Keeping It Short
Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.
In the sequence of letters below, which group of letters doesn't belong with the rest?
HintAcronyms when used fully, these can help spread The Word.
These are standard acronyms of the most popular versions of the Christian Bible. Except for #6 NYT, which stands for the New York Times.
1) TLB - The Living Bible
2) RSV - Revised Standard Version
3) NASB - New American Standard Bible
4) TEV - Today's English Version
5) GNB - Good News Bible
7) KJV - King James Version
8) NEB - New English Bible
9) NIV - New International Version

|#1 - I find it hard to believe that this teaser is legitimately easy (a 1.52 difficulty at the time of this post).|
#2 - I figured that they must be acronyms. I concluded that "NYT" did not belong, because it was the only one that I could figure out.
#3 - I hope that the comment immediately preceeding is deleted for inappropriate content. I believe that that person needs to spend some time reading the Bible instead of using language that is more appropriate for a cesspool.

|I'm sorry, but I didn't enjoy that teaser. That was more of a Cryptography teaser than anything. |

|it would be a cryptogram if the clues were some sort of code or encoded text. in fact, they are merely abbreviations. this is a good trivia question. |

|The only acronym I know for bibles is JPS (Jewish Publication Society), and that one is extremely common/popular with people I know/my school.|

Other than that, I liked the puzzle; thanks!

| I'm with Fhqwhgads - four letters rather than three letters...|
so this is what happens when you're an atheist, you miss out on getting teasers correct 'coz you don't know your bibles...
