Practice Questions: Series of Practice Questions to prepare participants for the 2013 Bible Bowl.
Please note that these are just practice Questions.
Some of these questions may appear in the Bible Bowl, many will not.
Other questions for sure will appear in the Bible Bowl and will all be taken from the text of the Gospel of Mark as found in the Orthodox Study Bible. These questions are intended only to show participants the type of questions they should expect in the Bible Bowl.
While the materials below are intended to properly prepare participants in the Antiochian Archdiocese Diocesan and Archdiocese Bible Bowls, to better help them understand the text, ALL questions will come directly from the text of the Gospel of Mark as found in the Orthodox Study Bible.
