2014 Bible Bee Quizzes
We're excited to have live Bible Bee quizzes on Memverse again this year! Quizzes will be each Thursday, starting June 26, at 4:00 p.m. EDT, with a re-run quiz on the following Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. EDT. We'll keep you posted — we may even have an extra quiz in the days leading up to August 23.
To enter the August 21 quiz room, click here [OUTDATED]. You do not have to be doing the Bible Bee this year to join us!
I suggest arriving a few minutes early to make sure you're ready to go when it starts. You'll also want to make sure your Memverse Bible translation (see Account -> Profile) is one of the Bible Bee's accepted translations.
Have a blessed summer in the Word! And please spread the word about the quizzes!
Update July 1: I would really appreciate if you would help write questions for the next quiz. Please submit them via the Submit a Quiz Question page, and preface your question with "Bible Bee: " -- that way I can find the ones you submitted. I will edit the text to remove "Bible Bee: " after adding it to a quiz.
Please try to write quiz questions that can be used for general knowledge quizzes as well. Thanks for your help!
Update July 6: Thank you very much for all your submissions! We have 25 excellent questions for the upcoming quiz!
Exodus 36:5— And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.

Yay! Thanks so much for doing these! I'm looking forward to it. :)
(Oh, and happy studying at college! :D)
I always enjoy the annual Bible Bee quizzes...they're so much fun! :D Thanks, I'm looking forward to them!
Will we still have the normal Bible knowledge quizzes on Wednesday and Saturday?
Yes, the normal Bible knowledge quizzes are still going to run at the usual times.
will there be any reruns of the Bible Bee quizzes? I think I usually will be working on Thursdays, so I'm not sure if I'd be able to join them. :(
Thanks so much! I will try to be at all BB quizzes that I can! =)
Hopefully I can stay up on Thursdays so I can do them too. Because we live in Greece, the quiz would start be about 11:00 P.M. here. I am so glad that we can to the Bible Bee. (Have a good time at the college, Alex :))
The post now contains the link to the quiz room for tomorrow, and a reminder about checking your Memverse Bible translation against the list of accepted translations for the Bible Bee (NASB, ESV, KJV, NKJV). Hope to see many of you tomorrow!
Thanks for putting these quizzes together! They are awesome!!
I probably won't be able to come today, but hopefully the next times! I will try hard to be here but it seems most impossible for me to do it politely, because my parents and brothers are coming home today and my parents sometime around that time. :( :( :( :(
Not that I'm sad they're coming home...
I'll be there!!! (We'll miss you, Hannah! :( )
EDIT: Oh, and tell your brothers we'll miss them, too. (I'm assuming they won't be there either)
Yes, we most likely will be swimming with the Dw.s! :D
Mmkay. The Dw.s should be here any minute...
1. Thanks to everyone who came for the quiz today! I'm glad it went pretty well, with the exception of a bug on recitation questions with some users, which I'll look into for next week.
2. I'm considering another quiz day and time for people with regular scheduling conflicts with the Thursday at 4:00 p.m. EDT time. If you have a regular conflict, please email a few days and times that should work for you. (My email is on my Memverse profile.)
Did anybody happen to save the scoreboard?
EDIT - never mind. :P
Where can we submit questions?
I didn't get the final scores, but this is more than halfway through I think.

Thanks Hannah! Alex got me the top part, so between the two I have the whole board. ;)
Thank you too, Alex!!! I can't wait to submit a few questions. :D
@Alex~ Concerning the update, I have submitted several questions that have not been used yet. :-)
Thanks, Alex! I submitted a few questions.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted questions. I will be processing them soon.
Also, I'm considering a quiz re-run time on Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m. EDT (the Tuesday after the regularly-scheduled Thursday quiz). If you're out there and neither the Thursday nor Tuesday day/time works for you, please email me a few days/times that do ASAP. Thanks.
It says that I have 14 minutes when my watch says that it is 9 minutes till the quiz should start! Is there a problem with it, or it is going to start later?
James, usually the quiz doesn't start exactly on the hour.
I figured that out
Okay good :) I realized after I replied that you had said that the day before. :P
I was going to edit and say never mind but i forgot
We've just added a quiz time on Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. EDT. This will be a repeat of the quiz from the previous Thursday. (We know not everyone can make the Thursday quiz time and want to give them another opportunity to come.) First Tuesday quiz is tomorrow, July 8. Link in post.
I don't know if I'll make it to the quiz today. Would it be possible to see the questions after the quiz? (I guess I could try to make it to the Tuesday quiz, too, if need be.)
Bethany, would you like for me to email you the questions and answers after the quiz today? I can save them in a word document...
Whoops! Missed this. Thanks Emmy - as you know, I was there. :)
The timer says today's BB quiz will be in four hours, but isn't it suppose to start at 12???
I was wondering the same thing
I guess I'll try again at 4
Hey Isaac! We were at the same bee in 2012. :) Are you doing the BB again this year?
I apologize for scheduling the quiz for 4:00 p.m. instead of 12:00 p.m. (noon). I did not realize this mistake until now.
Shoot! I missed it! :(
Zach, you're back! (Hey, that rhymed...) Well, there's always the quiz on Thursday! :)
lol! I'm not on very consistently though, I'm afraid.
Aw, that's okay too. I happen to know there are a few users that aren't active at all except for on the quizzes. You didn't hear that from me, though. ;)
Hey Alex, just thought I would let you know that there was a question on the quiz from week 9 even though it is only week 8. :)
Umm...Did I miss it? What time was it? It is only 9:15 Eastern Time...What time zone are we doing it to?
Nevermind ^ ...got my days mixed up...What is the time difference between EDT and EST?
Will there be a quiz this afternoon? :)
I'm a little confused by some of the comments. What time is the quiz going to be at today?
@Lady L: normally, the quizzes on Thursdays take place at 4pm EDT. Are you in the Bible Bee? :)
But where is the link? Do they post it later?
@Ashley: They updated this post with the link :)
Alex: I noticed today's quiz only has 8 questions...I submitted some BB questions this morning. So if you wanted to add a few more there's some you could use =)
@ Rachel: Yes I am!
I submitted some questions when I heard that questions were needed.
I missed it again
And I have Bible Bee camp Mon-Wed (28th-30th) so I won't be able to make it to the next one either
I thought it was at 4 again this week, so I missed it...Maybe by the time August 23rd comes around, I'll finally have the quiz days and times figured out.
DaughterOfHim97: The Bible Bee quizzes are at 4 pm EST on Thursdays, and a re-run of the same test takes place at 12 pm on Tuesdays. Hope this helps! =)
is quiz is going to be like 2 hours earlier tomorrow???!!!!!!
Did I miss the quiz again?
Thanks for all the quizzes, Alex and Nathan!
Yeah, thanks for putting together the quizzes!
Thanks again to Nathan for running the quizzes. I hope you all had a great time at the Bible Bee today!
Yeah, thanks Nathan - and you too, Alex!!! Bible Bee was great and I think the tests and quizzes were a huge help.
Cool! Thanks, Alex! We'll do our best to help. :)
