Overview

Communication in Jesus’ world involved the use of word pictures, dramatic actions, metaphors, and stories. Rather than lecture about religious corruption, Jesus refers to the Pharisees as “whitewashed tombs.” Rather than outline the failings of the Temple, he cures a fig tree. Without a perceptive and careful use of the culture of the ancient world, we read the stories of Jesus as foreigners.

    An interesting read. I would have liked to have seen the author put some references in for the stories he tells. Some of the ways the author looks at parables I haven't heard in the 35 years i have walked with the Lord. If nothing else, the book will inspire me to do some digging in areas I would not have thought about. The book reads easy as the author tells various stories of his experiences. Some are very touching. It was worth the $8 to hear some different thoughts.
