Luke 6:46 Τί δέ με καλεῖτε· κύριε κύριε, καὶ οὐ ποιεῖτε ἃ λέγω;
Ti de me kaleite: kyrie kyrie, kai ou poieite ha lego
Why do you call me Lord Lord and do not do what I say?This verse contains two figures. The first is with the repetition of Lord (kyrie) twice in a row which forms the figure epanalepsis. Epanalepsis is usually used for emphasis or to heighten the emotional appeal. The second figure is that this verse, unlike Matthew's parallel material (Mt. 7:21) is a rhetorical question. By using the rhetorical question, Luke draws the audience into his argument as participants.
