30 Books of the Bible Puzzle





 
There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them?
[img][/img]

This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much; he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo, Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it, she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really east to spot. That's a fact. Some people, however, will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or a scholar to see some of them at the worst. Research has shown that something in out genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, "The books are all right here in plain view hidden from sight." Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus, there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found. God Bless!

  Ugh, brain teasers. :) Thanks Greybear, this is GREAT. I got 15 before I cheated and looked at the answers. It is true, many lamentations when they were pointed out to me. :) Very

  I got 29 and spent a week going crazy trying to fine # 30. Looking at the answers, I found that a sentence was missing. After the sentence "...Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers:" should be the following: "Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal." Regardless, it was great fun, and I thank you for posting this one!

  Greybear, thanks for sharing this. I have only spent about 10 minutes on it so far, and I have only found half of the books, but I am still looking. Blessings, Frank

  I got 26 of them until my brain was fried and I could no longer continue. And, yes, I greatly lamented when I saw the 4 I had missed! Argh!
