Favorite Verse from John
Dana Warnock – John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Colton Bononi – John 7:49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.”

Connor O’Keefe – John 9:34 To this they replied, “You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!” And they threw him out.

Rebekah Welesko – John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

What opportunities has your team had to use Bible Quiz outside of the church?
Being involved in Bible Quiz in general, and being able to recite Scripture verses in particular, have created constant opportunities to witness to family, friends and classmates.
