Book 2: Chapter 6:16 - First & Faith/Girls of Grace/Redeemed Rednecks
April 25

-What made Ezekiel cry out the dry bones?
-Fill in the Blank: "IN the beginning was the ____ and the _____ was with god."
-Who were Samaritans in the bible?

If you could answer these and a bunch of other questions, maybe you've got what it takes to win.....


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.
Redeemed Rednecks
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.....
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. Last Dater:
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.....
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:
Martha, Miriam, 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....
After Jeff interviewing people, it's now 2-player action. The girls start with:
(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 have this....
(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 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 collection safe

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 foul?

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 parapet?

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 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 Peter?
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 resurrection.
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 arrest?
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.....
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.....
