Product Description

This inaugural volume in the Bible in Its World series offers a comprehensive commentary on the parables of Jesus. Arland Hultgren's outstanding work features fresh translations of the parables in the Synoptic Gospels and the Gospel of Thomas, followed by interpretive notes and commentary on the theological meaning and significance of each parable for readers today.

After an introductory chapter on nature of parables and their interpretation, Hultgren studies the thirty-eight parables of Jesusthematically, exploring in turn "parables of the revelation of God," "parables of exemplary behavior", "parables of wisdom", "parables of life before God", "parables of final judgement", "allegorical parables", and "parables of the kingdom". He also discusses how the three evangelists used the parables within the literary framework and theological interests of their Gospels. The book ends with a close look at the parables of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas.

    This volume on the Parables of Jesus byHultgren is a good reference source for ananalysis of every parable spoken by Jesus Christ as found in the Gospels (and insome non-canonical sources). The scholarshipis sometimes critical, but sidestepping thecritical theories, Hultgren provides a penetrating exegetical, expository,thelogical and practical analysisof each parable which makes this book worthhaving as a reference source for anyonepreaching or teaching the parables of Christ.
