Product Description

This book is a study of the parables unique to the Third Gospel, aiming in particular to establish a link between Luke'schoice of these parables and his overall purpose in writing. In comparison to the synoptic kingdom parables, one distinguishing feature of the Lukan parables is their more personal portrait of thecharacter and the nature of God himself. Luke'sdesire is to demonstrate to his readers, whoever they are, that in Christianity the realization of the Jewish hope has occurred. The parables promote this idea by offering both continuity (OT) and contrast (contemporary Judaism) in their portrait of God. Thus, as well as operating in a parenetic sense, the parables also help to legitimize Luke'sargument regarding fulfilment.
