The course on the Parables of Jesus involves an in-depth study of what is considered to be the authentic teaching of Jesus, teaching that is both novel and authoritative as it invites us to begin to see the wider horizon of God's perspective and the inauguration of the Kingdom of God on earth. Drawing on a wealth of biblical scholarship, this course is a comprehensive study of the parables that begins with a discussion of Jesus' teaching and the distinctive elements of parables and then moves to an in-depth study of the parables themselves. Throughout the course we will also discuss the meaning and significance of the parables for us today.
