Chapter 2, Verses 4, 6, and 8 - Joshua's Place/Judson's Legacy/Horns of Jericho
August 30

-Why did Zaccheus come down a tree when asked by God?
-What is the shortest book in the Bible?
-Jesus served how many people when they fed 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread?

If you could answer these and a bunch of other questions, maybe you got what it takes to win.... THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE!

Welcome to our second ever episode. Last week, Minnie's Food Pantry triumphed and is one of 6 spots in the semifinals. Who else will be joining them? Today's teams spent most of their lives on a wing & a prayer. They are:

Team Joshua's Place
Charity: Joshua’s Place Church, the only integrated church in their county in Georgia
Team Members: Olivia Moncrief (student); Katlyn Moncrief (executive assistant); Patsy “Memaw” Burnette (writer). These two sisters and their adventure-loving grandmother love playing Bible trivia. Olivia is a modern-day hippie who wants to work with kids; Katlyn used her faith to overcome low self-esteem; and Memaw watches over her granddaughters -- when she’s not planning her upcoming skydiving trip.
Team Judson's Legacy
Orange County, CA
Charity: Hunter’s Hope, an organization that, in partnership with Judson's Legacy, raises awareness and funds research for Krabbe Disease, an illness that Cristina and Drake's firstborn son battled
Team Members: Drake Levasheff (college administrator); Christina Levasheff (author); Dean Bobar (pastoral assistant). This highly spirited team consists of married couple Drake and Christina and their dear friend Dean who they met during a very life changing time. They have been rock solid friends ever since, and share a very unique and special bond.
The Horns of Jericho
Sleepy Hollow, IL
Charity: The American Cancer Society
Team Members: Jonathan Horn (music teacher); Blase Horn (student); Adam Horn (student). These young brothers come from a large Italian-American Catholic family, many of whom live on the same street in Chicago. Each has found his faith tested when their grandfather died of cancer, a disease that has also struck several of their aunts and uncles.

They're ready to rock! We're ready to to rock! I'm ready to rock!


Our first round is called.....


You have to identify who tweeted what from a biblical version of twitter. 10 points on the line. Let's begin.

There's one tweet that thinks "My bro is driving me nuts." #AmIMyBrotherskeeper
The legacy know it's Cain and we are warming things up here.

Another tweet tells us that he wants to be a father....at age 90. #Grin&Beren
The answer: Sarah. Smile for one team who got it right.

Last tweet, it's about being a fugitive, but giving psalm ideas. The legacy know it's David. Dance Dance, team Legacy.

Round over and the choir breaks into song and we head into....


It's actually a fill in the blank statement. 25 if you can find out what's missing.

"Do not be (BLANK) about anything in every situation, by (blank) and (BLANK), with (BLANK), present your (BLANK) to God.

In Philippians 4:6, it says.....

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. The place got it right. Next one...
"I can (BLANK) at this through (BLANK) which gives me (BLANK).

Everybody knows this:
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NIV)
The Legacy the points! Here's another one:
"For I am not (BLANK) of the gospel, because it is the (BLANK) of god that brings (BLANK) to (BLANK) who (BLANK)."

Well, Romans 1:16 says:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. (Romans 1:16 NIV)
The legacy score! Next one....
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have (BLANK) in this (BLANK) you may have (BLANK). But take (BLANK), I have (BLANK) the (BLANK).
The verse is...

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33 NIV)
3 in a row for the Legacy! So after 2 periods, Judson's Legacy has 95, Joshua's Place have 35, Horns of Jericho at zippo. Next round is...


After a video, we know about Pharoah's Army. Let's march!
The horns of Jericho go first. The question: Moses' blanket was made of what material? It would be Papyrus and they get on the board.
The Place are next. Grandma to the back and this query: Who discovered the basket in the river? His daughter. Correct for them.
The Legacy are last. Dean to sit it out and watch this: who nursed Moses after he was rescued from the Nile? His mommy. Point scoreth, the legacy!

Your next round is....


Who committed these crimes?
The Horns think it's a queen pushed to a tower with the servants as the perps. The answer may be Ataliah, but it's wrong. The answer is..Jezebel. No points for the horns.
The Legacy have to know a body that hung from a tree with a javelin as a weapon. Ouch. They think it's Absalom and that is 100% absolutely correct!
The Place have this: 1000 philistines killed at Lehi Hill. Who was it? It was Samson. Right for them! The place have 85, the Legacy have 145 and the Horns with 50. The first of 2 elimination rounds start with.....


The Legacy want to go first. They want to know the 3 "Blessed" in the beatitudes according to Matthew 5:
Pure in heart

They get Peacemakers and pure in heart, but Persecuted is.....correct! They got them all!

The horns are next and they want to know the Parables told by Jesus.
Lost Shepard
Olive tree
Proud servant

They get net and yeast, but the servant one is....wrong! The 3rd one was: Weeds.

The Place would lock up a spot in the final round if they want to know: the catastrophes according to the book of revelation.
Figs dropping from leaves
Falling stars
Giant spiders

Earthquakes and falling stars, but volcanoes....isn't correct. Figs dropping from trees is what we wanted. The Place move on and the Horns drop out with $2500 in their pocket.

Now they must go Mano-a-Mano in the final Bible Study Showdown and our category tonight:


Let the choir sing with the notable absence of Grant Kirkhope and the Perfect Dark Spy Groove.

Back on stage and the Legacy go first. After a minute of animal husbandry, they get....8. A hard obstacle to overcome for the Place. A tie would send them to a shootout. 9 would give them the victory. They get...8! It's all tied. Both teams went to a tiebreaker, it's played TPIR contestants row style. Whoever gets closer wins the round. After a tiebreaker query, the winner was…......Judson's Legacy! A big victory and for Joshua's place, it's 5 grand in their charitable hands.

2 episodes down, 7 to go. Another TABC in the books and until then this Pierre Kelly saying....
