Today's Reading: Exodus 21-22 and Matthew 19
There are some myths out there about Matthew 19:24 and the camel going through the eye of the needle. Maybe you have heard that the 'eye of the needle' was a hole in the city wall, and that a camel would have to stoop down to get through. Or maybe you have heard that the 'eye of the needle' was a certain pass between mountains.
But I believe the truth is much simpler. It's absurd to try to get a camel through the eye of a needle. It's a silly mental image that effectively communicates the impossibility of the idea.
