Pun of the Day

From the introduction to Scribes, Visionaries, and the Politics of Second Temple Judea by Richard Horsley:

“We have it in writing, but Ben Sira represents his own teaching as oral and his listeners’ learning as aural.” (p.11)

I’m not sure if it technically qualifies as a pun, but I thought it was a clever turn of phrase. Hopefully, the rest of the book turns out to be just as clever.
