Slangful Etymology

I’ve been attending a History of the Bible course after church, and I learned something interesting yesterday.  John 13:38 reads:  “…Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!”  According to some scholars, this is a mistranslation of what Jesus actually said.  He really said, they claim, “You will deny me three times before you realize what a dick you’re being.”
