Bible Books Puzzle 1 (20 Hidden Books)


(Note there is one abbreviation in this)

Someone showed me this story and remarked that there are 20 books of the Bible hidden here. He challenged me to find them. Sure enough they’re all here. Still this thing’s a lulu; kept me looking so hard for the longest time. Some of you will get bogged down with facts, others are hit by them like they were some kind of revelation or something. You may get in a jam, especially since the names are not capitalized and often leap the spaces between the words. This makes it a real job to find them, but it’ll provide a most fascinating few minutes for you. Yes, there are some really easy ones to spot, but don’t get the big head, cause truthfully, you’ll soon figure that it would take most federal judges and preachers numbers of hours to find them all. I will admit that it usually takes a minister to find one of them and that it is not uncommon for there to be loud lamentations when it is pointed out. One lady says that when she is confronted with puzzles like this, she brews a cup of tea to help her concentrate better, but then, this gal’s a real pro! Verbs, nouns, and all that stuff are her thing. See how well you can compete. Relax! There really are twenty names of Bible books in this story. If you fail to find them, there’s a penalty. You’ll have to fly a kite, sit on a banana, hum the battle hymn of the republic, or hose a dog (a mean one). Get to it!

    I think they should have named it as only 19, the Gal one shouldn’t be there, because it doesn’t have a period either after the word gal

    The part where it says”and preachers..” the word PREACHERS means Ecclesiastes so the last word is PREACHERS we actually had to ask our pastor for this ????
