Reflection - Parable of the Dragnet (Matt 13:47-50)

Image: “The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous”.

The parable of the dragnet, similar to the parable of the wheat and the tares a few paragraphs earlier, is a good example of St Matthew’s dualistic eschatology. By dualistic, we refer to the segregation of two classes of people (just and wicked) to two destinations (the kingdom of heaven and the furnace of fire). What do we make of this ?

Have a listen to this reading and reflect on what this means for your life.
