Tell Me A Story: The Parable Of The Rich Man and Lazarus

Jesus was familiar with popular folktales of his time, including those that told about those who go to heaven and hell. Jesus retells an Egyptian folktale and inserts new names but also a new meaning. He shifts the meaning from a moral and ethical lesson on the rich and the poor and speculation about the after life, suggesting that if we only have eyes for the rich man and remain blind to Lazarus…then maybe we need to open our eyes to the realization that the resurrection is taking place all around Jesus…and your story/life is a testimony to that fact.
