Rules and regulations

 

The Championship is based upon questions from the Old and New Testament.

 

The competition teams will consist of 4 members. Number of teams from any country is not limited.

 

The Championship can be attended by any participant who has reached the age of 16 in the year of the Championship. Written questions and quotations will be in national languages of the participating teams. We encourage to organize national championships in the Bible knowledge. Although this is not an obligatory condition for participation in the International Bible Championship Jerusalem Prague 2018. 

In each participating nation should be established the important position of a coordinator/s (translator). His/her main task will be to secure translation of the questions from the English NIV Bible into the local language using a local Bible translation.

 

The Steering committee will send all questions and quotations to national coordinators well in advance before the Championship. All questions and answers are marked with the exact location where they are taken from the Bible - therefore making the translation much easier. Translations of all questions into local languages have to be returned electronically in due time back to be used in the Championship. Needless to say that all questions and answers have to be kept in secret by the coordinators.

 

The course of the Championship

 

The first round of the Championship will be in writing. The participants will receive envelopes with 70 questions in their language. For each of the questions there will be 5 possible answers with only one answer being correct (multiple choice method). The task of the competitors will be to mark off the right answer with circle. If the competitors realizes that he or she made mistake, they cross out the wrong answer three times and circle the right one. Time allocation for the first round of Championship is 60 minutes.

 

Each member of the team competes alone, without aids. Each correct answer will score one point. The ranking of the teams will be determined by adding up the scores of all their members. If there is more than one team from a participating country then the one who scored more points than the others from that country can be candidate for qualification for the final.

 

The best three teams will go to the finals – the second round of the Championship.

 

The whole team can cooperate in answering questions which are in the form of quotation from the Bible. This part of the Championship is spectacular and attractive for the media and spectators: competitors recieve closed envelope with scriptures quoted from the Bible. After sound signal to open the envelopes the task for all final teams is to find out as quickly as possible where the mentioned verse is located. They will use the Bible in their language.  As soon as they find the right answer they make noise with a given musical instrument and go to the Jury to show in the Bible where exactly the quotation is from. After that they go to the microphone and read the quotation and two following verses. For the right answer is one plus point, for the wrong  answer are two minus points.

Time limit to answer the question is 2 minutes. If there is no answer from the final teams or answers are given in the very same time, then the  question is cancelled.

 

There will be at least 7 rounds of scripture quotations. The team which will be the quickest to find out the location of the verses in the Bible will win the Championship. The Jury has the last say in the contradictory cases.
