INTRODUCTION. The setting for this parable is the temple in Jerusalem which was the designated place of prayer. The times of prayer were 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., but men went there at any time if they were near and desired to pray. If one was far away, he directed his prayer toward the temple at the appropriate time. An example of this is Daniel while in Babylonian captivity praying three times daily at his window which faced Jerusalem (Dan. 6:10). In this story two men went to the temple to pray–a Pharisee and a publican. These two men represent the extremes of the Jew- ish religious and social classes of that day.
