A Bible Teaser For You... (for everyone :-)
Catholic Treasure Chest ^

Posted on 10/19/2007 9:15:31 AM PDT by NYer

 


In this short paragraph are hidden 16 names of books in the Bible.
Can you find them all?


I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for facts, and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of our readers. To others it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help find them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books of the Bible in this paragraph.


TOPICS: Catholic; Evangelical Christian; Mainline Protestant; Theology

Thanks...that was kind of fun. Of course, I took up my whole lunch break trying to figure most of them out.

And I'll admit, I cheated on one...I had to peek at a list of the books to get Lamentations.

That's not cheating. That's being resourceful - using your God give intelligence to solve a riddle.
