THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE
Last week, Judson's Legacy took the first of 2 semis and the other semis
have The Boys Next Door, Georgia's Grace Girls and The Food Fighters
awaiting the challenge. Get set for a biblical battle only one can
LET THE CHALLENGE COMMENCE!
The Boys Next Door
Charity: Oasis USA, an organization dedicated to
ending human trafficking
Team Members: Drew Vinson (student); Sam Altis
(student); Matthew Blanton (student). These buddies
and neighbors may like to joke around, but when it
comes to their weekly trivia events, they are
serious competitors. Each grew up as a Christian,
but didn’t come to the full realization of his faith
Georgia Grace Girls
Charity: Hope Center, a charity that provided
Samantha with a free sonogram
Team Members: Samantha Jesse (waitress); Samantha’s
mom, Mae Lynn Biggs (nanny); Lesley Hill (event
planner). This is a feisty group of women who love
God and have each found their faith tested. Mae Lynn
helped her daughter Samantha with her pregnancy in
college and Mae Lynn’s best friend, Lesley, provides
support to the family and is a sympathetic shoulder
whenever they need it.
The Food Fighters
Charity: Foodlink Inc., an organization that feeds
the hungry in Sacramento
Team Members: Stephen Law (student); Michael Chen
(assistant industrial hygienist); Ed Law (business
owner). These three call themselves “the Jeremy Lins
of Bible trivia.” Ed, who owns a window cleaning
business, has always taught his six kids to lead a
Christian life. His son Stephen is a high school
sophomore who is passionate about knowing God.
Michael is Stephen’s youth pastor and fellow
competitor in bizarre eating contests.
We start with...
MY TWEET LORD
More tweets from the Bible and 10 points will be given. First....
1. "@____________: Jesus just asked me to give up a life of taxing
people & to follow him instead. Twist my arm! #NeverLikedMath"- Judas,
Philip, Matthew or Nathaniel?
The fighters add up Matthew to the right equation. Next....
2. "@____________: Crazy dream last night. Fat and skinny cows. No more
bbq before bed"- Jacob, Potiphar, The Baker or Pharaoh?
The fighters wake up with Pharoah. 2 for 2! Lastly:
3. "@____________: Partying after Bro Mo parted the Red Sea. Just sang a
song about it. It's epic and you can dance to it"- Eve, Priscilla,
Miriam or Hannah?
The fighters get the hat trick with Miriam. It looks like the other 2
have to adjust weapons while the choir sings so we can move on to...
1. Who's famous for arguing w/ a donkey- Baal, Balaam, Boaz or Bubba?
Balsam is the answer and the nous get on the board.
2. Who tore down & rebuilt barns in Luke 12:18- Hezekiah, Ahab, a fool
in a parable or King Dale, Jr.?
The boys score again with a fool in a parable getting the girls fooled.
They've yet to get on the board.
3. Who pretended his wife as his sister twice in Genesis- Abraham,
Isaac, Lot or Lazarus the Cable Guy?
The fighters rung in with Abraham. Correct! Lastly....
4. Who killed an enemy commander w/ a tent peg- Jael, Joash, Jeroboam or
Jim-Bob the Baptist?
The boys fire back with Jael and after that last round, it's all about
the men, 75 for the boys and 55 for the fighters respectively and the
girls will kick off the next one called....
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR WARS
Tell us if its a holy city or space place in the Star Wars franchise.
The girls first have.....
it's a Space Place and they got it! Next, the fighters have thus
It's a holy city and they got it, too! Last up to bat, the boys
Holy City is their guess and it is! Clean sweep with a GPS! Next up...
KIDS SAYETH THE DARNEDEST THINGS
We get a video of a kid about 3 men thrown in the fiery furnace, so
let's fire it up with the Girls going first on the subject.
1. What was the name of the king who threw them in the fire- Belshazzar,
Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus?
They get the middle one, and it's right. None extra for spelling. The
fighters want to know....
2. The king saw a fourth man in the fire. What did he say the man looked
like- a king, shadow or son of the gods?
They choose son and it's correct! The boys will close it out with.....
3. What part of their bodies does the Bible specifically say wasn't
burned- their hair, eyes or toes?
They answer with long, beautiful hair and it's correct! After that
round, it's the boys 175, the fighters 155 and the girls 100. No need to
let the sunshine in, because a tornado warning for the girls could mean
they need a miracle in...
THE CHOSEN THREE
You know how we do. 3 answers, all by yourself and if you're last,
you're gone. The boys start with:
Sam: Which three of these Old Testament books have the most chapters-
Job, Proverbs, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel or 2 Chronicles?
They get Isaiah, Ezekiel & Jeremiah and the hat trick is bestowed. The
girls go next....
Mae: In Exodus 20:17, which three of these are you specifically told NOT
to covet in The Ten Commandments- your neighbor's donkey, goat, house,
husband, land or servant?
They get Donkey & house, but for land....they landed in the wrong place.
Servant was the one. The fighters could get in easily with this query:
Stephen: Which three of these are examples of the "armor of God"
mentioned in Ephesians 6- breastplate of faith, helmet of salvation,
shoes of victory, belt of truth, Sword of the Spirit or shield of peace?
They get the helmet, the belt and the sword and plow their way to
meeting up with the boys in the finale. The girls will get $2500 more
for a total of $22,500.
The final showdown is upon us. Whoever gets this will meet Judson's
Legacy in the finals. All you have to do is know this....
BIBLICAL BAD GUYS
So off they go while the Choir sings with the notable absence of Taro
Bando and the Kart Wheelies.
The boys are the first to go, they get......7. That means the fighters
must punch their ticket by getting 8 correct to win....and holy cow,
they wiz through with no problem. They win! However, Minnie's Food
Pantry could still get in with the boys getting one last chance by
playing a tiebreaker for that 3rd spot. It's played TPIR contestants
row-style without the models, but whoever cometh closest winneth. Okay?
Here she goes:
SUDDEN DEATH FOR WILD CARD BERTH IN FINALS NEXT WEEK: Psalm 119's the
longest chapter in the Bible & it's the embodiment of what this show's
all about. God's word, & it contains a verse for what's appropriate
right now- "Your word is a lamp to my feet & a light for my path". How
many verses are in Psalm 119?
The pantry get 2200, but they might've gone over, because the perfect
guess bell sounds for the boys with....176. Both of them are going! Next
week, the battle concludes. One of these 3 teams will be $100,000
richer. Find out who it is. My name is Pierre Kelly.
THOU SHALT SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!
