In our Sunday services this year we will be taking a learning journey through the New Testament. Every Sunday I will provide Scripture texts for daily reading. Along with that, I will
have five "jeopardy" questions in the bulletin which the reader must find the answers to within that daily reading. Then when we reconvene on Sunday, I will give the answers to the
jeopardy questions. I will also preach from some passage of Scripture we read that past week. By doing this, I am hoping that we 1) establish daily Bible-reading habits, and 2) learn
more of the truths the Scriptures are giving us. Below are our jeopardy questions and answers as we go through 2019.
