If you could answer these and a bunch of other questions, maybe you've
got what it takes to win....
THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE
Welcome to the first of 2 semifinal matches. Minnie's Food Pantry,
Judson's Legacy and the Power Team have all known the bible
victoriously, but the stakes get a little higher and salvation had never
been this good. Whoever wins this one will advance to the final show.

GET ALL YOUR BURIALS AT LAZ-R-US
This one is all about Lazarus' death. 10 points up for grabs. Let's do
1. When Lazarus died, Jesus went to visit the next of kin. Who were
they- Peter & Andrew, Aquila & Priscilla, Mary & Martha or Kim & Khloe?
The legacy think it's Mary & Martha and it's Marvelously right!
2. One of the shortest verses in The New Testament is found in the story
of Lazarus. What is it- Jesus wept, Lazarus rose, people gasped or just
The pantry ring in with Jesus wept and tears of joy for the team. 10
3. What command did Jesus say that caused Lazarus to rise from the dead-
"Lazarus, are you in there?, "Lazarus, come out!", "Lazarus, where are
you?" or "Lazarus, wake up sleepy head!"?
The pantry say come out Lazarus, and they come into the lead. So far,
the pantry has 20, the legacy has 10 and the power team yet to score.
The choir will sing about it and afterwards we head into.....
BIBLICAL GREETING CARDS
Let's open more greeting cards in the bible for 25 points.
"CONGRATS! The son you thought was dead turns out to be a high-roaming
official in Egypt! Your other sons are kind of jerks, though."
The man from Genesis 45 thought it was Joseph according to the pantry,
but it got them in the hole. The legacy fire away with Jacob and it's
right. Next card....
"ALTHOUGH WE SOMETIMES complain ABOUT HOW HARD IT IS to wander IN THE
DESERT, we just want to say: WE THINK YOU'RE A Great LEADER...Please
STOP ALL THESE SNAKES FROM KILLING US"
Who did that belong to? The legacy know it's Moses and it's correct. 2
for 2 in the round. Next card.....
3. "With Deepest Sympathy on your terrible health problems while you are
in mourning and financially ruined. If it's any consolation, it's not
your fault. Satan's messing with your life."
The team get on the board with Job. Good job for them. Our last card....
4. "YOUR Majesty's BIRTHDAY deserves to be Great! So here's what you
ordered...a head on a plate!"
Ew. But the legacy ring in with Herod and they close it out with 85, the
team 25 and The pantry yet to get out of the hole. It takes 2 to make a
thing go right, and they're about to with this next test....
Are they Song of Songs or Just Wrong? Let's find out.
1. "Your neck is like the tower of David, built with elegance; on it
hang a thousand shields."
The pantry get out of the hole with Song of Songs. Good for them. The
Legacy are next and they have this....
2. "Your navel is like a deep well, whose waters the thirsty camels
They say just wrong and like Goldilocks & the 3 bears, it's just right.
The power team, you have this.....
3. "I liken you, my darling, to a mare among Pharaoh's chariot horses."
Song of Songs is what they wanted and that's right. Moving on to....
THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF THE O.T.
The pantry go first again and this query:
1. After a serendipitous rendezvous w/ a servant by the drinking well,
this woman eventually agreed to marry her husband sight unseen. Who was
They think its Esther, but it's actually Rebekah. No points for them.
The legacy have this....
2. Who wooed her future husband by sleeping at his feet?
Good thing they stay awake, because it was Ruth and it's correct. The
team end with this.....
3. What housewife was reunited w/ her prophet-husband despite her
misbehavior during their marriage?
Rahab was a good guess, but not good enough to get 50. Gomer, as in
Gomer Pyle was the answer. Shazam! 4 rounds over and the scores are: The
Legacy with 185, the team with 75, and the pantry with 45, but it's
still anyone's challenge as we head into the big solo thing called....
THE CHOSEN THREE
The legacy go first. They want to know......
Which three of these are among the Seven Churches of Revelation
mentioned in Chapters 2-3- Jerusalem, Pergamum, Thyatira, Antioch,
Smyrna or Paphos?
They answer with Peregamum, Thystria and Smyrna and they're
all....right. The pantry are next. They have this.....
Lanett: Which three of these New Testament books have the most chapters-
Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Revelation or Acts?
They get Matthew & John, but Acts....isn't it. You know the first 4
books of the New Testament. They are Matthew, Mark, John....& Luke which
would've gave them 100 points. Time for the team to dig deep. Here's the
Which three of these ingredients for bread are mentioned in Ezekiel 4:9-
spelt, millet, oats, lentils, quinoa or rye?
They get lentills, but rye and oats....aren't it. Looks like they
should've stuck to the biblical Food Network. Spelt & millet are what
they would've had. Looks like the power is out for the power team, but
when you get a bronze medal finish, it's a total of $22,500.
We will now determine the first of 2 spots in the finale. To do that, we
must have a bible study showdown using this subject....
So they must study where the temple guards must gain access to the
championship match for one team. In they go while the choir sings with
the notable absence of Jon Holland and the Vectormen.
Let the showdown begin. The pantry put on their running shoes and
get....2. Which means the legacy can breathe easy for another 20K if
they get 3 right. And boy, they used brooms to sweep them off into the
finals. The legacy continue their championship run bringing them to 40K,
while the pantry collect $25,000 in the season.
Next week, Georgia's Grace Girls, The Boys Next Door and the Food
Fighters will all play towards a goal at $100,000. I'm Pierre Kelly
THOU SHALT SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!
