Camel or Rope? Matt: 19:24
#2
Shlama Otto,


Lamsa's own words prove that he is wrong about his rope theory:

Quote:Everybody in the Orient knows that a camel could never pass through a needle???s eye, but that a rope might at least be forced through the eye of a large needle.
Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

The disciples would not have been incredulous at the idea of a rope going through the eye of a needle, as Lamsa himself admits, but they said,"Who then can be saved?"
Then our Lord said,"With men this is impossible!
Why would He have said that if He were talking about a rope? That is not impossible with men!

But a camel is impossible for men to get through the eye of a needle; that is the point. It is impossible (except with God, of course).

Let's see you exegete yourself out of that conundrum.

Dave
