Greek Exegesis: The Parables

Instructor: Greek Exegesis: The Parables

This study of the parables in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke will (1) increase students’ skills in exegesis; (2) provide a set of notes for use in ministry; and (3) help students develop an understanding of the function of the parables in the Gospels. The parables provide a unique window into Jesus’s use of imaginative language in order to invite Christian conversion and growth. They also offer a window into Jesus’s subversive interest in the dynamics of powerful landowners in an agrarian society — and what all that has to do with the kingdom of God. Prerequisites: see the beginning of this section. (MDiv 1, 3)
