The Parables Of Jesus
Full Product Description
Parables are almost unknown elsewhere in Scripture, yet they comprise a huge proportion of Jesus' teaching to those around him, and through them, to us. He always intended his parables to have life-changing implications: in fact he defined them as being what determined those who were alive to his message, and those who were not.
So, what impact have Jesus' parables had on your life. Have they changed you yet? Terry Johnston will help you make sure that that they do.
The Parables Of Jesus by Terry Johnson was published by Christian Focus Publications in August 2007 and is our 40437th best seller. The ISBN for The Parables Of Jesus is 9781845502928.

The Parables of JesusSu Reid, via The Good Book Stall
Johnson accepts, even applauds, the statement that Jesus’ parables deliberately exclude the crowd (Matthew 13; Mark 4; Luke 8) by arguing that only the chosen will ‘hear’. He interprets the next statement, cited as ‘whoever has, to him more shall be given’ (Matthew 13:12), as meaning that spiritual investment by the chosen will always be rewarded, just as ‘industry and frugality’ are rewarded by wealth in ‘the work world’ (itself a discredited idea, surely!). His book then expounds Jesus’ parables as simple narratives about membership of God’s Kingdom, and exclusion from it, and sidesteps scholarship about authorship, audience, text and form. It reads the Bible for this one meaning only, and quotes from different translations without explanation or references.
