Something To Stew About

The names of 16 books of the Bible are contained in the paragraph below. Can you find them all? Try and see if you can and then PLEASE leave me a comment and tell me how many you found and which ones they are. This should be fun to see who can find all 16 of them.

I ONCE MADE SOME REMARKS ABOUT HIDDEN BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. IT WAS A LULU. KEPT SOME PEOPLE LOOKING SO HARD FOR FACTS, AND TO OTHERS IT WAS A REVELATION. SOME PEOPLE WERE IN A JAM ESPECIALLY SINCE 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 MINUTES FOR YOU. YES, THERE WILL BE SOME REALLY EASY ONES TO SPOT. OTHERS MIGHT REQUIRE JUDGES TO DETERMINE. WE WILL QUICKLY ADMIT IT USUALLY TAKES A MINISTER TO FIND THEM. BUT THERE WILL BE LOUD LAMENTATIONS WHEN YOU SEE HOW EASY IT IS. A LITTLE LADY SAYS THAT IF SHE BREWS TEA SHE CAN CONCENTRATE BETTER. SEE HOW WELL YOU CAN COMPETE. RELAX NOW. THERE ARE SIXTEEN IN THIS PARAGRAPH. GOOD LUCK!!

I found these 15 but I must say it was very disconcerting to see the death ticker climbing as I searched for one more book! I finally gave up after 4,830 some souls had died! Not funny, but I felt like I had to finish before more people died and my hubby wouldn't let me give up! OK here are my 15:
Mark, Luke, Kings, Acts, Ruth, Revelation,James, Numbers, Amos, Esther, Judges,Peter, Lamentations, Titus, Hebrews, _________ I am so anxiously awaiting to see what my 16th one should have been! Thanks, it was fun!

Juie, I looked for a very long time and only found the same 15 as Pam. I would really like to know what the 16th book is. Hope that you post the answer soon.

Oh no! I figured it out. I spent a good long time searching with my wife when I decided to cheat. I ran a google search for the first sentence of this riddle and found that we are unable to find the 16th because it doesn't exist in this version. There is a typo in the 6th sentence. According to some other websites found via google, it is supposed to say "To others it was a real JOB."

Oh well. It was still a ton of fun!

Man....Nicholas...I'm so sorry you had to cheat like that. I did have a typo. And I checked and checked and thought I did it exactly right. I'm so sorry y'all. Pam did get them all and then Nicholas found the last one. Thanks y'all for trying this. I'm sorry Pam that so many had to die and go to hell while you were doing this. It took you about as long as it took me to do it though. It was hard for me to find them all.

Pam said...

LOL how funny! I thought it might be Job but couldn't find it in here anywhere! Thanks Nicholas!

Cindy said...

Well it took me a while!! I finally found them all. I had to re-read this thing like a thousand times though! LOL To cool!

Mrs. C said...

I found them all, but it took me 13 minutes! I think I'll save this one to use as a game for our ladies' fellowship. :)
P.S.~ I guess you fixed the typo before I tried it because I found Job. :)

Sis. Julie said...

Thank you all for trying this. I know it had to be frustrating for a minute...it was for me!!

I tried and got cross eyed!

Pam said...

Oh Oh! I see the editor has been on site! Now I would have found JOB really easily had it been there! *grins*

I trust your Sunday was a blessed one. Happy Monday!

Maria....I'm not good at challenges any of the time...tired or not. I don't have the patience for them. So I sure don't blame you for not trying this.

Daddy had some of us do that several years ago. It's a neat little puzzle!

Sis Julie,
I found all 16 but it took me a while and about made me cross-eyed. I was determined not to give up. It was fun. Mark, Luke, Revelation, James, Numbers, Job, Judges, Lamentations, Hebrews, Ruth, Peter, Kings, Acts, Titus, Esther, and Amos.

I've been wanting to do this and just haven't had time. I'll get to it soon though. I love puzzles like this.

What a hoot! I found 10 on the first pass. Where did you find this? Did your husband come up with it? Thanks for the fun. :~)

Sis. Julie said...

Thank you everyone for trying this. I'm glad so many of you had fun finding them all.

e-mom....no my husband didn't come up with this. He's smart enough to come up with something like this though. I actually found this in a folder of things I had collected from my years in the Sunday School my husband and I were in when we first got saved.

Hi, Julie. I found them ALL without looking at the answers. I actually came upon this through e-mom's blog. It was great. Thanks for making it up.
