Meet the four contestants from this episode:

Anna is from Pennsylvania and she graduated college at the age of 18. She loves reading (especially older books), cooking, and babysitting. Anna says that Bible Bee has helped her learn more than she thought possible.

Elissa is from Ohio and has an identical twin with whom she enjoyed pranking people when they were younger. She has been doing BB from the beginning and loves immersing herself in the Scriptures.

Luke is from Oregon and has been playing the violin since he was 4 years old. He is very interested in veterinary work and farming and has participated in BB since the beginning.  

Kaitlyn is from California and likes sewing, baking, and card making. She enjoys studying God’s word with her family and says she has met many new friends and formed new bonds through the Bible Bee.


Each contestant recited three passages of Scripture and answered three knowledge questions.

Hardest question:
 Question: Nahum said that Lebanon and what other two countries would receive God’s omnipotence?
Answer: Bashan and Carmel.

 Favorite verse:
 “I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest. I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation. Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me. Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me. Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil. Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha. Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.”

Ps. 40:1-17 


The two contestants with the highest scores, Elissa and Anna, will advance to the semi-final round.  
Kaitlyn and Luke are still eligible for a producer’s wild card spot.

Congratulations to all four of the contestants!
