    I rather like the interpretation of Mk 12:41-44. It’s a slightly different take that I hadn’t heard before.

    If I may make a suggestion, could you present the texts that you are discussing? Or at least provide a link? Some of us may not have the easy familiarity with the Bible that you enjoy.
