The Good News Talmud - The Soul of Man as a Lamp that Shines

Understanding the Light from the Lamp of the Good News Talmud

GOSPEL: No one after lighting a lamp hides it under a jar, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light. (Luke 8:16)

TALMUD: A lamp is designated lamp, and the soul of man is called a lamp-  better it is that the lamp of flesh and blood be extinguished before the lamp of the Holy One, blessed be He. (Talmud, Shabbath 30b)
