The Test!

It's the moment of truth, the test! Last night the congregations broke off into groups and played games but this morning we're down to business!  

The Texas Bible Bowl test is in the same format as the National Bible Bowl tests that were hosted by ACU, Harding and Oklahoma Christian.  

Youth 7th-12th Grade begin with the Power Round.  It is fifty questions to be answered in 25 minutes, closed Bible.  These questions can be over any of the material and is the most difficult round.  The Elementary students do not take this round.  

Next up is Round 1 "Find the Verse," for all participants.  This round is Open Bible, participants will locate, by giving chapter and verse numbers, forty (40) quotations drawn from the assigned text in 25 minutes.

Round 2 is "Fact Finder," for all participants.  It too is open Bible for participants to answer forty (40) multiple-choice questions in 20 minutes. 

Round 3 is "Identification," for all participants.  Again, while using their Bibles participants will, by marking one of five multiple-choice answers, identify forty (40) items (persons, places, things, times, numbers, etc.) in 20 minutes. 

Round 4 is "Know the Chapter - Quotations," for all participants. This is closed Bible, participants will locate, by chapter number only, forty (40) quotations in 15 minutes.

The final round, Round 5 is "Know the Chapter - Headings and Events," for all participants. This round is also closed Bible for participants will locate, by chapter number only, forty (40) general descriptions or subject headings in 10 minutes. 

Elementary age students compete with their score for Rounds 1 through 5 or 200 questions.
7th-12th Graders and Adults compete for their score on Rounds 1 through 5 plus the Power Round for a total possible score of 250 questions. 

If you would like to try your hand at this test here are links
 to the test on Acts and Answer Key:

"Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin,
it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men;
you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”  Acts 5:38-39
