The New Bible Books Search

"Surely you have seen the Bible Books Search that has been around for years.  It has been quite popular, but no one knows who wrote it.  It contained in hidden form about 16 Bible Books, but the words seemed quite disconnected to me. Recently, I have undertaken to re-write it and, hopefully make it into a more connected story while increasing the number of hidden Bible Books to 31." - Dr. Skelton of Winder, Georgia

Now it has more, as my son and I added the remainder. By the way there are 66 books in the Bible, and they have a total of 1,187 chapters. The unique books are listed at the bottom of this page.


Relax for a most challenging few moments. See how well you can compete. Really, all of the Bible Books are in these paragraphs. Don't make a hasty exodus, but be like Romero Mansfield and persist.

Search con and pro; verbs and adjectives. Be Johnny-on-the-spot. Yes, there are some easy ones to spot but I'll admit it usually brings a normal aching head. Unfortunately, one Greek man did so poorly, his answer was called the "Delphi Lemon." Don't forget that great quote by Jeremiah Deuter "O no, my brother got five more than I did!" , or his brother's response "Too bad I ahead of you!" Don't forget what George said to his partner in solving this, Zep, "He's Ian Silly" when his twin interrupted their work.

It's remarkable about the Bible books hidden here. It is a lulu. Keeps some people looking so hard for facts, while for others, it is a revelation. No one got the thrill Jud experienced from the Alps Alms-beggar's songs. To some, it was a hard job and others got in a Jam - especially Jo Ellington, a humble blonde. She and her friend Jo Shuart were looking for Jericho sea.

But, truth will out, and numbers of folks heard Danielle as she said to Jonah, "but ask the Judge so you won't be giving your lamentations to me". Just follow the e-z rail that Matt hewed by the formica hutch. He will be there watching Gene Sisson as she brews some tea for her neighbor, Levi Ticusovich. He came up with the Philippi answer, (also known as the Colossi answer) with help from Sam Uelcher.  Don't forget the Gal at Iansville, Sarah, who said "brother mine, Zek, I elect you to go first."  It was rude of the little girl that said to her brother Zec, "Har, I, ah, beat you real bad, didn't I?" She drove him to drinking at a place called "The 'S' Salon".

I answer some early respondents: To the young lad from Davenshire, I say in his tongue "Tim, O Thy answer was great!"  To Habakkuk's son Gofsolom on your question, "Try Harder"! To Isaiah, son of Zephan, I, ah, have no comment. Lastly, to Nehemiah of the city of Corinth, I answer, "Well done, your ecclesiastes-type response is a gem!

Find them all and your answer will go down in the chronicles of history as one of the best-researched efforts of all time. Hint: one old hag gained many insights by reading slowly.
