    • Title: Referencing the Bible, Matthew 19:23-24, where Jesus says, "Again, I tell you, 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." It may also refer to the Babylonian Talmud, which refers to dreams and says, "They do not show a man a palm tree of gold, nor an elephant going through the eye of a needle." A reference to a camel passing through the eye of a needle also appears in the Quran.
