5/31/15: Bible Bowl III – DANIEL
Though the Book of Daniel has only 12 chapters, the 50-question Bible Bowl competition included a lot of really hard questions! For example:
- What was the name of the captain who was ordered to destroy all of the wise men?
- What was the title for the 120 government officials that Darius placed over his kingdom?
- In Daniel’s vision, where were the eyes and mouth on the fourth beast located?
Parents and pastors would have been so proud to see how well these Middle School students performed! They were a great reflection of the four Israelite youths — Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego — whose character, competence, and conviction shine so brightly throughout the Book of Daniel: “And in every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters that were in all his kingdom” (Daniel 1:20).
Though the 8th-Grade team (all girls) scored 9/10 in the Championship round, it was the 6th-Grade team (all boys) that won Bible Bowl III with a perfect 10/10. Congratulations to Joey, Michael, Sammy, and Timmy!
