Find the 16 books of the Bible

Not math-related? Too religious? The challenge of this puzzle is to (title).

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 our 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 pastor to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found! A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books of the Bible in this paragraph.

END OF PARAGRAPH

Don't tell me there are seventeen, okay?

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Re: Find the 16 books of the Bible

No Jasher or Yes Jasher? Is it not a missing book?

Re: Find the 16 books of the Bible

Because it was removed. But you will find mention of it in some of the other books. The spelling is Jasher.

Yes, it is. I just posted this to free boredom. This is located in my Religion (in my school we call it Christian Living) textbook for fifth grade.
