Show Summary Details


Introduces Joachim Jeremias's book The Parables of Jesus, which was first published in 1947 and strongly shaped the postwar scholarly discourse on New Testament parables. Oldenhage clarifies how the assumptions of historical criticism led to Jeremias's search for the parables’ first historical setting. In the second part of the chapter, Oldenhage discusses recent critical responses to the anti‐Judaism that is a part of the Jeremias's scholarly rhetoric. New research on the historical Jesus seeks to integrate Jesus within his Jewish context and seeks to understand Jesus’ parables as part of the tradition of Judaism.
