Summary

Though based in the culture of first-century Palestine, the parables Jesus told use everyday situations to illustrate timeless lessons -- and they offer vivid, easy-to-remember imagery. So putting the parables in a context modern Christians can understand is a powerful way to communicate the teachings of Jesus. This book helps preachers "prime the pump" with a wealth of informative material on each of the seven parables appearing in Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary. Keeney's stimulating exegesis, commentary, and illustrations leads readers to draw their own insights and applications from these fascinating stories. The material for each parable includes: * the scripture text * a discussion of its context in the church year and related scripture passages * a list of key words * a contemplation of issues the parable addresses * "homily hints" -- outlines and ideas for preaching * "points of contact" * several creative illustrations
