Can Your Students Solve This Puzzle?

One of our authors recently submitted a puzzle to go in the appendix of a new edition of The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice, due for release in the summer of 2020. However, we are having trouble solving the puzzle.

Maybe you and your students can give it a crack. The first winner to email me all of the correct steps  ( will win a $25 gift certificate from Ave Maria Press.


See home many steps it takes you to change from M-O-S-E-S to J-E-S-U-S by changing only one letter at a time. The catch is that you must create a new word each time you change a letter (e.g., MOSES to ROSES).

Remember, you must send ALL the correct steps!

Hope you have better luck than we have had here!

The puzzle was solve by several students and teachers! The winner is Here’s a solution from Andy C, a 10th grader at Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul, MN via his teacher Melissa Bauer. Thanks to all!
