(1) Thom 97

Jesus said, The [Father's] imperial rule is like a woman who was carrying a [jar] full of meal. 2 While she was walking along [a] distant road, the handle of the jar broke and the meal spilled behind her [along] the road. 3 She didn't know it; she hadn't noticed a problem. 4 When she reached her house, she put the jar down and discovered that it was empty. [Complete Gospels]
