In the New Testament, Jesus prophesied the betrayal by Peter: “Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, Peter, before ___ _______ _____ _____, you will deny three times that you know me.'” (Luke 22:34) Thus it happened (Luke 22:61), and Peter cried bitterly. This made the X a symbol for both vigilance and betrayal. It serves as a tangible vessel of Christ for some as in the gospel of Matthew, Mark and Luke in the New Testament with Christ speaking through the X. In the sixth century, Pope Gregory I declared the X the emblem of Christianity. This has led to the presence of something on the top of church steeples. What?

Erm….The scientific name of the answer goes into the connect.

X is a 1977 American musical-drama film directed by Martin Scorsese. It is a musical tribute, featuring new songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb as well as standards, to Scorsese’s home town.
In 1979, the theme song from the movie was recorded by Frank Sinatra, for his album Trilogy: Past Present Future , and has since become closely associated with him. The song has been embraced as a celebration of the city, and is often heard at social events and in works that revolve around it.

X refers to any of several types of sweets, especially small candies enrobed in chocolate.
The first reports of Xs come from the 17th century, when they were made at the French royal court. Their name arose from infantile reduplication of the French word for meaning ‘good’. In modern French and several other European languages, the term simply refers to any type of candy or small confection.
This sweet inspired Johann Strauss II to compose a waltz named “Wiener Xs”.

Ferrari launched its replacement for the Enzo this year in the Geneva motor show. It has a naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 along with a KERS system (first for any road going Ferrari). The mid-mounted, direct injection  engine is an evolution of the F12Berlinetta’s unit, and is hooked up to a dual-clutch gearbox and electric motor charging  a 120-cell, 60kg lithium ion battery pack. The V12 spins to 9250rpm and produces 790bhp; the electric motor adds the equivalent of another 160bhp making it a total of 950bhp and 663lb/ft of torque in a car that weighs around 1300kg dry (roughly the same as the Enzo).

                                      — The Beatles, “Glass Onion”
Glass Onion consists almost entirely of cryptic shout outs to the group’s earlier songs.
 John Lennon was so fed up with fans trying to find hidden allusions in their songs that he decided to write a completely nonsensical one. Lennon allegedly said, “Let’s see the fuckers figure that one out” after finishing it. Which, in an ironic twist, was still searched for “clues“.
What is X in the lyrics?
Question 3
When kept as a talisman, a X is said to bring good luck. Many believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out. Others believe that it should be hung the other way, as it will then release its luck to the people around it.
A stylized variation of the X is used for a popular throwing game, Xs.
Superstitious sailors believe nailing a X to the mast will help their vessel avoid storms.

Question 5
William Addis of England is believed to have produced the first mass-produced X in 1780.In 1770 he had been jailed for causing a riot; while in prison he took a small animal bone, drilled small holes in it, obtained some bristles from a guard, tied them in tufts, passed the tufts through the holes on the bone, and glued them. He soon became very rich. He died in 1808, and left the business to his eldest son, also called William; the company continues to this day under the name of Wisdom Xs. Pig hair was used for cheaper Xs, and badger hair for the more expensive ones.
