Chapter Summary

This chapter tests a reading of the parables of Jesus in the context of his execution in Jerusalem. Scholars have, with a greater or lesser degree of success, brought together aspects of the Passion narratives in the Gospels with sayings material in an effort to understand the aims of Jesus in relation to the results of his earthly career. The chapter argues that protest and promise operate not only in the events most closely associated with Jesus last days in Jerusalem, but also in his parables spoken primarily in his Galilean Jewish context prior to the entry into Jerusalem. The ensuing discussion falls under two main headings: 1) the Galilean Jesus executed in Jerusalem, and 2) Parables codifying Jesus vision and action.

Keywords: Galilean; Gospels; Jerusalem; Jesus parables
