Bible Bee in Crete (Summer 2013)

What is the Bible Bee?

The Bible Bee helps families to establish a life-long pattern of discipleship in God’s  Word. All of the materials and events are designed to be enjoyable and family-centered  as they encourage, recognize, and reward diligence in Bible study, Scripture memorization and prayer.  The National Bible Bee begins June 1st as contestants learn to inductively study a  designated book of the Bible through the Bible Bee’s exclusive “Sword Studies” and  memorize Scripture with the help of their Bible Memory cards. Local Hosts provide  encouragement, support and family activities for socializing and studying.

The Contest Day will be held on 24 August 2013  Tsesmes, near Rethymno.

Who may participate in the Bible Bee?

Youth who will be 7 to 18 years of age as of November 13th may register as official contestants of the Bible Bee. They will compete in one of three age divisions: Primary (7-10 years of age), Junior (11-14) or Senior (15-18). Youth who are outside of this age range may register for materials, but not compete.

What happens at a Local Contest?

After a morning gathering to welcome everyone, the three age divisions separate to complete their Written and Oral Test Rounds. The Written Test lasts for one hour and consists of 200 questions covering their study of the designated book of the Bible and Bible Memory passage comprehension questions. During the Oral Test, contestants recite up to 20 passages in 10 minutes in front of two Judges who grade their recitations. Parents are welcome to observe their child’s Oral Test as well.

Why participate in the Bible Bee?

The greatest reward of being a part of the Bible Bee is experiencing your family drawing closer to the Lord and closer to one another as you study the Bible, memorize God’s Word and pray together. As you pursue family discipleship through the Bible Bee, you will likely meet many other like-minded families and have tons of fun along the way!
