Bible Riddle: What Am I?

by Steve Ray on November 22, 2015

Since we will be here today, I thought this riddle appropriate!

But, before you click the link, see if you can figure out this riddle :-)
Write to me if you need help; click here to see the answer.

Three times I have been divided
doing what God had decided.
Twice a garment was the tool
that led me to obey God’s rule.
I was the threshold of new things
and the limit of many kings.
Once God’s son I did embrace.
Once the ark stood in my place.
Never have I walked the ground,
nor in the heavens was I found.

What am I?

Cartoon on Protestantism and the Bible

When I look back on my experience I find this cartoon has a ring of truth. There were many verses of the Bible that I either didn’t realize existed (though that may seem strange) or that we just ignored. We virtually cut them out of the Bible in the sense that we ignored or reasoned [...]

There are many studies that exclude Catholic ideas [...]
