Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

A little brain teaser

August 23rd, 2009, Promulgated by Choir

Can you find sixteen (16) books of the Bible in this paragraph?

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible (merely by a fluke). It kept people looking so hard for the facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the name of the books were 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 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. There really are sixteen names of books in this story.

    I found the 5 "easy" ones fairly quickly, and 7 more when I figured something out, so that gets me to 12. I haven't pulled my Bible out yet, but probably will at some point.

    I don't want to spoil it for others, so I'll just email what I have so far to CF.

    Great post!

  2. Mary Kay says:

    Up to 13. Does it matter which translation you use?

  3. I looked for a Catholic Bible version of it and couldn't find it, so I use a non-Catholic version.

    I hope this helps and you are doing just fine!

    I'm stopping at 15, since apparently the last one is a toughie.

    Gottem! Thirty years as an evangelical paid off! I'll e-mail my answers so as not to spoil it for others. This was fun! Thanks.

    Carol, congrats!

    Choir Loft and/or Carol, is minister essential to one of them?

  7. Sister Emily says:

    THERE ARE NOT 16!! There are only 13.

    That's a funny icon Sr. Emily! Hilarious.

  9. They answers should be up around 3 p.m.

    There are indeed 16 and I just found the last one, annoyed that I didn't see it earlier.
