The parable of the lost coin (Luke 15:8-10) primarily because of an interpretation that suggests the money is the woman's dowry. The coins represent her future happiness in relation to her husband.One can spiritualize that interpretation entirely.
I'm not familiar with that interpretation; could you explain it a little further?
I'm not sure the interpretation is bona fide - you can google it. Some agree, some don't.But it helped me relate to the parable, not in monetary terms but rather how the woman safeguards and funnels her possessions into "beatitude." (See makarios in "little Kittel" online - if the link doesn't work, google "beatitude kittel"). I recommend that single volume edition, if you don't already have it.To spiritualize, of course, Christ is the husband.
