The Rich Man and Lazarus Much argument has taken place over whether the words of Jesus in Luke were intended to be understood literally or as a parable.
Some Christians feel that in this story, Jesus was offering His hearers a glimpse of what existence in the afterlife is like. Luke New International Version (NIV) The Rich Man and Lazarus. 19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.
20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels. Laid outside the gate of this rich man’s house, however, was an extremely poor man named Lazarus who simply hoped “to eat what fell from the rich man’s table” (v.
21). The rich man was completely indifferent to the plight of Lazarus, showing him no love, sympathy, or compassion whatsoever. Eventually, they both died. The rich man struggles with accepting Abraham’s faith, a faith that is capsulized in Abraham’s words of advice to the rich man.
Besides identifying the rich man and Lazarus with Biblical figures, the author also challenges each reader to identify with Abraham and Lazarus by placing their faith in Christ, the only hope of resting in Abraham Reviews: 5.
