National Bible Bee Game Show
Seventy-two young people ranging from ages 7 to 18 years compete for $270,000 in prize money during the National Bible Bee Game Show that airs on Facebook Live at ChristianCinema.tv. The contestants are grouped as Primary (ages 7-10), Junior (ages 11-14) and Seniors (ages 15-18). From each age division the top 3 percent of contestants compete in the bracket-style Scripture-knowledge tourney. In preparation, young people commit to memory up to 840 verses from the Bible in just 90 days prior to the competition.
Previous winner Hannah Leary says the game is far more than scripture memorization, “It’s studying Scripture and being able to dive in deep and understand what God has to say in His Word.” Leary along with Emeal Zwayne, president of Living Waters Publications, and identical twins Jason and David Benham, whos HGTV show was cancelled due to the stand they took for their faith, act as co-hosts of this seasons show. “Watching these young people stand and recite Scripture from memory is incredible,” says David Benham. Jason quickly added, “And to do it with that level of boldness and confidence is truly inspiring.”
