    General CommentThe title plays off of the parable that it is harder for a rich man to cross through the gates of heaven than it is for a camel to pass through the eye of a painful image of the needle in the eye of the camel is a witty revenge against this, and as Brian Eno is a meta-rocker, I think here he is poking fun at the limitations of conventional morality and humility in. For a camel to go through a small opening in the Jerusalem wall--the eye of the needle--the camel had to stripped of anything weighing him down, get on his knees. That is a great picture of what we must do to serve the Lord. Just like us, it is likely the camel needed to be pulled or pushed through to the goal.

Some camel, some needle & other thoughts for the day by Arnold Edinborough Download PDF EPUB FB2

Get this from a library. Some camel, some needle & other thoughts for the day. [Arnold Edinborough]. Through the Eye of a Needle by Peter Brown is a book about wealth and Christianity and their effect on each other in the Ancient Roman Empire. The allusion is in the title in the book, which is suiting because in the bible it has to do with the rich and God.

“All things (e.g. a camel's journey through A needle's eye) are possible, it's true. But picture how the camel feels, squeezed out In one long bloody thread, from tail to snout.” ― C.S.

Lewis, Poems. Have you been reading the Bible wrong this whole time. Probably-- but I'll try to help sort that out for you. One of the most famous sayings of Jesus is 'It is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.' (This quote is found in MatthewMarkand Luke ) I remember this verse well from my childhood, and remember.

“It's easier for a rich man to ride that camel through the eye of a needle directly into the Kingdom of Heaven, than for some of us to give up our cell phone.” ―. Some needle & other thoughts for the day book word ‘camel’ has been derived from the Latin word camelus, the Greek word kamēlos, and from the Hebrew word gāmāl, which means ‘going without’, which describes this animal’s ability to go without food or water for days.

We, at Buzzle, have made a small compilation of some of famous phrases, quotes, and sayings about camels. Some theorize that the needle Jesus was speaking of was the Needle Gate, supposedly a low and narrow after-hours entrance found in the wall surrounding Jerusalem.

It was purposely small for security reasons, and a camel could only go through it by stripping off any saddles or packs and crawling through on its knees. Ah, 'Kismet,' or Carry On Camel, as we called it. I thought the show was shocking. It was the worst designed production ever but it's got a fantastic score.

It's not an awfully good book though. You really have to work hard to eke out any laughs from that script. Michael Ball. The fact that in some modern Syrian cities the narrow gate for foot-passengers, at the side of the larger gate, by which wagons, camels, and other beasts of burden enter the city, is known as the "needle's eye," has been assumed to have come down from a remote.

In other words, the Lord wants believers to accept the literal interpretation of Matthewwhich is it not only is unlikely for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye, but also it is impossible for a rich man to see or enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

The rich man’s actions in Matthew support this literal interpretation of Matthew. "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into Some camel kingdom of God." (Matthew ) For the last two centuries it has been common teaching in Sunday School that there is a gate in Jerusalem called the eye of the needle through which a camel could not pass unless it stooped and first had all its baggage first removed.

The phrase "God helps those who help themselves" is a motto that emphasizes the importance of self-initiative and expression is known around the world and used to inspire people for self-help.

The phrase originated in ancient Greece as "the Gods help those who help themselves" and may originally have been is illustrated by two of Aesop's Fables and a similar sentiment. Jim Mathis, W 96th Pl. Overland Park, KS [email protected] There is a debate going on among scholars whether it really said “camel” or rather “rope” – both words (κάμηλος/kámêlos for camel and κάμιλος/kamilos for rope) are very close to each other and might have been mistranslated.

There are some early bible translations in other languages (such as Aramaic) which adhere to the translation as “rope passing through the eye of. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Here Jesus used an analogy similar to the one mentioned earlier in Matthew In this instance he contrasted this large animal to the eye of a needle, the smallest orifice that those listening to him were likely familiar with.

Luke A Camel & a Needle Many are familiar with the story of the “rich young ruler,” and I believe that many, like me for most of my life, miss the main point of it. For decades I thought the story mainly teaches us that a rich person is surely so tainted with sin that he or she will not “make it” to Heaven.

Instead of a camel, it mentions an "elephant passing through an eye of a needle" as being analogous to seeing a "palm made of gold." In 2 other instances, the Talmud uses this metaphor to make very strong points.

