SHORT STORIES BY JESUS: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi

Jesus was a skilled storyteller who used images from everyday life to stir up interest in his message about the Kingdom of God. In Short Stories of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, Vanderbilt University, explores Jesus' most popular parables including: The Lost Son, The Good Samaritan, The Mustard Seed, and The Laborers in the Vineyard, revealing their hidden first-century Jewish depths, exposing their misinterpretations, and showing how they can still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.

Taught by David and Stephenie Justice.   Books are available.
