About
In The Power of Parable, top Bible scholar John Dominic Crossan carefully dissects the stories we read in the gospels to get back to what Jesus actually intended to teach. Parables became so important for Jesus's teaching that his followers also used this form to explain Jesus's own life, ministry, and accomplishments. Each gospel, then, is really a book-length "megaparable" about Jesus of Nazareth. Crossan also shows how these four gospel writers ended up undermining Jesus's true message of God's kingdom - that of bringing peace and justice for all.
