What Did Jesus Mean? Explaining the Sermon on the Mount and the Parables in Simple and Universal Human Concepts
From The Publisher:
In this highly interdisciplinary work, linguist Anna Wierzbicka casts new light on the words of Jesus by taking her well-known semantic theory of "universal human concepts"—concepts which are intuitively understandable and self-explanatory across languages—and bringing it to bear on Jesus' parables and the Sermon on the Mount. Her approach results in strikingly novel interpretations of the Gospels. Written in dialogue with other biblical commentators, What Did Jesus Mean? is both scholarly rigorous yet accessible.
