Item Description...
Which parables did Jesus really tell? At the Jesus Seminar, over 100 scholars convened to rate the authenticity of each parable attributed to Jesus in canonical and extracanonical sources. This is their report. The 61 versions of 33 parables are printed in the color corresponding to the voting results: red and pink for authentic parables, gray and black for non-authentic. An introduction explains both the critical views of the gospels and the criteria used to evaluate the parables. While evangelical students naturally will not subscribe to the critical theories, they do need to be aware of them---and this book will help. 128 pages, paper from Polebridge.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Full of insights  Oct 2, 2006
I have had this real season of consuming Jesus Seminar books. R W Funk is marvelous in his frank easy-going style when going thru the parables of Jesus.

This report is one of many, which preceded the masterpiece "The five gospels" and which is wholly dedicated to the parables.

The report starts with the organistion and work method of the Jesus Seminar, an overview of the relationship between the gospels and the historic Jesus and his sayings and ends with the beautiful parables coloured according to how close or far they are to the historic Jesus. The more elaborate and theological the parables become, the more further from Jesus they have been written. I found the overview of the gospels very important: it is a very good picture of how far objective non-religious reserach has come. Besdies the four gospels, the gospel of Thomas and Hebrews are included among many others.

I do fancy this objective terretrial look at Jesus and his time, far from the majestic superman of the gospels. A Jesus that thru his parables want to give us humans an insight of what a divine conscience is, of how to be human and a good one and of course: to be a full individual, present today, NOW.

One of the parables that inspired me most what Thomas' about the woman who carried food on her head in a jar, which breaks. She doesn't know and find out when she's arrived at home. Jesus likens the divine conscience (aka kingdom of god) to this whole situation, the whole process and not only to the overflow of food, drinks etc but to this life.
