Just for the sake of argument, look at Luke 14:26:
. . . TE KAI THV YUXHN hEAUTOU . . .
This looks to me like a list objects of MISEI building to a climax at the
end of the list. THV YUXHN hEAUTOU is the least likely object of MISEI and
for that reason produces the strongest cognitive disturbance in the auditor.
Cognitive disturbance being one means of measuring prominence.
