On the eve of the Jerusalem Day on the 13th of May 2018 participants from 10 nations came to Prague to celebrate the Bible in the International Bible Championship Jerusalem Prague 2018 (Picture No.1,2,3).
The Christians from Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Japan, Israel, Ghana, USA and Tahiti met in the magnificent premises of the Czech Senate (Picture 4 and 5). They came to compete in the Bible knowledge and also - even more importantly - to celebrate the God’s Word.
92 participants creating 23 teams gathered in the Championship held under the auspice of the first vice-chairman of the Czech Senate Mrs. Miluse Horska.
Winner's team is from Slovakia (Picture 6), second is the team from the Czech Republic and the third one is from Russia.
Among the honorable guests were General director of the Bible society in Israel Victor Kalisher (Picture 7), General secretary of the Bible society in Japan Makoto Watabe (Picture 8).
