The Rich Young Ruler and Prayer
What was he ruler of?No where in the text of Matthew 19:16-26, Mark 10;17-27, or Luke 18:18-27 could I find any indication that the man was a ruler of anything. He owned a lot of property and resources, so I'm assuming he got the title because of his wealth. Maybe he was the ruler of his own estate.
Some translations just call him a rich young man. Maybe that is a better way to think about him.
