Idea #5: Bible Quiz tournaments, websites, and a movie too
The Bible has inspired all kinds of things, even a regular series of Bible Quiz events where student teams (typically between grades six through twelve) compete over Bible knowledge. “Bible Quiz is a first-class, organized and detailed youth Discipleship Ministry. Each year, over 2,000 youth nationwide go deeper into God’s Word…” This subculture of activities has even warranted an entry for Bible quiz on Wikipedia at wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible_quiz
According to BibleQuiz.com, there’s over 50 years of history, with the first national Bible Quiz Finals held in 1963. The history section of the BibleQuiz.com website has quite an archive of info from past events: national finals, regional finals, district finals, and tournaments. There are Bible Quiz teams organized by denominations, like:
- Assemblies of God Bible Quiz biblequiz.ag.org
- Free Methodist Bible Quizzing fmquizzing.org
- IFCA Bible Quizzing ifcaquizzing.org
- United Pentecostal Church International’s Senior Bible Quizzing seniorbiblequizzing.com
