The primary meaning of the word "parable" is "comparison." Hultgren's comprehensive commentary, however, is incomparable, blending solid scholarship with accessible style. His fascinating study covers the Synoptic gospels and the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas, arranging 38 parables in seven categories: the revelation of God, exemplary behavior, wisdom, life before God, final judgment, the kingdom, and allegories. 522 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
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 the nature of parables and their interpretation, Hultgren studies the thirty-eight parables of Jesus thematically, exploring in turn "parables of the revelation of God," "parables of exemplary behavior," "parables of wisdom," "parables of life before God," "parables of final judgment," "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.Distinctive in the field for its scope of coverage and its goal of addressing the widest possible audience, this volume will be a valuable study resource for classrooms, churches, and general readers.
