National Bible Bee Competition 2016

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. – John 15:4 NKJV

The National Bible Bee Competition 2016 explored the theme of “Abide” with 1 John as the study passage. Moving from the theme of “Believe”, the 2016 event discovered how to abide in the love and grace of Christ. The NBBC was held at the JW Marriott in San Antonio, TX on November 16–20, 2016.
