‘Jeopardy!’ fans frustrated by controversial Bible clue

“Jeopardy!” fans are confused, even a little angry after the controversial Final Jeopardy! Clues separated the contestants in the final rounds of the show’s “Tournament of Champions.” This is the second lead controversy the show has faced in just a few days.

Amy Schneider, Andrew He and Sam Buttrey are the eventual winners of the standing tournament and the first to win three rounds will be the eventual winner. On Wednesday’s episode, the trio faced clues like this under the “New Testament” category:

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

Buttrey answered “Who are the Romans”, but was deemed wrong.

He says “Philippiaes”, probably referring to the Philippians, which is also incorrect.

All the answers refer to the epistles or letters in the Bible that were ostensibly written by Jesus’ apostle Paul to various groups during the formative years of the Christian church. However, experts disagree on whether Paul actually wrote the letter to the Hebrews, and whether the answer is actually correct. In fact, there are sharp disagreements among different schools of Christian thought regarding Paul’s biblical influence and authorship.

Many “Jeopardy!” viewers thought Bartley’s answer should be correct, since scholars generally agree that Paul was the author of Romans.

Even religion and history experts got involved.

“Challenge: Hebrews has the most Old Testament quotations of any New Testament alphabet; it has historically been attributed to Paul; but most today believe he didn’t write it primarily on the basis of internal evidence,” A priest and professor of theology wrote on Twitter“(If Paul didn’t write Hebrews, Romans would be correct),” he added.

Others assume that, regardless of the answer, clue wording unclear About Epistles, Epistles, and Bible Books—these terms can be very confusing to those outside (and sometimes inside) the field of biblical studies.

In all the chaos, he was the winner of the night despite his Final Jeopardy mistake! The answer is, it’s just one win away from a championship win.

It’s worth noting that Buttrey gave what some people think should be the correct answer, is a fan favorite If he gets the final answer, he wins.
