Chapter Summary

In this chapter, four summary parables are discussed. A direct literary influence of the Matthean version upon the Lucan or of the Lucan upon the Matthean cannot be sustained without assuming a consistency of editorial procedure beyond that which linguistic usage can support. The chapter focuses on the parable of The Two Houses as the climax. The cohesion of this material is greatly assisted by its rich imagery. This wealth of imagery is best understood as the product of a process of growth. The parable has a unique history. It can be classified either as a literary development of a 'fable-type parable' or as a developed 'geminate parable'. The final Matthean form of The Two Houses matches the content of the Sermon on the Mount, which unites within the teaching of Jesus wisdom of biblical and secular character.

Keywords: Lucan; Matthean; Sermon on the Mount; summary parables; The Two Houses
