Parables - part 7

Luke 11:1-13

The Friend at Midnight

The Point: If a person like us would give someone something just to shut him/her up, how much more will God give us what we truly need?

Attempts to allegorize this parable miss the big point. The man and the friend and the guest do not represent particular things. It is the comical, weary attitude of Man #1 and the persistent attitude of Man #2 that is the focus.

Jesus uses the technique of “from the lesser to the greater” to make a point about God answering prayer.
