The Power of Parable: How Fiction by Jesus Became Fiction About Jesus

About the Book

Foremost Jesus scholar shows how "parables" not only reveal what Jesus wanted to teach but also provide the key for explaining how the gospel writers sought to explain this prophet from Nazareth. The world"s foremost Jesus scholar John Dominic Crossan shows us how the parables present throughout the New Testament not only reveal what Jesus wanted to teach but also provide the key for explaining how the Gospels" writers sought to explain the Prophet of Nazareth to the world. In this meaningful exploration of the metaphorical stories told by Jesus and the Gospel writers, Crossan combines the biblical expertise of his <em>The Greatest Prayer </em>with a historical and social analysis that harkens closely to his <em>Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography</em>, creating an illuminating and nuanced exploration of the Scripture that fans of Marcus Borg and Bart Ehrman will find fascinating and essential.<br />
