Crisis and Hope: The Confrontation and Transformation of Eschatological Expectations Through Jesus' Use of Parables Details

This thesis explores the context of eschatological crisis in which Jesus delivered his parables and how Matthew's audience would relate to this context; the implication being that how the parables are interpreted and applied must be reconsidered. Jesus uses parables to confront Jewish eschatology, including the belief in an imminent restoration of Israel as a nation, and instead declares imminent judgment on Israel for their rejection of him. Matthew's audience would have related to the tension Jesus' parables created; specifically to the questions Jesus raised about who are included and excluded from the Kingdom and how Jesus' coming was connected with the Kingdom and Israel's judgment. Jesus' parables encourage his audience to put their hope not in a kingdom with national borders but in the inaugurated Kingdom of God.
