Luke 16:1-13

I invite you to raise your hand if this text makes absolutely no sense to you whatsoever. Part of the problem is the translation. Part of the problem is if you take it by itself, and not in the entirety of what’s going on, it doesn’t make sense. If you look at the scriptures that are around it and if you do a more proper translation, I think we can make sense of this. Because this is found in a body of material where Jesus is talking about the ills of wealth, and the wealthy in town are beating the poor, and there’s a whole bunch of stories around this. So, in this one, we have this dishonest manager who gets rewarded for cheating.
