Rediscovering the Parables

Rediscovering the Parables

by Joachim Jeremias




Joachim Jeremias' The Parables of Jesus is a classic of twentieth-century New Testament scholarship. However, to appreciate its original form to the full calls for a knowledge of Greek, and patience to work through much technical and linguistic material. Aware of this, before he died the author worked on a shorter and simplified version which was subsequently also translated into English.
'This is an excellent idea, because a book which became for many students a gateway into a new understanding of the parables is now available, in its main substance, to a much wider group of readers'
(The Expository Times).
Long unavailable, it is now reissued for a new generation of readers who will perhaps find it even more useful than did their predecessors.
Joachim Jeremias was Professor of New Testament in the University of Gottingen and died in 1979.
