Product Description

This book revolutionizes the study of Jesus' parables. The classics in the field are rendered instantly obsolete. Herzog has succeeded in the impossible: on a subject seemingly exhausted, he has introduced an entirely new approach that solves one anomaly in the parables after another. His results have become self-validating, as parables that have previously resisted intelligibility suddenly become transparent.

Publisher's Description

William Herzog shows that the focus of the parables was not on a vision of the glory of the reign of God but on the gory details of the way oppression served the interests of the ruling class. The parables were a form of social analysis, as well as a form of theological reflection. Herzog scrutinizes their canonical form to show the distinction between its purpose for Jesus and for evangelists. To do this, he uses the tools of historical criticism, including form criticism and redaction criticism.
