Septuagesima Sunday – Church Back Home – February 1, 2015

We have here a familiar parable which, unfortunately, is so well known that the actual message is lost in the discussion of details. We begin by saying that in King James’ time, a penny was an amount of money typical of a laborer’s daily wage. There were workers who worked a full twelve hours, and others who worked for less hours, down to the last-hired who only worked one hour.

All things considered, the solution of the issue raised might be the only one that might actually be fair.