It was common for them to use exaggerated language, or. Luke For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. "We know that there is no way that a camel can go through the eye of a needle, so put this in the reality of Jesus day.

The cities of that day were walled cities, and beside the main gate was a very small gate called the needle gate. "Attempts to weaken this hyperbole by taking 'needle' not as a sewing needle, but as a small gate through which an unladen camel could just squeeze -- and only on his knees -- are misguided.

This conjecture may come from some of Jerome's allegorizing" [ The Expositor's Bible Commentary, vol. ” When it was brought, Peter saw a camel coming and stuck the needle in the ground and cried, “In the name of Jesus Christ crucified under Pontius Pilate I command you, camel, to go through the eye of the needle.” The eye opened like a gate and the camel passed through; and yet again, at Peter’s bidding.

I had to leave behind many cherish items when I moved to the apartment. Looks like each time that I move, I invariably have to leave fragments of myself past behind. Hopefully, this will be the last uprooting that I will ever need to do.

And then I read about the camel and the eye of the needle. In MatthewJesus says it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Can a camel go through the eye of a needle. In this Q&A we will discuss what Jesus meant by this. Jesus's remark that it's harder for a rich man to get into heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle is one of his most poetic sayings.

B ut, i f you happen to be rich, it is also one of his most chilling. I haven't seen recent research but some people used to say it was based on a mistranslation and should have been a rope not. This is the word for a ship's cable or hawser.

When the two words were spoken they would sound very similar. So Jesus might have been saying that for a rich person to get into the kingdom of heaven was like trying to thread a needle with a rope. Or perhaps the needle was a carpet-maker's large needle and the thread was made of camel-hair.

English [] Etymology []. From the Gospel of Matthew, verse Some assert that "camel" is a misinterpretation of a word meaning "rope" and others assert that the "Needle's Eye" was a gate in the walls of Jerusalem, but the evidence for each of these theories is contested, and the literal interpretation remains the most common.

Pronunciation []. Ah, you know the verse. It's the one that people love to quote when they are trying to prove that Christians should be poor because it appears to be more righteous.

Well, is it really. "For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Let's look at the definition of "rich," and see who qualifies.

Jesus said to the disciples, “The truth is, it is difficult for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for the wealthy to enter the kingdom of heaven.” —Matthew –24 Using the medium of baked clay and a style akin to political satire, Charles McCollough offers a humorous and somewhat.

Readers are likely to have heard, in one form or another, the New Testament proverb, "And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (Matthew ).

The saying is an old one, and. Using the most likely translation of getting the camel into the “after-hours” door used only for people instead of the wide door normally reserved for commerce.

This wide door represents being comfortable, making easy passage with all of your bagg. “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.” (Mk. ) “For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Lk.

) This saying does not appear in the Gospel of Thomas. The camel is a fine long-distance runner on sand, but a total non-starter when it comes to sliding through narrow openings.

Jesus seems to have found its irregular shape splendidly bizarre (see also Matthew ), and here he offers the ridiculous picture of using a camel to thread a needle. All the probabilities are stacked against success. Some interpreters have argued that this smaller door was the ‘needle’s eye gate,’ while others have suggested that the needle’s eye referred to smaller doors within larger city gates, such as those at Jaffa and Hebron.

Passage through the smaller gate, it was said, would have forced a camel to its knees. In this way a single guard could protect the entrance to the city.

It became known as the “Eye of the Needle.” A camel did not in any way, shape or form want to go through this opening on his knees. The person would tie a rope around the camel’s neck and literally drag him though the gate with the animal scooting and fussing the whole way.

Yes and no. Regardless of whether camel or cable - these types of allegories and metaphors are meant to make people think about life and how to live it; to inspire & engage people, presumably with the hope that they come to the conclusion that mo.

Excerpt from The Camel and the Needle's Eye At the same time, I am compelled by a deep conviction in the truth of my argument which passing years and the course of events only serve to strengthen, and if, by the brief suggestions contained in these pages, I can succeed in induc ing anyone to examine more closely this branch of the Social Problem, which in my opinion is too often dismissed Author: Arthur Ponsonby.

The Eye of the Needle was too small for a camel to walk through -- particularly if that camel was laden with worldly goods. If the other gates were closed, however, it could be managed. First, everything had to be taken off of the camel. Then the beast would be made to kneel, almost to crawl, to duck through the tiny gate.
