Shouldn’t the needle be through the eye of the camel, if it is a misunderstanding of Jesus’ saying?
Ich bin sprachlos.
I am speechless.
You really LACK faith, James.
If the inerrant Word of God tell us it is possible to kill camels in such a holy way, then that should settle it.
If they had killed a camel by forcing it through the eye of a needle, that would obviously have been OK!
Rich man = camel.
Gate of heaven = eye of needle.
Camel is not kosher.
Two Israelites in cartoon, being poor, see dead camel and have dinner, for their entire family. Kosher is not that important to a starving family.
Mis-interpretation of scripture proves to be fortuitous.
BTW, what did the ancient Israelites do with all those old, decrepit camels when they passed on to a better place?
