Mixed Metaphors?

Michael Peach

If like the prophets Yeshu uttered "I"
When speaking on behalf of God within,
And if no true, observant Jew saw why
"The son of God" meant literal Holy kin,
It seems the Hellenistic Church endowed
Some Aramaic metaphors it found
With pagan meanings, which it then avowed
To be historic facts on hallowed ground.
