Dives

 

Pronunciation:  DAI-vees

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 38:36

 

And Yeshua taught them this parable, saying: “There was a certain rich man whose name was Dives; the same was clothed in fine purple linen, having upon its borders a golden hem filled with precious stones; and he fared sumptuously every day.

 

 

Refer to:  Yeshua 38:29-52


Summary:  Dives was the name of a man in a parable that Yeshua shared while in the home of a Pharisee who had invited him to dinner (Y:38:29-52). When the conversation turned to providing for the poor to attain inner cleanliness, some of the Pharisees objected, claiming their meager charities plentiful enough. Yeshua responded with a parable about a rich man named Dives and a blind beggar named Lazarus who sat daily at Dives’ gate. Both of them died, and Dives found himself in desolation, looking up to Heaven where Lazarus rested in the bosom of Abraham. When Dives begged Abraham for mercy, Abraham rejected Dives, reminding him that he had shown only scorn to Lazarus while in the mortal life.
