Out of 66 books of the Bible (well I think 56 without the double and triple books), the names of 22 books of the Bible are "hidden" in the paragraph below. This one is a little more difficult than the previous 'Brain Teaser' that was posted on the blog back on Oct 1st of last year. If you would like to try the first Brain Teaser before attempting this one, click HERE!
Now for Brain Teaser Part II. How many can you find in the paragraph below? Remember there are 22 hidden in all...
One man from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Roy Clark studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Victs mentioned it in her column once. One woman judges the job to be so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help calm her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot … that’s a fact. Some people will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. The truth is, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or scholar to see some of them at the worst. Something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have. Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation may help, books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. And punctuation or spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete. Remember, there are 22 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph.
