comment Who or what is Rahab in Job?
@BruceJames you're not saying Rahab doesn't mean Serpent in Job though are you? If so, do the other beasts and stuff have geographical counterparts?

comment Is Matthew 13:18-23 specific to Matthew's congregation?
Asked it on Christianity.SE because it probably is too broad to ask here.

comment Is Matthew 13:18-23 specific to Matthew's congregation?
Yeah, that's something I really want to know the answer to. I don't think I could ask my parish priest without sounding like I'm picking a fight, but he keeps on bringing up all this stuff especially cultural relativism with respect to Eph 5:21 (which incidentally was the Mass reading this weekend)

I think he said that He didn't explain them because they had different meanings and Jesus probably told the same parable quite often while preaching but only one instance would naturally be recorded in the Gospel. He said that this explanation was given to solve the problems of a particular group, but even the explanation is not the only explanation. I can buy that , I just wonder if he really meant "Jesus didn't actually say that". I wish i could remember to ask him.

Have you ever heard of the notion that Jesus didn't explain His parables? The priest in my parish is the only one I've ever heard say this, but he says it year after year.
