Scripture Wheres


The Old Testament has 39 books, the New Testament has 27 books, the Book of Mormon has 15 books, the Pearl of Great Price is divided into 4 books plus the Articles of Faith, and the Doctrine and Covenants is divided into sections 1–138 plus 2 Official Declarations. This game tests your knowledge of where each is located.

Instructions

Carefully remove pages 24–25 and 31. (Optional: Mount them on lightweight cardboard and/or cover them with clear self-sticking paper.) Cut out the Title Cards (page 31), place them in a small container, and mix them up. Use the tables of contents in the front of each volume of scriptures to check your answers. Younger children might use “The Books in the Old Testament,” “The Books in the New Testament,” and “The Books in the Book of Mormon” (Children’s Songbook, pages 114, 116, and 119) to help them.

Game 1

In turn, each player picks a Title Card, tells where that book or other division of scripture is found, then, if correct, puts the Title Card in its place in his/her area of the game board. If the answer is not correct, he/she puts the Title Card back in the container.

Game 2

In addition to the information needed in Game 1, the players must also name the scripture book or division that comes before and the one that comes after the one named on the Title Card (unless one doesn’t exist).
