View Full Version : Bible verse scavenger hunt.

Oct 2nd 2006, 12:54 AM
Idea for a new game. How about one similiar to The scavanger hunt but with the bible. First person posts a
scripture from the bible without the link. The next person posts where it can be found in the bible.
example post 1: Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: [and] he that shutteth his
lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding.
Example post 2: Proverbs 17:28.
next verse

The purpose of this is not only to build post count but also a fun entertaining way to help learn the Bible.
Opinions on this idea, with the internet it should be a pretty easy game.
