Short Stories By Jesus

Title: Short Stories by Jesus
Author: Amy-Jill Levine
ISBN: 0061561037
Date of Publication: 2015

Description: A fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus’ narratives, Levine analyzes the “problems with parables,” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. Levine reveals the parables’ connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs and morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
