Priceless 11: Jesus walks on water in Manglish

What I heard in church today was priceless...

Not sure if Pastor read it somewhere or he made it up on his own... he was recounting the scene where the disciples were in a boat on the Sea of Galilee and the boat was rocking in the strong wind. One of the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water towards the boat. He shouted in fear "Hantu!" but Jesus assured him "It is I". And then Peter corrected, "Itu Tuhan!"... and the story went on.

Everyone burst out laughing. And I couldn't help spotting the play of "suku kata" - Han-Tu and Tu-Han! Ingenious! 

The original passage is in Matthew 14:22-33.
