Parables to Die For: Jesus & His Dangerous Social Critique   

This class approaches the parables in the social, cultural, and political setting of first-century Palestine. It will ask what the listeners of that setting might have heard when Jesus gave these parables, what they might have felt about the various characters Jesus sketched, and how the teachings might have challenged them personally. Taking seriously the fact that Jesus was executed as a revolutionary, it will probe why the Roman-backed government found the teachings the parables contained troublesome.
