12 I have little doubt that an original version of each of the synoptic gospels appeared relatively early. However, the text that we have to work with is undoubtedly the result of later editions. 16 If nothing else, the notion of the kingdom signiﬁed ‘change’. e. ‘this’) world? 18 Matthew is the most proliﬁc in attempting to describe the kingdom through images. 13: 24 ǁ Mark 4: 26 13: 31ǁ Mark 4: 31ǁ Luke 3: 19 13: 33 ǁ Luke 13: 20 13: 44 13: 45 13: 47 13: 52 18: 23 20: 1 22: 2 (cf. Luke 14: 15)19 25: 14 ǁ Luke 19: 11 a man who sowed good seed ǁ seeds that are scattered a mustard seed yeast in a dough a treasure hidden in a ﬁeld a merchant looking for ﬁne pearls a net for catching ﬁsh owner of a house brings out new treasures a king settling accounts (debts) with his servants a vineyard owner hiring workers all day long and paying them the same amount at the end of the day a king who gave a wedding feast for his son a man going off on a journey entrusts his servants with money20 Reﬂecting upon the images, one ﬁnds the idea of something very small that will become substantial; something that is (eventually) of great value, and yet of equal value for those who participate in it; and something that demands effort or work from its recipient.

There is, in fact, a double meaning for what came to be known as the ‘sources of morality’. In the Catholic tradition of moral theology, 1600–1965, this referred to the act, circumstances, and (intended) end of a voluntary human action. In the Protestant tradition, it has come to be associated with the ‘Wesleyan Quadrilateral’, ﬁrst formulated by Albert C.
At ﬁrst, that change appears to be small, like the mustard seed. But if one continues to let the vision of the kingdom and of eternal life take over, the changes will become stronger and more effective. For living according to the gospel means more than living according to the law. It brings about a growing ability to understand the spirit of the laws and the purposes or ends for which they exist. THE COMMANDMENTS AS ATTITUDINAL Thus, keeping holy the Lord’s day by refraining from ‘work’ is not an absolute prohibition but a general or ‘standard’ way of living that admits of exceptions.
