Is a paralytic just a paralytic? Why did the priest in Luke walk down from Jerusalem and not up? What is the significance of being half dead, or left for dead on the side of the road? Why are we told in Luke, not once, but twice, that functionaries of the Temple passed by, specifically, on the “other side” of the road? Are all these coincidences and casual occurrences, or is something more at stake? In this week’s episode, Richard and Fr. Marc explore these questions, explaining the central role of rigorous study in a disciple’s life-long quest for biblical wisdom. (Episode 20)
