The Unjust Steward

We discuss the "Parable of the Unjust Steward." This parable often confuses readers because of the poor English translations. Fr Aaron noted the better translation of the "unjust steward" is the "steward of/to the unjust." Understood in this light, the parable makes complete sense with the rest of the New Testament and underscores how the Gospel was taken to the Gentiles/nations. While the mission to the Jews by and large failed, the Apostle Paul and others, the stewards of the unjust, found success in offering God's mercy and leniency to the nations.
