Unlocking Parables: ‘Let the One Who Has Ears Hear’

Our spring 2014 discussion series will focus on parables from a diversity of disciplines. How do biblical scholars, ethicists, theologians, historians, or philosophers approach the reading of the biblical parables? What are the most important questions to bring to the text? And how does one go about addressing those questions? During this series each session will have two presenters from different disciplines who will briefly comment before leading the group in a discussion on the chosen parable. Come check it out!
