The bema (the raised platform from where Christ gives his Judgment) is found in Revelation 20:11-13. The Greek word "bema" is also literally found in II Corinthians 5:10: "For we must all appear in front of the Judgment throne (Gk: the bema) of Christ, that every one will receive the things in body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."

This is a term used by some Theologians for the judgement that Christians will face. This is for rewards only.

Unlike the Great White Throne judgement which is of sinners who are about to be destroyed in the lake of fire.

The seperation between Christian an Hypocrites takes places at the second coming. Matthew 25

In the Olympic games, and other sporting events, the Bhema was the judge seats for the competition. They judged how well, or not the players performed, and awarded prizes based on this. Paul uses it to describe the judgemen of Christian,s Romans I believe, and that tells us that this is judgement of our obedience to the words of Christ, not works.

Christians stand before the judgment seat of Christ. Romans 14:10-12, 2Corinthians 3:11-15 \ 5:10
I do not know if the bema (word not in scripture) judgment is another name for judgment seat of Christ.

The Greek word [bema], which is translated seat, is from a root which means 'base' or the foot (and by implication, step). It is therefore used to designate a stepped seating area for judgement. Bema simply means the raised seating of a judge or a king. For example, the throne of a King is usually stepped seating.

A website says this, "This phrase refers to the doctrine which teaches that Christians must stand before God and be judged, not for their sins, but in order to determine the nature of the rewards for their works. The is called the 'Bema Seat Judgement' to distinguish it from what they term the, 'White Throne Judgement', the judgement which God reserves for judicial verdict against the transgressions of the wicked."

It has great similarity to the SDA Investigative Judgment, a heresy.
