Items related to The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation. Brad H. Young The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation. ISBN 13: 9781598563030. Hebrew University, studied under David Flusser and is the author of Jesus and His Jewish Parables and The Jewish Background to the Lord's Prayer.

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 this work, 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. He 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 and examines five theological subjects that are dealt with in parables: prayer, grace, reconciliation, calling, and sovereignty.

Not quite as comprehensive as I had hoped. Could be laid out in a more user-friendly format. great information, though. Pretty easy to understand and see the author's points on each parable covered. Strengths: readable and thoroughly researched. Weaknesses: focuses on author's details instead of the Lord's emphasis, somewhat skewwed to the author's views.

This book brings a new light and a lot of information about the Parables found in the Bible as well as the Jewish history and tradition of using the parable to teach. The writing style is more near that of a text book and therefore is not "light" reading. I didn't find that it is a "page turner" like the latest novel from your favorite author might be. However, the book is informative and brings a fresh view of the Jewishness of the Parables to the table, especially for those, like myself, steeped in years of Christianity's paradigm of the interpretation of them.

Absolutely brilliant! All who walk with Christ would benefit from reading this immensely. I believe one of the main reasons why Christianity has gone down the road to where it is today, is due to the denial of the Jewishness of Christ and his Jewish teachings which permeate the New Testament.

This book, and everything else written by Brad Young, is excellent and even essential reading for the believer in Jesus who wants (needs!) to learn the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith. Jesus did not set out to start a new religion, one that competes with Judaism. He set out to show how the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob should be lived. Young points this out is several key areas. Good research, solid references, and a taste of what more digging will unearth. Highly recommended!

Excellent instructional writing useful for deeper understanding of Jesus' teachings.

Great for my Hebrew studies in understanding the Mashalim (Parables) and the Jewish culture of Jesus day.

Absolutely delightful reading.
Enjoyed several insights. Felt like a good resource for studying parables. Some of points felt like a bit of a jump, but overall it served well to better understand first century Judaism as the backdrop for Jesus. It gave the insights without burdening the reader to live like a first century Jew to truly be a Christian, as some authors try to persuade.
