The priest at our parish preached a twist on this parable this sunday.
The verse Luke 10:30 being (KJV)
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
Using an interpretation of "fell among" to be "fell out with co-conspirators"
I'm not sure this English interpretation is correct - and I can see other versions are totally different.
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
As a man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, robbers attacked him and grabbed everything he had. They beat him up and ran off, leaving him half dead.
Is this a correct hypothesis or far-fetched?
His additional logic was that this could be why the Priest and the Levites did not want to rescue the man as he lay wounded.
