Shortest person in the Bible?
Great question! :love:(y)

He might have been short but he sure could climb a sycomore tree! Lol! :giggle::love:

My guess is Zacchaeus. :unsure:

And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

Okay, I had to "google" the answer...........you were being sneaky! lol! :giggle:

The answer is "Bildad the Shuhite" because he was only "shoe height"! lol! :giggle:

Good one! :love:(y)


Job 2:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

I had to take pause with your Bildad the Shuhite. Since he is of the Shuhite clan it doesn't guarantee his height, just his pedigree. (So I almost considered that the correct answer). But upon further deliberation I had to stick with my choice because it pretty much guarantees his height.

That being 'Nehemiah', A.K.A. Knee-High-Miah.:geek:

OK, I will ask two questions: one relatively easy and the other may stump you for awhile?

(1) Who was the first polygamist?
(2) What denomination was Moses?

First, some definitions might help......:unsure:

polygamist - a person with more than one spouse.

denomination - a group or branch of any religion

Hmm...................so, I'm going to guess........

(1) The first polygamist was Nimrod.

(2) If Moses had a denomination it would be Levite because he is from the Tribe of Levi.

Okay, I'm sure those are both trick questions and my answers are wrong so, Chester I'm going to nickname you "Chester the Jester"! lol! :giggle:(y)
