Pop Quiz

by Jen Hunt, from the archives

Who do you say I am?
Get it right and
It could be the million dollar question
A non-smoking, extra leg room
Window-seat-to-heaven opportunity

We feel sorry for Simon,
Wondering if we’d have posited so confidently
Under similar handicaps

That is, without...
... interference
%^())(&^$#%^*)(*&
It could be approached from so many possible angles
A trick question
Great improver of mankind?
Time's running out
Better hold out for Kant Barth Kirkegaard
Personified ideal of the good principle
Where's my concordance
%^*))__)P(*&^&*)___)()

Yes, give Pete some credit
After all, the quest for the historical Jesus had not yet begun,
Poor Peter couldn't traditio-histor-Him away
Impossible to grasp how Pete could say
"THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD IS HE"
No thanks to the 20-page write-up in ISBE

Yet, this is what Simon, illumined, did answer
And with that answer timely given
Was issued the keys to the kingdom of heaven
