It takes 6...
It takes 6 from 1st to 10th minus the 72, so that equals 66, for monkeys to scatter.
The pearl was given to her but she turned into a swine, not literally but like one. Swines are also known as pigs to put it in more understandable terms. In Bahasa pigs are called babi or khinzir; in my native tongue it's simply called berek. So like a swine, berek, babi, khinzir, jani', (hahaha) they dont know the value of the pearl. Pearls are taken from oysters. I think from the sea and you have to pry their shells to get the pearl.I have not seen this in reality but I saw it on TV. Interesting. Pearls are expensive and hard to get. And from what I know pearls take a considerable ammount of time to form in the oyster. It does not happen over night. And people have to look for them in the sea.
So now you know that why pearls are expensive. But to simply give them out to someone who becomes a swine is just plain wasting. But that is if you know that they turned into swines. So if you don't know prepare to see your pearl be trampled underfoot by the clueless swine. So it takes 6 from 1st to 10th minus the 72, so that equals 66, for monkeys to scatter.
I love the stroy of the reformation where Martin Luther posted the 95. A small monk thrumping the Goliath and thus we have our Protestant movement.
Deitrich Bonhoffer is one of those people I admire. He wrote the book 'Cost of Discipleship' and was tru to its core. His conviction led him to the intention to topple Hitler but the plan bit and he was put in prison and later on hanged. He took the cost of discipleship.
So it takes 6 from 1st to 10th minus the 72, so that equals 66, for monkeys to scatter.
Jesus the ultimate mentor, also opposed the Jews of his day and led the 'rebellion' and the pharisees say it. They were so agitated that they stripped him and crucified him. But his story none the less ende with death but justice. Instead of dying he Rose up. Justice was being presented. So it takes 6 from 1st to 10th minus the 72, so that equals 66, for monkeys to scatter.

- I'm a student of Theology (currently and will always be one). I'm a student of culture and a student of music as well. I guess you could say life is a never ending journey of learning. Because of that we never stop being students. Just a little something about this blog: Deconstructing The Monkey is all about being a safe space for emerging conversations
