Can you find the names of 25 books of the Bible
in this paragraph? This is [a mos1]t re[mark2]able puzzle. Someone found it in the seat pocket
on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolu[lu, ke3]eping himself occupied for hours. One man
from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his [john4] boat. Roy Clark studied it while
playing his ban[jo. El5]aine Victs mentioned it in her column once. One woman [judges6] the
[job7] to be so involving, s[he brews8] a cup of tea to help calm her nerv[es. Ther9]e will be
some names that are really easy to spot . . . thatís a f[act. S10]ome people will soon find
themselves in a [jam, es11]pecially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. The
t[ruth12] is, f[rom ans13]wers we get, we are forced to admi[t it us14] ually takes a minister
or scholar to see some of the[m at the w15]orst. Something in our [genes is16] responsible for
the difficulty we have. T[hose a17]ble to find all of them will hear great [lamentations18]
from those who have to be shown. One [revelation19] may help, books like [Timothy20] and
[Samuel21] (as well as Kings, Peter, and John) may occur without their [numbers22]. And
punctuation or spaces in the middle are nor[mal. A chi23]pper attitude will help you com[pete.
R24]emember, there are 26 books of the Bible lur[king s25]omewhere in this paragraph.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. [John26]
NOTES FROM WEBMASTER --- Here we have numbered and marked 26 books. Then, if one remembers
the little tricky statement above which says "One revelation may help, books like Timothy and
Samuel" (as well as Kings, Peter, and John) "may occur without their numbers", then one could
some up with the following books displayed or indicated on this page. Starting with the 26
clearly indicated above, then adding: 26 to [+2nd and 3rd John27 & 28], [+2nd Peter29],
[+2nd Timothy30], [+2nd Samuel31], [+2nd Kings32]. And there may be others concealed which
I have not yet found. If you find one we have not found, please send me an email clearly
indicating where you found it so I may add it to the "answers" on this "25 Books Puzzle"
Answers Page (which has now grown to 26, or 32 books if you count the "seconds and thirds"
from the Bible books). God bless.
