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.
