All serious teachers and expositors of the parables should profit from this book. Turner, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary “This book is well written and meticulously researched, worth reading for its innumerable footnotes alone. It interacts with a wide range of literature of all shades. Graham, Glasgow Bible College “It is good news when a good book on an important topic gets a new lease of life.

Blomberg’s book is lucid, well-informed and reliable, and I warmly welcome this new updated edition. I think he makes as good a case as possible for his position that Jesus’ parables are allegories, and in the course of his exposition of the individual parables usually ensures that there are some new insights even for interpreters who disagree with him.

His updated discussion of the history of parable research, and his attention to recent developments in parable theory, te be welcomed by everyone. Blomberg’s Interpreting the Parzbles is more than an accessible and reliable guide to the history of parable interpretation and the exegetical methods that have been applied to the parables in recent research.

Blomberg’s nuanced defense of allegory as a valid approach to parable interpretation is a worthwhile contribution to contemporary scholarship. His provocative contention that the parables of Jesus contain implicit Christological claims will be welcome to evangelical and other traditional Christian readers. Thomas More College, Canada.

Blomberg spend nearly pages discussing the history of the interpretation of the parables. He advances his own approach, which is so obviously the correct one, and then uses it to organize his discussion of a number of parables. This covers about pages, While he clearly is a Christian, his beliefs rarely intrude into his analysis.

Indeed his approach allows him to get to the heart of any parable quickly. The books is insightful, educational and well written.

He concludes with a discussion of the theology of the parables, which I have not yet read. Great for theologians, b,omberg so good for lay people.

Much to complicated for the average person. Thank goodness I graduated from a Christian university. Blomberg gives an approach to the parables that is evangelical and Christ-centered.

That being said, it is far from being my favorite work on the parables, and I think, there are more helpful, thought-provoking works that have been written.

In a graduate course on Christ’s parables we used this as our standard text and were all a bit disappointed.

After doing our own exegesis of the parable texts we often found Blomberg’s assertions not compelling, especially when compared to the careful exegesis of Joachim Jeremias in his seminal and valuable though somewhat outdated work.


Capon’s work was also much more nuanced and critical, while still being challenging to our faith. I would recommend this work for pastors who want an overview of the interpretint or for seminarians who want an evangelical introduction, but I’d go elsewhere Jeremias, Capon, etc. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

The book is quite technical, but I truly respect the scholarship. This is not an “Easy Read” by any means, but if you want to drill down into the details of the parables, this is an excellent resource. Best comprehensive and orthodox interpretation of parables I’ve seen.

Pastors should definitely have a copy on their shelves. Among the better books on the parables. Te like the Greek word study aspects and there’s some good thought in this; however, authors have a difficult time keeping their own views out of the book when it comes to their particular religion and Blomberg is no different.

Wish they would keep their peculiar views Lutheran in this case as distinct from others separated such as forgiveness before repentance. One person found this helpful. Anyone preparing sermons on the blomverg of Jesus should have this book.
