Rom. 4:7

This may be my last post for a while (until I am again ready to get serious about losing weight). May God bless all sparkers with great success in the weight loss journey and in every area of life.

"May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done"

Proverbs 21:2

Welcome.
This thread has a very long history, I'm guessing at least 5 years, so it has "evolved".
It began years ago with a word challenge based on numbers... like 3 B M, S H T R was 3 blind mice, see how they run.... it was a challenge with over 20 such riddles.

A regular poster and I began making up more similar riddles and that went quite some time, then we went to song titles with a number in the title, then we tried Bible trivia, and then it became verse of the day.

here is the original word challenge
this test does not measure intelligence, your fluency with words and certainly not your math ability.

Each question contains the initials of words that will make it correct. They are common every day phrases that should be recognized by anyone.

Example: 16=O in a P
is answered by 16 Ounces in a Pound

1. 26=L of the A
2. 7=W of the A W
3. 1001= A N
4. 12= S of the Z
5. 54= C in a D (with the J)
6. 9=P in the S S
7. 88= P K
8. 13= S on the A F
9. 32= D at which W F
10. 18= H on a G C
11. 90= D in a R A
12. 200= D for P G in M
13. 8= S on a S S
14. 4= Q in a G
15. 3= B M (S H T R) (trust me, it's not crude)
16. 24= H in a D
17. 1= W on a U
18. 5= D in a Z C
19. 57= H V
20. 11= P on a F T
21. 1000= W that a P is W
22. 29= D in F in a L Y
23. 64= S on a C
24. 40= D and N of the G F

Good luck!

Can someone explain how this thread works. It says word challenge, but it's all scripture.

I think we've found a good use for this topic... sharing scripture rather than posing riddles.

interesting range... begins in the middle of a sentence and ends in the middle of a sentence. Encouraging scripture nonethless.

I was thinking John 12:15
12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an assís colt."

[Luk 19:41-44 KJV] 41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, 42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things [which belong] unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

In what year did this come to pass?

When Jesus rode the ass -- what was the prophetic salutation written to Zion?

Yep. It's your turn. also interesting to see both the complete honestly in God's word and the message of grace conveyed by Jesus being descended from such a motley bunch. As you read down the list there are several you wouldnt be especially proud to call ancestors.
