Abstract

In Parables in Changing Contexts new venues in the comparative study of parables are addressed by scholars of Judaism, new testament, Buddhism and Islam. The volume shows how parables are suitably adapted in terms of form and rhetoric to enhance religious identity. They make the sacred present, be it often as riddles or encoded, in all cases invoking the listeners active interpretative faculty. This volume is number 35 in the series Jewish and Christian perspectives, a cooperative enterprise by two Dutch theological faculties and two universities in Israel.
