What Is Bible Quizzing?
Overview:Bible Quizzing is a ministry that encourages junior and senior high school students to study and memorize God's Word through competition. Each year a specific portion of scripture is chosen (eg. Matthew, the epistles, or 1 & 2 Corinthians) and quizzers will study that scripture throughout the school year. The competition comes when quizzers are matched with other quizzers to see who can answer the most questions about this specific portion of scripture. This is done on a weekly basis during Quiz practice, periodically at local tournaments, and annually at Regionals and Nationals.
How's It Done?In Free Methodist Bible Quizzing 2 teams of 3 compete against each other to answer as many out of 15 questions as they can. The questions are read by a quizmaster, who judges whether a quizzer's answer is correct based on the book(s) being studied. Every quizzer sits on a chair having a pad on it that's connected via wire to a light box, which registers who stands up 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. So the more a quizzer knows, the sooner he can be first to "jump" and answer the question correctly.
Prejumps:If a quizzer knows (or thinks he knows) what the rest of a particular question will be he can jump before the question is complete. This is called "prejumping". If a quizzer chooses to do this he must complete the question to the quizmaster's satisfaction and then answer the question. He has 20 seconds to do each one.
