Why did Jesus speak in parables? Moral instruction taught through story, says Mary Seeley, is more memorable, and can easily be taught over and over again. “The parable was then, and still is in the East, the ordinary mode of instruction,” she says.
This volume explores how the kingdom of God is established through Jesus’ parabolic teaching. Seeley groups the parables by themes consistent with the idea of the kingdom of God and digs into each parable’s contribution to understanding the kingdom of God.
