SPM Bible Knowledge

From a little seed planted in Bukit Bintang Boys School twenty years ago, the branches of the SPM BK Quiz have gradually but surely spread across the land sustaining faith and providing encouragement to many, especially the young – the future generation of the church in the country. To paraphrase 1 Corinthians 3:6, “An obedient servant planted it, many faithful servants watered it and God made it grow.”
SPM Bible Quizzes are intended to encourage the study of Bible Knowledge, culminating in the taking of the Bible Knowledge subject at SPM level. In the final analysis, the true measure of the success of a student in studying this subject is not just the achievement of a good grade which is good and necessary, but the transformation in the character of the learner. How much of the development of the fruit of the Spirit – “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” has taken place? These qualities are so needed in every individual, in every home and in our society today.
Excerpted from a message by our Pioneer BK Judge and Quiz Advisor, Mr Yap Kok Keong
