What is Children's Quizzing Bible study?
It is a Bible study intended for children ages 6-12 or in 1st-6th grade. Each study has 20 lessons (called Dig Sites) dedicated to the study of an entire book(s) of the Bible. This Bible study provides the body of information that is used as the basis for children's quizzing competition.
What are the books in the Children's Quizzing Bible study series?
Studies in Matthew (2017-18)
Studies in Acts (2018-19)
Studies in Genesis (2019-20)
Studies in Exodus (2020-21)
Studies in Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (2021-22)
Studies in 1 & 2 Samuel (2022-23)
Why were the above books chosen?
These six books were chosen because together they give the overall chronology of God's chosen people, the Israelites, and a "snapshot" of the Bible.
  • The series begins with the Creation account, the first people, and the Patriarchs (Genesis).
  • It continues with the Israelites living in and leaving Egypt (Exodus), and follows them as they establish themselves in Canaan (Joshua, Judges, & Ruth, and 1 & 2 Samuel).
  • The two New Testament books center on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Matthew), and tell how the gospel of salvation came to the Gentiles (Acts).
How does this Bible study work?
Studies in Matthew is a Bible study kid's style! There are major lesson sections dedicated to active learning. Kids get into Matthew and learn what the Bible says. Activities are specifically geared to help children immerse themselves in the ancient world, learning what life was like for Jesus and His disciples. Each week children build their spiritual vocabulary as they incorporate FAITH WORDS into their everyday lives. Characteristics of God are revealed in each weekly Dig Site to help children learn who God is, what He is like, and how He interacts with people. 
What is the theme of Studies in Matthew?
Go and Make Disciples is the theme for Studies in Matthew. Through inductive Bible study and fun activities, Dr. Digalot and Canteen "time warp" back to Bible times and travel with Jesus as He teaches about the kingdom of God. Kids will learn the importance of following Jesus and sharing their faith with others! 

Along the way, Dr. Digalot and Canteen discover all Jesus did for us!
Will there be a new theme each year?
Yes. Each of the six years of Children's Quizzing Bible study includes a new theme and adventure for Dr. Digalot and Canteen the Camel.
