The Judge asks Tom to name the 12 apostles and the only thing he can come up with is David and Goliath. The narrator (Mr Twain) decides he's humiliated Tom enough and moves on......... he doesn't need to explain. Most every child or adult in Twain's day would have recognized Tom's mistake immediately.
