F608 The Parables of Jesus
The Parables of Jesus
Tuesdays, 11:50-1:15, June 19-July 10
Instructor: Steven C. Goldman
We will examine Jesus’ use of parables as a means of teaching about the nature, character, and will of God; the foibles and possibilities of humans; and the obligations of humans toward each other and their Creator. Many of Jesus’ most well-known parables will be analyzed and discussed, including the different ways these parables have been understood as guides to Christian doctrine.
Steven C. Goldman is the chair of OLLI’s Religious Studies program planning group and has taught numerous courses on alternative understandings of Biblical doctrine.
