    The main gate is closed at night.

      That was the policy. If people could slip into Jerusalem by little secret gates, that would pose a security problem.

      The whole "special gate" thing is just self-justifying rich men's bullshit.

      I do believe the mistranslation concept, though, that the word for "camel" is very close to the word for "cable."

      In that case, Jesus is saying exactly what we think he's saying. You can't get a cable (rope) through the eye of a needle.
