The Parables of Jesus book. Good news for the needy. Bad news for the power brokers. What more could you want? It’s not just that Wenham illuminates the Parables of Jesus, but illustrates how they impact the rest of the New Testament. The Parables of Jesus by David Wenham is phenomenal. The way Wenham explains and explores the powerful sayings of Scripture blows me away. Looking at the cultural context and the way that other New Testament writers understood them and used them in their writings gives such a fresh and needed interpretation to an often dry subject.

I purchased three books, including David Wenham's "The Parable of Jesus. I am not a Bible scholar and not particularly interested in theological debates over allegorical loose ends and old disputes over linguisitc fine points that other books were consumed with. This book provided me exactly what I needed - clear, concise insights into the culture, traditions and context of the times.

Jesus was the master of teaching in parables. His parables often have an unexpected twist or surprise ending that catches the reader's attention.

Jesus was the master of teaching in parables. They are also cleverly designed to draw listeners into new ways of thinking, new attitudes and new ways of acting (Getty-Sullivan, pp. 2-4). I might as well be speaking to a brick wall. You would think that God had shut their minds to i. So Jesus spoke his parables; he meant them to flash into people’s minds and to illuminate the truth of God. But in so many eyes he saw a dull incomprehension. He saw so many people blinded by prejudice, deafened by wishful thinking, too lazy to think.

Jesus' most vivid portraits of this new kingdom are found in the parables. David Wenham explores the splendor and subtleties of Jesus' world-changing message, offering a nontechnical but comprehensive look at dozens of Jesus' stories.

I prepared a series of Bible studies on the parables of Jesus and wanted supplemental material to add to my understanding and class lectures. Specifically, I was interested in Jewish traditions and cultural insights that would add color and clarity to the stories.

I purchased three books, including David Wenham's "The Parable of Jesus." I am not a Bible scholar and not particularly interested in theological debates over allegorical loose ends and old disputes over linguisitc fine points that other books were consumed with.

This book provided me exactly what I needed - clear, concise insights into the culture, traditions and context of the times. For example, in the Prodigal Son, Wenham pointed out that by asking his father for his inheritance while the father was still living, in the meaning of the legal traditions, the prodigal was actually implying that he wished his father dead.

In the parable of the Good Samritan, he observes that the road from "Jericho to Jerusalem" drops 2,500 feet along a treacherous and winding path; ideal for robbers and thieves to hang out. Further, he points out that "two denari" was enough money to pay for twenty-four nights at the inn.

These details helped me to put meat on the bones of the story and bring to life these precious parables. These are not earth-shattering biblical truths, but they were very helpful to me in making the topic interesting and relevant. Just like Wenham's book.

I can't seem to whet satisfy my appetite for explanations of what Jesus says in his parables, but this book is one of several I have read that goes a long way in providing insight that is otherwise easily lost in cursory readings of our Lord's words. I definitely recommend it!

Incredible. I used this book so much that the pages started to fall out. Loved the historical and cultural background which added much greater understanding to my study. Wenham makes the parables practical to our every day life as well. Well worth the read and deep study.

I am using this book as the text for a group bible study on the Parables of Jesus. This book is an excellent resource for teachers and students of the Bible. It provides a thorough basis for exegesis of each of the parables, grouping them logically and explaining them accurately. Wenham lets the historical and literary context drive his interpretations, avoiding the twin pitfalls of assuming the parables are either allegory or single point. Overall, a must-have for anyone who plans to seriously study the parables.
D. Wenham's survey of the parables is modern, inclusive, relaxed, and inventive. He loves the parables and you will appreciate them much more after reading this book.
