Jseus can not have a last name, he never lived
Level 46
Oct 11, 2017
Christ isn't a last name, it's a title, and historians would disagree with your assertion that he never lived.
Level 71
Jun 5, 2018
99% guessed Jesus. 90% guessed Lennon. That proves that the Beatles were not more popular than Jesus.
Level 70

Sweet...i get to be the first one to goes...Christ isn't Jesus' last name! Despite 98% of quiz takers getting it right, Him being the most guessed answer, AND displaying his picture on the quiz, i am STILL going to complain. How dare you, Quizmaster, offend my sensibilites and everything I stand for. Now make me more quizzes! There...i took care of nobody else has to worry about it.

Plus Jesus never existed.
Level 52

Vidav, don't start. If you're an atheist, fine, but don't take it to the comments and tick off half the people who read it (unless you want people to give you hate spiels). And quite frankly, nowhere in the quiz does it say these have to be real people. If JB was Jason Bourne, you wouldn't be complaining about that, would you?
Level 74

'Hate spiels'? Surely not! Not from a Christian? :o)

Nicely done, Mr. Wombat.

I've got two words for you, TheWombat: Westboro Baptist.

He did. The historical person existed. Whether or not he was son of God is under debate.
Level 79
Dec 2, 2016
His existence is also debated. though kind of a boring debate, IMO, given the lack of evidence on either side.
Level 79
Feb 3, 2014
Sure it was, and his middle initial was H.

I'm just amazed I got the football question right.
Level 73
Jul 24, 2014
But the quiz doesn't suggest the persons' second names are their surname, or even their last names.
Level 64
Apr 19, 2016
Would be interested to know the origin of the name? I'm here to learn things that I don't already know :)
Level 45
Dec 1, 2016
Johnny Unitas? The origin is that his parents named him Johnny. Oh! You mean Jesus? Christ comes from the Greek "Christos" which is an honorific title which means something like "Messiah" or savior (whether that savior is meant to be spiritual or military is under debate). So, Christ wasn't Jesus last name. It's more again to "Alexander the Great" where "Great" is an honorific title. In this case, Christ means something to the effect of "Jesus the Savior" or "Jesus the Messiah".

I wonder if the QM was thinking about adding Jay-Z :D
Level 36

Tried Jessy, Jessie just not Jesse!!! surely at least one of these alternatives could be allowed?
Level 82

Next time, just try Ventura.

Also those alternatives would have worked.

I think these 2 initial quizzes should require you to provide BOTH names.

Some big hitters in there
Level 45
Dec 1, 2016
So, everybody got Jesus, but almost nobody got Janet Yellen? Get your priorities straight, people.
Level 76
Mar 10, 2017
So you are the touchstone of correct priorities? Got it. Thanks for condescending to grace us all with your presence. So tolerant of you.

Oh thank goodness JB wasn't Justin Bieber "Phew"
Level 79
Dec 2, 2016
Justin Bieber isn't even close to being cool enough to make up half of Tenacious D. He would be like, 1/13th at best.
Level 46
Oct 26, 2017
I find it a travesty that Jay-Z was never President of South Africa
Level 77
May 14, 2018
Please update the president of South Africa to Cyril Ramaphosa, because Zuma resigned in February 2018.
Level 75
Jun 10, 2018
It doesn't say anything about *current* president.
Level 55
