Meet the three contestants from this episode:

Alex is from New Jersey and has written historical fiction books.  He has been doing Bible Bee since 2009 and has made it to Nationals five of those years.  For him, "Nationals is always a challenge, but it's always really good!"

Hannah is from New York and has memorized ten books of the Bible, including Ruth and Ecclesiastes.  When she's not memorizing Scripture, she enjoys playing piano and cooking in the kitchen.  Hannah has also been doing Bible Bee since it started.

Courtney is from Texas; she enjoys studying family history and talking to her ancestors.  Courtney realizes that the verses are a treasure; the competition isn’t the most important, so you won’t be sorry.

Nathaniel is from Pennsylvania and he likes reading deep theological books, which pretty much means any book that his siblings aren't willing to read.  Some of his favorite authors are R.C. Sproul and John Piper.  Nathaniel knows that if you're not right with God, nothing else matters. 

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

Hardest question:
Question: Which King of Israel confessed that no one can flee from God?
Answer: David
Favorite verse:
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
and whose sins are covered;
Romans 4:7

Typically, the two contestants with the highest scores advance to the semi-final round; however, in this round, there was a tie for second place! Thus, Alex, Courtney and Nathaniel all advanced.  Hannah is still eligible for a producer's wildcard position in the semi-final competition.
Congratulations to all four of the contestants!
