Parables for Our Time

This chapter concludes by addressing the implications of this book for future work in New Testament scholarship. Oldenhage demonstrates what a post‐Holocaust reading of the parables of Jesus might look like. Focusing on the story of the Wicked Husbandmen, she seeks to develop an interpretation that critically makes use of literary criticism and that works explicitly with Holocaust memory. Oldenhage emphasizes the importance of situating parable interpretation as thoroughly as possible in specific cultural and rhetorical contexts. She also suggests possible ways for dealing with the parable's legacy of anti‐Judaism.

Keywords:   anti‐Judaism, Holocaust memory, literary criticism, New Testament scholarship, parables of Jesus
