Question on Luke 16:8
Honestly Akhi Larry, I'm not sure what to make of it. The Ethiopic version is quite late, is it not? The answer though may be much simpler. As I said before, I suspect that Y'shua was doing a parable on judgment--as opposed to the many others that he did on mercy like the "Prodigal Son". If I am right, then the Master in this story, if he is YHWH, is depicted in a very interesting way. He was about to fire his "manager" (Pharisees??? Judah???) for wasting his resources but when the manager acted wisely amongst his own people, he was ready to go to the next step, which Y'shua said (verse 9) that using worldly wealth for good leads to treasure in heaven.

It is very curious though, but I surely don't feel it is, as Jennings thought, a scribal error.

Still working on this one...
