771. Night Traveling

Luke 11:5‑6
Listen from:
Luke 11:5-6. Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me.
It would, indeed, be a rare circumstance among us to have a friend come at midnight to borrow bread; but in the East, where, on account of the heat, the traveling is often done at night, it might easily occur to an Oriental audience the allusion in the parable would be perfectly natural.
