100 Bible Trivia Questions and Answers For Teens

Bible Trivia for Teens

True or False? You’ve been assigned to come up with some Bible trivia questions for your teens, but can’t find any fun and relevant questions.

If you’re still reading this then we’re gonna go ahead and say that it’s true! Your search for a fun and easy Bible trivia game can stop right here. The key to Bible trivia for teens is to make it easy enough for those without the most Bible knowledge but also fun enough for those who consider themselves scholars. The best part? We’ve compiled 100 questions and answers so that you don’t have to.

Why should Bible Trivia Questions for Teens be Easy?

Trivia shouldn’t feel like a test or pop quiz. Your teens get enough of that at school. If you want your teens to enjoy Bible trivia, don’t make it so serious. Easy questions make it less awkward for the kid that wants to jump in but isn’t quite sure if they’ll make a fool of themselves. No one’s trying to pass the bar here.

How to Make your Bible Trivia Game Fun Enough?

Is my Bible Trivia game fun enough? Well, yes. Because we already made one for you. But if you want to create your own, here are a few tips to make sure your teens won’t want to sit out on this one:

  • Include funny but safe references that are popular enough to pique your teens’ humor but also aren’t offensive.
  • Host with enthusiasm! Don’t make the questions do all the work. It’s okay to make a little bit of a fool of yourself if it’ll break the ice and make the game more inviting for everyone.
  • A little background music never hurt. You’d be surprised how background music can fill in those awkward silences or keep the momentum going while players are thinking. Extra points if you can find a volunteer to play fun sound effects in real time, such as buzzer noises when an answer is wrong, or a “ding ding ding!” sound effect when someone gets a question correct.
  • PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES! If your concern is relevance, free stuff will never go out of style. Hype up that Bible Trivia game for your teens with some sweet, sweet incentive to play.
