The Hidden Books of the Bible

by quaesitor

No idea where they got this from but HT to Ruth & Phil Zahn for this little divertissement. I played around with it a bit while on the plane yesterday (am in Istanbul this weekend – more on that to come).

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE YOU TO SPOT 17 BOOKS OF THE BIBLE?

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible – it was by fluke, really, that it got people looking so hard. Some were in a real jam, (especially since the names of the books were not capitalized) while answers came to others almost as a revelation. But now the truth finally struck home to large numbers of readers. This really was no small job. Yes, there will be some particularly difficult ones to spot, I’ll quickly admit. It usually requires serious mental effort. One lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. Then there was the frustration that Joe learned the hard way: he found sixteen books in twenty minutes… and then took three weeks to find the seventeenth. In fact, some even give up and resort to getting help from competition judges. Then, inevitably, when the answers are revealed, huge lamentations are the order of the day. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are seventeen names of the Bible hidden in this paragraph. We hope that you will have a most fascinating few moments.

    Took me 35 minutes😦 And that’s with years of cryptic practice, too. Did you do it in under 15?
