Amos and Luke both champion the cause of the poor, as today’s readings make clear. For that matter, even 1 Timothy, in the two verses immediately following today’s selection, makes exhorting the rich “not to rely on so uncertain a thing as wealth but rather on God” an important duty for the “man of God.” What makes today’s parable so arresting, however, is not what it says about the need to give alms to the poor, a basic biblical principle, but the pathos with which it exposes the predicament of the rich. Even from the depths of the netherworld, the rich man clings to the illusion of his superior status and commands Lazarus, now safe in the bosom of Abraham, to run and fetch him water. Like the leisured and lazy classes in Jerusalem at the time of Amos, who were incapable of imagining the collapse of Joseph, the rich man cannot grasp the reality of his situation and persists in thinking he can at least secure his family’s future. This is the real danger of riches, Jesus says, the numbness that cannot be penetrated by Moses or the prophets or even by the one who rises from the dead.
