Unofficial National Bible Bee Profiles  Bible Bee contestants, especially those who compete at Nationals, are notorious for studying one another's "Me and the Bee" profiles.  ("I noticed that your favorite verse is..." is a perfectly normal conversation starter with complete strangers).  Through this site, run by a former contestant, you can not only read one another's thoughts on the Bee, but also add your own and comment to encourage fellow contestants.

For the Bee  Zach, a fellow Bible Bee-er, has compiled an amazing list of study resources on his website.  In fact, it's so extensive that you could just stick with the stuff on his site and have more than enough to study for the next five years (only a slight exaggeration).  Be sure to check it out!
The Shortest Verse in the New Testament  "What is the shortest verse in the New Testament? Did you respond 'Jesus wept'? (Buzzer sound) No, that is the third shortest verse in the New Testament."

How to Study the Bible In-Depth  "While personal, devotionally-oriented Bible study is very important, as is family Bible study, in-depth Bible study by definition digs deeper into God's Word in order to gain a better understanding of the truths contained in it."

John 11 AMP  While I highly recommend studying John in one (or more) of the four Bible Bee translations, sometimes I like to look at the book from a new angle.  I'm currently enjoying the Amplified Bible on Bible Gateway.

Animated Explanation of the Messiah  For those of you who loved our study of the Messiah this summer (*raises hand*), you'll appreciate this explanation of Israel's need and longing for a King.  This short video does an incredible job stitching all the pieces into one big picture.

Why Memorize Scripture--Testimonies "If you are having a difficult time, persevere.  As you memorize, it becomes easier and easier as you get to know God's Word more deeply.  Be it memorizing, reciting, studying, or simply reading, you will never regret a single moment spent in His Word."

I hope these resources have blessed, encouraged, and inspired you!

Less than seven weeks to go!
(And then a lifetime to continue.)

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."

Hebrews 10:23-25
