The Rich Young Ruler Story: Personal Application

God will probably test our commitment to him at its weakest, most vulnerable point or points, those areas in our lives that we have made more important than him.

God will probably test our commitment to him at its weakest, most vulnerable point or points, those areas in our lives that we have made more important than him.

In 1993 I edited an article on the Rich Young Ruler story (Matt 19:16-30; Mark 10:17-31; Luke 18:18-30) that was published as “Jerusalem Synoptic Commentary Preview: The Rich Young Ruler Story,” Jerusalem Perspective 38 & 39 (May-Aug. 1993): 3-31. The article included a conjectured Hebrew reconstruction of the story, along with an English translation and commentary.

Collective research on this Gospel passage began in 1986-1987 when sixteen scholars, members of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research and others, spent seventeen seminar sessions discussing this well-known story. Following the seminar’s conclusion, I continued working on the raw material generated by our discussions.
