The Marketplace of Humanity

As contemporary society struggles with questions of equity and power, all of us would do well to consider the radical proposition of Scripture, which demotes everyone to the lowest level, assigns some to exercise an unequal authority for its purposes, and then demotes the latter along with everyone else, leaving them in a worse position. “So the last shall be first, and the first last.” (Matthew 20:16) Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 20:1-16.
