The rich man's continued misunderstanding about the nature of repentance is displayed in his requests (commands?) to Abraham - send Lazarus to me; send Lazarus to my brothers. Lazarus is still a tool to be used to his benefit, even in the dramatic reversal of roles the rich chap finds himself in.

On the visit from the dead - it worked for Scrooge.

sameo - I agree with your point about the rich man; he is still viewing Lazarus as an "object". The whole thing is a great exercise in table-turning, like Jesus in the Temple.

I thought the rich man was dressed in purple to signify the excesses of the episcopacy.

joseph

cpm - you are such a protestant...
