Peter

Jesus said of Peter, “Upon this rock I shall build my church”.

This was a pun, the name Cephas (Hebrew) / Petros (Greek) meaning, “the rock”.

These latter and undignified days, Jesus could have engaged in some self- and other-deprecation and pronounced, pointing, “Upon this peter I shall build my church”.

To which Peter could have answered, “Oh Lord, be thou not a dick.”

To which a latter-day Jesus, snappy and witty and irreverent, would say: “Do I hear a peter calling someone a dick? Oh my.”
