I've been posting LDS Trivia and Puzzles events, but I came across something that I don't understand. I don't want to write trivia questions with incorrect answers. I play general trivia games over IRC sometimes, and I came across this question: "How many sayings did Jesus say from the cross?" (Capitalization added, because I hate it when sentences aren't done correctly. Of course, I'm not perfect, but I digress.) The correct answer is seven, but I don't think that's correct. I'm wondering what you all think about this. When reading what happens in all four gospels, Jesus speaks six times, and they're not all sayings. One is asking why God has forsaken him. A second one is in response to the two people he was hung in between: "Verily, I say unto thee, 'To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.' (Luke 23:43). That could be a quote. The third one is JUST before he dies: "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit" (Luke 23:46). The fourth and fifth deal with his mother. He says to his mother, "Woman, behold, thy son!" Then he says to His disciple standing near her, "Behold, thy mother!" (John 19:26-27). Okay, there's seven, but I'm still curious as to what you all might think. The sixth is just simply, "I thirst" (John 19:28). Finally, the seventh one is also before He dies: "It is finished" (John 19:30). What do you all think? The way the question is phrased, I think, makes seven incorrect. (Reminder: There will be a game session on New Year's Eve at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. What a great way to end the year, and it's a great family activity. Hopefully, you don't have to worry about staying up late. I will post another reminder Saturday evening.)
