Bible Riddles

Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is the Bible. These are therefore great for using with our other Bible-themedChristian and book riddles.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that final riddle, read the first line of it to your children and have them try guessing what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something split into two sections but which isn’t a game of soccer, they might guess that it’s a baseball inning, theater play or a Twix.

If they don’t guess that the Bible is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess that the answer is the Bible or they run out of clues.
