Summary: While in the city of Hippos, Yeshua was invited to have dinner at the house
of a prominent artisan named Demitrius. Upon finishing the meal, Demitrius asked
Yeshua what he could do to “draw nigh unto God”(Y:10:60-61). When Yeshua responded
by telling Demitrius to set all his slaves free, a Roman openly disagreed, stating
it was natural that the strong should rule over the weak. During his response to
the Roman (Y:10:62-75), Yeshua mentioned the rise and fall of various conquerors,
including Alexander of Macedonia, Tiglath-Pileser, Nebuchadnezzar, and Cyrus of Persia.
