Lazarus dies twice and was buried twice.

Lazarus
Adam?
Cain
Samuel (Saul & David)
If you die to yourself here(through baptism) you need not fear hell which is eternal death. If not (this includes baptism of the will etc) then you will experience the eternal death of hell

What biblical saint died twice and was buried twice?

St. Lazarus. His second burial is not mentioned in Scripture.

Who was the first man that broke all Ten Commandments?

Breaking one point of the law, breaks the entire law, therefore, Adam. Although was not yet written in stone. It was written in his stoney heart from the beginning. That’s my answer and I’m sticking to it.

What biblical character killed one quarter of the population?

Cain.

What prophet anointed two kings who lived simultaneously?

Samuel. Annointed King Saul and then King David to replace King Saul when he displeased God.

Born once, die twice;

Those who are not born of the Spirit of God will suffer the second death, which is the eternal punishment of hell.

born twice, die once. What does it mean?

Those who are born again from above will live even though they die. They will not suffer the second death.

1 – Lazarus? 2 – Moses because he got angry and broke them, the tablets that is. 3 – Cain. 4

Moses dropped and broke the actual ten commandments when he came down from Mt. Sinai and witnessed the idolatry. They were broken so to speak before Moses ever made them know to the tribes of Israel!

Who was the first man that broke all Ten Commandments?
Trick question. That would be Moses (Exodus 32:19)

What biblical saint died twice and was buried twice?
While St Lazarus is the answer expected, technically all validly baptised Christians qualify given that Baptism is death to sin (Romans 6:3-4)

What prophet anointed two kings who lived simultaneously?
Samuel (Saul and David) but also Elijiah (Hazael king over Aram and Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel) (1 Kings 19:15-18).

What biblical character killed one quarter of the population?
Cain is the likely answer expected, but given that Cain knew his wife after killing his brother and given that the birth of women is generally not announced in the Bible, it’s likely that there were at least 5 people at the time of Abel’s murder.

The phrase “quarter of the population” is unqualified so technically it could refer to the population of any region, so technically Joshua would qualify since he kill at least a quarter of the populations of many cities (especially Jericho).

I would say king David who broke all ten commandments

Ryan September 7, 2016 at 10:11 AM

Awesome! I do challenge the first to break the Commandments though. I’m thinking technically it was the crowd below Moses who were guilty of it, hence the need for the Commandments??? It’s a stretch, I know. However, another wording would be “Who was the first Saint (CCC 61) that broke all Ten Commandments?”

Forgive me. :-) There’s always one smarty pants in the crowd.

Keep up the good work. – AMDG, Ryan

What biblical saint died twice and was buried twice?
Lazarus?

Who was the first man that broke all Ten Commandments?
Moses, of course. Shattered ’em to bits.

What biblical character killed one quarter of the population?
Cain.

What prophet anointed two kings who lived simultaneously?
Well – Samuel anointed both Saul and David, and they were both alive at the same time though they weren’t both king at the same time.

Born once, die twice; born twice, die once. What does it mean?
I’m assuming born once, and both your body and soul die; born, and then born again through Baptism and only your body dies.

1. Lazarus
2.Moses–when he smashed the tablets of the Law
3. Cain
4. Samuel who anointed Saul and David (while Saul was still king)
5. The old “born again Christian” die with Christ to rise never to die again
