---Careless Bible readers. That is what they are if they take the reading of Luke 16:19-31 literal.

---It is the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

---Abraham’s bosom (Luke 16:22) must be very big to hold all people.

---Heaven and Hell is so close that the two parties talk with each other.

---Mother’s who’s son is lost, will be able to cry every day for the son who did not make it and talk with him.

---This is against the text that says, Jesus will wipe away all tears.

---Jesus did not believe that people are going to heaven after death.

---Jesus said: They will not believe “even though” they are resurrected from the dead. “oude ean” it reads in the Greek using the irrealis mood for the verb. Not reality Mood for the verb.

---They do not stand up at death but even though they did, they would not believe.

---Hell is so close that a finger can be reached out to touch each other.

---Happy people in heaven in this story will see the sufferings in Hell of others almost next to them.

---Those who have read any books of Judaism, books regarded as “holy” by them and read frequently, will know that Jews were masters in the creation of stories, fables.

---Judaism’s stories are added to the already Revelation of God and many of these stories creates conflicts with the Text of Revelation or Word of God, but it is all simply ways and means to circumvent a literal reading of the text and supplant it with a fable considered to follow what they thought is the meaning of the text.

---The Mishnah dates from 300 AD and later, the original manuscripts. It is difficult to say what is exactly earlier from the days of Jesus and what not. It is “backreading” at its best.

---When I had to study Judaism, there was a Guide-Book given to me with many of these fables, stories that they have created over the years.

---It is best to accept that it was a parable and not meant to be understood literal in any way.

---The problem is that this view creates disorientation with what we know about the rest of the Bible and contradicts it.

---Do we want to make of no effect the rest of the Word of God by reading this parable literal?
