Historicizes Joachim Jeremias's work on the parables of Jesus and its anti‐Jewish rhetoric by attending to the time and place of the book's first publication, Germany in 1947. Oldenhage shows that the book is symptomatic not so much of Christian anti‐Judaism in general but, much more specifically, of the difficulties of responding to the Holocaust in Germany shortly after the events. The chapter draws from Alexander and Margarete Mitscherlichs's thesis of an “inability to mourn” as well as from more recent discussions of German responses to the Holocaust.

Keywords:   anti‐Judaism, Germany, Holocaust, Joachim Jeremias, mourn, parables of Jesus
