Bible Riddle Answer – and a Little Puzzle

Last Friday we posted a Bible riddle for part of our “Friday Fun” – which ended up being quite popular. And many of you wrestled with it until you solved it! Congratulations!

For those of you who have NOT yet come up with the answer I provide it here. So, if you do not want to know yet, do NOT read this post. But if you have no more hair to pull out, go ahead and look.

whale-1The ANSWER is WHALE. You had to think of Jonah and the great fish that the Lord sent to swallow him up to have the middle part (as well as everything else) make sense – the part about the soul.

And that’s exactly the tip my wife gave that enabled us to solve it. I won’t tell you exactly how she said it; that in itself is a Friday fun item. But we give her credit where credit is due. 🙂

Since, you found that riddle so challenging and enjoyable, we will post another item today – a Bible puzzle (found here). Have fun!

The names of sixteen books of the English Bible are hidden in the text of the following paragraph. Can you find all sixteen of them?

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu. Kept people looking so hard for facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. One little lady says she brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now for there are really sixteen names of books of the Bible in this story.
