I’d Do Anything for Love
This week we come to the familiar story of "The Rich Young Ruler". The incident is recorded in all three synoptic Gospels and the common title comes from comparing them. Matthew tells us he was young, Luke that he was a ruler, all three that he was rich. In trying to understand it we will venture just a little into first century geography, history, and economics. All to help us grasp the comments of Jesus and the mystery of salvation by grace.
