Goat Knowing Jesus is everything Gift for you Poster As associate professor of Biblical Languages at Union Presbyterian Seminary, E. Carson Brisson, says, “Let it be noted that this list of afflicted and needy individuals is, at first glance, a list of the very ones who appear to be bereft of God’s favor. These are ‘the least.’ These are truly ‘other.’” Also, see Ezekiel 34:4 for a similar list of afflicted and needy individuals whom God favors. This pericope is also similar to the Parable of the Wheat and Weeds which will be sorted out on Judgment Day. What distinguishes the sheep from the goats is the acceptance or rejection of Jesus’ message. The Sheep and the Goats or “the Judgment of the Nations” is a pronouncement of Jesus recorded in chapter 25 of the Gospel of Matthew, although unlike most parables it does not purport to relate a story of events happening to other characters. According to Anglican theologian Charles Ellicott, “we commonly speak of the concluding portion of this chapter as the parable of the Sheep and the Goats, but it is obvious from its very beginning that it passes beyond the region of parable into that of divine realities, and that the sheep and goats form only a subordinate and parenthetic illustration”. This portion concludes the section of Matthew’s Gospel known as the Olivet Discourse and immediately precedes Matthew’s account of Jesus’ passion and resurrection.
Goat Knowing Jesus is everything Gift for you Poster The three parables that precede this one (The Talents, Bridesmaids, Unfaithful and Faithful Slaves) all stress waiting for and preparing for the return of Christ. “This parable is similar to the Rich man and Lazarus in that the time to repent and be converted, the time to care for the poor on one’s doorstep, is past.” It also recalls the parable of the Good Samaritan. There is some difference of opinion among scholars regarding the identity of “the least of these my brothers”, with Reginald H. Fuller and others holding that it refers to the disciples Jesus sent out on mission. “The criterion of judgment for all the nations is their treatment of those who have borne to the world the message of Jesus, and this means ultimately their acceptance or rejection of Jesus himself; cf. Mt 10:40, “Whoever receives you, receives me.”” “For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory, and then he will repay everyone according to his conduct.”(Mt 16:27).
