Post Bible Bee

Time Posted on September 02, 2011 User Alex Watt

On August 27, many of you competed in Local Bible Bees across the United States. On Wednesday, August 31, those of you in the National track learned whether you will be traveling to Nashville for the National competition as a competitor. Today, you're probably either getting ready for a more intense competition or going back to "normal" life. Either way, we want to congratulate you for your diligence in memorizing Scripture! Every hour we spend now establishing a more fervent walk with our gracious God through family discipleship, Scripture memorization, and prayer is of great value and can change the course of our lives and the lives of those around us for God's glory. Paul reminded Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:8 that "physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come." We do not memorize merely for information, but we seek the truth of God's Word because it is a "lamp to our feet and a light for our path," a comfort to our souls, the Sword of the Spirit we need to kill sin in our own lives, and the way to truly knowing Him.

When the Bible Bee competition ends for you, we pray you would find the beginning of a new chapter in your life filled with the grace of God through Scripture memorization and intentional time spent with Him. (Dakota challenges us about how Christians should budget time here.) Consider memorizing a book of the Bible to see how verses and chapters fit together with the larger scope of the book's theme. Some are memorizing 1 Peter to give themselves a fuller understanding of that book which they studied over the summer while preparing for the Bee. This is a great choice. You can check out that project.

We also have been encouraged lately to memorize one of the most amazing books of the Bible: Romans. This book is, to quote from J. I. Packer's Knowing God:

... the high peak of Scripture, however you look at it. Luther called it "the clearest gospel of all." "If a man understands it," wrote Calvin, "he has a sure road opened for him to the understanding of the whole Scripture." Tyndale, in his preface to Romans, linked both thoughts, calling Romans "the principal and most excellent part of the New Testament, and most pure Euangelion, that is to say glad tidings and that we call gospel, and also a light and a way in unto the whole Scripture." All roads in the Bible lead to Romans, and all views afforded by the Bible are seen most clearly from Romans, and when the message of Romans gets into a person's heart there is no telling what may happen.

If this is true, we should seek to understand Romans and memorize it. To see a wonderful calendar for memorizing Romans from September 1, 2011, through December 31, 2012, please choose a file format: PDF or DOC. (Courtesy of the Alexander family - thank you.) At one verse a day, with separate review days built in, you can memorize Romans in just over a year.

Maybe the Bible Bee isn't over for you, and you are preparing for Nationals. If so, we want to help you. Phil Walker has prepared materials to help those studying the additional 100, 200, or 300 verses (depending on your age division: Primary, Junior, or Senior) in the NIV 1984 version. Not only are there documents for each division with the verses printed word-for-word or prompterized like he kindly did for us last time, but there is also a document containing a game you can play. To play the game, you will need to print it out and cut each page into word strips, keeping the strips grouped by passages. Then scramble several (or all, if you're up for a big challenge!) of the passage groups together. By racing against time as you and your friends arrange the verse texts in the correct order, you can learn your verses for Nationals and have a lot of fun. Please see the appropriate links below:

Division Originals Prompterized Game Study Stack
Primary PDF | DOC PDF | DOC PDF | DOC NIV
Junior PDF | DOC PDF | DOC PDF | DOC NIV
Senior PDF | DOC PDF | DOC PDF | DOC NIV

If anyone has resources for other Bible Bee versions, please let us know in the comments and we can post them as well. (Phil expects to also have Study Stack sets created for the new verses as well, and we will link to those as they become available. Thanks for putting all this together for us!)

We are also planning to hold a few more Bible Bee Live Quizzes before this marathon is over. We would like to hold at least one with verses you studied for the Local Bee targeted at all Bible Bee participants, regardless of whether you've qualified for Nationals. Please check back sometime next week when we will have more information.

Update 09/05: We have determined dates for six more Bible Bee Live Quizzes. On each of these dates we will hold a quiz (and maybe a re-run of that quiz) starting at 4:00 p.m. EDT — except for November 11, which begins at 4:00 p.m. EST. Please see below and mark your calendars! This post will be updated before each quiz with a link to it. We hope you can attend one or more quizzes. If for any reason we need to cancel a quiz, we will do our best to let you know as soon as possible. The first quiz will contain material from what was studied for the local competition, so as to allow anyone in the Bible Bee to participate (some Primary, Junior, and Senior verses), but after that we will focus on verses for the National qualifiers with some review from earlier material.

@Rachel - go for it!

Ok guys, I need you to pray for me again 'cause I'm back in the hospital...ugh...yesterday I had a high fever (101.5) and so my mom called the surgeon and he said to bring me in. I'm waiting for another CT scan...we don't know when it will be and then we'll find out if it's an absess or if it's nothing. Thanks for praying!

how do you do the italicize letters?

BibleBeeJunior11 - The comments allow some HTML and you can use the "i" tag to italicize letters. If you want to learn more about HTML, I recommend http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp. However, please use italicizing or bolding very sparingly! Thank you. I'm praying for your health situation too, as you updated everyone on another blog comment.

Dates for Bible Bee Live Quizzes are now available and the blog post has been updated accordingly. If you have any questions, please let us know. We hope you can make one or more quizzes!

Please note that all quizzes are open to any Memverse users who want to participate, with the first quiz containing material that Bible Bee contestants studied for the local competition and the remaining five quizzes containing mostly additional material that Bible Bee contestants were assigned with some review from older material.

Thanks Alex....

That's good to know that my chat went through....but it didn't even show up for me after I sent it :)

I ended up also trying the quiz in Firefox, then I found that it wasn't updated, I updated both it and Adobe Flash Player, and it still didn't work. Just thought I would mention that to help eliminate possibilities. I'm guessing it's some script or something that's getting blocked on my side somehow....

