Brain Teaser

Bible Brain Twister By John Kezer

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 are not capitalized, but the
truth finally struck home to numbers of 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 them. I will quickly
admit it usually takes a minister to find one of the 17, 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 the names of 17 books of the Bible in these

One preacher found 16 books in 20 minutes. It took him three
weeks to find the seventeenth one.

(Hint: See how many books of the bible you can find in the
text above.)

Someone forwarded me this, I am not posting the answers yet....It came from the Good Clean Funnies List I found all 17 in less than 30 minutes, with interruptions from Dancer Girl, Long Hair Proud Daddy & Little Sister Headbanger Girl. I did get my Bible out about halfway through. I LOVED this puzzle.

p.s. Motherkitty posted the answer in the comments section. Good job, Motherkitty!

great, give away the answers already will you, thanks, mom. i was going to wait til tomorrow. i forgive you. did you have to get your Bible out??

Motherkitty said...

No, actually I couldn't find mine. Probably buried behind the TV in your room on the bookshelf. I had to print a copy of the books of the Bible from the Internet. Then, it took me about 15 minutes or so to find them all. The last was Titus and only found that by accident. Sorry I revealed the answers too soon.

Thank God for the Internet

This brain teaser is so clever that I am going to use it in the upcoming Fall NARFE newsletter that I write, if that's okay with you. I think our folks would really like it.
