Item description for The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation by Brad H. Young...

Overview
Fully one-third of Jesus' words in the Synoptic Gospels occur in parables. It could be said that knowing the parables is essential for understanding the person of Christ. In his newest work on the parables, Brad Young displays his unique perspective as a scholar steeped in both Jewish and Christian studies. While parables have timeless messages, reinterpretations in new contexts throughout the centuries have distorted the original meanings and undermined the essence of what Jesus intended for his initial listeners. Young examines the parables that best illustrate the parallels between the rabbinic and Gospel parables. Young challenges readers to remember that first-century Judaism was not merely the backdrop for Jesus' teachings but the very stage from which Jesus delivered the message of the kingdom. Jesus' ethics and theology can be properly understood only in the light of first-century Jewish teachings. Young focuses on the historical development and theological significance of parables in both traditions, then he examines five theological subjects that are dealt with in parables: prayer, grace, reconciliation, calling, and sovereignty.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation?

Brad Young Is a Must Read for any Serious Student of the Bible  Feb 25, 2008
Dr. Brad Young was a professor of mine at ORU. He is a must read if you are going to be a serious student of the Bible. This scholar knows how to write in a way for a theologian or lay person to understand. His understanding of the languages of the Bible, the tradition, culture, history, etc., makes the pages of scripture explode with new meaning. I continue to regularly use his works to prepare sermons and Bible Studies. The Parables is one of his outstanding works. The reader will not be disappointed. Brad Young's writings should be on the shelf of every pastor's study.
 
Lots of information  Jan 7, 2008
If your like me, your always looking for deeper insight, deeper meaning. I try to search out and find books like this one to give me a new angle or better understanding of Scripture. This book delivers, i wish it had more chapters. You will want more. I did.

Too much for the scholar.  Apr 12, 2007
This book was not what I expected. It is not written for the layman but for the scholar and was not useful for my need.
 
It isnt what I waited!  Jan 19, 2007
The jewish tradition about parables are an effort to defigure the Christ meaning. Rabi's wisdom never will be the same of Jesus, the Messiach, Son of God!

Fully one-third of JesusÂ’ words in the Synoptic Gospels occur in parables. It could be said that knowing the parables is essential for understanding the person of Christ. In his newest work on the parables, Brad Young displays his unique perspective as a scholar steeped in both Jewish and Christian studies. While parables have timeless messages, reinterpretations in new contexts throughout the centuries have distorted the original meanings and undermined the essence of what Jesus intended for his initial listeners. Young examines the parables that best illustrate the parallels between the rabbinic and Gospel parables. Young challenges readers to remember that first-century Judaism was not merely the backdrop for JesusÂ’ teachings but the very stage from which Jesus delivered the message of the kingdom. JesusÂ’ ethics and theology can be properly understood only in the light of first-century Jewish teachings. Young focuses on the historical development and theological significance of parables in both traditions, then he examines five theological subjects that are dealt with in parables: prayer, grace, reconciliation, calling, and sovereignty.

"This great new book by Brad H. Young is a decisive step in the right direction. Like his previous books, this innovative work on the parables shows that Jesus is both a foundation of the Christian faith and at the same time an integral part of Second Temple period Judaism. Jewish thought is not—as is often claimed—merely a background for Jesus but is in reality the original context and natural framework of his message. Few people have recognized this basic fact, not only because of inveterate Christian inhibitions but also because it is a very rare case that a New Testament scholar can break the language barrier and move freely in the Hebrew and Aramaic sources of early Judaism proficiently, as Young is able to do. Similarly, Jewish scholars often do not use their advantage in this area of research and sometimes cannot move freely in the Christian material because even they are not always free from their own inherited inhibitions. All who are involved in the study of Judaism, however, as well as everyone seeking a better understanding of Jesus, will be challenged by Young's creative and solid research." (From the foreword)
—David Flusser, Professor Emeritus of Second Temple Period Judaism and Early Christianity, Hebrew University, Jerusalem
