    in the wall around Jerusalem argument many times recently, but I don't buy it. Otherwise, why would Jesus have told a wealthy man that if he wanted to follow him (Jesus) he would first have to give away everything he had? The man went away dejected because he would never do that. So there you have it. A wealthy person couldn't follow Jesus until he was no longer wealthy.
