Eric Ottenheijm – De parabels van Jezus en van de Rabbijnen als ‘media’ van Tora

This study provides the outline of the Research Project ‘Parables and the Partings of the Ways’, a comparative reading of Rabbinic and synoptic parables (Utrecht and Tilburg Universities, 2014–2019). It delineates the status quaestionis of comparative parable research, focusses on issues of form and rhetoric of parables and argues a multi-faceted methodology to study parables as religious media or ‘sensational forms’ in several contexts of teaching Torah. The development of the genre may also attest to the growth and separation of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism.
