What other dogs? ALLA KAI hOI KUNES would need to be amended to ALLOI, and
then hETEROI for it to be other/different dogs. This is not the Jews and
the Gentiles, but rather an unconcerned rich Jew/Pharisee and a righteous
poor Jew. Notice 16:14, hOI FARISAIOI FILARGUROI hUPARCONTES, "the Pharisees
were fond of silver (greedy). See Josephus Discourse on Hades for a dead
ringer of a similar story.
I have a little problem seeing parables as early church creations for lack
of examples in Acts or the Epistles. It is even said that Jesus quit telling
parables in the end of his ministry, and Acts often states that the apostles
spoke PARRHSIA, which means clearly or without parables (see John 16:29 for
this contrast). Parables seem to be a strictly Jesus-mode of teaching with
no direct parallel in early Christianity; I don't think the Shepherd of
Hermas is comparable.
"Moreover" works for me.
