People's Bible Notes for Luke 15:8

Lu 15:8-10 What woman having ten pieces of silver? It is the custom of the East to have a string of coins for a bracelet, necklace, or headdress. The joy of finding the lost piece again illustrates the joy of heaven over the lost sinner. Light a candle. Because Eastern rooms, often only lighted by the doors, are very dark.
