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.

Jesus, the master teacher, frequently used story and narrative to break down the walls of communication and open up the hearts of his listeners. Often the parables were used to reveal truth to his disciples, while keeping it hidden from those who opposed him. Join New Testament scholar Kenneth Schenck as he reflects deeply on the ways Jesus revealed truths about his mission and the kingdom of God through parables, particularly as they are recorded in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. Based on the solid scholarship found in Schenck's two books, Jesus-The Mission and Jesus-Portraits from the Gospels, The Parables of Jesus provides thirty days of in-depth devotions. Each devotion will challenge you to engage, examine, and explore one of Jesus' parables and then take it to God in prayer. Book jacket.

Stories with Intent offers pastors and students an accessible and comprehensive guide to Jesus' parables. Klyne Snodgrass explores in vivid detail the context in which these stories were told, the purpose they had in Jesus' message, and the ways they have been interpreted by the church and modern scholarship. While holding a consciously evangelical approach, Snodgrass deals throughout with a broad spectrum of opinions and interpretations. He begins by surveying the primary issues in parables interpretation. Offering both a new, more functional classification system for Jesus' parables and guidelines for interpreting them, he provides an overview of other parables -- often neglected in the discussion -- from the Old Testament, Jewish writings, and the Greco-Roman world. The remaining chapters group the longer and more important parables of Jesus thematically and give a comprehensive treatment of each, including background and significance for today.
