Kids training their brains with Bible knowledge for bee
The Bible Bee will begin with local contests Sept. 12. The children, ages 7 to 18, will compete in either a primary, junior or senior age group. The testing style is similar to Scripps National Spelling Bee, but instead of being quizzed on spelling "conscientious," contestants hone up on biblical knowledge. The Bible Bee includes a written exam.
The Bible Bee, sponsored by the Shelby Kennedy Foundation, is awarding more than $260,000 in prize money, with $100,000 given to the first-place winner in the 15 to 18 age group.
Jason says that participating in the bee is a chance to grow his faith. Whether he wins or not, going to nationals "would just be a wonderful experience," he says. "I just think that no matter what happens, this has been a great experience because I've learned tools that I would never have known otherwise."...
Psalms 12 6 The words of Jehovah are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, Purified seven times. Psalms 119 9. Wherewith shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed [thereto] according to thy word. Mark 12 24 Jesus said unto them, Is it not for this cause that ye err, that ye know not the scriptures, nor the power of God? Ephesians 6 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Luke 8 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. .... 15 And that in the good ground, these are such as in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it fast, and bring forth fruit with patience.
