The Challenge of Jesus' Parables
Richard N. Longenecker (Editor)
From The Publisher:
A fresh look at the meaning of Jesus parables for Christian living today.
The parables recorded in the Gospels are central for an understanding of Jesus and his ministry. Yet the parables are more than simple stories; they present a number of obstacles to contemporary readers hoping to fully grasp their meaning. In this volume, thirteen New Testament scholars provide the background necessary to understand the original context and meaning of Jesus parables as well as their modern applications, all in a manner easily accessible to general readers.
