I'm offering a notably different view of things that is likely far from what most folks think.  And furthermore, I recognize that what I offer isn't even particularly appealing to the mind and senses, least of all to traditional thinking.  It might even be offensive.

So why mention it?

Because this bread I've been given I am to break and share.  No more, no less.  And this I will do.

As the parable of the seeds is the key to understanding all parables, this key is then used to unlock many doors to the kingdom of heaven.

“For it is just like a man about to go on a journey, who called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. “To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey.  “Immediately the one who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained five more talents. “In the same manner the one who had received the two talents gained two more.  “But he who received the one talent went away, and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money."

Who is this man who went away?  And what was it that he entrusted to his servants?  Finally, who were the servants?

The kingdom of heaven is very different than the place that most people the world over associate with the concept of "heaven."  Most people think of it as a place of eternal rest and of peace- and indeed there is such 'a city' within this kingdom, but this is only one part of the kingdom.  It's a gated community for a reason.  People use terms such as "spiritual warfare" loosely and without consideration that in spirit the battles fought and won are not esoteric allusions or ethereal beliefs, but real conflict.  They mistakenly think that 'not flesh and blood' must mean 'not real warfare.'  This is error.

So a man came and went, but while he was here he took bread and gave thanks and broke it and of this he said 'This is my body given for you.'

And they ate it.

 “Now after a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them."
