Spiritual Gifts Review

Dr. Steve Viars December 7, 2002 1 Corinthians 0:

- this morning we're completing our study on the spiritual gifts.


- we've taken the main points we've studied this fall and arranged them in the form of Jeopardy questions.
- I'm going to divide the class up into four teams...
- please select a spokesman for your team.

- since we don't have a buzzer system, we're going to rotate who goes first.
- if the first team does not know the answer, we'll go to the next one, etc.

- teachers, I intend to only have one round, with 5 categories...
- I also plan to have a graduated amount of points within each category, but with no double jeopardy questions, etc.
- you can obviously do this in a much more creative manner...

- the five categories....
