Abstract

Do the parables of Luke hold the key to an understanding of the overall purpose of Luke's Gospel? This question is pursued by Greg W Forbes (2000) in a book entitled <i>The God of Old : The role of the Lukan parables in the purpose of Luke's Gospel</i>. Although the Lukan parables address a variety of subjects of a diverse nature, there is one unifying factor that runs like a golden thread through all the parables : a new vision of God. This vision seems new in-so-far as it presents a challenge to conventional Israelite perceptions regarding God at the time when the parables were written, but in fact, it is not new at all. It is a vision of the God of Old as witnessed in the Hebrew Scriptures. This article presents an overview of Forbes' book.
