Biblical Study Break: Pondering the Parables

  • Course Dates: Mon 3 November 2014, 1:00 pm to Thu 6 November 2014, 2:00 pm

In preparation for the lectionary year of the Gospel of Mark the parables are a vital source of insight.

According to Mark (4.34), Jesus never said anything except in parables! That is, at first sight, surprising, not least because what we are used to labelling parables appear so little in this Gospel.

Equally surprising perhaps is Mark’s summing up of everything that Jesus says under the ‘catch all’ heading of wisdom (6.2). So, without being exclusively confined to Mark, we can usefully explore how parables – and not just the well-known and often used ones – and wisdom work, and where they situate both Jesus and Mark in the teaching traditions of Israel and the wider world.
