THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE!!!
Last week was a week in which one team had zero
questions in the BIble Study Showdown. We hope today's
program won't have any. We got 3 teams to make up for
lost ground. They are:
Team First & Faith
Hometown: Strongsville, OH
Charity: One More, founded by Benjamin and Kirsten
Watson to spread the love and hope of Christ to One
More soul by meeting real needs, promoting education
and providing enrichment opportunities through
charitable initiatives and partnerships
Team Members: Benjamin Watson (tight end); Reggie
Hodges (punter); Robert Brookes (team chaplain at
time of taping)—all with the Cleveland Browns. These
men of the NFL love football and love the Lord!
Watson, a pastor’s son, founded his charity to help
the community and share his faith.
Girls of Grace
Hometown: San Diego & Chula Vista, CA
Charity: Life Acts, provides groceries & household
goods to approx 6,000 people in need each month
Team Members: Cynthia "Cindy" Shaw (Life Acts
director), Elizabeth Samala (Life Christian Center &
Life Acts CFO); Ezraley Samala (child support
services student clerical aide). The Samala family
started a full Gospel ministry to restore broken
lives with simple acts of love, food, and resources.
With this movement, Life Acts was birthed. Now the
Samala sisters work alongside Cindy, their father,
and pastors in this outreach ministry of Life
Christian Center International Ministries of San
Diego. If they win, they'll buy industrial shelving
and refrigerated storage for Life Acts, allowing
that ministry to touch even more lives.
Hometown: Jackson and Covington, GA
Charity: Burning Bush Youth and Family Intervention
Center, which offers positive solutions to youth and
families struggling with life-controlling issues
Team Members: Mike Redman (professor); Rachel Stubbs
(band director); Jeremiah Redman (engineer). These
proud rednecks, bluegrass singers, and disc golf
players are also committed to community
outreach—providing food, resources, and services to
the poor, sick, and shut-in.
So we got footballers, females and......folks? I guess it's a
fired-up game, so with that.....
LET THE CHALLENGE COMMENCE!!!!!
We begin with
We take biblical dating to the next level. 10 points up for grabs as
we open up the baggage to the first dater:
Profession: Prophet/Biggest weakness: I'm judgmental about
foreign cities, but I'm learning./Passions: Preaching, sailing,
walks on the beach after being vomited up by a fish./Favorite first
date: Anything but what whale watching!- Jonah, Joash, Joab or Job?
Ow! Get Back! It's Jonah. F-squared draw first blood. Next dater:
Distinguishing feature: My natural red hair!/A little about
me: I am hairy. I was even a hairy baby. I'm just saying this up
front so you won't be surprised if we meet./What you might not know
about me: I'm a twin!/Most private thing I'm willing to admit: My
brother outsmarts me every time- Thomas, Jacob, Esau or Ephraim?
The Girls give up the twin killing to Esau and it's just 10 points.
Profession: Queen ("drama queen", people say! LOL/Turn-offs:
Prophets who insult your idols and are hard to kill./Philosophy:
Always look attractive, even if someone is coming to assassinate
you./Deal-breakers: I hate dogs, even though they eat me up- Rahab,
Tamar, Sapphira or Jezebel?
The Rednecks make it a 3-way tie with Jezebel. The biblical
Brainbender could change the outcome. Here it is....
What percentage believed there were dinosaurs on the ark-
87%, 47% or 27%?
Rednecks & F-squared fire with 27, but the girls get the middle
choice. The correct answer is.....27 percent and they get 25 making
it a 2-way tie. Moving on to.....
THOU SHALT NOT EXHALE
You know how it works. Grab a straw, stick it in, carry without
dropping and lock in teh answer. Most answers get 50 points. Got
that? You'll be dealing with:
Sarah & Snooki
and 60 ticks is all it takes. And......GO!
1. Served dinner to Jesus at Bethany.
First & Faith get on the board with Bethany. Next....
2. Served dinner to Paul in Jersey.
It's Snooki. The footballers continue to roll. Next....
3. Sister of Aaron
They tried Sarah, but it's not it. So they go with Miriam and
it's....CORRECT! 3 up on the footballers.
