Some of the games can be played in teams. For example, line up each team in a row. After asking a question, the first person in the row tries to be the first one to answer. If the person answers correctly, the person goes to the back of the row and everyone moves up so that a new person is in front. The first team in which the original person arrives at the front is the winner. A variation is to have the people move in the opposite direction when the person in front gives the wrong answer. Be sensitive to the fact that a player may be embarrassed about lack of Bible knowledge if he/she plays as an individual.
Make up rules suitable for your group. The following are some ideas:
Give each team a question or read a question and see which team can answer it first. In some cases multiple choice will make the game more fun.
Talk about the verses:
