Middle Eastern View of Jesus’ Parables To Be Subject of Five-Day Seminar “THE PARABLES OF JESUS IN LUKE: A Middle Eastern View,” a five-day seminar exploring both Theology and Ethics in parables that are often marginalized as major sources for understanding Jesus as a theologian, will be offered by the Maryknoll Mission Institute from Sunday, June 24, through Friday, June 29, 2012 at the Maryknoll Sisters Center, 10 Pinesbridge Road, Ossining.
Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Kenneth E. Bailey, Th.D., a Presbyterian minister and biblical scholar, the program will explore the Middle East as the setting for the famous parables of Jesus.
Canon Ken Bailey taught New Testament in the Middle East for 40 years using Jewish, Syriac, and Arabic sources, often overlooked and rarely considered. Through these sources, this program aims to approach the parables in Luke’s Gospel from a new angle, shedding new light on Jesus as a citizen of the Middle East.
