Matthew 16:13-20


BIBLE PASSAGE — Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah. — Proper 16, Series A

    Paronomasia? Makes sense to me: there’s two of ‘em: (1) Peter and (2) his confession. Any way to make it three of a kind?

    Baaaad, really baaad. Good comic, though. Also to find and actually use paranomasia in a sentence must mean you are either a sadistic preacher or professor, especially if you expect your students to follow your punishment.

    Pasor talked on the Lutheran hour on this very subject.
