Giving clear messages, Jesus taught pragmatically about life's situations as he saw them through metaphorical parables. In "Parables on Point," author Gary Arthur Thomson delves into the mind of Jesus and analyzes the meanings and ideas behind the parables. " Parables on Point" discovers the real Jesus of Nazareth from the inside out. It peeks through the keyhole of the parables to meet the mind of Jesus utilizing tradition-historical criticism, which studies the textual layers of oral and written traditions of the parables, and archaeology, which digs up the settings in life of the parable. Thomson examines the parable of the good Samaritan, a story that has symbolized tender loving care down through the ages. He reviews the parable of the sower, in which Jesus implants the idea that the influence of God is like a farmer scattering good seed. He discusses how life is like the parable of the weeds in the wheat-among the grain and the flowers, there are always a few weeds. Based on thorough research, "Parables on Point" provide an in-depth examination of the timeless teaching stories of Jesus.

Robert Funk was the major seminal influence on parable scholarship in the second part of the twentieth century. His work on parable as metaphor led to the understanding of Jesus' parables as world-shattering. But it went beyond the question of metaphor: Funk redefined the form of the parable, made a substantial contribution to the argument that Jesus' parables originated in Greek, worked out a scale for evaluating parables as compositions, and proposed a model for how parables gave birth to resurrection faith. The essays in this volume, brought together for the first time, afford the reader a synoptic view of Funk's contribution?a contribution with which scholarship is only now beginning to deal.

The teachings of Jesus take many forms, but the most memorable are undoubtedly his illustrative parables. Although the parables seem simple, the moral lessons they contain are deep and often central to understanding Jesus' life and death. Nearly a third of the words of Jesus recorded in the four gospels are found in his parables, and the rich imagery of these stories has inspired countless works of art throughout the centuries. Siegfried Goebel's book contains an exhaustive study and detailed analysis of these parables. A critical introduction defines "parable" and places Jesus in the context of religious instruction in first-century Palestine. Even among those who are not Christians, Jesus' parables remain some of the best known stories in the world.

Few New Testament topics have been discussed as often and as intensely as Q, the hypothesized second major source alongside the gospel of Mark for the gospels of Matthew and Luke, and the parables. And yet, no monograph to date has been devoted to considering the parables in Q. In addition to filling this gap in New Testament scholarship, Dieter T. Roth addresses the need to move scholarship on both Q and the parables forward along methodological and interpretive lines. Roth considers Q not as a text behind Matthew and Luke that needs to be reconstructed but rather as an intertext between Matthew and Luke that offered plots, characters, and images in parables that were taken up by Matthew and Luke and utilized in their own respective texts. In addition, Roth draws on recent parables research in his examination of the 27 parables in Q (two spoken by John the Baptist, one by the Centurion, and 24 by Jesus) in order to consider their purpose and function in this early Christian text.
