      Mark , the story of the rich young ruler, is a bellwether text for measuring just how literally we are willing to take the the face of it, the story’s prose is so sparse and its implication so disconcerting that we can’t help but be tempted to add in a few words here and there to shade the meaning in our preferred direction and thus cushion the cudgel-like . 1 Henry VIII was crowned King of England in ; Prince Charles was the grandson of Emperor Maximilian I and, in , became the Holy Roman Emperor himself. The “matters” More and his mission were entrusted with were commercial ones, likely involving tariffs. 2 Cuthbert Tunstall was, like More, a well-educated Renaissance Humanist. He was friends with Erasmus and .

    I pictured the rich young man as an older man, coming to one of the Christian communities, saying, “I need to tell you a story about the time I met Jesus, and it took me years to get myself here.” And the community rapt with attention as he tells what happened. I really liked your description of the look of Jesus being seared into his mind.   To his boastful claim of ‘keeping ALL these things, Jesus then adds the first and fundamental commandment. He does so in such an innocuous way that it leaves the young man shocked. Jesus goes to the heart of the matter. The first commandment was that God alone is God and to love Him with all ones heart and soul is the most fundamental of all.

      Many of us are familiar with the interaction that Jesus has with the rich young man as told in three of the Gospels (Matt. , Mark , and Luke ). At the end of the conversation Jesus presents the following challenge to this young man: “Jesus said to him, ‘If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to. Then come and be my follower." When the young man heard this, he was sad, because he was very rich. Jesus said to his disciple, "It's terribly hard for rich people to get into the kingdom of heaven! In fact, it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into God's kingdom.".

Get this from a library. The young mans guide in his way to heaven, or, A cabinet of rich jewels: containing several excellent rules of good counsel and directions for the instructions of young men and young women in the ways of piety to which is added several godly prayers for youth.

[T B, minister of the Gospel.]. Bible Example: The rich man and Lazarus. Luke “There was a rich man who dressed in purple linen clothes everyday. He lived like a king would live with the best of food. There was a poor man named Lazarus who had many bad sores. He was put by the door of the rich man.

He wanted the pieces of food that fell from the table of the rich man. The man is attached to his possessions, so Jesus says: “One thing is missing about you: Go, sell what things you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come be my follower.” Yes, the man could distribute his money to the poor, who cannot repay him, and become a disciple of Jesus.

With surgical precision, Jesus exposes the greed in the man’s heart—greed the man did not even suspect he had. Jesus’ statement that only God is good (Matthew ) is proved in the young man’s response to Jesus’ command.

In His conversation with the rich young ruler, Christ did not teach that we are saved by the works of the Law. Jesus and the rich young man (also called Jesus and the rich ruler) is an episode in the life of Jesus recounted in the Gospel of Matthew –30, the Gospel of Mark –31 and the Gospel of Luke –30 in the New deals with eternal life and the world to come.

22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”. (10) But the rich, in that he is The young mans guide in his way to heaven low (or, better, in his humiliation)And, on the other hand, let a change of state be a cause of joy to the rich man, hard though the effort thereto must confessedly be.

There is an antithesis between his humiliation and the humility of "the brother of low degree:" "God putteth down one, and setteth up another" (). Jesus responds, “Sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me” (Matt.

We know from the four Gospels that Jesus did not call all of his hearers to give away all their possessions. Not all people are as burdened by their possessions as this young man was. In his case. A man of wealth will often trust his riches and not be interested in what God has to offer.

The young do not often look beyond today, much less to the far reaches of eternity. This rich young ruler was a very sensible fellow.

He knew something must be done to attain this happiness; eternal life is not a game of chance or blind fate. Jesus wasn’t merely telling this man to give up his money, Jesus was telling this man that money was blocking his way to God.

God was not #1 in his life, and He should be. Say: When the rich ruler first came to Jesus, the man thought of himself as a pretty good guy. He thought he had kept every one of God’s rules.

The Rich Young Man Matthew 16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life. 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good. there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which. Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou. Gospel of the Nazarenes (as related to us from Origen in his Commentary on Matthew –30) The difference between ourselves and the rich young man is that he was not allowed to solace his regrets by saying: "Never mind what Jesus says, I can still hold on to my riches, but in a spirit of inner detachment.

Bible verses related to Rich Man Entering Heaven from the King James Version (KJV) by Relevance - Sort By Book Order Mark - It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The young man pulled on his robe and made his way downstairs. When he opened the door, he found that the devil had sent three of his demons to attack the man. He quickly tried to close the door, but one of the demons kept sticking his foot in.

Sometime later, after a great struggle, he managed to slam the door shut and returned to his room. The Rich Young Man was really asking Jesus these two things when he posed his question. Universal Question The Rich Young Man asked Jesus this question, and it is known as this because it rises from the depths of the heart of every person and is an essential and unavoidable question for the life of every person.

Then said Jesus to His disciples, Truly I say to you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God ” (Matthew –24).

The Rich Young Man 21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.” 22 When the young man heard this, he went away in sorrow, because he had great wealth.

23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus then gave him a reply no rich man who enjoys the comforts and influence of his wealth brings: "If you would be perfect, go and sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.

And come, follow Me." (see Matthew ) We know the rest is history. The young man went away discouraged because he had great. Matthew Contemporary English Version (CEV) A Rich Young Man.

16 A man came to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?” 17 Jesus said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good. Only God is good. If you want to have eternal life, you must obey his commandments.” 18 “Which ones?” the man asked.

“The rich man had received his good things, and had used them selfishly for his benefit alone. Despite frequent injunctions in the O[ ld] T[ estament] for the rich to share their good things with the poor, this rich man’s indifference to Lazarus showed how far his heart was from God and how far his path had strayed from God’s ways.
