A Good Reading of the Parable of the Unrighteous Steward (Lk 16.1-13)

This sermon provides what I think is a very compelling read of the parable of the Shrewd Steward.

The upshot is this: the unfaithful steward is the scribes and Pharisees. Their response to being discovered as unfaithful stewards by Jesus "should" be to reduce the burdens of those they've burdened (think, e.g., of Lk 11.46 & Mt 23.4). In response, Jesus, their master, would praise them.
