The Alternative

The Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation,
Brad H Young, Hendricksen, 1998
Chapter 11, "The Find" (pp. 199-221), page 199-200

Brad Young continues to debate the significance of the two short kingdom parables:

Jeremias, for example, strongly rejects the idea that these parables merely call upon the disciples for heroic action. The core message is not the cost of discipleship. Rather, the news of Jesus' preaching made the heart glad. Jeremias understands the parable as stressing above all else the great joy of discovering the kingdom.

Do you see the difference between the two approaches?

Do the parables teach Christology or the inner gladness one experiences at hearing Jesus' preaching of grace?
