Product Description

In this splendid introduction to the elusive rhetorical device central to the New Testament picture of Jesus, Charles Hedrick explores the nature of the parable and its history of use. In part one, he asks basic questions relating to the definition of a parable, whether Jesus authored the New Testament parables, and the meaning of a parable. He then reviews a range of sources including Aesop's fables and modern New Testament scholarship to answer these queries. In part two, he surveys the various ways the parables have been approached in literary criticism throughout history, giving specific examples of each method and delineating their strengths as well as their weaknesses.
