(Matt. 7:13-14; Luke 13:22-24)

(Huck 40, 165; Aland 72, 211; Crook 55, 248)[1]

וַיֹּאמֶר לָהֶם בַּקְּשׁוּ לְהִכָּנֵס לַשַּׁעַר הַצַּר שֶׁרָחָב שַׁעַר הָאֲבַדּוֹן וּמְרוּבִּים הַנִּכְנָסִים לוֹ מַה צַּר שַׁעַר הַחַיִּים וּמְמוּעָטִים הַנִּכְנָסִים לוֹ

Yeshua urged them, “Try to enter the narrow gate! For wide is the Gate of Avadon, and those who enter it are many. How narrow is the Gate of Life, and those who enter it are few.”[2]

Conclusion

In Narrow Gate Jesus encouraged his listeners to enter the Gate of Life, which guards the Garden of Eden and protects the Tree of Life. Entry is an option for everyone, but not to be won by the faint of heart.
