The eye of a needle

"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God."
Mark, quoted back always by blaster

Fun Fack

"The eye of the needle" makes it sound impossible to folks who don't know the context. However, Jesus' listeners would know that he was talking about a small defensive gate into the city where you had to get off your camel and take all your goods off the camel to get through. (Like getting past the TSA at airports....) It was called the Needle's Eye. So, not impossible, more like, "you can't take it with you."
