Essential Teachers notes:
The rich fool is a parable about answering a painfully predictable plea to any Rabbi. There are age old questions you know every youngster will ask one of those day, it may be a simple as the incessant ‘why?” from preschoolers, the “can I still do bad things if God will forgive me?” from the older child, or the “how far until I break the ‘rules’?” of a young teen. Ninety percent of Jesus’ world lived in poverty, two third’s in extreme poverty – the death of the father figure and division of his estate could easily result in the life of a day labourer or beggar. With the oldest receiving a double portion many younger sons would seek the authority of religious leaders for help.
