My incorrect response was based on Matthew 16, verse 18: "I say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church."

What the hell with that FJ category? No offense to Catholic viewers but that seems a little too specific for FJ.
I'll be checking off today's Final Jeopardy as correct and I've only set foot in churches for weddings and funerals.
Sure, I'm not saying that no one who isn't a practicing Catholic couldn't get it; just that I don't remember the category before and it seems a lot to ask people to study Catholic feast days along with the more usual Bible categories they feature. From some of the other comments, it seems like the clue was problematic on its face as well - another problem with taking clues from the Gospels when there are four largely but not always consistent books.

At the end of the day, it's just one FJ - and they all missed so "no harm, no foul" as Alex would say. Easy clues benefit the leader; hard ones open it up for the second and third place players, so it all works out. (Still could have been a better clue though!).

First FJ I’ve missed in at least two months.

I've seen only 2 posters so far who profess to have gotten this right: One claiming a position of complete ignorance and the other absolute certainty! Seems like it was hardest on those of us somewhere in the middle...

51 R
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Intimidate, Indiana Jones, Frank Sinatra, Antietam, Golden, Sulphur, 150, Nine, Four, Andrew Johnson, Evangeline

I knew St. Andrews day is November 30th(Which is TODAY.). Also knew Advent was very soon. I know feast days very well, and I did not expect that this would pay of for a Final Jeopardy!

in my mind, apostles were not disciples, so I went with Paul. That FJ really shouldn't have gotten past quality control.

Catching up after surviving both Midwest FurFest and a total OS failure...

Yes, I got the weasel clue.

Ran Abbreviations.

Didn't know "sedate" was also a verb.

How was freaking Indiana Jones a stand and stare?
