Teen Bible Quiz

Sorry, I have not posted for a while. I have been very busy this holiday season. Anyway, I wanted to talk with you guys about a ministry I am involved with: Teen Bible Quiz (TBQ). TBQ is a ministry were kids ranging from grades 6th-12th memorize books of the Bible and quiz on it. It is almost like Jeopardy except you are on a team and the study material is from the Bible For instance, last year, my first year, we memorized Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colosians and Philemon. This year, we are memorizing the gospel of Mark. In a match against another team, there are 20 questions asked three 30 point questions, ten 20 point questions, and 9 10 point question. To give you an idea about how complex the questions are let me give you an example. Ten point question, Mark 9:28 names which individuals? Answer: Peter and Jesus. 20 point question, Where did John the Baptist baptise and what did he preach? Answer: And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (NIV). The hardest, the 30 pointers will go something like this: Quote verses thirty-two and thirty-three from the eighth chapter? Isn't this a mouthful: He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. Get behind me, Satan! he said. You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men. Yeah, rough. Anyway, I hope this video helps you understand the game more. As usual turn of the music before you listen.(We use hand buzzers instead of bottom buzzer in this video, but you will get the idea.)
