I find this passage curious:
«Again, the reign of the heavens is like to a net that was cast into the sea, and did gather together of every kind, which, when it was filled, having drawn up again upon the beach, and having sat down, they gathered the good into vessels, and the bad they did cast out, so shall it be in the full end of the age, the messengers shall come forth and separate the evil out of the midst of the righteous, and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire, there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.»
—The Gospel of Matthew 13:47-50 (Young’s Literal Translation)
This passage describes a process of selection. It is about a net. A net selects fish on the basis of size. Fish smaller in size than the apertures in the net pass through it. Fish larger in size than the apertures in the net do not. This is selection
The fishermen collect the good fish in baskets, but throw the bad away. This is selection.
The angels separate the wicked from the righteous and destroy the wicked by throwing them into the blazing furnace. This is selection.
I can’t help but think that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution by natural selection has precedents in Scripture.
«Jesus saith to them, `Did ye understand all these?’ They say to him, `Yes, sir.'»
—The Gospel of Matthew 13:51 (Young’s Literal Translation)
