Not Just Literal Mountains
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ... ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. Matthew 21:21
" Removing mountains" was among the Jews a common hyperbole for the conquest of stupendous difficulties. A great teacher was called by the Rabbis goker hartm, or uprooter of mountains.
