(NEWS) Meet The Bible Quiz Contestants: Scholars, Workmen And An Arab

"The First Bible (Tanach) Contest for Adults is getting off the ground in Israel and contestants who have made it to the second stage gathered in Jerusalem recently. They included the winner of a television contest and an Israeli Arab. Israel National News TV met the contestants who gathered at the Herzog College in Gush Etzion.

The contest is separate from the annual government-sponsored quiz for youth, who reach the final round on Independence Day.

Moshe Abu-Aziz, who won the highest prize (one million shekels, or $255,000) on the 'One vs 1-Hundred' game show explained the difference between the TV show and the Tanach Contest 'In the contest on TV, I was on my own, but the people here are all united, and it is worth the hours of traveling to get here. We study together, ask each other hard questions, and it’s fun.'"
