主题:the parable of the Sower as Intentional Ambiguity

讲座摘要:Parables are commonly understood as fictitious narratives intended to elicit better understandings. However, with scholars such as Charles Hedrick, I argue that parables are better understood by recognizing their poetic features and operations. Cognitive poetics provides a framework to understand how the original auditors would have selectively understood and interpreted Jesus’s parables in the New Testament as gnostic and poetic secret knowledge. Their meaning is revealed fully only to the select few, making them riddles to the general population purposely. By recognizing the essentially poetic nature of this innovative form, we are enabled to recognize the inaccuracies and inadequacies of standard and conventional interpretations of biblical parables.
