Luke 23:31
Question from John Genco on 11/12/2012:

How do I comprehend Luke 23:31 "For if men use the green wood like this, what will happen when it is dry ?"

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 11/20/2012:

Green may refer to one who is good and dry to the lifeless wicked. In effect, it may mean, If they do this to me, Son of God, how much worse what is coming--particularly for the wicked.

Fr Echert
