God is God

Aeneas describes Hades:

A massive gate
With adamantine pillars faced the stream,
So strong no force of men or gods in way
May even avail to crack and bring it down.
-Aeneid, Book VI, lines 741-44

Yet Jesus tells Peter,

And I tell you, you are Peter, on on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
-Matthew 16:18

Though no men or gods could tear down the adamantine gates of hell, Yahweh did.
Great is He, and worthy to be praised!
