If Colbert Were A Prophet, aka The Ironic Catholic Bible Challenge




Bloggerdom glory will go to the person who solves this puzzle. If Stephen Colbert were a prophet, and he had an on notice board, which nation would come next (in the ??? spot)?

I know we have an ecumenical audience here, but I am begging the Catholics to disprove that we never read the Bible. We do, darn it. So...go at it in the midrash box.

WINNER! Kathryn (give me a link, Kathryn) got it right and early! I'm so proud! The answer is in the midrash box.

NEXT QUESTION: Who is the prophet to which I am referring?

WINNER! Diane of Bringing Home the Word got it...it's the first two chapters of Amos.

Kathryn! You're the winner!

OK, next question: who is the Prophet I'm referring to?

Diane said...

Amos. Interesting, because he'd be my first choice for Stephen's prophetic bent....

This would be great material for the "No Catholic Left Behind" catechesis program.
