Two Interpretations by Principal J. E. Davey and the Rev. F. N. Carpenter
Last year Principal J. E. Davey broadcast a sermon on the basis of the strange parable in the New Testament concerning the unscrupulous dealings of a servant who is about to lose his job. The parable ends with the comment
'And the lord commended the unjust steward.' Principal Davey maintained that it was Jesus who commended him.
In this programme he debates this point and other aspects of the parable with the Rev. F. N. Carpenter , who maintains that it was the servant's master who commended him.
The parable read by Robert Speaight

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
