I found this extremely helpful thank you! Shalom!

Rene Lafaut

I would say it slightly differently: "This oil of commitment in the clay lamps (think "us") burns together with the breath of life (think "Holy Spirit") to make the light of the Gospel. The light of the Gospel is love." Going through darkness or trials in friendship with God requires commitment otherwise we give up. Light is a metaphor for goodness (or mercy) in the NT. Breath is a metaphor for the Spirit of God. For a short (one page) explanation of how I see the parable see: http://www.brokenintofreedom.ca/twelfthpage.html
