Commentary: Chapter 15 contains three parables that all have the same theme: those who "keep" the law never realize they are the ones that are lost! They never repent! The parables gradually become more and more specific, eventually using an example to which everyone may related. Chapter 16 appears to be a shift from teaching to a crowd, to teaching to the disciples. The disciples were confused as to how this parable could apply to them, as they had no money. Jesus was telling them to use what they had wisely and that no man can serve both man and money.
