Bible quiz bee set for public school students in Baguio
by Jane B. Cadalig

Here’s an initiative that will not only promote reading the Bible among the young, but will also test how familiar the students are with the scriptures.

The Baguio Character Council will launch on Jan. 18 a Bible quiz bee as part of the activities for the National Bible Month.

City Human Resources Officer Agustin Laban, who is also the coordinator of the Baguio Character Council, said participants will be students of city public schools and later on will be expanded to private schools in the coming years.

Laban said the quiz bee was initiated to promote Bible reading and eventually create a long-term impact on the students to continue reading the words of God.

He said each of the city’s 10 school districts will field three teams composed of three participants who will be asked to give the name of the Apostle who wrote a specific verse from the Bible.

“Through the quiz bee, we will see how adept the students are with the scriptures, with the hope of course that it will create a long-term impact on them. The winners will be given prizes and trophies that will remind them that once in their life, they won in a Bible quiz bee and hopefully encourage their families and families in the future to constantly read the Bible,” Laban said.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared January of every year as “National Bible Month” in recognition of the “religious nature of the Filipino people and the elevating influence of religion in human society.” Proclamation 124 also set every last week of January as National Bible Week.

Rev. David Tabo-oy of the Baguio-Benguet Ecumenical Group said Christians must always do a purposeful reading of the Bible.

“It is a book of information (one must read) before leaving Earth,” he said, adding that these days technology is now used in propagating God’s words. “There are apps (mobile applications) that provide verses,” he said.
