The rich man

Back to album page | Back to tile narrative page

The rich young man who went away sadly because he had many possessions is another incident that is made remote by a conventional interpretation. He approaches Jesus with what amounts to a desire to be more holy and is complacent when given the ordinary guidelines about keeping the commandments I think this is the key to the challenge, "Go and sell everything you own," and the comment that follows: "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven" that we are to look into the spirit of the meaning rather than making a literal interpretation.
