Try some of our Bible trivia games to make your next small group or Sunday School class extra fun! Or, use these with your own family. All ages can benefit from digging into some important Bible information!

Book, Chapter, Verse

Here's a great reusable Bible trivia game! Once you learn the format, you can use it again and again. Just switch the scripture verses, and you're ready for a brand-new game.

Game Rules

1. Divide your group into two teams. Instruct the teams to take turns answering questions.

2. To play, read the first scripture to Team 1. Ask them to name the book, chapter and verse for the passage you've read.

3. Award points. If the person or team names the correct book of the Bible, award 1 point. If they can also identify the correct chapter, award 2 more points. If they can correctly tell the exact verse, award 3 more points.

4. Keep a tally for each team. After each team has had an opportunity to identify the same number of verses (about 8-10 verses each), the team with the most points wins the game.

Variations

  • Instead of allowing the entire team to name the book, chapter and verse, require that only 1 person on the team can answer. For each person, ask a different person on the team to respond.
  • Make this a two-person game. Each person lists 10 different verses on a piece of paper. Players take turns asking each other the verses on their lists. After finishing all 10 verses, the person with the most points wins.

Holy Bible
