Ten Pieces of Silver Luke 15

Posted by Ez1 Realty on June 19, 2009


KJV Luke 15:8-10 

8. Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

9. And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

10. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

This parable provides an example showing how one word can uncover the spiritual meaning of a text.

In this parable there is a woman that had ten pieces of silver which is a measure of money. She looses one of the pieces, lights a candle and sweeps the house looking for the lost coin. When she finds the lost silver she rejoices by calling her friends and neighbors to celebrate. In this parable she tells them she had found what she had lost.

 

Silver 

KJV Proverbs 2:3. Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4. If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5. Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

KJV Proverbs 3:13. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

KJV Psalms 12:6. The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

KJV Psalms 119:72. The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

Silver = knowledge, understanding, the word of God, His law.

There are two ways we can paraphrase Luke 15:8-10.

When a woman has ten pieces of the word of God and looses one piece, she lights a candle, sweeps the house and looks until she finds it. When she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors, saying, rejoice with me, I have found the word of God I have lost. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.

When a woman has ten pieces of the law of God and looses one piece, she lights a candle, sweeps the house and looks until she finds it. When she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors, saying, rejoice with me, I have found the law of God I have lost. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.
