“What is this I hear about you?” (Luke 16:2) The question the master asks the steward at the beginning of the parable in this Sunday’s Gospel (Luke 16:1–13) may at first glance make it sound as if there is gossip going on in the community. The master has heard this steward has been dishonest in some way — “[he] was reported to him” (Luke 16:1) — thus, someone has been talking about the steward. But the complaints against him seem to be well-founded, because the master decides to fire him.
