Iffy about question 7 because nowhere in the Bible does it state that there were three wise men, so if that should be considered biblical. Also, Moses never reached the Promised Land.

heheh..yeah,i know he did not enter the promise land because of what he did with the tablet of stones..just the Israelites..they could have reached it within 40 days but God delayed it and made them go about the wilderness for 40 years instead..but moses did not see it.......hmmm....and i even answered wrong for number7 too..there was no mention about their names nor their number [that they are really three,it was just that they gave 3 gifts..too bad for tradition..] in the Bible but it was 'according to tradition'..that was quite tricky..hmmm......i thought to change the question but in the end did not...well nweiz, thanks for that........^_____^

p.s. OK i'll change it..sumemasen~~!
