Text and Context Session 6: Parables - Truth Made Portable - Sample Clip


As Desi delves deeper into Jesus' use of Parables as a means of getting truth into the hearts and minds of His listeners, he compares ‘Halakah' and ‘Haggadah': the two major Hebraic views on teaching from the Torah. Desi also challenges us as to which "lenses"-Hebraic or Hellenistic-we use to view our world, and the consequences of adopting one outlook or the other. He closes this Session with further thoughts on how Parables paint vivid word pictures of God's Kingdom rule and how this still advances in our world.
