Quiz Team Helps Persecuted Christians
“When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held” (Revelation 6:9).
The Bible Quiz Team of Marion Grace Church in Ohio quoted Bible verses from memory at their practices. Church members agree to pledge 20 cents per verse for every verse quoted.
Carol C., the quiz team coach, wrote in a letter to The Voice of the Martyrs, “Each quiz season the team selects a local, national, or international organization to be the recipient of their Bible verse quoting pledges….The team selected The Voice of the Martyrs for the past quiz season based on a verse from the portion of Scripture studied — Revelation 6:9.”
Read Revelation 6:9-11. For what two things were the martyrs slain? What was given to each of them? How long was it said that they would have to rest?
