I am sitting at Philip’s computer and the book closest to here is one he has been reading—‘He Spoke in Parables’ by Gordon J. Keddie.

The key to understanding this parable lies in the fact that Jesus was ministering at this point to the Pharisees. They were the party of legalistic ‘orthodoxy’ within Judaism.
To find five others to tag is easier said than done because the only two regular visitors/contributors to my blog are David and Laurie. Sigh!
I will have to entreat my friend Brent in Japan. He rarely finds time to blog and because I wanted to include his blog in my link of blogs, I had to change the link category from ‘Interesting Blogs’ to ‘Blogs I View’.
I’ll tag my daughter Prisy who plans on starting a blog soon, and her friend Natalie who does not blog.

And I’ll close like Laurie has:
“If anyone else wants to play, jump right in. If anyone doesn’t, my feelings will be fine,”
