SS Peter and Paul

Peter the Fisherman. Paul the intellectual.

Peter the rough working class man who speaks from the heart. Paul the man who speaks from his head.
Peter the peasant. Paul the well connected, well educated Roman citizen.

Peter the humble believer. Paul the professional religious man.

Peter with the high school diploma. Paul who went to the Ivy League.
