The care of a hen to protect her brood from hawks, etc., illustrates the Savior's tender care of his people when exposed to the swoop of the Roman eagle, as in all similar perils, Matthew 23:37 ; 24:22 . The common barn-door fowl is not often mentioned in Scripture, Mark 13:35 ; 14:30 ; Luke 22:34 ; but at the present day they and their eggs are more used in Syria than any other food not vegetable.
