Try working this riddle out in your head (yes, even if it hurts – no pain, no gain!), then you can check to see if you can find your answer in the scripture reference. To be honest upfront, the scripture reference includes more than one number so you may want to double-check your math with a calculator just in case you come up with a wrong answer that’s actually included in the reference (because you’ve never gotten the wrong answer with a math problem, right?).
What is 40 divided by 1/2, plus 15?

Believe it or not, this is “Bible Riddle” # 100! I think it’s quite a little milestone if I say so myself. When I started doing these I never imagined that I would have made it this far with them. As long as I can keep finding “new” riddles that have a Bible answer the tag of “Bible Riddle” will keep growing. I hope that it’s still something that the readers here in TFR enjoy using.
But enough of the confetti and speeches, let’s get back to business as usual. I think this is a very fitting riddle to use for the #100 celebration:
When you do not know what I am, then I am something. But when you know what I am, then I am nothing. What am I?
