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. 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.

The Parables of Jesus (The Jesus Library). He also, correctly, places the parables in the conte This is a very good book on parables that is a nice blend of the inspirational and the scholarly, with more emphasis on the inspirational. Good news for the needy. Bad news for the power brokers. Parables are colorful stories and sayings, often with a surprise or a "hook" at the end of them that make them memorable. All or worth reading.
How much the work is indebted for stimulus and instruction to C. H. Dodd's fundamentally important book The Parables of the Kingdom, London, 1936, is indicated at many points. Professor Dodd's book has opened a new era in the study of the parables; although differences of opinion with regard to some details may exist, yet it is unthinkable that there should ever be any retreat from the essential lines laid down by Dodd for the interpretation of the parables of Jesus. My own contribution is the attempt to arrive at the earliest attainable form of Jesus' parabolic teaching.
Jesus was the master of teaching in parables. His parables often have an unexpected twist or surprise ending that catches the reader's attention. 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). The prophet Isaiah had found that people were so lost in sin that they resented hearing God's Word and deliberately turned away. Jesus experienced the same disappointment and frustration. Thus, the most common interpretation of Jesus' saying is that the people's hardness of heart (pride, arrogance and prejudice) prevented them from understanding and accepting Jesus' teachings.
