    The 'Eye of the Needle' is a gate in Jerusalem too small for a camel to pass through. However, 'rope' through an eye of a sewing needle works too. remember this is metaphor, so both work. It is easier for something larger to pass through a small aperture than it is for a rich man, who is small, to enter through the vast gates of heaven. Cardona's point about translation remains valid and no one should take the English translation of any ancient text at face value. Proper academic commentaries always include author's translations and extensive textual notes on the etymology of words. I also love the EU take on mythology and its relation to religious interpretation. I only wish Cardona's books were more affordable (in Canada). Thanks for the snippet!

    Rope...is probably correct translation...as fishermen use it daily...but Camel...just the improbability makes it more memorable ?
