgeon says, “To deny the great doctrine of atonement by the blood of Jesus Christ is to hamstring the gospel, and to cut the throat of Christianity.” Thus, we must understand, believe, and celebrate it.

How well do you know the doctrine of the atonement? This quiz is designed to help you find out.

If you would like to take this quiz in a paper format or to share it with a group, I have made it and the other theological quizzes available in PDF format.
