Giggling Junior High

Posted: April 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

Dear Junior High Bible Teachers,

Just for you to note.  If you are teaching the Junior High kids the story of Samson from the Bible and you are doing so out of the NIV, when you get to chapter 16 and verse 7 (where Samson deceptively refers to the source of his strength):

Samson answered her, “If anyone ties me with seven fresh thongs that have not been dried, I’ll become as weak as any other man.”

You can expect the junior high kids to laugh, snicker, and giggle.  You can also expect me to do the same, because often, it seems I’ve not matured much past Junior High. 🙂  The Bible said “seven fresh thongs”  *snicker*

  1. The Bishop says:

    We never had that problem with the King James Version when I was in Junior High. Of course, narcolepsy was often an issue.

  2. Kneip says:

    You know what’s crazy? I just checked the Message to see if that might be more age-appropriate, and it says “seven hot Victoria’s Secret G-strings”! Needless to say, I was surprised.
