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

Charity: Hunter’s Hope, an organization that, in
partnership with Judson's Legacy, raises awareness

The Horns of Jericho

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!
LET THE CHALLENGE COMMENCE!
Our first round is called.....
MY TWEET LORD.
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....
THE EYE OF THE TEBOW
It's actually a fill in the blank statement. 25 if you can find out
"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
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
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...
KIDS SAYETH THE CUTEST THINGS
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
Your next round is....
CSI: HOLY LAND
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
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 CHOSEN THREE
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.
They get net and yeast, but the servant one is....wrong! The 3rd one
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
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
ANIMALS OF THE BIBLE
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
