Evans Church of Christ


Rich man

And Lazarus

Luke 16:19-31


Rich man

And Lazarus

Proper use of Riches


“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:13

Mammon = “money” ESV

Luke 16:14-15

Pharisees were lovers of money

Highly esteemed among men

Abomination in the sight of God


Rich man

And Lazarus

Parable - ???

Real characters -

Does not matter



Certain rich man


Rich man Before Death

Luke 16:19 “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:”

Sumptuously = Luxury

Used possessions for self


1 John 3:17 “But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?”

Proverbs 21:13 “Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.”

James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”


Lazarus Before Death


Luke 16:20 “And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,”

Luke 16:21 “And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.”




The Two Men In Death

  • Destinies were sealed
  • Burial
  • Did not cease to exist
    • conscious
    • rational
  • Not their final abode
    • Lazarus - paradise
    • Rich man - hades

The Men After Death

They could remember

Lazarus comforted

Rich man in torment

Send Lazarus

Send him to my brothers


Rich man

And Lazarus

Luke 16:19-31


Refutes Many False Doctrines

Modernism = deny miracles - inspiration

Jesus endorsed Moses

“They have Moses and the prophets”

“If they hear not Moses and the prophets”

Jesus believed in Flood and creation

Mt. 24:37-39 “days of Noah”

Mt. 19:4-6 “made them at the beginning”


Refutes Many False Doctrines

Christian Science = deny sin, sores, death and future punishment

Jesus tells us:

Rich man sinned

Rich man punished after death


Had sores



Refutes Many False Doctrines


Dead can communicate with loved ones

Dead can come back to earth

Saints care for ones in hell

Jesus teaches the opposite

Rich man could not communicate

Rich man could not go back to earth

Lazarus could not help


Refutes Many False Doctrines

Souls Sleeping

Unconscious sleep waiting for resurrection

Rich man was conscious - knew he was in pain

Lazarus was conscious - was comforted

Abraham was conscious - could think / talk

Body sleeps in death not the soul


Matthew 27:52-53

52. “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53. And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”

Body sleeps in death not the soul


Refutes Many False Doctrines


Wicked can be released

Prayers of dead are heard

Rich man could not escape

He could not change from Hades to Paradise

His prayers were not answered


Refutes Many False Doctrines


Direct operation of Holy Spirit by miracles

God refused to work a miracle by sending Lazarus back to the brothers

Repentance is by the power of the word

Luke 16:31

Rom. 1:16 - gospel is the power

James 1:21 “engrafted word”


Refutes Many False Doctrines

Second Chance

Rich man was not offered a second chance

He tried to get relief but failed

Judgment will be the way we are at death

Heb. 9:27

According to deeds - 2 Cor. 5:10


Refutes Many False Doctrines

  • Dead have lost their Identity
  • Rich man had not lost his identity
  • Lazarus had not lost his identity
  • Abraham had not lost his identity

Refutes Many False Doctrines

Can live in Wealth and Ease

Fate of the rich man is a warning

Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”


Rich man

And Lazarus

Proper use of Riches

Luke 16:19-31
