Have fun print this out, give it to your friends. You can also use it as a witness tool.

There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them? 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 easy 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 our 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 the 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 to 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.

  So far I found 19, but I have a question, if you find one that has 2 or more books by the same name with a number like first or second do they count as one or can they count for the amount of books individually?

I have done this one before. As the paragraph states

Quote
One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers.

So if you find 1 Timothy and 2 Timothy then you have found two books.

No, Timothy is one book, and Samuel is one book.

Ok, give me at least a day and I'll try to find all 30, but my eyesight gets worse towards the end of the day so I might have to wait till tomorrow morning, then I'll have to yell 'UNCLE'

Never yell uncle, where there's a will there's a way.

That would be like cheating though!!  Shocked  Shocked
I want to try doing it without the computer's help. It might take a little more effort but I will probably be a little more satisfied knowing that I did it without the computer.  Roll Eyes
