Can you tell me if the following statement from Luke 16 is correct?
"And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's
table: MOREOVER the DOGS came and licked his sores." The word is MOREOVER,
and should be translated THE OTHER."
Luke 16:19-26...The rich man clothed in purple and fine linen is typical of
the kings and priests of God -- Israel; while Lazarus (whom God aids)
represents the Gentiles. One clarifying point is found in verse 21; that is,
when an obscure word is translated properly: "And desiring to be fed with
the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: MOREOVER the DOGS came and
licked his sores." The word is MOREOVER, and should be translated THE OTHER.
When rendered properly a great deal of light breaks upon the horizon of our
understanding. It would then read -- "THE OTHER DOGS licked his sores."
Doug Clark Creative good ideas that connect with emotion
custom music, video, TV and radio commercials.
