The renowned biblical scholar, author of The Misunderstood Jew, and general editor for The Jewish Annotated New Testament interweaves history and spiritual analysis to explore Jesus' most popular teaching parables, exposing their misinterpretations and making them lively and relevant for modern readers. Jesus was a skilled storyteller and perceptive teacher who used parables from everyday life to effectively convey his message and meaning. Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today, and many traditional interpretations of Jesus' stories ignore this disparity and have often allowed anti-Semitism and misogyny to color their perspectives. In this wise, entertaining, and educational book, Amy-Jill Levine offers a fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus' narratives. In Short Stories by Jesus, she analyzes these "problems with parables," taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. Levine reveals the parables' connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs and morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us--and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.… (mais)

Helpful exploration of original audience interpretations and combatting stereotypical and harmful assumptions of a Jewish audience. Writing style is VERY conversational at times and distracted this reader from what was read for scholarly review. ( )

A deep dive into the parables, Levine peels back layers of platitudes that have attached themselves to Jesus' words over the centuries, revealing stories that disturb and inspire. ( )

Took up the book two or three times over the years but just couldn't get into it; did not bother to analyze why.

Fair warning that this is not light reading - the writing is more academic in its approach. Dr. Levine is professor of Jewish Studies and professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. She reframes some of the most well known parables of Jesus, exploring them not from a modern Christian perspective, but taking the vantage point of Jesus' Jewish audience in the first century, the original listeners for these parables. She is thorough in her exploration of the various ways we understand these parables today, but ends each chapter (every parable is its own chapter) with a socio-historical as well as linguistic perspective that offers some insight into the way Jesus' original audience might have heard and interpreted these stories. There is some wonderful insight for Bible study and sermons here, as well as a deeper understanding of cultural and historical settings in which Jesus lived and taught. It is a refreshing approach to hearing meanings for these parables that may have gotten lost as they have been claimed by a more Christian perspective over the years. Levine doesn't insist that her interpretations and understandings are the 'right' ones only offers the insight of a practicing Jewish scholar and historian; an insight that offers tonality, depth, and shading to the words of Jesus.
