See if you can find the 30 books of the Bible that are listed in the below
paragraph. If you think you have found all 30 books, send me a private
message with your books, and I’ll let you know if your right! Remember
that some books may occur without their numbers. Not as easy as you
may think!
__________

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 johnboat.
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 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 sales 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 there 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 there 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.

katt, just keep in mind that the puzzle mentions 30 (various) books of The Bible. The game didn’t include all of them; this increases the difficulty because the player doesn’t know which books the author chose to include. :book

Hope that answers your question! :hug

katt, to respond to your other question (What is osee?)-

I am not completely certain of this, BUT, I think Osee is another variation of Hosea , the OT prophet.
Other members are far more educated than me, so let me caveat that this is my best guess! :reading:scratch :hug
