Bible Jeopardy
Copy the following chart of categories and points on a large dry-erase board.  (You may choose to use only 10 to 50 in the game, and if the teams want to play again, you can use the harder questions 60 to 100.)  Divide into 2 or 3 teams and choose a Captain for each team.  All the players on the team may help with the answers, but the Captain is the speaker for the final answer.  A time-keeper may help to keep the game moving quickly.  Team 1 chooses a category and begins with the easiest question (10 points) in that category.  The score-keeper reads the clues from the lists provided and awards points for each correct answer.  (Erase the points from the chart so everyone will see which questions have been answered.)  After each correct or incorrect answer, play moves to the next team, who chooses which category they prefer, working from the easy questions (10 points) to the harder questions (100 points).  (To make the points more even use an odd number of questions, by omitting the 10 point or 100 point questions.) These questions and answers are from the King James Version of the Bible.  If you use another version, you may wish to verify the wording beforehand. ** Teams may get double or triple points for correct answers to those specially noted questions.
