Re: Please help - Is this a parable or story from the Bible?
Hi sundance! And a big welcome to you! Now about your question...this is neither a parable nor a story from the Bible that I know it. Maybe it was some point the teacher was trying to make.
Do you have a Bible, sundance? If not, there is a small square at the top left of each page here where you can go to 'Bible Search' to hunt for any verse you may be thinking about. It will help you, even if you only know the verse is in the Old or New Testament and only remember one or two words.
But also there is link right under that and it says READ BIBLE. There you can go and read.
I'm just curious, new friend. Why did you ask about that story? Any particular reason?
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
