How to Choose the Best Bible Trivia Questions?
Now that I have shared a long list of some of the best questions for your Bible quiz, it will become easier for you to have an engaging Bible reading and learning session. Isn’t it?
But if you want this session to be fruitful, there are some things that you need to consider. And one of them is choosing the right questions.
This leads us to the question, how can you choose the right questions for Bible trivia?
I am here to answer your question. Read on.
Be Mindful About Whom You are Playing the Trivia Game with
Not everyone has the same kind of knowledge about the Bible, right?
While your kids might have little knowledge, your mother may know the Bible well, like the back of her hand.
This is what you need to keep in mind while choosing the questions. Choose something appropriate for the one who will be answering it.
Don’t ask something critical to your ten-year-old kid or something extremely easy to your husband.
It Should Be a Mix of Difficult and Easy Questions
This is something that you need to pay attention to!
If all your questions are complex, it will be a solemn session of Bible quiz. Also, the kids will lose all interest in it and find it too hard to understand.
On the other hand, if the questions you choose are all easy, the game will end very soon. There will be no element of surprise. And the worst thing, they will not get to learn anything new. That is not the intention of this game, right?
So, the best way to make this Bible trivia game fun is to select accessible and difficult questions.
Doing so will keep the fun element in the game intact. Keep aside the easy questions for the kids and the difficult ones for the adults in your family.
When your kids can answer the questions correctly, they will have a wonderful time. And you will be happy to see the excitement in their eyes. Trust me.
After all, you want your kids to learn about the happening of Jesus’ life in a fun way, right?
It Should Be Such That Your Family Learns Something New
Tell me, why are you arranging these Bible trivia questions first? So that your kids and your family learn something new from it engagingly?
And that’s precisely what I’m trying to say here.
So, there needs to be a mix of two kinds of questions. While some questions should be common to keep engaging, others should be uncommon, so your family gets to learn something new.
After all, that is why you plan to have this Bible session, right?
Make sure to add questions that can offer valuable knowledge.
So, how was your Bible reading session? How well did you all answer the Bible trivia questions?
