Item description for The Parables of Jesus by Luise Schottroff & Linda M. Maloney...
Overview An alternative reading of Jesus' parables. Decries the traditional allegorizing of Jesus' stories, with their easy identification of God as one of the characters in the stories.
Publishers Description A premier New Testament scholar explores how Jesus' trial and execution are portrayed in the New Testament and how that portrayal has affected biblical studies, Christian theology, and Jewish-Christian relations through history. Tomson has written an accessible, responsible analysis of the biblical accounts of Jesus' death, demonstrating how, through compounded misunderstandings, they contributed to anti-Jewish sentiment in the early church and later history.Tomson's question of how Jesus is to be understood in his first-century Judean context is a critical one not only for biblical scholars, but for anyone concerned about human rights and interreligious dialogue today.
