Avner Netanyahu, 15, overcame the other candidates Tuesday, scoring 98 out of a possible 100 points. He advances to the Israeli national competition, the final stage before the International Bible quiz for Youth.
The international competition is held in Jerusalem and is one of the highlights of Israel's annual Independence Day celebrations. It includes a question asked by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, so this year he may end up quizzing his own son.
Netanyahu's other son, Yair, 18, is serving in the military.