Grace - Maybe try a CTRL + F5 refresh of the live quiz page. Even though we're not doing any quizzes right now, you can still troubleshoot the issue as we think of things to try, since the "chat" area should be working whether we're quizzing or not.

@BibleBeeJunior11 - That's wonderful that you are going to memorize the National verses! Even though you aren't competing, it's still great that you would learn the verses! Also, are you still at the hospital? If so, when you get to come home?

@Matthew - We aren't having a quiz this Friday...right, Alex? We aren't having one this week, but we are next week :) I'm pretty sure I'm right about that; but if I'm not, please correct me, someone :) Your littls sister is so adorable =)

OK - scratch that and put down 'next Friday'. I have a habit of scanning over things instead of throughly reading them, and I sometimes have to remind myself, Read this slowly and actually understand what it's trying to say. Especially when I am reading the Bible. :) I might actually have all the Nationals verses memorized by the 23rd! I had about 40% of them memorized already...

Grace - I was actually having problems with the live quiz on one of our computers too. Today, I was looking into it again. We use Avast! anti-virus, and I had to disable that in order to use the quizzes. Maybe you have some similar software which is preventing the quizzes from working. (It may be blocking access to the particular "port" of the website we use for the live content.) You can try disabling the software and going into one of the quizzes and posting a chat message. If you can see your message then you should be good to go for the next quiz. Any of the old quiz links will work for this; you can try this one: http://www.memverse.com/live_quiz?quiz=2.

SBG and ChiefOfSinners - we could see your chats but it seems as though you couldn't see ours. Can you let us know what browser (including the version) you were using, and also what type of internet connection.

0aeb4024e469ca3f8a6d5da4e10a09b8?d=wavatar
SlaveOfChrist

I tried Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome. I assume they were the newest versions, because all of them were the ones I downloaded back a few months ago when links were given to the websites.

Our whole home internet system is set to the Yellow Pine connection, I believe, if that means anything to you. We currently only have 2 out of 5 bars, so that could be the problem. It's not letting me connect to AquaWillow, which has 5 out of 5 bars. Up until recently we were using that, but we haven't been able to get a connection with it, so we switched to Yellow Pine. That, now that I'm thinking about it, is probably the problem.

All who were on the second quiz - Sorry for my abrupt leaving on the 2nd quiz. For some strange reason it went back to this page and I could not get back on. Sorry about that.

To all who are going to do the quiz: IF you have issues, it may be for the following reasons:

1. You may have opened a new tab or window on your browser. Having more than one window
and tab freezes the quiz for me.
2. For me, Internet Explorer works better than Google Chrome, so if you have the option, I would
switch to Explorer, just to best avoid trouble.
3. You may have bad internet connection.

NOTE: not everyone may have the same issues as these, and these are just a few from one who has experienced issues from these.

You can study the Greek words using the flashcards, matching game, crossword, hangman, bug match and more!! Can you please, if you check it out, star the StudyStack on the upper right corner of the box?

Thank you.

The November 4 Bible Bee Live Quiz link is available! I hope the studying is going well for all of you and I also hope you can make tomorrow's quiz. The first seven verses are Primary National, the next eight are Junior National (four new and four old), the next four are Senior National, and the last verse is a Primary verse repeated from earlier in the quiz.

"... stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!" (Phil 4:1) "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus..." (Heb 12:2)

IMPORTANT:

Hi all national qualifiers,

My family is looking for someone to share a hotel room with at the Nashville Renaissance Hotel. We are one person over the five in a room limit (we have six in our family). Right now we only have one room reserved at the Renaissance, since we didn't know beforehand that two members of our family could go. So now we're kind of stuck, since we have 6 people going to Nationals and only one room reserved. All we need is room for one extra person in your room (who would only be sleeping there and returning to our room in the morning). So if you would be willing to fit one extra person in your room (or in a second room you might have reserved, if you have over 5 people staying at the hotel), we would be more than willing to share the cost of the room.

PLEASE consider this! I'm sure Tammy McMahan will be able to work things out if you are willing to share a room. Keep in mind that we would share the cost of the room, saving both of our families money. If this is even a slight possibility for you, please email us (the Guillard family) at: dmguillard@hotmail.com; or reply to this comment. Thank you so much!!!

Alex: Thanks for the quizzes. There is a problem that I wanted to let you know about. My computer that I was using kept logging me out. I don't know why it did that but I kept having to log back in. I don't think it happened to anyone else so it could be that it is just my computer not anything with the site...but I wanted to let you know. Thanks for all your work on these quizzes. Sorry, I know that I am supposed to use the feedback section but since I don't have a getsatisfiction account this is the only place I can ask.

To all Local and National Bible Bee contestants out there- What is your favorite thing about the Bible Bee? Do you have a personal testimony about it? I am in the process of putting together a Bible Bee display board for our local project fair, and I only have 3 testimonies so far. Thanks!

@Sarah Frisk,

Have you checked out the Bible Bee testimonials page? I don't know if you only wanted personal testimonies from specific contestants, but there are quite a few testimonies on the Bible Bee page:

@Alex Watt - About the Bible Quizzes....I'm assuming we aren't having any on June 1st? :) So, would we have it the next Friday, or the one after that (which would be the 15th of June)? Or, are you still planning it all? Thanks for all your work you did on those!

13 days till Bible Bee starts!

Bethany - I'm expecting that it may be two weeks or so after June 1 before we start quizzes. We'll put a post up with more information when we have it.
