The Camel AND The Eye of A Needle



I was so blessed by the messages of the guest speakers at Penticton Alliance Church on Sunday April 3, 2022 that I simply want to share it. May you be blessed as well!

NOTE: If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, the Guest Speaker’s message starts at about 40:25 minutes into the recorded message.

This message was such a clear and informative presentation that I just had to share it!

To fast forward to the start of the message I am referring to, use your mouse to click and drag the red slider at the bottom of the video to the 40 minute mark.


The context of the Camel Pparable is that a rich young man approached Jesus and asked what it took to have eternal life (Matthew 19:16).

Jesus delineated several of the Ten Commandments and the man answered that he had kept them from the time he was a boy (verses 17 – 20).

The Lord then told him if he wanted to be perfect to sell all he owned, give the proceeds to the poor, and follow him! After hearing these words, the rich man went away sad. The Bible then gives us the “camel” quote in question.

The pastor’s exposition of Jesus’ parable about the camel and the eye of a needle was presented with both clarity and relevance.
