Lazareth vs. Lazarus

For months now I have been wondering why one of my three postings on Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) was getting all the hits while the other two were not being viewed at all. So I went back and reviewed them and found that I had misspelled poor Lazarus’ name. The funny thing is that the one with the misspelled name (part II) was the getting all the hits while part I and the conclusion were not viewed at all. It is curious why Part I and the conclusion are seldom read at all. You would think that the readers would like to start at the beginning and read all three parts.

Well, I told you guys that I was dyslexic and could spell very good, but I guess that it didn’t matter much after all. Besides, nobody ever seems to get Lazarus’ name right, do they?

  1. Perhaps some people combine Lazarus (last letter is sigma) with Nazareth. However, I hear SO MANY PEOPLE mispronounce Lazarus that I think some prominent teacher must pronounce it wrong, but I haven’t been able to get to the root of it yet.
