The Wisdom Background and Parabolic Implications of Isaiah 6:9-10 in the Synoptics

Series:

Donald E. Hartley

The Wisdom Background and Parabolic Implications of Isaiah 6:9-10 in the Synoptics seeks to understand the divine act of fattening in Isaiah 6:9-10 and how it shapes one’s understanding of parables in the Synoptic Gospels. The author approaches the topic from within a wisdom matrix and lays an historical-exegetical foundation for understanding these and other critical passages in the New Testament. Readers will follow the Isaian text through varied traditions revealing a marvelous unity in terms of the divine action and the human condition. College and seminary courses focusing on hermeneutics, wisdom outside the wisdom corpus, and the Synoptic Gospels will find this book innovative, challenging, and provocative.
