‘Danger!’ Fans Are Frustrated With This Controversial Biblical Hint | Fun

“Danger!” fans are confused and quite annoyed after the controversial Final Jeopardy! clue split the contestants in the final rounds of the program’s “Tournament of Champions”. This is the second clue controversy the show has faced in just a few days.

Amy Schneider, Andrew He and Sam Buttrey are the final standing champions in the tournament and the first person to win three rounds will be the eventual winner. On Wednesday’s episode, the trio were confronted with this clue, in the “New Testament” category:

“Paul’s letter to them is the New Testament epistle with the most quotations from the Old Testament.”

The statement is not controversial because it concerns the Bible. This is not an unusual topic in the quiz. But the correct answer is still a matter of debate, even among biblical scholars.

Schneider replied “Who are the Jews” and was deemed correct by host Ken Jennings.

Buttrey replied “Who are the Romans” and was found to be incorrect.

He said “Philippiaes”, probably in reference to the Philippians, which was also incorrect.

All answers refer to books of the Bible which are collections of epistles, or letters, apparently from Jesus’ Apostle Paul to different groups in the formative days of the Christian church. However, experts differ on whether Paul actually wrote the letter to the Hebrews and, therefore, whether the answer was actually correct. Indeed, there are bitter divisions between different schools of Christian thought regarding Paul’s influence and biblical authorship.

Many “Jeopardy!” viewers thought Buttrey’s answer should have been the correct one, since scholars generally agree that Paul was the author of the book of Romans.

Religion and history experts also spoke.

“Challenge: Hebrews has the most OT quotes of any NT letter; has historically been attributed to Paul; but today most argue he didn’t write it based primarily on internal evidence,” wrote a priest and theology professor on Twitter. “(Romans is right that Paul didn’t write Hebrews),” she added.

“Dear Jeopardy: But Paul didn’t write Hebrews!!!!!!!” wrote another historian and theologian.

Others have postulated that, regardless of the answer, the clue was not clearly worded regarding letters, epistles, and books of the Bible — all deeply confusing terms for people outside (and sometimes within) the spheres of Bible study.

In the midst of the confusion, he emerged as the winner of the night despite his Final Jeopardy! answer, and is one win away from winning the tournament.

It’s worth noting that Buttrey, who had the answer some people think should have been correct, is a fan favorite and he would win if he secured the last answer.

Just days before the Bible kerfuffle, an episode of “Celebrity Jeopardy!” it contained a clue to the 2021 death of Instagram personality Gabby Petito and the suicidal death of her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, who wrote that he was responsible for her murder.

“In 2021 fugitive Brian Laundrie ended his days in the Myakkahatchee Creek area of ​​the FLA, home to these long, toothy creatures,” the clue reads.

(The answer was “What are alligators?”)

The spectators were shocked that the question invoked both suicide and a highly publicized murder.

“Couldn’t you have gotten to the AAAAAANY alligator any other way???” one viewer wrote.

In a statement to various media organizations, a lawyer for the Laundrie family apologized to the show, calling the question “unpleasant”.
