How To Play Biblical Detectives
bibles, envelopes, pens, paper
This kind of thing can be really fun if it is done properly and works out well.
Basically the idea is to create a scavenger hunt for the kids using words from the Bible to make up clues. ie. refer to each chapter / verse / word to make up a sentence - (NIV) Isaiah c12 v2 w 1 = "surely". So use a whole lot of those to make up a sentence, or clue, which leads the team to the location or area of the next clue.
So one clues leads to another which leads to another which eventually leads to the end. You can add in a lolly or prize at each clue to add some more excitement to the game.
Be very careful of which versions and translations of the Bible you use. The first, and only, time I have played this game was when I used the net version of NLT which was newer than the NLT bibles at my church. So most of the words were off so the sentences didn't make sense! Double check this, or the game will just be a whole lot of kids running around looking for needles in haystacks!
