[SOLVED] Reflect on one of the parables of Jesus in the synoptic gospels (not an opinion paper)
Im trying to learn for my History class and Im stuck. Can you help?
Reflect on one of the parables of Jesus in the synoptic gospels (not an opinion paper)
Hint: List of parables can be found on Page 100 of Powell Text book. I suggest looking at one that has a longer length or is found in all three or two of the synoptic gospels.
What I am looking for?
-What is the metaphor symbolizing? What is the mundane/ordinary object(s) of the parable and to what spiritual truth does it point to?
– What does it say or tell about the audience?
– Is there a social or cultural change for the 1 century person?
– Make a theological statement based off the parable. In other words what does it say about God/Jesus or the Kingdom of God?
Objective of this reflection:
This Assignment is to help us textually analysis a parable from the Gospels for its theological implication to the Gospel community and the 1st century person.
