Excerpt from Die Gleichnisreden Jesu Vor mehr als 11 Jahren schrieb ich das Vorwort zur ersten Aus gabe dieses Buches, nachdem ich die Unmöglichkeit erkannt hatte, den schon 1886 gedruckten "allgemeinen Teil bald durch einen speziellen, der die Auslegung der einzelnen Gleichnisreden Jesu enthielte, zu ver vollständigen. Inzwischen, im Herbst 1898, habe ich den zweiten Teil fertig gestellt, und, da der erste seit einigen Jahren vergriffen war, nunmehr durch eine neue Auflage desselben solche Theologen, die sich für eine historischkritische Behandlung auch der edelsten Bestandteile des Neuen Testaments interessieren, in die Lage gesetzt, sich über die in den beiden Teilen meines Werkes vertretene Auffassung von den Gleichnisreden Jesu ein Urteil zu bilden, bezw. Zu prüfen, ob die Aus legun g der einzelnen Parabeln die im ersten Bande ftir die ganze Rede. Gattung aufgestellten Grundsätze bestätigt, und ob es auf diesem Ge biet wirklich eines Bruches mit überlieferten Vorstellungen bedurfte. Ich füge dem gleich bei, dass ich mir weder als Exeget im zweiten noch als Hermeneutiker in diesem ersten Bande anmasse' als Bahn brecher zu gelten; ich möchte dringend bitten, von einer "methode von B. Weiss-jülicbfir in Zukunft nicht mehr zu reden, wenigstens meinen Namen nicht mit einer Methode in Verbindung zu bringen: je mehr ich mich in die Geschichte der Parabelauslegung vertieft habe, um so bescheidener musste ich werden; weder ich noch B. Weiss haben bezüglich der Gleichnisredm Jesu zum ersten Male etwas ge sehen, was vorher noch nie bemerkt worden wäre; ich darf kein andrea Verdienst für mich in Anspruch nehmen als das, bewusster, nachdrück licher, konsequenter und unbefangener in Theorie und Praxis an diesen Parabeln durchgeführt zu haben, was die Einsicht Aelterer, wenn auch meist erfolglos, gefunden hatte.

The Art Of Parables

Without question, the parables of Jesus are the most-loved and most-used texts in the entire New Testament -- a blessing, opportunity, and challenge to preachers, study groups, and congregations alike. They are the most-loved because as word pictures, they are immediately accessible. We can imagine the situations they describe and wonder how they apply to our own lives. The parables also bring us as near to Jesus as we can get. Biblical scholars agree that the parables are the most authentic words of Jesus available to us, and we value them for that reason. At the same time, the parables present many challenges. The parables appear more than 30 times in the Revised Common Lectionary. Ministers are called to preach the parables over and over again. It 's not easy to approach the parables in a fresh way, or to gain new insights from them when we hear or preach them so often. Which is why The Art of Parables by Charles McCollough is such an indispensable resource. A theologian and artist, McCollough knows the parables intimately and offers a unique, two-pronged approach to each of the 31 parables contained in the New Testament: First, McCollough interprets each of the parables through sculpture. Seeing and approaching the parables visually, through art/sculpture, opens up new levels of understanding. Second, McCollough takes full account of the social, economic, and political context in which the parables were told, with often surprising and challenging results. For example, the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son parables have been used in endless ways to refer to compassionate care of the stranger and to forgiveness of wayward children. But are these the meanings Jesus intended? Not necessarily, says McCollough. This illustrated book (and the accompanying CD of images for projection) will be an invaluable resource to anyone who wants to explore the ethical and social justice issues contained in the parables of Jesus, in a unique way that honours the contribution of the arts.

Studying the New Testament requires a determination to encounter this collection of writings on its own terms. This classic introduction by Charles B. Puskas, revised with C. Michael Robbins, provides helpful guidance. Since the publication of the first edition, which was in print for twenty years, a host of new and diverse cultural, historical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, narrative, textual, and contextual studies has been examined. Attentive also to the positive reviews of the first edition, the authors retain the original tripartite arrangement on 1) the world of the New Testament, 2) interpreting the New Testament, and 3) Jesus and early Christianity. This volume supplies readers with pertinent primary and secondary material. The new edition carries on a genuine effort to be nonsectarian, and although it is more of a critical introduction than a general survey, it is recommended to midlevel college and seminary students and to anyone who wants to be better informed about the New Testament.
