(b) Parable of the rich man & Lazarus
(c) Moral lessons
True value in life does not depend on Material possession. This is reflected in Jesus’ teaching about material possessions. One of the multitudes said to him, ‘Teacher bid my brother to divide the inheritance with me”. But Jesus said to him “man who made me a judge or divider over you? “ He then said to them “Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions”.
There was a rich man whose land brought forth plenty of crops, He had a bountiful harvest He said to himself, I will full down my bars, and build a larger one, I will say to my soul, you soul rest and enjoy the fruit of your labour, But God said “you fool, tonight your soul would be required from you and he died that night.
The rich should learn to glorify God with their wealth.
Narrate the parable of the rich fool.
There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine clothes. He feasted every day. Also, there was at the gate a poor beggar named Lazarus full of sores and dogs licked his sores. Lazarus usually ate from the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. Later Lazarus died and was carried by angels into Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried and in hell he lifted up his eyes being in torment.
While the rich man was in torment in hell, he looked up and saw Lazarus and pleaded with Abraham to ask Lazarus to give him a drop of water to cool his tongue. The request was turned down. He was reminded of his life on earth, Also the fact that there is a barrier between the two sides.
He also told Abraham to send a message to his five brethren so that they could repent but Abraham said they have Moses and the prophets that they should listen to them, otherwise they will be in hell.
1) Who was Moses? Mention the names of some prophets
2) Try to explain the gulf that was fixed between Abraham, Lazarus and the rich man
