A clearly written introduction to the parables and parabolic sayings of Jesus. After introducing the various forms of parables found in the Synoptic Gospels and the principles of interpretation, Kistemaker examines the parables individually with a scholar's mind and a pastor's heart. Originally published as THE PARABLES OF JESUS, this edition contains updated research and is now more accessible to students. 272 pages, from Baker.

The parables are rich with guidance, but sometimes they???re hard to decipher. In this book, all of Jesus??? parables and most of his parabolic sayings from the Synoptic Gospels are explained and interpreted from an evangelical perspective. Careful attention is given to the historical and cultural setting of each story, offering practical insight into Jesus??? words. The entire text of each parable is included, followed by the author??'s commentary. The parables??? applications for the Christian life make this book a valuable sermon or lesson preparation tool. Originally published in 1980 as The Parables of Jesus, this revised book contains recent study on the parables and is now more accessible to lay readers, students, teachers, and pastors. Technical details appear in endnotes for those who want to do further study.
-Publisher

Among the most-loved stories in Scripture are the parables of Jesus. Taken from real life, the parables conveyed spiritual truth and communicated the message of salvation in simple, everyday language. This new, updated version of The Parables of Jesus sheds light on the parables and the parabolic sayings found in the Synoptic Gospels. Each story is examined in light of its historical setting and cultural implications, and then applied to the Christian life today. The entire text of each story is given first, followed by commentary and an explanation of the unique characteristics of each Gospel. Technical details are provided in endnotes for those who wish to do further study. The book also includes a select bibliography to direct readers to additional resources. Highly accessible, informative, and inspiring, The Parables is an excellent book for pastors, teachers, students, and all readers who are interested in the significance of the stories Jesus told.
