Item description for Dining With Pharisees (Interfaces) by J. Patrick Mullen...

Overview
Were the Pharisees unfairly portrayed in the New Testament? What would a wider reading of Luke's Gospel reveal? To begin dialoguing with these questions, J. Patrick Mullen focuses on Simon, the Pharisee of Luke 7:36-50, to study and "redeem" the Pharisees of early Judaism. With two methodologies, redactional and anthropological, Mullen discusses these questions and analyzes the Pharisaic movement and first-century Judaism by placing the issues within cultural context. Other topics that arise are the fractures between the Christian and Jewish communities, the development of tradition, and the issues of comparing the various Gospels, especially Luke and Mark. To arrive at a unified reading of Luke, Mullen studies how Luke combines various sources to create a thematic focus and uniquely Lukan portrayal of Jesus. Posing and resolving questions, Dining with Pharisees will help bring readers and students to a deeper understanding of the early Jewish and Christian faith communities.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dining With Pharisees (Interfaces)?

Good exegesis of Luke  Jan 3, 2007
The author does a good job of explaining the world of Luke so that this book of the Bible takes on a clearer meaning. He dissects the parable of the Dinner with the Pharisee beautifully, shedding new light upon the meaning that the Lukan Jesus wanted to convey. The book gets a little academic at times, and thus can drag, but overall it is a good exegesis.
