Jacob & the Prodigal: How Jesus Retold Israel's Story

£10.99

Product description

Israel, the community to which Jesus belonged, took it's name from their patriarch, Jacob. His story of exile and return was their story as well. In the well-known story of the prodigal son, Jesus reshaped this story in his own way and for his own purposes. In this comparative study of the Old Testament saga and the New Testament parable, Kenneth bailey unpacks the similarities freighted with theological significance and differences that often reveal Jesus' purposes equally. Here Bailey offers a fresh view of how Jesus interpreted Israel's past, his present and their future.