4. Gave birth to baby Lorenzo.
The footballers continue to crash with Snooki. Way to go.
5. Her husband had a baby w/ their servant.
Sarah was the one, and the footballers get the dagger in the
stomach. last one....
6. Nicknamed "The Meatball".
Snooki. The Footballers take a clinic in straw sucking. The last one
when time expired was "Sister's name is Mary." Martha would be the
answer. So after that, 85 for the footballers, 35 for the Rednecks
and a dime for the girls. We move on to....
MANNA ON THE STREET
After Jeff interviewing people, it's now 2-player action. The girls
(Proverbs 5:15): "Drink water from your own cistern, running
water from your own _____."
They get splashed with well, and drink up with 50. The Footballers
(Proverbs 20:29): "The glory of young men is their strength,
______ the splendor of the old."
Wisdom was their answer, but gray hair like any senior citizen would
was the one. The Rednecks end with....
(Proverbs 25:16): "If you find _________, eat just enough-
too much of it, and you will vomit."
They go with bread, but no bread on that one. Honey is the
one. We head next to....
THE CHOSEN PEOPLE'S COURT
The girls have a case to deal with:
(The Case of the Sheepish Chef):
P: A Benjamite shepherd
D: A starving sheep stealer
C: The Benjamite caught the thief eating one of his stolen sheep.
According to Exodus 22:1, how should the thief be punished- the
thief must apologize, the thief mut give the shepherd four sheep or
the thief must become the shepherd's slave?
They say four sheep the theif must give up and
it's....RIGHT! Teh footballers have this:
(The Case of the Nickel Knickknacks):
P: A jeweler who asked her neighbor to keep her knickknack
D: The inattentive neighbor
C: A jeweler's knickknacks were stolen while her neighbor was
supposed to be watching them; they later caught the thief.
According to Exodus 22:7, how should the jeweler get biblical
justice- the thief should pay back double, the neighbor & thief
should be stoned to death or since the thief was caught, no harm, no
They say pay back double and double yes for them. The
Rednecks have one case left:
(The Case of the Climbing Klutz):
P: The grieving parents of a young woman
D: An annoyed neighbor, who's countersuing
C: The young woman sneaked out at night & climbed her neighbor's
new building. Then she tripped and fell to her death.
According to Deuteronomy 22:8, who would be responsible- the
parents, for letting their daughter out at night, the young woman,
for climbing a building or the neighbor, for not building a safety
They say it's the young woman, but she didn't do it.
The neighbor did it and after that, the Footballers with 135, The
girls with 110 and the Rednecks hanging in there with 35. Time to do
this little ditty called...
THE CHOSEN THREE
The Footballers want to know the 3 rivers that flow out of Eden
according to Genesis:
Gihon, Pishon, Euphrates, Jordan, Shinor or Kishon?
All they got is Gishon and Euprates, but Jordan.....gave them a
missed dunk. Pishon was the one. The Rednecks are next. There are 3
books in the New testament that have only 3 chapters. Name them.
Philippians, 1 John, James, 2 Thessalonians, Titus or 2
They get Titus, 2 Peter and 2 Thessalonians......2 a HAT TRICK! The
girls may hit a 2 for 1 if they know 3 things Jesus did afetr the
met disciples on a mountain, pretended to garden, talked to
Cleopas, ate fish, healed the sick or visited synagogues?
They get metting disciples, talking to Cleophas and fish
eating.....YES! But there must be a tiebreaker to settle things
once......and for all. The question:
What's the name of the garden where Jesus prayed before his
Gethesmane is the one that punted the Rednecks back to teh country
with $2500 in their pocket. Now the Bible Study Showdown. Everybody
knows how it goes. Your subject is.....
CHILDREN OF THE BIBLE
Playtime is over! Time to sneak them into the classrooms with the
notable absence of Marc Baril and the crash bandits. And here's the
show. The Footballers get 6.......but the girls put tax on the extra
point to win the whole thing with 14 ticks on the clock. $20,000 to
them, while teh footballers head back to the locker room with $5000.
That ends the game. Next week, one last lineup before the second
semis take place in 2 weeks from now. Until then.....
THOU SHALT SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!!!
