The Parables Of Jesus by Joachim Jeremias hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
S. C. M. Press, 1955, Hardback in dust wrapper.
3rd impression. [First Edition: October, 1954]
From the cover: Professor Joachim Jeremias of Gottingen, the well-known Biblical scholar, has written a book about the Gospel parables in which he has sought to recover their original form and meaning. Like a skilful restorer of an Old Master, working with loving care and searching scholarship, he has freed the parables from the dust of allegorical and hortatory interpretations, and made them shine out afresh in all their pristine clarity and urgency. His book is a major event in Biblical scholarship, and will appeal, not only to the scholar, but to every faithful student of the Bible. The work has been translated by S. H. Hooke, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament Studies in the University of London.
