comment Gift or slaughter
@MonicaCellio Genesis 32:13-21 tells of the gift that he sent ahead for Esau. Genesis 33:1-3 does make it clear he was in front of his wives and children.

comment Who are “the least of these my brothers” in Matthew 25?
Are you sure that "least" is referring to Jesus perspective? I read it as referring to the mankind's perspective. We strongly tend to rank people (and would probably categorize the naked, sick, and prisoners among the "least"), but I don't think Jesus uses the same ranking system.

comment Translation of κοπιῶντες in Matthew 11:28
Is the difference in meaning between "weary" and "labor" really large enough to be worth a question here? I don't see how the overall meaning of the verse is significantly different between the two translations.
