This lovely coffee mug is hand painted by a Palestinian lady. She has her own tiny workshop in the heart of Bethlehem. Furthermore she takes great joy in designing her own patterns. Therefore this mug is a unique addition to your mug collection and a beautiful gift for someone you love.

Stories about the Jewish patriarchs—Abraham, Joseph, and Jacob—include descriptions of camels as domesticated animals. One example, is found Genesis 24:10-11. The scripture tells about  Abrahams servant using camels to go find a wife for Jacob.

The New Testament quotes Jesus as saying in Luke 18:25 that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Jesus and the rich young man).

The “Eye of the Needle” was indeed a narrow gateway into Jerusalem. Since camels were heavily loaded with goods and riders, they would need to be un-loaded in order to pass through. Therefore, the analogy is that a rich man would have to similarly unload his material possessions in order to enter heaven.
